    • I do not recommend Donald Harris.

    Case: Post-Divorce/custody/child support.

    Mr. Harris refused to call willing doctors for my medical condition and witnesses to rebut hearsay, late evidence and present key testimony to defend my case. He failed to object to the illegal subpoena of opposing counsel which revealed privileged and modest-inheritance information without notice to the other party (myself) to object per the specific rules of subpoenas. Child support was doubled and made retroactive Contrary to State statutes specifically written to insure fairness to both parties involved. I was held in contempt even though I was current with child support. I later found out the judge and opposing counsel were close family friends. Mr. Harris failed to properly litigate my case and protect my Constitutional right against arbitrary loss of liberties. He refused to file objections even when presented with supporting case law and clear statutes, and refused to appeal leaving me to fend for myself against my fixed case, extortion and bias, leading me to spend five days in jail for money I did not have and with diagnosed PTSD. As a direct result of the hearing, ex was gradually unjustly enriched in the amount of 60K while I was left wide open for non income monies to be plundered. Due to lack of care for a well paying client and innocent single mother, I now have nothing and am struggling to raise my Special Needs son without child support.

  2. Great legal strategy and planning. and execution that allowed me to obtain a great outcome.

    • I recommend Donald Harris.
    • I hired Donald 1-3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 7 matter.

    Harrris is the most comforting attorney I have worked with, he was able to always explain the case strategy and mechanics so that I was less anxious about my case and I was able to stay informed.

    • I recommend Donald Harris.
    • I hired Donald more than 3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I have worked with other lawyers in the past, but after I retained Mr. Harris I immediately started seeing results. Mr. Harris has extensive knowledge pertaining to the laws in New Mexico and always appeared in
    court prepared, and always advocated for my rights as a father. Ultimately Mr. Harris prevailed, on behalf
    of me, with the courts awarding me custody of my infant daughter. I strongly recommend Mr. Harris as
    A Family Law attorney. He is not only an excellent litigator, but a very compassionate human being. Thank you again for all you have achieved for me and my daughter.

    I consulted with Mr. Harris recently and he was extremely positive and knowledgeable. His command of the law was impressive and he was able to explain matters clearly and to offer a plan of action. He spent a good amount of time in order to answer all of my questions. I strongly recommend him.

    Thank You Donald for your advice although we were hoping that we may stand a chance of having the suit dismiss your explanation of what would really be required to win allows us to focus on the next action to take.
