Harris Lowry Manton LLP is proud to announce that founding partner Jeff Harris has been honored in Georgia Trend’s 2021 “Legal Elite” issue for his exceptional personal injury work.
For the last 19 years, Georgia Trend has recognized attorneys throughout the state who are considered the best in their field of practice. This statewide business publication publishes an annual Legal Elite issue every December, honoring the state’s top attorneys in a wide range of practice areas.
To be eligible for consideration, attorneys must be members of the state Bar of Georgia and must live and practice in the state. Nominations are submitted by other attorneys, which means the “Legal Elite” list is based solely on peer review and recognition.
“I’m incredibly honored to fight for our clients every day,” said Harris. “The fact that this Georgia Trend recognition is based on peer reviews by attorneys across the state is especially meaningful.”
About honoree Jeff Harris
