In his first year as an undergrad, Russell DePersia attended Albright College in Reading, Pennsylvania, where he pursued his studies and the sport of basketball with equal passion. After his freshman year at Albright, Russ transferred to Rutgers University in Camden where he completed his four year varsity basketball career.

Upon graduating from Rutgers Law School in 1992, Russ served a clerkship with the Honorable M. Allan Vogelson, Judge of the Superior Court of New Jersey. On November 3, 1997, he started his own practice by creating the Law Firm of Russell Anthony DePersia.

Russ will never compromise when representing a client; each and every client deserves and receives his full attention and best efforts. He represents every client as if he were representing himself. After just one conversation with Russ, a client feels confident that they have come to the right place.

An adventurer at heart, Russ enjoyed boxing on the amateur and professional levels and playing semi-pro football.
