Our Story

What started more than 30 years ago as a one-man operation, has developed into a full-service Las Vegas personal injury law firm that serves thousands of injured victims. The years of hard work and dedication to understanding our clients’ needs have enabled Richard Harris Law Firm to develop the reputation for success it has today.

But without our team’s passion for helping injured people get the fair and full amount of compensation they are owed, we wouldn’t be here today. We’re aggressive when we need to be, compassionate when it counts, and always dedicated to your success. That’s what makes us Richard Harris Law Firm.
