About Russell

If you ask Attorney Russell Scott Briggs what is the best thing about being a lawyer, he would say it is the personal relationships forged with the individuals that he represents. With an honest and open attorney-client relationship, bad circumstances are forged into enriching solutions. Russ is personally invested in each case and believes that the client should expect and receive personal attention, including one-on-one communication with their lawyer. This is exactly the kind of legal representation he provides as a trial lawyer atFibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs.

Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 1990, Russ Briggs represents clients in Texas and throughout the United States. His practice areas include personal injury matters, including pharmaceutical litigation, product liability, admiralty and maritime cases, commercial litigation, automobile litigation, and premises liability cases.

As an active participant in the Ephedra Diet Supplement litigation, Russ Briggs has spoken at seminars concerning his experience in the matter, and is recognized as a leader in the eventual nationwide settlement of the trial. He is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates ("ABOTA"), recognized as one of the nation's premier trial lawyer organizations-and was included in the Super Lawyers® list by Thomson Reuters in 2009 and 2010.

In his free time, Russ is a bible study teacher and deacon at Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, and he frequently runs half marathons across the country. He also enjoys wade fishing for trout and redfish, and firmly believes that there nothing more beautiful in nature than the sun rising over a Texas gulf coast marsh.
