Ryan D. Harris is the managing attorney and principal of Harris Personal Injury Lawyers. He has extensive experience in personal injury law and litigation.
Harris is a graduate of Brigham Young University, where he majored in Spanish and minored in history. He attended law school at California Western School of Law on an academic scholarship, and while there, served as an editor for the Cal Western Law Review. He finished law school with distinction, graduating magna cum laude. Harris is fluent in Spanish and has been certified bilingual by the University of Salamanca in Madrid.
Harris’ early legal experience included clerking for a superior court judge and working for insurance defense firms. However, his true passion lies in representing injured individuals and their families against major insurance companies. Harris finds satisfaction in helping these less fortunate individuals, and he has successfully settled and/or tried to verdict numerous cases both large and small on behalf of his clients.
After practicing personal injury law for several years, he founded Harris Personal Injury Lawyers. Harris formed the law firm on the principle that injured persons and their families should have access to the same quality legal representation as large insurance companies. Harris Personal Injury Lawyers is a premier personal injury law firm. The law firm only handles personal injury cases and only represents injured persons and their families. The law firm does not represent insurance companies.
During his career, Harris has handled numerous six-, seven- and eight-figure cases to successful resolution or verdict. His recent litigation success includes a settlement in the case of Ealy v. Caltrans for $1.6 million, and receiving a $13.28 million jury verdict in the case of Rogers v. Storms et al.
Harris maintains the highest possible rating of 10/10 on avvo.com. He was recognized by the Daily Journal for having obtained a Top Plaintiff’s Verdict of 2009. He was also awarded a 2010 Trial Star Award by the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego. Harris has been selected as a San Diego County “Top Attorney” for 2011 by The Daily Transcript, in the Personal Injury/Property Damage practice category.
Harris is licensed to practice in all California state courts, and he is a member of the American Bar Association, American Association for Justice, State Bar of California, Consumer Attorneys of California, San Diego Bar Association, Consumer Attorneys of San Diego, North County Bar Association, Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and The Verdict Club.
Outside of work, Harris enjoys spending time with his family. He has a strong appreciation for art and loves to travel. He also enjoys many recreational activities, including surfing, football and basketball.
