Russell Yauney – Family Law Attorney

Russell Yauney

Russell was raised in Sandy, Utah, where he met his wife in high school, although it took him many years to convince her to marry him.
He Joined the Army Reserves at 17. He participated in the ROTC in college, commissioned, and was deployed to Iraq from 2005-2006. He retired at the rank of Major. Russell took a break from his military obligations and served a religious mission to Dallas, Texas, for two years.
Russell graduated with his B.S. in philosophy from the University of Utah, where he also minored in business and military science. However, when the philosophy factory shut down, he decided to go to law school. Russell attended law school at Gonzaga for the first year, then transferred to and graduated from the S.J. Quinney School of Law at the University of Utah. During law school he received the CALI award for legal research and writing and was the student director of the Family Law Clinic for two years.
Russell opened his own practice immediately after being admitted as an attorney. He has practiced family law his entire legal career. He has been awarded the pro bono attorney of the year twice. Eventually, he wanted to slow down a little bit and spend more time with his family, and so after 13 years of running his own practice he joined Brown Family Law.
For hobbies, Russell thoroughly enjoys reading epic fantasy. He probably plays too many computer games and would give just about anything to have his wife’s exclusive attention. He loves his kids, except when they argue with him like they are attorneys.

What Clients Are Saying…
Brown Family Law
Based on 789 reviews
I had taken my boyfriend to brown law to handle what should have been an easy case for them. Everything took a turn and it became a very messy situation with the other parent. Andrew Christensen represented him and we were able to get everything settled amongst the parents (my boyfriend and his ex) to something they both were happy with, without having to go to trial or incurring any additional fees. Brown law is one of the best law firms I know of because of their lawyers (Andrew and Clay). They also sent us beautiful flowers to our house for the arrival of our new baby. I wouldn't recommend any other law firm to represent you in your hard times.
