Our story

What started 40 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 Personal Injury 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 Personal Injury Law Firm.

THE SKY’S THE LIMIT

For over 40 years, our team has prioritized the needs of every client who has entered the Richard Harris Law Firm doors. With offices across the West and businesses shut down due to the worldwide pandemic, we were prepared to exemplify the extraordinary client service the firm is known for. We will do whatever it takes to maintain our connection with our clients. One way we can do this is by setting our sights on the skies above and buckling up for flights to cater our services directly to clients, whenever and wherever needed.

With its own Hawker Beechcraft Premier, known as the world’s fastest light jet, the Richard Harris Law Firm can safely travel to serve clients, no matter the circumstances. Nicknamed “The Spirit of Nevada,” the firm jet equips our lawyers to meet with clients, attend mediations and court hearings efficiently.

In an exceedingly electronically connected world, through smart devices and technology, it is also important to maintain in-person connections with our clients. From Southern Nevada to Northern California, Colorado, Utah and Arizona, our team at the Richard Harris Law Firm will travel the extra mile to meet the needs and expectations of our clients.

The Harris Air Force connects our numerous offices spanning the West, but it is not the only feature that makes the firm special. It is our extraordinary client service and aggressive advocacy for our clients. We are proud to care for our clients in unique and special ways. We provide compassion when it matters most and fight for positive outcomes.

From the whole Richard Harris Law Firm team:
We are Always Here for You!
