Roy W. Harris Jr.
In addition to Roy’s substantial experience successfully representing employees in disputes with their current and former employers, he also has considerable experience representing individuals in short-term disability, long-term disability and unemployment benefit appeals. As a highly experienced employment lawyer, Roy takes great pride in his proven track record of obtaining favorable outcomes for clients even when other attorneys have told them that they have no case.
Roy embraces a collaborative, client-centered approach to the practice of law. Whenever Roy takes on a new client, his primary goal is to understand the client’s unique considerations and goals for the representation. Roy is steadfastly mindful that clients often experience life events that compel a reassessment of their priorities; therefore, he consistently consults with each client to ensure that legal strategies are appropriately tailored to align with any changes in the client’s personal circumstances.
Many clients come to us feeling that they have not been heard by their former employers, civil rights agencies, or, unfortunately, other lawyers that they’ve considered hiring to represent them. Carter G. Woodson wrote that “we may have too many lawyers of the wrong kind, but we have not our share of the right kind.” Roy strives to demonstrate to his clients that he is the right kind of lawyer: one who listens, keeps them in the loop, and works hard to obtain the best possible outcome under the given circumstances.
