DWI case/ Domestic violence case
Daniel Harris got my DWI dismissed, which is rare in the state of NC. We went to trial for my case, and Daniel did his thing, he made a very good argument and the judge had no choice but to dismiss the charge. Thank you again Daniel Harris for everything you did for me this past year. He also got both my domestic violence charges dismiss as well. I would highly recommend Daniel and Harris law office. You will be hearing from me again to get my record expunge. Patience West

Works hard and very rersponsive
I have never dealt with a more responsive lawyer than Mr. Harris. He was straight forward, and kept me informed through the entire expungement process. When the state took forever to complete my background check, he even took the extra steps to have my expungement expedited by the county court when the background finally came back from Raleigh because we had to wait so long. He answered every e-mail in a timely manner and always provided detailed information about the status of my case.

Court case
Daniel was really helpful and responsive during my case. He made sure to attend court for me as promised and worked with me with the attorney fees. He made me feel comfortable to speak with him and spent time understanding my issues. I would definitely recommend him for anyone going through legal troubles.

Excellent representation
Daniel was a great choice for me. He was very professional, yet friendly and understanding. I felt no personal judgment from him, only the desire for the best outcome for my case. He was pro-active and was able to address some issues that could have caused more serious complications for me. He always seemed to be aware of everything that was occurring. I was always kept in the loop. I did not have to worry or wonder about what was developing. Daniel returned calls promptly and kept me aware of everything that was happening. We had no surprises that couldn't be adequately handled because of his dedication to his work. Something that could have resulted in life changing consequences for me, turned out very well within a fairly short time frame. I would recommend Daniel highly. He is intelligent, likable, professional, and he instills confidence. I also found his fee to be reasonable, especially with the few extra surprises he ended up dealing with.

Phenomenal Distant Representation
I could not have asked for better representation than that which I received from Mr. Daniel Harris. He was incredibly professional, respectful, and comforting throughout the process and stayed in contact with me every step of the way, following up even when I failed to return a phone call or missed e-mail. His work was thorough, honest, precise, and timely, allowing me to continue my daily obligations while still working towards my case's resolution. I felt as if he cared for my case as much, if not more, than I did which lifted a great burden from my shoulders. Thanks to him, my charges have been dismissed and I can now focus all of my attention on finishing school!

I was referred to Daniel through a friend of mine, and I must say that securing his services was one of the best decisions I've ever made. He was genuinely interested in helping me receive a fair outcome for my case, and went above and beyond to deliver the outcome I needed. If you are looking for an intelligent, caring, and extremely talented lawyer - then look no further. Daniel Harris is who you want. For me and my family, he's the only lawyer we will ever use going forward. It's that simple.

A Miracle
I reached out to Mr. Daniel Harris for a friend who was serving time and unhappy with his appointed attorney. Mr. Harris immediately responded with a quote before even meeting the client who was in jail. Mr. Harris showed up at the jail to meet with the client. Mr. Harris agreed to take on this case, even though his client had a history of crime dating back to 1991, and now being charged with many felonies, and habitual felon. It was much work on Mr. Harris's part, but when it was all said and done, I don't believe the outcome would have been the miracle it was. With 6 felon charges, Class H, plus 6 habitual felons, Mr. Harris was able to negotiate with the DA and Judge the day of sentencing. He was able to help his client with a miracle of timed served/then a drug program instead of many years in prison. He did a remarkable job, that I don't think many lawyers would have been so patient with a client like he took on. His communications where always quick responses. Mr. Harris took on a CASE bigger than I believe he thought it would be. He never gave up, and fought for his client, with passion, understanding, and professionalism. He did a remarkable job in my eyes, and believe he made a miracle happen. Thank you Mr. Harris for all your time, and responses in regards to this case.

Highly Professional and Competent
Daniel helped me resolve a traffic ticket in July, 2014. He was able to get a great result for me and I have been, and will continue to, recommend him for traffic/criminal litigation services. I came to him only a few days before the court date but he was able to handle my matter, including clearly explaining what my options were and the consequences associated with them.

A fantastic attorney!
I hired Daniel a year ago to handle a traffic ticket. I was very impressed by his professionalism and effectiveness as he got my ticket completely dropped. I would use Daniel again in a heartbeat and would recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.

Great Professional and Effective Lawyer
Daniel Harris represented me as an attorney recently. To start, I will say I was extremely pleased and relieved with both the legal results of his work as well as the guidance offered, and assurance provided, throughout the process. I recommend his services wholeheartedly. Daniel Harris provided expert legal advice, and was eager to do everything in his power to represent me honestly and effectively. His personality and demeanor is remarkable for an attorney of his age. He listens well to his clients and was very comforting as a confidant guide throughout my legal process. Mr. Harris was very open in his communication and clear about his strategy. It is always reassuring to have a solid, dependable voice in the room to explain the nuances of the situation at hand. Additionally, as someone who has had the privilege and advantage of observing many accomplished law professionals in a professional setting, I can tell you that Daniel Harris is uncanny in his ability to analyze the critical information in any situation. To reiterate, I fully endorse Daniel Harris as a legal professional and recommend his representation to any person.

Daniel Harris is an excellent attorney!
Daniel Harris is an excellent attorney. He's very knowledgable of the law, very passionate about helping people and he's a very nice guy. When Attorney Harris represented me, I saw him as more than just my lawyer but also a good friend. He is very honest, he listens to his clients and he was more than willing to answer any questions I had about my situation and the process I was going to go through. Attorney Harris advises his clients well on how he intends to help them to achieve their goal; just an all around great guy. It's very clear that he is an experienced lawyer because he carries himself in a very professional manner, he's well organized and well-spoken. Legal matters can be a very stressful experience to deal with but with him you will feel a lot better about your situation and will not feel any of the burden that comes with the legal process because he takes care of everything. I was more than satisfied with the results of his representation and would recommend him to anyone.
