"I came to Mr. Harris' services while in the midst of a not so pleasant separation. Mr. Harris walked me through each step of the divorce process, provided mediation when needed, and helped throughout the negotiations. Not once did I ever feel that I didn't know where my case was at in the process. Mr. Harris kept me informed and up-to-date on my case. He made sure that my best interest was always in consideration. As well, he would let me know if my request was not realistic or the best choice for an amicable situation and would provide alternate solutions that were reasonable and turned out to result in a much better outcome. It is without any reservation that I highly recommend his services."- Michelle
