I hired Jeffrey Harris Esq. after a very disappointing experience with a different attorney. My divorce case had been dragging on thanks to that other lawyer and the tension between my ex and I worsened as he believed the delay was my fault since he did not know/believe my first attorney was being unprofessional and unresponsive.
Mr. Harris is an extremely diligent attorney. The day I contacted him I was very distressed and I told him of my issues with my first attorney. He was comforting and immediately fixed the problem. I asked if he could take over as my attorney and told him that I needed to get things underway ASAP. Within an hour he had sent me the necessary Change of Attorney forms and contacted the previous attorney to tell him. He responded to me immediately and helped me through what was a very difficult time (divorce) for anyone. He is very professional and knowledgeable. Thanks to him an agreement has been made between my ex and I, regarding spousal support, and I am looking forward to moving on from an unhappy situation.
I am very grateful for his help, counsel and patience. I know I was emotional at times, particularly as I have serious health issues to contend with, but he always remained calm and kind to me. He goes above and beyond what the average attorney would do for a client and I really appreciate it. I absolutely recommend him to those looking for counsel.
Jeffery is the BEST RELIABLE lawyer I have ever came across, he's determined to get your case in and out of court fast and efficiently. He made sure that all of my personal issues and case issues were in order and accurate to the courts system. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who is dealing with family ordeals and he will start your case immediately. Very professional and very sincere in his work.
I heard about Jeff while searching for an attorney, I met with a few but I didn't feel as if they really cared. The moment I sat down with Jeff he understood my situation and I left our meeting feeling more at ease. My ex wanted to keep me a every other weekend type of dad and I am not that type of man. I wanted to spend as much time as possible with my daughter. Every time we had a hearing we left the court with an increase in my time and I now have joint physical and legal custody of my daughter. I couldn't be happier with Jeff and the outstanding results he was able to deliver for me. He has a very unique way of being fierce towards the opposing counsel yet very compassionate and understanding to the situation as a whole. I would HIGHLY recommend Jeff to anyone, I would have been lost without him in a very flawed judicial system. I am eternally grateful to him.
Jeff worked on my prenuptial agreement a few months ago. He was helpful with all of my questions and easily accessible when I needed to contact him. The process was completed in a timely manner. And he has answered follow up questions I have had after the contract signing date. A professional and pleasant experience all around. Recommended.
Jeff Harris is hard-working, personable and professional. He would be neutral and unbiased as a mediator but a zealous advocate as a lawyer. Plus, he is well-connected and excellent at accomplishing legal research tasks, so he would make a superb lawyer to have on your team.
Hands down the best attorney ever! He fights for what's fair & helps you stand your ground. I was referred to him by a paralegal because my case was getting more complicated. Honestly, I couldn't have been referred to a better attorney. I'm 100% satisfied with his legal help & definetly will return to him if I ever have to go to court again. He gave me & my daughter peace of mind & am extremely grateful for all his hard work. Thanks Jeff! We appreciate it a lot!
This is a great attorney who will be ohnest and upfront about how he can help you in your case. He does not promise you things that you want to hear to just get money out of you. He is great in court and has a strong demand in court. He is very knowledgeable about the law . I have already recommended him to others who need a good attorney.
I am extremely lucky to have found Jeff. I previously had another family law attorney represent me in my divorce. My prior attorney let my case languish, failed to return my phone calls, and racked up exorbitant attorneys' fees. I was happy to discover that Jeff was the exact opposite. He charged a reasonable flat rate and was able to get all property and contentious child custody issues resolved within a few months of receiving my file, which I thought was unbelievable given the unreasonableness of my ex-spouse.
I am an attorney, and Jeff had the added layer of difficulty in impressing a season litigator. Jeff was the right balance of empathy, aggressiveness, persistence, and diplomacy. It was Jeff's doggedness and negotiation ability with opposing counsel that helped finalize my entire divorce. Because of Jeff, I am able to move on with my life.
I have hired Jeff when my wife took my child and left me with out letting me know. I had all kinds of false allegations made by my former wife. I called Jeff once I got back into town and from day one Jeff has been outstanding he got the TRO dropped and also got me visitation with my daughter and we are still in the mist of getting 50/50 custody. He is on point and answer his phone whenever you call him even when he's on vacation he answered my phone calls. If you have a child custody and divorce case I highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed. Thank you very much Jeff for all you have done are still doing for me.
During my divorce, Jeffrey was professional, knew exactly what needed to be done with my case. My divorce involved international law in a complicated country and he knew the ins and outs of how to go about it. I trusted him every step of the way. He picked up the phone every time I called and answered and re-answered all of my concerns and questions patiently without judgment. I would definitely use him again and recommend him in the highest regard. He gets the job done.
