  • Sean Egan Coonerty

    Richard Harris and The Harris Group are the best Worker's Compensation lawyers I have ever worked with. As a Personal Injury attorney, I exclusively refer my clients who were hurt at work to Mr. Harris. The Harris Group is incredibly efficient and responsive. They give their clients more individual attention than any other Worker's Compensation attorney in New York.

  • Roman Aminov

    Richard Harris is a renowned workers compensation attorney with a track record of results for his clients. It has been a pleasure working with him on a variety of legal matters. His ability to navigate the labyrinth maze of workers compensation law is a relief for clients both with simple and complex cases. I highly endorse Mr. Harris and his office.
