Professional Activity

In his early career, Russ spent six years in a variety of roles with Goldman Sachs & Co., with the final three years as a Financial Analyst in the Private Wealth Management division. In that role, Russ worked with a team of financial advisors who managed $1.5 billion in assets for approximately 30 families, many of whom held large single stock positions. He was responsible for asset allocation, trade execution and implementing options strategies where appropriate.

Russ has both a JD and an MBA (Magna Cum Laude) from Rutgers University in Camden, NJ and a BA in Economics and Political Science from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. He is licensed to practice law in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania and is a member of the American Bar Association and the New Jersey State Bar Association, as well as the Estate and Financial Planning Council of Southern New Jersey. He is on the Alumni Steering Committee of the Rutgers Center for Corporate Law and Governance.

Russ resides in Lumberton, NJ with his wife, Michelle, and their three children, Charlotte (10), Caroline (7) and Chip (3). He spends his free time unsuccessfully trying to come up with ways to get some free time, though he does occasionally squeeze in a bike ride or help out at his daughters’ softball games. The family looks forward to a week in Stone Harbor, NJ at the end of each summer.


You’ve spent your entire life working hard to accumulate all that you own. Wealth, property, homes, cars, valuables and priceless family heirlooms. But have you ever stopped to think about what might happen to all your assets should you get sick or die?


An “estate” consists of all of the items a person owns. These can include vehicles, bank accounts, retirement accounts, furniture, real estate, and life insurance. An “estate plan” is the method in which the estate is passed on to the next generation.
