  • 5.0/5.0 Review for Frederick "Rick" Harris by a Partner on 07/07/14 in Civil Litigation

    Rick Harris is an excellent attorney who would be on a very short list of litigators I would retain if I needed a personal or professional defense attorney. I have no hesitation in recommending that Rick receive Martindale Hubbel's highest rating.
