Personal Injury Attorney & Managing Partner

I founded and manage one of Nevada's largest and most respected personal injury law practices. The Richard Harris Law Firm has been helping injured and disabled people for over thirty years. In 1980 we began with a single client, and one thing has remained constant over the years - our clients come first.Our professional success could be measured by our significant verdicts and settlements on many of Nevada's largest personal injury cases. But we are most proud to know each of our clients personally and that their case, large or small, is individually handled by our team of professionals. The Richard Harris Law Firm enjoys a reputation for the quality of its representation and trial skills which have resulted in substantial recoveries for our clients. Additionally, we take great satisfaction that these cases have also prompted a safer society. The Richard Harris Law Firm receives many referrals from past clients, other lawyers and judges. The firm considers a client referral the highest expression of confidence.The Richard Harris Law Firm is committed to aggressively handling our cases, supporting safety programs to educate the public and protecting each other from harm.
