Harris Nizel is the Managing Shareholder of Nizel Law, P.A.  He focuses his practice on employment law, civil litigation, and real estate.

 

Prior to becoming an attorney, Harris was a senior consultant and computer programmer for KPMG Consulting.  After graduating at the top of his law school class and receiving the highest score on the Florida Bar Exam in his judicial district, Harris began his legal career working for Greenberg Traurig.  While at that firm, Harris represented clients in a wide range of commercial transactions, negotiations, and disputes, with a focus on real estate-related matters.

 

Harris subsequently decided to focus his practice on trial work.  He joined the Broward County Public Defender’s Office where he tried numerous jury and non-jury trials on behalf of individuals charged with serious crimes.

 

Harris then returned to civil practice with Atherton, McAuliffe & Reeder, P.A., where his work focused on litigation in the areas of employment law, business litigation, and real estate.  Harris then created Nizel Law, P.A. – a modern law firm that uses technology to improve the delivery of legal services.

 

Harris' skill in employment cases and commercial matters, along with his substantial trial experience, uniquely position him to effectively represent clients in a wide range of employment, business, and real estate disputes at every stage in litigation, from guiding pre-suit strategy through trial.

Wonderful working experience
Mr.Nizel recently assisted me with a labor issue with a former employer. He was extremely easy to talk with (and I've talked to a few lawyers over the years) and made me feel completely at ease. He reviewed my position, summed it up and gave me possible options and outcomes.Most importantly, he acted very ethically and compassionately towards me and my situation and actually LISTENED. If the current situation I am in warrants legal representation, then I will not hesitate to engage Mr. Nizel services.

Good knowledgeable and personable attorney
Harris Nizel has counselled me through a number of questions I had related to my situation with employer. We spoke several times, he looked at my case carefully and gave me good objective advise, not only good in legal sense, but recommended the most realistic and practical action in my specific case. I highly recommended Harris Nizel.

Great professional
Absolutely excellent lawyer! high level professional. I am very pleased with the result, since we won my case. The most important thing is that the lawyer treats the case with all the responsibility and soul. Always been in touch at any time of the day and gave the right advice and recommendations. This is an honest and competent lawyer! I am proud that I was defended in court by H. Nizel!
