About Robert Newton Harris

I'm an experienced trial attorney who specializes in business litigation, commercial lawsuits, and employment and labor law issues. As professional Miami attorney of 20 years, I represent both plaintiffs and defendants at the state and federal level. After graduating from the University of Miami's Law School, I founded Harris Law Firm to serve the community by meeting the needs of individuals and businesses. I strive to give the best legal advice to those seeking counsel for workplace discrimination, civil rights violations, business transactions, breach of contract violations, business fraud, fiduciary/agency disputes, business torts, and other commercial matters. I'm proud of the successful work I have had in representing plaintiffs and defendants, especially complex insurance and reinsurance litigation involving international parties with cases involving Lloyd's of London Syndicates and brokers. Those who have worked with me will say I am passionate about being a lawyer and believe in the value of forging strong relationships with clients in order to achieve a positive outcome. As a business attorney and labor and employment lawyer, I have won major judgments in favor of my clients, specifically those involving claims of discrimination, retaliation, and harassment in the workplace. I'm highly competent in the areas of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. My personal goal at Harris Law Firm is to offer clients professional, reliable legal service time and time again.
