We at Meshbesher & Spence remember with deep respect and admiration our co-founding partner and namesake, Russell Morgan Spence, Sr., who passed away peacefully at his farm in Spring Valley, WI. Russ’s journey from a hardworking farm boy in Amboy, Minnesota to a distinguished attorney and partner at Meshbesher & Spence is a testament to his determination, brilliance, and unwavering commitment to justice.

Russ’s professional legacy is characterized by his unparalleled expertise in personal injury law, where he mentored numerous trial attorneys and connected with juries to secure groundbreaking recoveries for his clients. His approach to law was as unique as his life story, combining sincere empathy with a sharp legal acumen. His passion for golf, hunting, and spending time with his family and friends showcased his deeply engaging personality that so many cherished.

As we bid farewell to a man who ‘did it his way’, we remember Russ – not just as a lawyer – but as an inspiring figure who touched countless lives. He leaves behind a family that he adored, a professional legacy that will continue to guide and inspire, and memories in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing him.
