Mark joined Palmers in 2015 as a solicitor, having previously been a Partner at another successful Essex firm. He began his higher education in 1982 originally obtaining a degree in Chemistry and Business Studies from Leeds University. However, in 1985, he changed his career path and became a lawyer in an Essex practice. Whilst working for them, he achieved both an honours law degree and passed the Law Society final examination with merit, qualifying as a solicitor in June 1994. Mark has worked for firms in Essex and London as a Civil Litigation and Criminal Lawyer and during that time has obtained experience in many different legal fields. Mark is based at our Basildon branch in the Debt and Insolvency Department but also has experience in:
- Residential and Commercial Possession proceedings
- Commercial Litigation
- Contract Disputes and Consumer Law
- Probate Disputes
- Property Disrepair and Claims against the Police
His long and wide-ranging experience and commonsense approach to potential difficulties and achieving the objectives desired by his clients make Mark a useful member of the Palmers team. He is approachable and can provide advice at an initial consultation under Palmers Fixed Fee scheme and will explain the options that are available both legally and for the funding of our legal services; whether it will be by way of ‘no win no fee’, insurance-based work or the traditional solicitor retainer basis.
Mark Harris – You are hard working, prudent and explain problems very clearly and in detail, especially the possible risks involved.
Mr D Chan – Basildon, June 2017
Mark Harris & Natasha Kelt – I used Palmers Solicitors, Basildon recently and found them extremely helpful, their assistance with advise right through to the SCC hearing was spot on and I won on the day with an out of court settlement. I was constantly advised by them to relax and forget about the issues, they were there to help. Without them I may not have got the outcome I wanted. Now I can get on with my life knowing that should I ever need Solicitor assistance again I will go back to the best.
Ms Holwill, Basildon, January 2017
