Criminal Defense, Neglect/Abuse, and Family Law Attorney

Attorney Karri Russell opened MKG Legal in December 2021 because she wanted to create a law practice that fosters inclusivity and advocacy for the most vulnerable and marginalized communities. She is passionate about giving a voice to those who don’t through representation in both youth defense and neglect/abuse cases. Through a holistic, non-judgemental approach, Karri helps clients weigh different options to truly find the best solution forward. At MKG Legal, everyone is welcome, we are LGBTQ+ friendly, and we encourage each client to show up exactly how they are. We currently serve Muskegon, Ottawa, Allegan, Mason, and Oceana Counties.

The MKG Legal Difference

MKG Legal is a woman-owned, holistic legal counsel firm based out of Muskegon. In a male dominated field that touts aggression as the solution for justice, Karri offers clients a high-dignity and true advocacy approach. Instead of domineering tactics, she focuses on using professional, non-adversarial techniques to provide solutions and bring justice for clients. Karri is dedicated to meeting you where you are at and has a “whatever it takes” mentality. The preparation and care she puts into each case has helped to secure her numerous trial wins and she truly strives to be her client’s advocate both in and out of the courtroom.

Advocacy with Proven Results.

That’s the MKG Legal Difference.
