DENVER, March 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Harris Law Firm has become the largest matrimonial and family law firm in Colorado due in large part to its team of talented attorneys. Over the years, thousands of clients from communities across the state have come to trust their legal acumen and unwavering support, and many professional organizations have distinguished them for their exceptional professionalism and reputations. That includes Super Lawyers.
The stringent nomination and selection process which has made Super Lawyers a trusted resource for legal consumers, has also made selection to its annual listings among the industry's highest honors. In fact, the Super Lawyers Rising Stars list, which is reserved for top young lawyers 40 years of age of younger, or with 10 or less years in practice, recognizes no more than 2.5% of all active lawyers in the entire state.
