BEST Criminal Attorney in Texas
There is not enough space here to adequately provide an appropriate review. Where do I start? Kevin Harris is an outstanding criminal attorney. He and his brother have been voted D Magazine's BEST of attorneys in Dallas and that is an understatement. My child was accused of a false and erroneous felony. Kevin provided honest, focused, dedicated, and a thorough defense. He accompanied my child to the police station to speak to detectives, reviewed hours and hours of evidence, planned and executed a flawless defense. Beyond that, Kevin's faith is evident in all he does. He truly understands the importance of prayer and operates at the highest level of ethics, honesty and integrity- even when he has to deliver difficult information or recommendations etc. He always acted in the best interest of my child and in the end, the right verdict was received- NOT GUILTY! We will FOREVER be grateful. If you are EVER in need of criminal representation- you need to hire Harris & Harris. The investment is worth EVERY penny. I hope we never need legal representation again, but heaven-forbid we do... the ONLY call I am making is to Harris & Harris. I recommend Harris & Harris Law Firm without ANY reservations. We are forever in debt.

Best lawyer in Dallas
Kevin Harris and Keith Harris came highly recommended to me for a serious felony issue. From day one they both treated me with the care and respect you would imagine they would for a family member. Both gentlemen met with me on short notice on a Sunday night and proceeded to represent me from then on. During the following months, I always had their undivided attention and immediate access to them during anytime of need. Having representation from the Harris and Harris law firm is truly like hiring one lawyer but having double the expertise and attention. They cared about me as a person and not just a case number. I fully trusted and had confidence in them through out the ordeal and they did not let me down. The case was no billed. I would never want to ever need a lawyer again for me or any loved ones, but if there was ever a need for lawyers I would always turn to or recommend the Harris and Harris law firm.

Very Grateful to Kevin Harris!
I was charged with a dwi in Feb 2014. I hired a different well known attorney who had represented me on a previous dwi 10 years before. After a year and several court postponements I was getting frustrated with his results. I had been on interlock for over a year and already knew I was facing punishment but it didn't seem to be moving forward. During this time a friend called and told me how pleased he was with Kevin's results defending his dwi. So after going to court and my case being postponed again I called Kevin and asked for a consultation. He was very friendly and easy to talk to. He was completely honest with me that his outcome may be no different than my other attorney but he promised to get it moving forward and work hard on my behalf. I hired him immediately. Kevin's approach was to be proactive. He soon had an offer for me from the court. With that he developed a game plan that would prove to be looked upon favorably by the judge. For example, Kevin had me start on my probation conditions before going to court. Having a lot of this completed helped reduce the status of my probation and I was able to quit using interlock a lot sooner than expected. I was skeptical about changing my attorney but am very pleased with the outcome. I only wish I would have known of Kevin and hired him from the start. His fee was more than fair. I appreciated his commitment to getting me the best results possible.

Kevin from the beginning of all this, was willing to work with me to help my son get out of the mess he got into. He is not only compassionate, but he strived to get the best he could for my son. He constantly checked in with my son, and would take any calls regarding questions my son or myself had. I have never had anyone show so much concern to make sure my son completed the program he was able to assist my son with as he showed. He even showed up and drove to my sons last hearing which showed the kind of attorney he is, and didn't even ask for additional money to do this. He is expensive but well worth the cost for the best representation. I would highly recommend anyone to Kevin or his brother. The saying you get what you pay for, holds true for Mr. Harris. If you are looking for cheap, and someone who will not care about you as an individual but only that you paid for his fee's, this attorney is not the one for you. If you are looking for the best, honest, most compassionate attorney who will fight to get the best he can for you, this is who you would want to choose. He brought me to tears, the first, and last meeting we had. He told my son when we left the courthouse in front of my son's probation officer, he drove from Richardson to Ft Worth to be at my sons last hearing, as he wouldn't have missed being there for the world. Kevin you truly are the best to have worked with and well worth every dollar I paid! Thank you so much

Kevin Harris was an answer to prayer. Kevin is highly professional and effective while at the same time being personable and compassionate. Mr. Harris is extremely knowledgeable in his craft and kept me well-informed during the entire process. Kevin is a man of high ethics, integrity, and a man of faith which in my case was very helpful. I highly recommend Kevin Harris if you are in need of a defense attorney.

Professional and Compassionate Representation
I was way over my head in legal trouble (two felonies and a misdemeanor). Attorney Harris fought tooth and nail for me throughout the long arduous process, ultimately getting all charges dismissed. He was always assessable, only a phone call away, which I found very reassuring during this very trying time in my life. He is well-respected in the legal community and he conducts himself as a professional at all times. He is conscientious, kind, and compassionate. I highly recommend the services of the Harris and Harris Law Group.
