Born and raised in Detroit, Attorney Harris began his legal career after he served in the US Air Force Reserves where he achieved distinction as Honor Graduate. At 37 years old he graduated from Dallas Baptist University with a 4.0 G.P.A., obtained his Juris Doctorate from Detroit College of Law in 1991, and passed the Bar shortly thereafter.
He began practicing in his own law firm hiring more seasoned attorneys to assist him with his cases. Several years later, he opted for a solo practice involving Criminal defense, Federal practice, Divorce, Family law, and Real estate (as a former Real Estate Broker). He has enjoyed a remarkable career, mostly defending violent offenses, e.g. Murder, Car-Jacking, Assault, and CSC (Rape). In 23 years of practice he has no client convictions in Federal Court where his client was sentenced to a day of jail time. He acclaims his best criminal work is negotiations during investigations.
He feels deeply for family and he enjoys a successful Divorce, Family practice.
He is the author of nine (9) books; mostly novels. He has written over a thousand legal answers online, (free of charge) on an array of legal subjects (Avvo.com) and five (5) legal guides to date.
He has a reputation as a fierce advocate, experienced in the courts, resourceful and successful; often exceeding his client's hopes.
He asks, “Do you need an attorney? Call me, perhaps I can help.”
