Excellent and Professional attorney
My attorney Jeffrey Harris has really been an amazing attorney on my behalf. He is very professional, efficient and communicated with me to answer my questions, concern and any issues in a timely manner. This was my first time dealing with an attorney and Jeffery was able to guide me and provide me with his expert legal advice as needed throughout my divorce case. He made this experience less stressful and he was always looking out for my best interest as well as my child's best interest. Jeffery was able to settle my divorce with my ex-spouse in regards to divorce and child custody with very reasonable outcomes. I HIGHLY recommend Jeffery he will help you get the results you are truly seeking and make you feel more than welcome and comfortable throughout the process.

The right guy to get the job done!
Jeff was an outstanding attorney! He couldn't have handled my case any better. From the first initial phone call, I felt comfortable and confident that he knew what he was doing, that he cared about what I was going through, and that he was going to do his best to help me get the results I needed and wanted. His professional manner, attention to detail, and timely responsiveness make him a phenomenal and trustworthy choice to be standing beside you at a time when you need it the most!

Jeff is my hero!
Jeff has been representing me for the past few years on all my child custody issues. He always wins. I’m forever grateful for him getting me primary custody and settling any issues whenever they arise. Hire him.

Great Attorney
Jeffrey Harris was the only attorney that not only answered my call at 8pm on Friday, but also gave me advise on how to proceed until I could meet with him. Jeffrey guided through a difficult child custody case, acting on behalf of my son and I to get full custody of my son and be able to keep him safe. I highly recommend Jeffrey Harris, he will help you get the best results possible. Kent

Great attorney
Mr. Harris really helped me through my process. I was stalling with my case by trying to do it myself but the emotions always got in the way. With his help, I was able to get everything resolved within 6 months. He stood by my side and gave me great advise on what would work and he did his best to resolve the case to my best interest. The moment I met up with him about the case, I knew I would be able to move on with my life. Mr. Harris is unlike any other lawyers who try to suck up your money with any questions you have, he even helped me with some legal questions on some unrelated matters. If I could afford to have him on my retainer, I would totally do it. Thanks for everything!

Passionate about what he does and got a great result.
Jeff is a person who is passionate about law. His knowledge is well above par and he cares about his clients and getting results. In my case he stood by me and no only helped me in court but also helped me deal with my emotions to help alleviate any fear or worries. He trusted me and I trusted him as we were very open with each other regarding the details of my case. I hope to not need to hire an attorney again in the future but if I had to Jeff would be my first point of call. Thank you Jeff for all that you have done for me. I am grateful for all of your hard work.

Thank you very much !!
All I can say is THANK YOU !!! Having to go through a divorce is surly difficult enough but having the right attorney makes it so much easier. Having found myself in this situation I did my due diligence in researching an attorney. After coming across Jeffrey Harris and reading the reviews about him I decided to give him a call. After a brief conversation I set up an appointment to meet him in person. As soon as I met Jeffrey I felt comfortable and I knew I had found the right attorney for me. The reason why is because Jeffrey is far from being the typical attorney - divorce/family lawyer. He doesn’t waste any time, he is clear precise and straight forward and most importantly he won’t break your bank. What good is a lawyer who wins a divorce for you but leaves you bankrupt. His pricing is more than fair and gave me the chance to have an outstanding lawyer at my side during this 2.5 year divorce ordeal. He was always there for me, kept me in check when my emotions started to get the best of me. He was calm, and collected, smart and when the time was right he turned into a pitbull. He knew all the time what he was doing and was waiting for his chance and the plan to unfold. And he delivered. I got exactly what I wanted and in the end not only super happy that I got divorced (best decision of my life) but very happy that overall this process went by smoothly and that I chose Jeffrey as my lawyer (second best decision of my life). I am utterly thankful for having Jeffrey and his team by my side and if you need a divorce/family law lawyer he is the right man for you and for the job.

Jeffrey is the right lawyer for the job !
I called Jeffrey as well as many other family law attorneys to help me with what I thought was a complicated spousal support case. After my initial consultation with Jeffrey, I knew I was in good hands . After going through my case, Jeffrey developed a sound strategy, that resulted in a settlement that Initially I did not think possible without a lengthy court battle. Jeffrey is a highly skilled, tenacious and a tough negotiator with plenty of court room experience. Jeffrey excelled in the many skills you need your lawyer to have in communication, perseverance, judgement , creativity, and analytics. Jeffrey did a fantastic job for me and I highly recommend him.

The Perfect Choice
I contacted Jeffrey Harris for a family law case. He was to the point and precise on what needed to be done on my part and what his role would be. Right away I knew he was the attorney for me. He let me know the truth of the outcome of a move-away case. He never stopped fighting for me and we won due to the power of God and my attorneys persistence. I am proud to announce that my family happily relocated and I strongly suggest for you to use Jeffrey Harris to defend you in court because he truly has your best interest at heart. It is also important to note that every attorney I contacted prior to Mr. Harris told me my move away would be impossible. Not only did he get the job done, he accomplished it in a timely manner and at an affordable rate.

Painless process with Jeffrey!
Jeffrey helped me with my restraining order case, and couldn't have made it easier! Setting up the restraining order was effortless when I met with Jeffrey in his office. He then was persistent in serving my client (made multiple attempts across town) When we went to court to get a permanent restraining order, Jeffrey made me feel comfortable as he defended my case along with me to our commissioner. He even persuaded the commissioner to extend the restraining order from 3 to 5 years. I truly didn't expect this process to be so easy. Wouldn't have done it with anyone else1

Karma came to life!
Hands down Jeffrey Harris is the best! No bull----/no sugar coating honest and straight forward from get-go. What ever questions we had he answered it in a timely manner. This is the second time he has represented my husband. That should say allot about him and his professionalism/knowledge, and understanding. I observed him in court yesterday. I will say this, he was on point and on his game! I highly recommend his service. He will go to battle for his clients until the very end.

Out of this world
I contacted Jeffrey out of share desperation from my previous lawyer who was not fulfilling my representation. Jeffrey was considerate, supportive, and assertive. I felt like that someone was there for me, and that at the end of the day, I was in good hands. Well I was wrong, I was not in good hands, but great hands. He made the divorce so much easier on me that I could concentrate on myself knowing that Jeffrey was looking after the divorce. If there is one thing that I could say, hire Jeffrey, you will not regret it.

My husband and I hired Jeffrey for our legal need in California (as we live in another state). He was very knowledgeable and was always prompt in response to emails and phone calls. He handled our case very efficiently. We would and will hire him again if needed.

The Best couldn't ask for anything more
In an unfortunate situation I would never wish upon anyone I was going through a divorce at a very young age. Along with going through my divorce I have a toddler who was my main priority and wanted to keep him away from any negativity and protected to the best of a mothers ability. Mr. Harris shined light onto the circumstances allowing me to be a mother and taking care of everything in such an amazing manner and quick ! I had no worries and was always able to call at anytime considering I was working full time 12hr shifts. I felt the entire time my son and I where his main priority and we were given great direction. Great professionalism and so thankful couldn't of asked for anything more he is truly the best!! Now my son and I can grow in our own little family
