About David Harris

About me

Although I once worked for large and medium sized law firms, I am now a sole practitioner who maintains an office in downtown Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, dedicated primarily to the individual consumer and taxpayer.


I practice in the areas of bankruptcy, tax, estate, business and real estate law and engage in litigation involving those practice areas.


I received a bachelors degree in history from the Pennsylvania State University, a law degree with honors from the University of Miami where I was the recipient of American Jurisprudence awards in Trusts and Estates and Administrative Law and a Master of Laws degree in Taxation from the New York University School of Law. 


I am a member of the Bars of the States of Pennsylvania and Florida, and am admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, and the United States Tax Court. I have been accorded an “AV” rating, the highest rating in the Martindale-Hubbell law directory. I also serve as a mediator in bankruptcy and estate matters.


I am particularly proud to be a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Lawyers.


I serve as well as an officer and on the boards of many civic and charitable organizations.
