Handles complex issues well
Mr. Harris is a very responsive, highly professional attorney of law. I had some complexities in my case that had both family and some criminal elements. Even more problematic was being riddled with a high conflict ex-spouse (not to mention the opposing attorney too) that made the task even more difficult. Bottom line, I lost my children and we worked together to get them back. He laid out the blue print, I follow it, and got the results I wanted! Not to sound cliche, but Mr. Harris is by far the most responsive attorney I have ever met and always generous with his time. He listens. Thank you Richard, RT.
