About Me

Mr. Harris showed early signs in his legal career of his knowledge and exceptional skills as a lawyer. Three months after his admittance to the Bar, he was appointed Washington County Public Defender, in St. George, Utah.

In 2002, Mr. Harris joined one of Nevada's premier personal injury law firms. It was during this time, he gained invaluable knowledge and experience representing less fortunate individuals against major insurance companies.
