Large Firm Expertise. Small Firm Efficiency.

The attorneys at Harris Berne Christensen LLP (HBC) have a combined 85+ years of experience at prestigious downtown law firms. But, we have found a better way to provide our services directly and efficiently to clients. By eliminating unnecessary overhead traditionally associated with large firms, we’re able to provide our clients the flexibilities and efficiencies of a boutique firm, together with the skill and proficiency clients have come to expect with larger firms. Rejecting outdated billing models, we don’t bill for costs like photocopies, faxes, or internal office expenses. Instead of passing clients off to an inexperienced associate, we provide our direct phone lines. You don’t have to sacrifice expertise or efficiency. With HBC, you get both.

Whether it be transactions or dispute resolution, we are professional problem solvers. Our clients entrust us with serious, complex, and sensitive matters. We respect this trust by mastering the issues and applying our experience to innovatively resolve problems.

We are eager to identify billing relationships that work best for our clients. Although we typically provide our legal services on an hourly basis, we also use alternative billing arrangements like fixed fees, monthly retainers and partial or full contingent fee arrangements.

Just off of I-5 and 217, we are easy to find and have ample parking. Our location reduces the cost and inconvenience imposed by downtown traffic and parking.
