Great attorney for a challenging case!
Chris Harris and his team has represented me through a high conflict child custody case that has felt hopeless at many turns. His calm demeanor and quick ability to cut through my emotion to identify key issues helped present the best case we could to the court in an effort to provide my children with a positive outcome. Even a year after the final hearing, he's stayed engaged in hand holding the enforcement of our order. Thanks Chris!

Not Prepared for Trial
My lawyer failed to tell me what his plan was in defending my position. He went a week after disposition without responding to or acknowledging my emails, which then made him late to contact opposing council to work out any arrangements that would benefit me and my case. He was very “mouse like” and quiet in court even when he was being spoken to. He did not show any authority that he knew what he was talking about but rather just nodded yes to the other councils wishes. He was as not prepared for my case on the day of but had another hearing that lasted through the day and pushed mine to another day causing a lot of tention. He over billed me for the day he was with another client even though he never had my case read that day. I will be filing a complaint with the state bar.

"I had the opportunity to work with Chris as opposing counsel on a case this past year, and found that he always tried to do the right thing by his client and all parties involved. He was professional, reasonable, and easy to work with throughout. I endorse Chris and would gladly work with him or against him on a case in the future."
