Remarkable advocate
Mr. Harris was familiar with my needs at the time of our initial consultation. He laid out a plan of action and followed through exactly the way he had prepared me for. Raymond Harris is a champion to have on your side.

Estate and Probate Handling
After my brothers early death that left no will or estate, Raymond assisted me with the Probate process. After our initial conversation and meeting, I was confident that he was the Attorney I should use. While going though Probate, Raymond was professional throughout; he always returned phone calls/e-mails swiftly, and sent reminders and updates of important dates. The long process of Probate became painless. I would describe Raymond as: Courteous, Professional, Ethical, Knowledgeable, Prompt, Focused. I would highly recommend his service.
