Attorney Felice Harris began her legal career as an appellate attorney with the Office of the Ohio Public Defender and, after mastering the complexities of post-conviction practice, prosecuted misdemeanor offenses with the Columbus City Attorney. Shortly after returning to the OPD, she began supervising the Juvenile Division where she managed on and off-site staff, prepared budgets, drafted grants, spoke at conferences, testified before the Ohio legislature, and collaborated with local and state agencies.
In 2009, Attorney Harris opened her first solo practice, handling delinquency, criminal, A/N/D, and appellate matters. The consummate learner, Ms. Harris holds a Master’s degree in Counselor Education in addition to a J.D., and was awarded the CUNY Graduate Center Presidential MAGNET Fellowship (2003 – 2007) as she pursued a Ph.D. in Criminal Justice.
Attorney Harris is licensed to practice law in Ohio, the Federal District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of Ohio, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.
