I am a lifelong resident of the Mississippi Delta, the birthplace of the Blues.  I am married with 3 children and my hobbies include oil painting, fly fishing, hiking and biking.   For me, the pracitice of law is not just a noble profession; it is an opportunity to make a difference in the life of someone who has been wronged and to ensure that the courts and justice are available to everyone, not just the wealthy and powerful.

Mr Harris is a very smart and keen attorney. As my attotney Mr Harris as always honest and straight forward with the answers he gave me.This gave me the confidence that Mr Harris was going to work as hard as he could to win my case and get me the best settlement that he could. And that is exactly what he did. I could not be more pleased with the settlement that I received. Mr Harris is not just about business, he cares about people and helping them. In my opinion Mr Harris is the best.

The Smart Choice
Throughout our business affairs, there have been several situations arise that required legal aid to achieve a satisfactory end result. With that being said, we had hired and worked with a few attorneys over the course of 5 years before meeting Noel Harris. The case that brought us to Noel was one involving a contractor that became impossible to work with and who was unwilling to finish his work to the quality we desired and paid. We were left with what we thought was two options: settle on what we had at the time that was not satisfactory to us or sue the contractor. Noel did an excellent job advising us on the legal implications of our options. He quickly painted a realistic depiction of what a lawsuit would entail and advised to continue our dealings as amicably as possible to receive results that met our standards. The working relationship was damaged beyond repair and emotions had overtaken both parties involved. Despite the anger and despair of the contractor, Noel was capable and willing to successfully negotiate on our behalf. He was able to swiftly alter the situation so that both parties walked away satisfied. Noel Harris is an attorney of immense integrity and knowledge. We continue to consult with Noel on legal matters and have seen much success from following his advice.
