Senior Litigation Attorney
When Memphis divorce attorney Eiko C. Harris was in college, her goal was to become a criminal prosecutor. However, an experience serving as Guardian ad Litem while in law school led her to a different track.
During that experience, she realized she could use her passion for being an advocate by making a difference to ensure children live and thrive in a safe, stable, and positive domestic environment.
Ms. Harris’ legal background is extremely diverse, but no practice area has enabled her to make such a direct and dramatic difference in the lives of her clients as family law.
“Family issues touch every culture, race, sex, and religious denomination,” Ms. Harris said.
Ms. Harris, who is a native of Queens, NY, is a clear communicator and makes sure that each of her clients understands that they have an advocate in their corner they can count on through all the peaks and valleys of the divorce process.
“I let them know that we are a team and that creates an atmosphere of trust and accountability that is needed to reach a desirable resolution to their case,” Ms. Harris said. “I strive to be a good communicator at all times.”
A divorce or child custody case is often the most difficult experience an individual ever faces. Ms. Harris makes it her goal to do everything within her power to make sure her clients reach a fair settlement while making the process as smooth as possible.
“I want to ensure that my client’s voice is heard because their rights matter,” Ms. Harris said. “It is always my desire to make the most complex and contentious situations less stressful and more manageable by providing legal services that are matched in professionalism and excellence.”
“I would refer Eiko to anybody! I think she is very professional. She always handles everything that she says she is going to do and does it timely. She has been really helpful so far, and it has been a weight off of my shoulders having her on my side.”
“Eiko is very knowledgeable and professional. She keeps me informed with her moves regarding my case and lets me know what my outcome may be whether favorable or not favorable. My only regret is not using her back in 2014 when I originally filed for my divorce. She is excellent! Whatever rating you use, please give her the max!”
”Eiko did an excellent job! I was very satisfied with her. She always kept me informed. She did a wonderful job.”
“Eiko is very sharp. For example, Eiko caught some errors on the pleadings that neither myself nor opposing counsel caught. It’s an eye for detail that made me feel that my case was in good hands from the very beginning. I couldn’t be happier.”
“What I like most about Eiko are her personal skills — it’s the way that she talks to you. Eiko is friendly and warm; you really can’t help but trust her 100%. I feel very confident in her.”
“Everything went very smoothly. Eiko stayed on top of my case. She prepared me well and stayed on top of what was happening. I did not feel in the dark.”
“I believe that Eiko C Harris has been representing and keeping me well informed on my matters. She has been awesome about getting me to know my rights, knowing what to expect, and how to recognize things to look out for. I am very impressed with her professionalism and the handling of my matters in a timely manner. I am glad that she is representing me.”
“Ms. Harris was very thorough in her work and her thinking. I feel as though Ms. Harris was always prepared and took time to speak to me about my case. I’m very happy with Ms. Harris and your firm.”
“I was very happy with the way that Ms. Harris prepared me for my first case, [so] I knew I had to re-retain Cordell & Cordell and Ms. Harris for my current case. I have not been disappointed. Ms. Harris pays close attention to my case.”
“Ms. Harris is a very nice, very sweet lady, [and] very knowledgeable on the law as it relates to not only Tennessee but to my case. I used your firm twice. She’s my lawyer and my buddy.”
“She is very detailed and really seems to care about my case.”
