"David Harris has proven himself invaluable to our legal department. He has helped us on bankruptcy matters on a national basis, which has allowed us to tap into his high level of expertise in the bankruptcy field and escape the escalating rates of big firms in big cities. He is always looking for a practical resolution and consistently delivers value-oriented results. Through the bankruptcy process, he has helped us recover well over $1M in claims. He has also helped us resolve complicated commercial disputes so that we avoided costly litigation. In addition, he has handled franchise litigation, including obtaining quick and effective injunctive relief. To date, we have not lost any case in which he has been involved. He is one of the few lawyers in whom we have complete trust and for whom we would give the highest possible recommendation."
