Great Lawyer and Staff
Steve Harris was an amazing attorney and his staff was excellent as well. I always felt as though they were giving me undivided attention and they were extremely knowledgeable. They answered all of my questions promptly and made the whole process much easier.

Honest and Direct
Mr. Harris advised me frankly and with a great understanding of bankruptcy law. Most importantly he gave me alternatives to filing for Chapter 7 which I or other lawyers I spoke to had never thought of. I appreciated his honesty, integrity and not having that "briefcase will travel," mentality.

Great guy

Saved me from Bankruptcy
I had a business legal judgment against me for over 1.3 million dollars. With Steve's help, I avoided having to file for bankruptcy and settled for less than 4 percent of the judgment. Steve was great - very knowledgeable and engaged. I would use his services again in a heartbeat and would strongly recommend his services to anyone.

The best of the best
Mr. Harris listened to our problems, analyzed our situation and educated us in the choices available to us. He stood besides us and walked us through five years of a Chapter 13. He made himself available to us whenever we needed him. His assistant was always there for us, too. Right up to the very end. The professionalism, knowledge and experience of Harris Law Practice goes beyond anything we have ever experiences with any other law firm. They are simply the best!

5 Star Attorney
Recently I needed to use Steve's services again. I am a female sole owner of a multi million dollar company and the financial stress was over whelming me. Steve Harris came to the rescue and took care of communication with creditors and restructured my debt into a workable plan. An added bonus is he takes your call after hours and on weekends. This man cares about his clients.

Steve Harris Cares
I have been using Steve Harris as my debt consultant for about a year. He gave me advice on reorganizing my business and options to declaring bankruptcy. I would recommend him to any business owner who is struggling with finances and does not want to close their doors.

Satisfied Client
Mr. Harris gave me options other than filing bankruptcy. He is knowledgable, professional and even answered my calls after hours and on weekends. He cares about his clients and in my opinion, there is no one better in his field.
