Great even outside his expertise.
I never met a nicer, smarter, and honest lawyer. Yes, many think that is an oxymoron, in most cases, maybe. But, not with Mr. Harris. He went above and beyond to get me out of a bind, and he was so cunning and amazing, and won the case, making the other party look guilty as sin, and she was. One sharp cookie! Highly recommend.

31 Years My Friend and Lawyer
Robert Harris was one of the first business leaders that I met when I moved to the Jacksonville area in 1984. We were introduced by a mutual acquaintance socially which led to a business relationship. At about the same time that Robert partnered with Dennis Guidi and Alan Rosner, I started a full service Commercial Real Estate Company in Jacksonville. He helped me set up my company and later became my Landlord leasing me my first commercial office space. Robert Harris has been my personal attorney ever since and he in association with his Partners have helped me with a myriad of legal issues. Commercial Litigation, Personal Injury and General Corporate/Business Law are areas in which I have sought the counsel and expertise of Robert Harris. Robert is a very bright, articulate and knowledgeable Attorney. He has remained my attorney for such a long period of time, not only because of his expertise, but because he is a trustworthy, loyal friend who has always put my best interest first in all of our dealings. Over the years I have referred a number of my friends and business associates to Robert and his firm. I always feel confident in doing so because I know that they too will get the same personal touch and expert representation and counsel that I have received over the years.

Great firm!
We have had numerous personal injury cases with Mr. Harris' law firm and have thoroughly enjoyed working with the entire group. They have a long, positive history in Jacksonville and truly care about each client they take cases for. In addition to being very knowledgeable and open minded to every legal angle, they give the client a caring, personable approach to each issue and aggressively pursue the solution to the issue at hand. I would recommend them to help you with any legal issue you may be contending with.

excellent group of attorneys
I had the pleasure of having a very competent representative (Mr. Harris) to handle a case involving the board of medicine, not only did he keep me well informed, but because of his due diligence, the case was dismissed and I was completely exonerated. I have found his firm to be very personal and caring with their clients, wouldn't recommend anyone else.
