A fourth generation resident of Nassau County, Harrison was raised in Fernandina Beach. He and his wife, Debra have made Fernandina their home and are raising their three sons, Hudson, Cameron and Jack, (fifth generation residents of Nassau County) here as well. Harrison graduated from Fernandina Beach High School, where he was an Honors student and a member of the National Honors Society and Varsity Golf Team.

He attended Florida State University for his undergraduate studies and received a Bachelor of Science in Business Management, and was the recipient of the Florida Bright Futures, Florida State University, and Nassau County Teen Court scholarships, and was a multiple time Dean's List member and a member in the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. Harrison received his Juris Doctorate from the Florida State University College of Law. During law school, he studied a semester abroad at Oxford University, was an Associate Justice on the Florida State University's Student Supreme Court, and spent a semester as a certified legal intern with the State Attorney's Office in Tallahassee, Florida, where he personally tried four jury DUI trials as a student intern.

Upon graduating law school, Harrison worked as an Assistant State Attorney in Florida's Second Judicial Circuit. Initially assigned to the criminal traffic division in Tallahassee, Florida, he handled thousands of misdemeanor traffic cases ranging from hit and runs to DUIs. After about a year as a misdemeanor prosecutor, he was promoted and assigned a felony caseload in Quincy, Florida, where he handled hundreds of felony cases ranging from drug possession to second degree murder. His jury trial experience as a prosecutor includes cases involving Second Degree Murder, DUI, Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, Armed Burglary, Aggravated Battery, and Failure to Register as Sex Offender. Harrison was personally responsible for taking over twenty cases to a jury trial during his time as a prosecutor.

In 2009, Harrison returned to Nassau County to join the family practice, Poole & Poole, P.A. Since that time, he has enjoyed working as a general practitioner and has assisted clients in the areas of civil litigation, estate planning and probate, criminal defense, business transactions, contracts, appeals, administrative hearings, mediation and arbitration, land use planning, real estate transactions, condominium and homeowners association issues, evictions, and much more. Giving back to the community has always been a major focus for Harrison. He served on the Board of Directors for the Nassau County Volunteer Center for nearly nine years, including two stints as its President. He also served on the Management Team for the Katie Ride for Life. He has volunteered as a coach for Nassau County Teen Court Mock Trial Competition Team. Harrison is currently on the Board of Directors for the Trinity Love Hoblit Foundation and the Jacksonville Area Legal Aid. He is also a member of the Advisory Council for the Katie Caples Foundation. Starting in 2010, Harrison began filling in as Judge for the Nassau County Teen Court, a diversionary program for teens facing criminal charges. Harrison took over full-time responsibility as Teen Court Judge in 2018. He has also coached youth soccer. As an attorney, Harrison has provided pro bono services to needy individuals and has assisted several local, non-profit organizations at no cost, including the Shrimp Festival Committee, Elm Street Sportsmen Association and Trinity Love Hoblit Foundation.

Harrison Poole knows much about his business. He does research and consults with his partners to come to a game plan that will work for you. He knows the Florida Statutes and case law and will fight for you, and keeps you up to date with how things are going with your case "Daily". He is very busy, but makes you feel your case is very personal to him, and remembers all of the details, when speaking with you. I HIGHLY recommend him if you have need of an attorney. He will let you know from the get go, whether he thinks you have a fighting chance to win, or whether you are beating a dead horse, and should forget it. He is Trustworthy and honorable, and should be sought after, to help you, and is reasonable on his fees.
