Attorney Profile:

Robert J. Harris

Robert J. Harris: Attorney with Harris Law Firm, P.C.

Biography

I've had the opportunity to learn many areas of the law in some depth.. I've worked for a large law firm, as a Prosecutor and private practice. I've represented businesses and individuals in real estate, business, personal injury and estate planning. I've both prosecuted and defended individual’s accused of major, and minor crimes. I personally founded and operated a Construction business and this Law Firm.

I now act as managing partner and mentor to other lawyers here at the firm. My varied background dealing with all types of people in all types of situations allow me to offer a unique perspective to our other attorneys in how to most efficiently and effectively represent individuals and businesses. I take on few new clients since my main focus as senior attorney is to advise attorneys on strategies and options.
