Harris Elliott was my attorney and I couldn’t ask for a better lawyer!He was always responsive, and willing to help me with any issues that arise during the process and made sure I had a good understanding of it . He quickly answered my phone calls and text messages and took time explaining my situation. Personally, I felt like I knew him for a long time he had a very approachable personality yet he was very professional. He worked tirelessly to get me a good compensation for my injury.I’m very happy and satisfied with the way he handled my case. If I needed to, I would recommend him to my family and friends anytime!

I had a career ending injury working as a Nurse. My attorney was Harris Elliot and my experience was Phenomenal. There were a lot of bumps across the 2+ years of surgeries and insurance company payments getting to me on a bi-weekly basis. Harris was Excellent on getting all of my issues along the way, along with a general concern for my personal health along the way. I could not have asked for a better experience with anybody else during one of the most devastating points in my life. I would consider Harris as not only my attorney but a Great friend through it all. I now have reached out to Amy for a unrelated matter, she has also been Amazing to say the least!!! I am looking forward to now have her have my back this time around. I would and have recommended this law firm to friends in need, and will continue to in all future needs. I can't thank you enough!!!Phillip Spallina
I truly had a great experience working with Harris Elliot.He was always available whenever I had any questions or concerns, he was very passionate and patient! He always guided me in the right direction.His secretary Daisy was also very helpful and prompt with any of the situations.I would highly recommend using Harris and the firm.
Without no doubt this firm is so awesome. I had another lawyer where he never picked up the phone, I wasn’t getting paid on time weeks sometimes months late I couldn’t do it anymore, so I found GWC and from the start they were so helpful, especially Harris is such a great person he got me setup with direct deposit an they haven’t been late on my payment or benefits not once they get the job done!! I highly recommend them if you want smooth, no headaches for your case they will! Take care of you
