General Counsel for Your Business
School of Law
I'm a trial lawyer, and represent clients in commercial litigation and disputes of all sorts. In that role, I've tried cases before judges and juries all over NC. But first and foremost, I'm a problem solver. My focus is always on getting the best result for my clients, and helping them find the solution that works for them and their business. Sometimes that means a trial. Oftentimes, though, the best result requires a more creative solution. Whenever possible, I help my clients make good business decisions, so… read more they can avoid disputes in the first place.
"The company that I own is a customer of Ask Legal and I couldn't be more pleased. Harrison helped us through challenging (for us) legal situation and made the whole experience stress free. The ability to ask any questions without having to worry about what it costs is an amazing asset to our organization. Additionally, their general counsel services are extremely effective and efficient. Harrison has been a pleasure to work with is now our trusted legal adviser. I only wish that we had been an AskLegal client before getting into a legal situation."

"Understood my problem intuitively. Came up with a strategy and kept me up to date every step of the way. He was very knowledgeable, aggressive, but still had a strong sense of not crossing the line that can become uncomfortable. I strongly recommend Harrison."
