COLUMBUS, Ind., Aug. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Patrick (Woody) Harrison is recognized by Continental Who's Who as a Pinnacle Lifetime Member in the Legal field.
Harrison serves as an Attorney in his own practice, which specializes in Personal Injury Law, and utilizes his expertise in Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice. He has practiced law since 1973 and utilizes his over four decades of career experience in his role.
"My life and career gives insight into not only the man I am, but the type of law I practice and why," Harrison said. "Early life experiences clearly influenced my choice of the profession I have pursued with great passion in Columbus, Indiana, for more than 40 years.
My father was a physician, and I learned a lot about medicine while witnessing his dedication to saving lives and preventing them from being ruined. Serving in Vietnam, I saw people suffering with no one to help and knew that I wanted to make a difference as an attorney."
Harrison served his country in the United States Army in Vietnam from 1968-1970. While
he was deployed in Vietnam, he took the LSAT exam for entrance into law school. After returning from Vietnam, he moved to Columbus, Indiana, where he has practiced law since 1973.
Harrison's first position in the legal field was with the firm of Goltra Cline King and Beck, where he practiced a wide range of law types – including divorce, bankruptcies, personal injury and more. However, Harrison focused on personal injury and medical malpractice early in his career – resulting in a special depth and breadth of experience in those particular areas.
In 1984, Harrison and his former partner Mr. Beck formed Beck Harrison, P.C. In 2010, Harrison established his solo practice, which focused on personal injury and medical malpractice cases.
"If you are suffering after a serious accident that you did not cause, or you need to seek justice and compensation after the wrongful death of a family member, you need prompt, clear legal guidance," Harrison said. "I believe it is also fair to expect the personal injury lawyer you choose to care about you and your family on a personal level."
Harrison earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Business from Indiana University in 1968. He then went on to complete his Juris Doctor, also from Indiana University. To further his professional development, he is a member of the American Bar Association, the Indiana Bar Association, the Bartholomew County Bar Association, the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association's College of Fellows, as well as their Emeritus Board of Directors, and the American Association for Justice.
In recognition of his outstanding accomplishments in the field, Harrison was named Co-Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association, has been listed in Who's Who in American Law and is rated AV-Preeminent® by Martindale-Hubbell.
