Attorney Profile

E. William Harris, IV, founded The Law Office of William Harris, P.C., after gaining litigation and negotiation experience at an insurance company and prominent legal firm. In Dallas, Texas, he defends individuals and businesses in the areas of family law, estate and probate law, and business law.

Mr. Harris possesses a Master of Science in finance from Bentley College and a Juris Doctor with honors from St. Mary’s University School of Law. He is admitted to practice before all Texas courts and the U.S. District Courts for all districts in Texas and North Dakota. His desire to serve his clients with excellence developed during his career as a captain in the U.S. Air Force. During his time in the armed services, he earned a Commendation Medal and graduated from the U.S. Air Force with a Bachelor of Science in management. The values instilled in him as an officer continue to support his clients during emotionally and financially difficult challenges.

Mr. Harris's successes have included winning spousal support for a client from a cheating spouse and dealing with interstate and international jurisdictions to obtain child custody for another client. During a title dispute, Mr. Harris gained a summary judgment that allowed a person to regain title to a home taken by a swindler. His strategies at trial convinced a jury to side with his client who was sued by a former employee demanding damages of $1 million.

A believer in giving back to the community, Mr. Harris lends his services to Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas and the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program. He stays connected to legal developments through membership in the State Bar of Texas, the American Bar Association, and the Dallas Bar Association.
