"I started my divorce with one of the most expensive lawyers around. I was extremely disappointed and turned to Joel for help. He jumped right in and was able to take the stress and burden off of my shoulders. Our final trial was yesterday and I am very happy with the way Joel represented me. I will definitely return to him for all of my future legal needs. I know why he is repeatedly voted #1 for client satisfaction. He provides excellent service. Thank you, Joel!"
" We hired Joel as our attorney for our custody case. He was recommended to us from a friend that is a top attorney elsewhere. We were so glad we did. Joel is not only an attorney, but a judge so he knows the law backwards and forwards. The attorney on the other side of our case was supposedly one of the "top" attorneys in our area. Joel, having had so much experience with this attorney knew exactly what we were dealing with, and what strategy to employ. He provided us with such great advice that he put our minds at ease throughout the whole process leading up to trial. Joel is kind, attentive and we felt like we were his only client, even though we knew how busy he was in and out of court. At the end of it all, we got the exact outcome we had hoped for, and now consider Joel a friend. How often can you say that about your attorney? Joel is affordable and highly knowledgeable. We didn't have to go into debt to hire him or pay his bill. He is a good man, shoots straight, and always gave us the same legal advice he would give his own family. He never padded the bill for extra hours or silly motions that he knew would go nowhere, he is a stand up guy that we completely trust and will always be our attorney from here on out. I don't think we could have been more pleased with our experience, he made a bad situation bearable. "
"Joel and his team were a huge help to me after an auto accident. It was a tremendous relief to turn everything over to them and let them deal with the other insurance company. I can't speak to other areas of their practice but if you ever need assistance following an accident, I would absolutely recommend Harris Law."
"Awesome lawyer!! Works hard on your case will always be honest with you. Can't find a better one in the state."
"Harris Law exceeded all expectations in every facet of my case."
