Russell L. Needell

Russ Needell was born and raised in New Jersey. As a young child he knew he wanted to be an attorney. His grandmother, grandfather, father and uncle were all practicing lawyers and he followed in their footsteps graduating from the Capital University Law School in 1981.

He was licensed to practice law in New Jersey and Pennsylvania in 1981 and Ohio in 1982, and is presently licensed and has practiced Law in North Carolina since 1993.

Upon graduation from Law School he was appointed to serve as a Judicial Clerk to the Honorable Richard J.S. Barlow in the New Jersey Superior Court. Thereafter, he served as an Assistant City Attorney in Columbus, Ohio from 1982-1984.

He entered private practice where he represented insurance companies and defended claims filed by injured people from 1985 -1992.

Over the years it became apparent that insurance companies were not sympathetic or fair to those injured. Thus, in 1993, after relocating to Charlotte, North Carolina, he joined a Plaintiff’s law firm and began representing folks throughout the State seeking to obtain fair compensation for injuries suffered in automobile and trucking collisions, and by defective products, or as a result of work-related accidents [workers’ compensation attorney].

Russ joined the Kellum Law Firm in 1997 where he has been a Trial Attorney and continues to take great pride in representing seriously injured clients throughout eastern North Carolina for more than 20 years.

Russ is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum having demonstrated excellence by achieving settlements in excess of $1,000,000. He is an active member of the North Carolina Academy of Trial Lawyers.
