Excellence all around
Robert is a trusted colleague of mine and I have personally witnessed the quality of his work. Robert is what you think of when you think of a LAWYER LAWYER, the type that is depicted (positively) in the movies. He is sharp, skilled in trial advocacy, and skilled in understanding complex legal issues. More importantly though, he is a great person and trustworthy. I would not doubt recommending him for any civil matter.

He's Excellent
Robert Harris is a serious attorney that pays close attention to detail. Nothing will slip by him....and I mean nothing. He thinks fast and is very crafty so the opposition will have to wake up 2 days early to catch him. He's honest and upfront about the likelihood of victory so that you don't waste your time. He's also very easy to talk to and keeps you informed about every detail of the case so you can make good decisions; also doesn't nickel and dime you in the billing process. I wouldn't have anyone else represent me in employment matters except Attorney Harris and his firm. Not only did he win my case, but he's won every case I've referred to him since.

Attorney Harris is simply the best!
Robert was very professional and respectful in regards to my emotional state, when I first contacted him as a potential client. It felt like I was in a safe space while he was representing me; I felt secure. Throughout the entire process of his representation, he kept me in the forefront, and in the know of all procedures regarding my case. If there was something that needed an explanation, he would definitely make sure I understood everything, and used conversational English with me, not the lawyer jargon that he was accustomed to. He returned calls and emails promptly, and if he was in the office, he was always eager to meet with me, even if I was not scheduled to meet with him. Robert is very passionate about all of his cases. It felt as if he took his cases personal. When I hurt, he hurt right along with me. On days that I was frustrated, I saw the frustration in his eyes as well. Bottom line, he made me feel like family. It was as if I had my big brother fighting for me. That's what I loved about Robert. At the end of the day, if your case is outside of his perameters, he will connect you with people who share his same philosophies.
