About Marjory Harris

The goal of our practice is to help injured workers get well and return to work and receive fair treatment of their claims. If your goals are reasonable, we are happy to help you. At the same time, we have a duty as officers of the court not to make bogus or frivolous claims.

We do not encourage disability to get better fees. We put the client's needs first. If retained, we are always willing to discuss your case, the law and legal strategy. We strive to return all calls and respond to emails in a prompt and professional manner. Your case status and documents are available to you -- just ask.
