Considerate, Honest and a Great Asset to have on Your Side
I was referred to Keith Harris by a friend and I am grateful for that recommendation as the total experience was extremely positive from my first phone call to resolution. Keith demonstrated world-class professionalism, knowledge, not only of the Law but how to navigate the waters of the Collin County justice system, and resourcefulness-Keith's brother is an attorney plus he is well connected in the county as well as surrounding counties. Keith was very accessible, (I live outside of Collin County and he even agreed to meet with me on the weekend.), explained issues to me to where I could understand them, and more importantly made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process as this was my first time having to deal with felony charges. Let me say the outcome was extremely positive and I could not be more satisfied with Keith as an attorney as well as a true partner as I went through the legal process. I highly recommend Keith if you are facing criminal charges, the gentleman knows his "stuff", is compassionate and will get the job done!

Trustworthy, Caring, Reliable Attorney
Keith was very informative and caring from the very beginning. He went to bat for me from the start and he did everything possible to have my case dismissed. He successfully negotiated a deal for me with the state prosecutor and got my case completely dismissed. He proved to be an outstanding defense attorney and trustworthy counselor throughout this entire process. He was always responsive and always willing to chat to ease my mind during this stressful patch. If I ever need an attorney again for myself, family or friend, he will be the first person I call.

Great Lawyer
Keith Harris has done a great job with my case. He kept me informed any time it was a change in status and, any time I had a question I could call him if was busy he would return the call when got a chance (within a hr). Keith was polite and honest about the case I will diffently hire him again if needed

Best representation in Dallas
I hired both Keith Harris and Kevin Harris for a felony issue. I was represented by the Harris and Harris Law Firm. Both of them treated me the the respect and care they would for any of their family members. I met with them the first time on a Sunday night and they were very understanding, compassionate and thorough. They are very knowledgeable of the entire process (they were district attorneys prior). I was able to get a hold of either Keith or Kevin at anytime if I had any questions, concerns or issues. At the end they resolved my issue timely and to my utmost satisfaction. I highly recommend the Harris and Harris Law Firm for any legal representation.

Excellent Attorney
My case was a theft charge. I told Mr Harris the truth from the beginning and he listened to every word I said. I did not feel judged nor had any apprehension to not tell him the truth. He did everything possible and I trust him and his experience. Mr. Keith Harris never gave up on my case. Whenever we met in the hall, no one could hear our conversation. He is very discreet and professional. I am indebted to him for restoring my life. I know God worked through him to get my case "DISMISSED!" I am so grateful Mr. Harris went through this with me. I will always recommend him to everyone that needs an attorney. Be smart and hire Mr. Harris you won't regret it. To God Be The Glory

10 STARS!
Avvo should allow 10 stars for the best of the best attorneys! I have hired a handful of attorneys over time in the past, collectively they couldn't compete with the service Harris & Harris offer. I have never been able to call my attorney and had honest, timely, and direct information provided to me. If you're sick of searching, contact Kevin immediately. I have used Avvo in the past and it was very unsuccessful, lost tens of thousands, and even worse the case. These guys have a solid network and can get you the best deal overall available. I have sent several people their way and they have all been extremely satisfied as well. I stand by this firm 100%.

Extremely hardworking, available, and respectful
I never thought I would find myself in a situation that would require me to retain the services of a criminal attorney let alone the defense of a felony charge. The shock of this allegation triggered a whirlwind of emotion and this panic only increased as I went to work vetting the best attorneys I could find. My two greatest concerns were experience and availability. I needed an individual who could get the job done quickly and put my mind at ease. Further, I needed this situation resolved as I have professional designations that would have been affected by a negative outcome. Fortunately, Keith Harris called me back directly based on a brief voicemail describing my situation. He was extremely knowledgeable, polite, and informative. I was instantly able to decompartmentalize and focus on business. The following day I was advised of an opportunity to speak with the detective in an effort to drop the case. Keith wasted no time and by the end of the week his team confirmed that the detective will not be filing. I am extremely pleased with this outcome and Keith’s ability to resolve this difficult charge in such a short amount of time. He was always available when I needed to talk either via phone, email or text message. I could not be more pleased with Keith Harris, I am absolutely confident I made the right call in retaining his services.

Righteous Works
Facing hard times especially when handling legal issues from a decision you made or an loved one has made comes to a time when you need honest help from a lawyer that will work for you and not play both sides for money. I was facing that problem with three felonies and caught three more cases on top of the felonies, shame on me.I was facing ten years in prison. Keith worked with me from financial agreement to keeping me informed on the case,from beginning to end unlike other lawyers who tell you what they want you to know and not need to know. I ended up getting deffered adjudication "THANK GOD,and Keith What a blessing".My experience with Keith but not just him alone his brother as well, allowed me to have faith in him through out all my court dates and justifies Keith is an righteous lawyer who will stand for you and not the prosecuting side that aims to send you or any one else away for a long time to a place that is not needed so that you can be disciplined with years thinking about what you have done wrong. I wouldnt be here this day to make a review for him if it wasn't for him, its not enough characters in this review or enough thanks to tell how grateful i am to have found him.im 23 just think 10 years For a drug case? And I got deffered adjudication which is if I complete probation it goes off my record. I know I talked much I didn't know really were to start or finish but if you are looking to hire or retain an excellent righteous lawyer who plays no games in the court room who will give good legal advice plus encouragement to keep your head up during your time of legal help for yourself or an loved one Keith is the right lawyer for the job, sincerely with love DeJuan

Excellence and Honest at its greatest!
Looking for a lawyer may be hard, but being this was my first time ever looking for a good lawyer in the DFW metroplex area, after finding out about Keith Harris and actually meeting him in person, you instantly feel so welcomed and cared about, he is a very humble and Honest guy, worked hard on the situation and loved every aspect of his work ethics, he keeps you posted of information, and is a loving, caring guy that shows true care in your situation not only is he your lawyer but he can become a great friend. So with that being said, for anyone going thru a tough time and need a not good but EXCELLENT lawyer, I definitely recommend Keith Harris! Thank you Keith! -AC

Definition of a life saver!
I found myself in a very unfortunate situation with an estranged ex; Keith worked around the clock to prove my innocence in what would've been over a decade of prison time. If it wasn't for Mr. Harris I would have had lost more than just my freedom, he made sure to represent me to the fullest & keep me up to date with any/all information regarding the case. I call Keith regularly to thank him for his work, after consultations with 3 different attorneys I am very happy with choosing Keith Harris. I chose Mr Harris because of his humbleness, intelligence & prior work as a Prosecutor. This guy knows the judicial systems tactics & methods and will fight around the clock to help better your situation. - TK (Ft Worth, TX)

Wonderful Representation
Keith was such a blessing to us. He reassured us and kept us informed throughout the process. He is very knowledgable and very compassionate. His updates and overall communication were excellent and made the process bearable. His working knowledge of the Dallas DA officae and the local judges was very helpful and comforting. I hope we never need Keith again, but if we ever do he will be the only lawyer we call.
