Russell takes time to ensure clients understand the process, costs, emotional toll and potential outcomes of a case before he begins work on a file. When he does begin, Russell is able to contribute to the legal discussion immediately. He does not get mired in the theoretic legal argument; he is pragmatic, persistent. His client-focused approach results in regular and extensive reporting to his clients.

Russell is a Sessional Instructor in the Faculty of Continuing Education at the University of Calgary. Since 2018, he has delivered the course, Construction Contract Law and Documents. Local members of the construction industry including project managers, architects, engineers, contract administrators, and owner/operators attend this course. Russell mentors new lawyers joining Goodfellow & Schuett Law by encouraging them to assist for a semester and gain an overview of this essential aspect of construction law.


Russell gets out on the weekends to bike, hike, and ski in the mountains, or he plays hockey, recreational soccer, and ultimate closer to home. As a dad to three active daughters, he cheers them on at the rink and on the soccer field.


Russell is a former teacher passionate about bilingual learning. To instill this in his family, he enrolled his children in Spanish Immersion schools.
