- Managing Partner
My name is Joseph Ireland. I am one of the firm's managing partners. Since my first year of law school, I knew I wanted to be a trial attorney. I am proud to say I followed my passion and have never given up my drive to become one of the best attorneys in my field.
On my journey, I have been fortunate to gain more courtroom experience than most will ever see. I started off working in a high-volume plaintiff's personal injury firm, it was baptism by fire. Eventually, my career took me to a firm that specialized in complex litigation all across the country. Many of the cases I worked had catastrophic damages and involved cutting edge legal issues against the best litigators in the country.
In 2010, I decided it was time to open my own firm and begin building my own local practice. That decision has been deeply rewarding and provided me the opportunity to represent more than 1,000 minors and their families. Today, Russell & Ireland Law Group, LLC has grown into a highly successful litigation firm that is proud of the way it helps its clients and community.
When I am not representing clients, I enjoy hiking, camping, and soccer. I volunteer as a soccer coach for the YMCA and can never say no to a home improvement project.
