I had a car accident two years ago from which I suffered an injury. I was hit by a driver who was a DWI. The insurance covering the driver did not respond to settling the body injury case in the way I expected them to. I was running out of time. Not knowing what to do and being an international student in the US with no desire to get involved in any legal matter, I was very hesitated to approach a lawyer for my case. I decided that there is nothing to lose by talking to a lawyer. I used avvo and found Rusty. I called and scheduled a meeting. I was surprised with the amount of knowledge I gained in one meeting. He was very detailed in explaining the way to proceed. He explained to me the possible scenarios and expectations. He went into bits and pieces of every scenario and was very open to my questions. I was very pleased.
My main limitation through the whole process was that I did not have time to follow with paperwork and requirements for the case. I did not have to. He handled the case with minimum work from my side while keeping me updated on the progress of the case. Rusty was always very responsive and open to my inquiries. I am not aware of the law so I was always raising inquiries about things here and there. He never made me feel bad about asking anything and always replied quickly to my emails in a friendly and detailed manner. He did not hesitate to clear my concerns with simple language. We settled and I got more than I expected from the settlement. In our final closure meeting, he spent more than an hour addressing my final inquiries with an honest friendly smile. He is definitely one of the most supportive people I met in my life. Even after the case was settled, he continued to respond to my emails in the manner he did through the case.
I strongly recommend Rusty to anyone in need of a lawyer. I appreciate his extraordinary support. Rusty is very smart, knowledgeable and confident. He really knows how to get people their fair right and fights for it. On top of that, he has a great personality. I was lucky to have him represent me and I am glad with the outcome of the case.

Rusty Harrison represented me after I was injured in a motorcycle accident. I had never been seriously injured or involved in a lawsuit before. After interviewing several lawyers, we decided to go with Mr. Harrison. He is very honest and straight forward. He took the time to explain the process, accurately described the timetable for getting the case to court, and helped me understand the true value of my claim so that I had realistic expectations. My case settled and I am extremely pleased with the results. If I ever need a lawyer at any time in the future, Mr. Harrison will be the first person I contact. I highly recommend Rusty Harrison to anyone seeking a lawyer. He will work very hard for you to help you achieve the ruling that you deserve.

Mr. Harrison represented me in a "slip and fall" case. I had never been involved in any legal action (other than a divorce and will) and was in pain, stressed and completely ignorant of where to turn next. Mr. Harrison met with me, and I immediately knew that I had found the right person to represent me. He is calm, efficient and responsive but more importantly is kind and makes you feel comfortable with his level of knowledge and expertise. He is completely up front in representing what he can and cannot do. He explained the entire process, making sure my expectations were realistic. He literally did all the work and kept me up to date and informed. The case went to mediation this month, and the settlement was more than I had hoped for. If you need legal representation, I can and do whole-heartedly recommend Mr. Harrison as an ethical and expert attorney!

I've had the pleasure of working with Mr. Harrison on several personal injury litigation cases. His skills as a trial lawyer are nothing short of amazing! In addition to having mastered the fundamental skills of evidence and procedure, he is also excellent at the psychology involved in lawsuits and injury cases. He is aggressive, highly skilled, extremely dedicated, and a masterful trial lawyer. I always look forward to the opportunity to work with Mr. Harrison!

Rusty and I have worked on several matters together. Rusty is always prepared and always knows the law better than the other side. In the cases that Rusty and I have worked on together, we have come across our fair share of legal issues, and Rusty is always the best person to determine the correct legal path forward. In the courtroom, Rusty is hard to beat. I never hesitate to recommend Rusty to others that need help.
