I would recommend Mr Lord for any business services. Although I have not hired him as of yet, I most certainly will be. He spent time talking to me and explaining some things that other attorneys will not discuss until you have hired them. His initial advice was sound and professional. The review titles used for his other 5 star reviews are exactly what I would use to describe Mr. Lord.

I'm dealing with two issues with contractors. It's our first time having to go to court. We're not quite sure if our case should be in small claims or in district court and trying to find a lawyer which handles what we're dealing with has been trying.
I'm sure there are plenty out there but you're going to have to pay $100 to $200 to find out if a lawyer is a fit for you in most cases.
Everybody other than Harrison, only would say come in and pay our fee and we'll see if we can help you.
Harrison asked us to type up the details of our issue. It was probably a good 2 or 3 page email. He read through it and called me. He spent 15 minutes on the phone advising to first go to small claims and if that didn't work out to file an appeal and how to do so.
He is not the cheapest but gave a truthful answer as to why. It's not clear if we'll need his services before all this plays out. I don't usually write reviews unless I have a problem. However, in this realm it was refreshing have somebody care about doing the right thing without taking your money first and seeing if they can help you with what's right for them.
Thank you Harrison. This is stressful having somebody like you take 10 minutes to listen and give us honest feedback helped a lot.

I HIRED HARRISON LORD, TO HANDLE A MATTER INVOLVING A REAL ESTATE COMMISSION OWED MY FIRM. I FOUND HIM TO BE ETHICAL AND FORTH -COMING IN ALL OUR DEALINGS. ALTHOUGH I WAS OFFERED A SETTLEMENT BY THE DEFENDANT, HARRISON ENCOURAGED ME TO RESIST THE TEMPTATION AND HOLD FOR A BETTER OFFER. WITHIN WEEKS HARRISON SETTLED THE MATTER FOR A CONSIDERABLY HIGHER AMOUNT. I AM PLEASED WITH THE FINAL RESULT AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIS SERVICES FOR ANY LEGAL DISPUTE THAT COMES YOUR WAY.
