Listed in Best Lawyers since 2007

Russell Post is a board-certified appellate specialist. For the last 15 years, following his clerkship with the Hon. Jerry Smith of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, he has dedicated his practice to civil appeals. He has acted as lead counsel in over 50 appeals and has participated in countless others, preparing briefs and presenting oral arguments to the Texas Supreme Court, the Texas appellate courts, and the Fifth Circuit.

Russell represents both plaintiffs and defendants, practicing in a wide range of substantive areas. In addition to his core appellate practice, he is frequently engaged at earlier stages of litigation to handle litigation strategy, complex legal issues, and the jury charge – focusing on the big picture and developing strategies with the appellate endgame in mind. 

Recognized by his peers in publications such as Benchmark, Chambers USA, Best Lawyers in America, and Thomas Reuters Super Lawyers – Texas, Russell takes greater pride in his written and oral advocacy on behalf of each client. Every appeal is a new opportunity to advance the interests of the client and the rule of law, and Russell takes both responsibilities seriously.
