Once you have retained our firm to represent you in your Auto Accident case, the need for ongoing communications between you, your lawyer, and our staff becomes critical.  It is important that our lawyers and staff obtain all needed documentation that wasn’t submitted during the Initial Consultation.  Much of the additional information will be obtained from the information given in the Initial Consultation.

In the first few days after your case opens, many activities take place establishing our firm as your representative for future communication related to the case.   Your Case Manager will send notifications to relevant insurance companies establishing that our firm is now representing you in this claim and all future communications with them in regard to this claim, should be forwarded to our firm.  They may refer you to medical providers if needed and follow up with medical providers on your current medical condition and treatments to date.

Communications is critical to your case

It’s important that you forward needed documents as noted during the first meeting as soon as possible, so that your Case Manager can update our files for use in the case.  Your case manager may call you during these initial days after retention to follow up on medical treatments and any other business related to the case.

Certainly, phone calls and possibly emails between you and your case manager or lawyer are considered normal during this time.  Our firm notes all contacts with you and any documents exchanged, on an automated case management computer program.  Documents are scanned into electronic format and are available for retrieval for lawyers and staff of the firm.

Our firm has developed an additional channel of communications with our clients, which allows you to follow up on activity as it occurs.  If you have internet access, you can check your case file at any time 24/7 to see the most recent updates to your case.  On the firm internet site  at the top left corner above our logo, is a link called “Client Login.”  In your Initial Consultation, you should have been given your login credentials to access your case.  Once you click on the Client Login link, you will be presented with the login to the Client Site.  Enter your credentials and you will arrive at the dashboard.

Client Site functions

From the dashboard, you will some instructions, and below the instructions you will see a list of cases.  If this is your first case with our firm, you will only see your new case listed with a blue button called “Manage This Case” at the right.  If you have had previous personal injury cases with Richard Harris Law Firm or made use of our other divisions, Ticket Busters, or The Defenders, you may see links for those past cases as well.  Select the relevant case, and click the blue Manage button.

Once you have accessed your auto accident case, you will see Client Info, which has your legal name addresses and contact information.  You can contact your Case Manager at any time by clicking the green “Contact Us” button.  You should confirm that all information is correct and contact us with corrections if needed.

At the top of the page you will see a row of tabs labelled Client Info, Case Details, Dates, Providers, Documents, and Notes.  Clicking on these links will show a different aspect of your case.  Again, during the initial stages of your case, check the information as displayed and make corrections by clicking the Contact Us button.

The NOTES tab, in particular will show actions taken by your Case Manager or Lawyer concerning your case.  These notes will display the day after they take place: A nightly process gathers all updates to your case file and posts them for display the next day.

If you have questions about how to access this client site, or have not received your credentials, or have lost them, contact your Case Manager for direction.

The Richard Harris Law Firm provides information to our clients

We believe in using all technologies available to make your experience with our firm as transparent as possible and to keep you informed as your case progresses.  In addition to these technologies, we believe the most important part of your experience is the person to person relationships you have with our lawyers and staff.  If you’ve been injured through no fault or your own in a Car Accident, call us today at (702) 444-4444.

2015 marks the sixth-annual Students with a Cause PSA video contest sponsored by The Richard Harris Law Firm. As part of our law firm’s “Reach Out” program, Students with a Cause is a community-focused video challenge to high-school students throughout Clark County, intended to raise awareness in different areas of safety.

Through the years we have witnessed amazing creativity in the 30-second video submissions sent in by local high-school students. The links below will take you to some of the previous submissions, including the annual winning videos.

2010 Drinking and Driving
2011 Distracted Driving
2012 Pedestrian Safety
2013 Stop Bullying
2014 Helmet Safety

The theme of this year’s contest, “What If…” challenges students to answer the hypothetical question as it relates to improving their lives, that of their family or community, or making for a better society. Students can apply by submitting their unique take on the theme in a 30-second video submission. The winning video will be aired on local TV in June and posted on the Internet.

The goal of the Students with a Cause campaign is to encourage students to creatively express their vision and experiences through a video that will engage, motivate and make a difference in their lives and the community. “My focus is to give students a sense of accomplishment and encourage them to create artistically with a long-term goal in mind,” says Richard Harris, Founder of the Richard Harris Law Firm. “This campaign not only serves as an avenue to be creative, but as an opportunity for students to make a real commitment to their future.”

Entries are judged by a panel of professionals in media and broadcasting who will rank the videos based on content, persuasiveness, creativity, production/presentation and awareness. The Richard Harris Law Firm will reward the top two PSA videos in the contest with a first and second place prize. FIRST PRIZE:  $1,500 scholarship and $500 donation to the student’s high school / SECOND PRIZE: $1,000 scholarship.

Integrity. Hard work. Compassion.

These are the principles Richard Harris has honored his entire life and continues to live by in his practice at the Richard Harris Law Firm. Growing up in Idaho as the third of five children, Rick (as he is better known) comes from a loving family, where both parents taught their children to aim high in life, and treat other people with respect and dignity.

Both sides of Rick’s family trace their roots to pioneers in the 1840’s and 1850’s, who walked across the American plains and settled in the Rocky Mountain west in search of religious and personal freedom, so hard work and perseverance have always been a part of his family’s spirit. Like his pioneer ancestors, Rick’s father moved the family to Nevada in 1968, on Rick’s 15th birthday, in search of better opportunities.

Rick’s father, a former World War II Naval Corpsman and schoolteacher, always encouraged him to be a lawyer, and follow in the footsteps of his great-great grandfather, a frontier judge. Rick lacked the self-confidence to pursue a legal career until he successfully completed a challenging church mission in England. Upon his return, Rick heeded his father’s advice and obtained a law degree. As his father always said, “Never be afraid of taking the hard road. It’s less crowded, but it leads to a bigger reward.

Once Rick took the hard road of law school, he excelled because he was never afraid to work harder than most students. He interned for the Chief Justice of the Nevada Supreme Court, graduated near the top of his class, and took the California and Nevada bar exams in the same week, passing them both.

Rick’s first job out of law school was with criminal defense lawyer, and former Las Vegas Mayor, Oscar Goodman. He taught Rick to be passionate about the law and always love your clients. Rick opened the Richard Harris Law Firm 18 months after graduating from law school, and established the firm on the constant ideal that the client comes first. As his mother, a piano teacher, secretary and kindest and most compassionate person Rick has ever known, taught the family, “We respect everyone. Only then do we deserve respect.” Rick has created a law firm for the people. He shares the highest of highs and the lowest of lows with his injured clients, and makes sure he serves them and their interests to the best of his ability. Rick’s commitment to each client enables him to right the wrong and bring peace to their lives.

Rick’s parents instilled in him a love of hard work and compassion, and these traits show in his work every day. Rick Harris is well prepared to represent the people that need him most, the injured and those who have lost loved ones.

To learn more about Rick’s story and find out what drives his passion for the law, please view the video below. In the most competitive personal injury lawyer market in the country, what makes the Richard Harris Law Firm different? We care.

Trust is the basis and foundation of every key relationship you will ever experience in your life.

Decisions are made, partnerships solidified, and long term commitments are forged all based on one element: trust.

Whether or not you can trust a person is a signal that comes through your soul loud and clear. The only question is whether or not you will chose to listen to the guiding of your instincts or stray away and make your decision based on external elements.
