A God Sent
The first encounter with Deborah, was great, and I never experienced an attorney who cares so much about their clients. Her passion for helping people words cannot explain.

Great attorney
After having a devastating injury Deborah Harris was recommended by former client. She is an exceptional attorney and communicates thoroughly and frequently. I did not feel alone throughout my recovery or litigation process. Thank you again

YOU COULD NOT ASK FOR ANYONE BETTER!
Thought I had left a review, but I guess I wasn't successful. Let me tell you: Deborah is an incredible attorney who understands the workings of Workers Compensation in and out, and is at the TOP of her game. She was literally one step ahead in any dealings we had with the often laborious and bureaucratic Workman's Compensation machine. Listen to her, trust her, and you can't go wrong!

A Lawyer that will work for you That's Mrs. Deborah Harris
Mrs.Deborah was recommended to us by our daughter. We live in Alabama and she met us in Newnan close to our home so we didn't have to travel so far. She gave us so much information in terms we could understand. Walked us through every step to get the treatment I needed She let us know their was a timeline and it was just about up. I had fell and messed up my knee and had to have 3 surgeries. When the Company"s insurance wouldn't treat me she took steps to get me the right treatment and therapy close to my home. Mrs. Deborah would always return our calls and she still checks on me a year after my settlement she has become a good friend. We wouldn"t be able to make it now if it wasn't for Mrs Deborah. Thank you Mrs.Deborah for all you did for us and making sure I was treated right.

Deborah Harris - the best lawyer in Georgia!!!!
Had it not been for Deborah Harris I would have walked away form my work accident without a job, no medical care and no compensation. I called her just in time. She made sure I received the medical care and compensation that I deserved. Ms. Harris really cares about her clients, and she fights for their rights. She does not take "no" for an answer when it comes to the clients well being. She returns calls promptly, answers questions thoroughly, and keeps you up to date on all of the happenings of the case. I can never thank her enough for everything she did for me. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants an attorney who works tirelessly for her client. Ms. Harris is the BEST!!

Deborah Harris the Right Lawyer for the Job!!!
If It had not been for Deborah Harris, I truly don't know where I would be right now. Probably in the street homeless. She was relentless in my workerscomp case. She certainly kept me informed as to what was happening, by phone and by mail. I would highly recommend Deborah Harris. She will get the job done. We won my case, thanks to Deborah Harris. She doesn't take her job lightly. She is serious.
