I had a major case with the state of Virginia involving cocaine charges and distribution charges I was indicted and I hired Pheonix Harris she was the best Lawyer I've ever had she is very in tune with the case and she will keep you up-to-date extremely responsive not to mention I was facing something like 40 to life and there was numerous amounts of evidence something like an OJ trial and ended up just getting probation. I have had many encounters with several lawyers across the state of Maryland DC and Virginia and this was the best experience I have ever had I would recommend that If you haveany trouble with the law especially a federal case better call pho.

I contacted Ms. Harris, among others, on a fraud allegations brought against me. She was the only lawyer who was genuinely interested in the knowing my case details instead of speaking in general terms like the others. She was the only lawyer I spoke to who logged into the court system and checked on my case details. She invited me for a consultation next day for an hour and 15 minutes! She reviewed all the paper work I had on me, asked all the right questions, and she develped a clear understanding about my.
Weighing my options and considering my financial situation I choose to go with a public defender, don't get me wrong.....she is not expensive at all, but I could not hire her without adding financial burden on myself. Few weeks later I emailed her back, as a courtesy, to update her on my final decision and for some reason I wrote about my frustrations with the public defender and about the case in general. Guess what.... and this was the shocker for me!.......she called my lawyer and asked him about the case and updates and emailed back with the updates.!!!!!!!! She left me speechless. She was absolutely under no obligation to do what she did but she did it.
I was only a prospect and she went out of her way to help me out. I Highly recommend Ms. Harris for her professionalism and her genuine compassion for her prospects, clients and work.

Since I've been home from prison I've found my self in the wildest situations. Twice I've been arrested and charged for crimes I didn't commit or know anything about, and on one occasion I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. With that being said I contacted Pheonix Harris. Since the very first consultation she's been there every step of the way providing excellent service. Beating every single case that came my way. Once your in the system it's hard to get out and stay out of trouble even if your walking the straight and narrow trouble some times finds you. I can honestly say I trust my life/freedom in Mrs. Harris hands.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Ms. Harris on a matter in the Eastern District of Virginia. She is dedicated, intelligent, and determined, and provides her clients with high quality, experienced and knowledgeable representation.
