I took a leap and left my last job to come and begin a new journey here at Richard Harris Personal Injury Law Firm and I couldn't be happier.I would say professionally I am known for having a really good memory. Once I learn about a certain file or client's case I don't forget it. Especially when it comes to their names or just those little intimate details you get out of each and every one of them through the time you work on the file. In the last 5 years I have learned a ton of stuff just in the medical aspect of these claims as well as tiny details about the providers themselves. It may seem useless to some, but to me it is what makes me good at my job.I would say anytime I have had interaction with clients I am good at communicating with them. They, like us, just want to be heard and know that their case is being taken care of. I love to learn. Anytime I am given the opportunity to learn a new skill or piece of information I feel I am exceling. I believe, in this field, you can never know too much. Each and every day is different and there is always room in your career to grow. Since November 2012.

I have always been fascinated with law, and I love to help people -- these two together equal my job.I have great customer services skills, and try to bring my positive attitude to every situation. I am great at moving road blocks, where there was once a dispute I can bring a compromise to and resolve issues among multiple parties. Before this firm I worked for Mr. Bernstein, and I also worked for ICLV where I bring knowledge and love to others. I love to help people who were wronged by someone else. Bringing them that sense of some one cares for me and what I'm going through. It excites me to know I can make others feel valued. I have been studding law since I went to Canyon Springs High School and the Leadership and Law Preparatory Academy beginning in 2004. I worked my way up the ladder from file clerk to case manager in 2012 and here I am today.

I obtained my paralegal degree after really enjoying working in the legal field. Six years later, I was looking for firm where I could grow professionally, and the Richard Harris Personal Injury Law Firm is a reputable firm who met my professional goals.I am known for having a can-do attitude and being detail-oriented. I love to challenge my mind and limits.I am sympathetic, hardworking, and of great help.I began my career in the legal field as a receptionist for a local boutique firm. I quickly learned the ins and outs of the personal injury industry when assisting all the staff members like case managers, paralegals, and attorneys. My skillset grew when I went to another local reputable law firm. My role in the settlement department consisted of handling a large case load and allowed me to perfect my communication, multitasking, and time-management skills.Many of my clients have never experienced a personal injury and are in need of help while going through a difficult time. I really enjoy helping them any way that I can.I have 12 years of admin experience, with 6 of those years in the personal injury field.

My best skill would be my ability to teach. When I am learning something new or difficult for the first time I have methods that I use so I can understand the subject completely, then I am able to teach it or explain it to someone(s) in a way that's so simple and clear that they are able to picture it, make sense of it, and understand it fully too.Before RHLF I worked as an insurance agent at Auto Insurance America. After working with AIA for a few months I was relocated to another office that needed help growing and retaining their customers. I enjoyed selling because I had a great selling coach who helped me develop valuable skills, and I was always in high spirits with our customers which made their visits enjoyable for them. So, by using those skills and with the help of my coworker, my office grew 5% in sales and retention within 3 months, which was greater (and quicker) than any of the other offices. I received great recognition and I wish I could have helped the office grow more, but I received a great opportunity to work with RHLF that I could not pass up.I have been an insurance agent for a year and a half, but I have yet to learn about being a receptionist at Richard Harris Personal Injury Law Firm. I am excited to experience what it is like working for a law firm and to see where it takes me in the long run. This will be a great start of something new.

Melissa D. Graham
[email protected] Melissa Graham is the COO of Richard Harris Personal Injury Law Firm, which also encompasses The Defenders and Ticket Busters. At the age of 19, she began working at a law firm and quickly knew this was her line of work, her passion. Melissa attended the University of San Diego, where she graduated top of her class from its top-rated paralegal program. From there, she identified Richard Harris Personal Injury Law Firm as a great place to truly launch her career. Her first roles there were as a litigation paralegal and prelitigation case manager. With several years under her belt, she continued to expand her experience by moving to a leadership position at a small personal injury law practice. There, she expanded her role by assisting with the business side of the legal operation. This provided Melissa with a comprehensive perspective of all facets of running a successful law firm: Internal staffing and human resources, client service, case management, and financial operations. Always looking to grow and conquer the next professional challenge, the timing was right to return to Richard Harris Personal Injury Law Firm, where its founder welcomed her back. Almost immediately, she rose to become the COO, running the day-to-day operations of the firm and supervising a team of over 50. Today, the team has grown to nearly 125, and the firm is Nevada’s largest and highest rated personal injury law firm. All of Melissa’s hard work led to an unexpected “next phase” of her career. Melissa occasionally gave presentations at industry networking events, and personal injury law firms across the country became aware of Melissa’s talents. She began working part time as an operations consultant with Vista Consulting Team, a group of accomplished consultants hired by PI law firms across the country to take them to the next level. With the continued growth of Richard Harris Personal Injury Law Firm, she returned to her full-time role as COO. Colleagues describe her as having an unquenchable thirst for learning, soaking everything up like a sponge. She misses little in her interactions, swiftly sizing up people and problems. These personality traits combine with her deep law firm experience make her invaluable to the many firms she helps. Melissa, born and raised in San Diego, has been a Las Vegas resident since 2002. She is the proud mother of two, and enjoys the outdoors, hiking, cycling and running.

One of the lawyers I worked for previously now works for Richard Harris Law Firm and brought me over.Excellent client relations. Dedication to getting the best result possible for each client.My clients would say that I listen to them. A lot of personal injury clients just want an ear to vent to. I have compassion and understanding of what my clients are going through and want to make the process as easy for them as possible. I want them to worry about getting their treatment and getting better and not worry about how their case is going.

I didn't know much about Richard Harris until a close friend of mine started working here and told me all about how incredible it was to work for this firm. I wasn't happy at my last job, so I knew that I had to at least try to apply. I was lucky enough to be offered a job here less than two weeks after I sent in my application. Best decision I've made thus far.I've always been told that I pick up on things pretty quickly. It doesn't seem to take me long to learn and retain new things once they've been taught to me.I seem to have a knack for not taking things personally and being able to settle a situation when things get out of hand.I have mainly worked in retail and food service. I've spent time working at Starbucks, In N' Out, and Barnes & Noble. Before I came to Richard Harris, I spent almost 2 years with Glen Lerner's office, first as a receptionist and then as an intake specialist.I'm one of the first people that new clients meet with when they come in for help, and to most of them, this is a completely new and scary experience. I love being able to explain to the clients what to expect next and ease any anxieties they might have with this whole process.I have been working in the legal field since 2016.
