Respectful and Efficient
I was a year into my original parenting plan, which was very vague. Then my ex starting abusing drugs again and my children’s safety was in jeopardy, and I didn’t know what to do. Blake acted quickly and explained everything that I could do to keep my kids safe in the moment. Then he crafted a parenting plan that protected my children and myself. My ex now how limitations and accountability to ensure my kids aren’t exposed to dangerous situations and are emotionally protected. Blake is a great communicator and always was honest with what my options were. He also was cognizant of time and cost while always being thorough. Throughout this entire experience, though it was stressful and emotionally draining, I always felt protected and knew I’d have a favorable outcome. I am extremely grateful for the work Blake did for me and my family.

Sticky divorce
I hired Blake to help my son in his divorce & not to lose everything he'd worked for. He did that & much more. I really appreciated him & would recommend him highly. Also he always returned calls & emails promptly. A great & dedicated lawyer.

Very responsive and attentive
My divorce was not very complicated but I still wanted someone else looking out for my interests. Blake was thorough, responsive and always professional. My ex-husband was stalling and did not provide a court ordered document but Blake didn’t hesitate to act and drafted a letter, threatened legal action and resolved the issue within 48 hours. I was able to focus on healing from the divorce rather than all the litigation details. Hands down, I would recommend Blake.

Quick and easy will go back if needed
Blake took my case a month before my divorce trial. We didn't get everything we wanted but it could have been a lot worse if he hadn't been in my corner. Really appreciate the hard work he put in for this case taking it on last minute. Felt like he really cared about me and my son.

Charged with a sex crime
I hired Blake to help defend me against allegations of touching my step daughter inappropriately. He was very good at explaining what my options were and answered any questions I had. He always returned or answered my calls and informed me of what to expect in court BEFORE each court appearance. He speaks Spanish which helped me understand things better. It took about 3 1/2 years but it finally got dismissed.

We WON!!!!!
My son's case is finally over due to Blake and Connor! The jury decided right and acquitted him for violating the protection order. He can finally move on with his life! I'm so happy. I can't believe we're finally done with the alleged victim and her lies.

blake harris save my life
I had a previous lawyer who said there were no options dismissal. I was frustrated and hired Blake. Blake reassured me that we could likely get a dismissal and he began negotiating with the prosecutor. Blake came up with a creative solution to the prosecutors holdup they decided to give me a dismissal. I'm so glad this is all over. Thank you so much Vindicate Law!!

Highly recommend Blake!
I was in a long term relationship that turned toxic and shortly after I ended the relationship and moved out her two daughters and their grandma hated me so much they came up with a bunch of lies and falsely accused me. The state charged me with felony sexual assault and I was looking at over 20 years in prison. Connor and Blake from Vindicate Law were able to push the prosecutor and obtained a dismissal of the false accusations. So grateful to the team at Vindicate! I highly recommend them. Professional, hardworking, transparent, communicative, relentless and very knowledgeable.

Domestic Violence DV 4
Blake just kept pushing for the deal we wanted and the prosecutor finally caved. She kept throwing out awful deals but Blake reassured me that we need to keep pushing. Now my case is finally over. I’m so relieved!

Informative and Helpful
Mr. Harris was able to get my case reduced from a Class A felony to two misdemeanors! Glad to finally put this behind me! Mr. Harris is well informed with the updates laws and stayed true to his word in what he can and can’t do. I would recommend Mr. Harris for those that may seem to have no way out of a criminal situation find relief and a much better outcome then trying to do it alone. Thank you Mr. Harris.

On Point
Blake Harris is a sharp and dedicated attorney to his clients. He was able to get all four of my charges dropped and we battled the prosecutor for far too long but he was able to get a deal that was so much better than all of us could have hoped for. I appreciate this man and all of his hard work and would recommend him to anyone in a pinch

Excellent Communicator
I was charged with aiming a firearm. Blake was able to negotiate a deal where in a year those charges will be dropped. From the day first day I talked to Blake over the phone until even now he has made himself readily available to answer any questions I had throughout the process. There was never a moment I wondered what the next steps looked like.

great
“For months the prosecutor would only offer a felony. Blake would call and email the prosecutor to negotiate down to a misdemeanor but he never responded or wanted to help me in anyway. Finally Blake was able to get the victims advocate contact information and through her was able to find out what the victim wanted. He provided that information to the prosecutor (because the prosecutor wouldn't review his email between Blake, the victim advocate, and himself) and negotiated a misdemeanor offer. Blake was in my corner the whole time. Thanks Blake."

Great attorney
After months of the state dragging my case out, Blake was able to show the different pieces of conflicting evidence and negotiate a dismissal. My life can finally go back to normal. Thanks Blake.

Phenomenal Knowledge and Service
Blake was able to work out a reduction from a sex crime felony to a misdemeanor. I was confused throughout the court proceedings as this was the first time I had ever been in serious trouble, I was really appreciative of the constant contact Blake provided so as to clear any questions up along the way as well as the fact that he battled for me through this whole vase. He took every step possible to ensure that I got the best outcome and I am more than grateful for all the work he put in. He gives a sense of reliability and peace and will work with you from the beginning till the end, even after your case is over! No doubt my life could’ve been ruined but Blake helped me have a second chance at life and continuing my career! If you have any doubts or uncertainties, Blake will help! Blake will get it done for you!
