  • Robert N Bass

    I met Jim Harrison about 20 years ago when he was opposing counsel in a case involving a bank. I was so impressed with him that we became friends, and through the years we have worked together on various matters as colleagues. Jim's firm also handles medical malpractice, serious injury and death cases. I have referred several significant cases to Jim and each of those clients was very pleased. He and his partners are excellent litigators and they have the staff and horsepower to handle very serious and complex cases. I highly recommend this attorney.
