The Richard Harris Law firm handled my case with a professional, compassionate, and timely manner that at that time I needed the most. They walked me through my nightmare(auto accident) with no false promises, excellent medical attention, and a personal concern for my well being that was impressive, all done in a very short period of time. They achieved maximum financial restitution and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing an excellent personal injury lawyer.

The Multiplier Effect

This law office sent me to their chiropractic clinic in Las Vegas for my injury. It appeared to be a personal injury mill and I discovered that the doctors at this clinic had falsified medical records used by the Richard Harris law firm. These records would have been supplied to my insurance company for my injury claim. I notified the firm of the falsified records and my case was withdrawn immediately. I believe the firms use of mills is unethical.
