Accomplished Texas Criminal Defense and Appeals Attorney Helps Get Clients the Justice They Deserve

Providing effective representation for clients since 1984
When you are charged with a crime, choosing the right attorney can make all the difference in your case. I am William S. Harris of Fort Worth, Texas. I represent clients throughout the Dallas Fort Worth area and Texas in the areas of criminal law and appeals. I was an assistant district attorney in Fort Worth for five years before beginning a criminal defense practice in 1981.  I have been a criminal defense attorney since then, and since 1988 I have been Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

    creative solutions for clients that other attorneys might not be able to
  • Personalized attention — When you come to my office, I take the time to get to know you and fully understand your situation. I enjoy listening to what my clients have to say because it gives me a better sense of how to represent them at trial.
