    Glenn is knowledgeable in his area, above many. He takes the time to truly understand his clients needs and expectations. He has been an advocate for me. I truly appreciate having Glenn not just as an advisor, but someone truly on my team.
    - Chris M.
    "We were thankful to have Glenn in our corner!"
    Glenn Russell went above & beyond to help my father and his wife stay in our childhood home until his passing in November 2022. He showed great compassion for my father and to our family after his passing as we settled his affairs, while displaying great tenacity in dealing with the big banks. Glenn gives the "little guy" a voice in what can be an overwhelming situation, facing foreclosure and displacement from your home. We were thankful to have Glenn in our corner!
    - Jim S.
    "Very Professional, with great experience and communication"
    This firm helped out a small business, that was preyed on by a broker; who sold deceitful cash advances with multiple lenders, as loans. Only to promise a consolidation after having a history in an one attractive loan. The broker then stated that we had to take another position, then another. Putting us in 3 cash advances and quickly bleeding us of hard-earned money with ridiculously high interest low pay back advances. Glenn F. Russell & Associates were the only firm that I could find that had an education and experience on these companies that prey on small businesses that could use capital and trap them into a situation that is only set up to fail a business. This firm was aggressive and go these companies we had positions with to finally agree to reconstruct them into actual loans with a reasonable interest rate and a longer term for repayments. If it wasn't for finding Glenn and his team. My company would have faced a very unfortunate alternative.
    - Pat G.
    "Calm, cool and collected with a sense of humor to alleviate the stress!"

    "The kind of professional you want on your team! THE ABSOLUTE BEST!"
    From the very beginning, it was clear Glenn was a passionate professional who would go above and beyond to answer his clients questions and make them feel confident in his services. He assisted me with MCA and business loan settlements that unequivocally saved our business and gave us piece of mind throughout the process. He is a very transparent attorney (which is rare, unfortunately now a days). He is upfront about the cost, without hidden leeway for extra billable hours that just continue to incur. He is responsive, available, kind and has a great sense of humor, which helps in stressful situation like these :) Could not recommend Glenn more. HE IS THE BEST! We are forever grateful for what he has done for us.
    - Christal B
    "Fearless consumer advocate!"
    I'd highly recommend Glenn. He is a great attorney, fearless consumer and civil rights advocate. I've met many attorneys but never met anyone close to Glenn's dedication and passion in defending consumers in wrongful and illegal foreclosures.

Aggressive Foreclosure Defense

After the passage of Massachusetts· An Act Preventing Unlawful and Unnecessary Foreclosures, it has become increasingly more difficult for entities to foreclose on homeowners. This legislation helps protect consumers and homeowners in Massachusetts. Essentially, the act forces financial entities and or mortgage securitization trusts, and their minions, to take lawful and reasonable steps before initiating a foreclosure action under Massachusetts statute.

Aggressive Merchant Cash Advance Defense

We are also one of the few, if not only, law firms in Massachusetts that has experience in the negotiation, settlement, and / or litigation, involving threats made against small business facing a default involving a Merchant Cash Advance [“MCA”]. We began taking on MCA clients in 2018, and have achieved some very successful settlement results on behalf of small business owners, see our Merchant Cash Advance page for some examples, also see one of our blog pages here. We have learned that there may be certain similarities to issues we have successfully raised in our 15+ years of unparalleled success in foreclosure defense matters that may be transferrable to these insidious business pay day loans.
