Atlanta Legal Practice Devoted to Clients in Criminal Defense, Entertainment Law & Civil Litigation
The legal practice at Jana Harris Law, LLC in Atlanta, Georgia is driven by the commitment to excellence in providing legal services in the areas of entertainment law, criminal defense and civil litigation involving severe personal injury or wrongful death.
Long-time Leader in Entertainment Law in Georgia the Southeast
Our entertainment law practice is devoted to attending to the contractual and business needs of our clients, who are artists and professionals in the television, music, book and film industries. Protecting an artist’s rights to their creative work involves negotiating and drafting agreements to protect their assets while also fighting infringement in a rapidly-changing world of media and technology. At the same time, legal assistance is often needed to make the most of one’s creative output through the negotiation of contracts and agreements related to licensing, publishing, copyrights, royalties, management and more. We respect our clients’ rights of privacy as much as their rights of publicity and work to both protect and promote them in a way that meets their business goals and legal needs.
Strong, Effective Criminal Defense of Serious State and Federal Felony Offenses
An arrest for a serious criminal offense can put your liberty and even your life at stake, but that’s not all. A criminal conviction can affect your personal life and livelihood, destroying everything you have worked so hard to build. Whether negotiating behind the scenes with the prosecutor, managing the media exposure, or providing an aggressive and effective defense in the courtroom, we strive to provide a strong defense to garner the very best outcome available.
In a career that has involved many national and high-profile cases, Jana Harris has been particularly successful in defending male clients accused of sex crimes by bringing a female voice to the defense of the often falsely-accused male client. She brings a powerful voice in their defense to demonstrate innocence in charges of rape, sexual assault, molestation, internet crimes and other sex charges. Her experience also includes representation of people charged with fraud and other white collar crimes. In addition, she has also utilized her many skills to effectively represent inmates seeking parole or other post-conviction relief.
At Jana Harris Law, we take a proactive approach to criminal defense, often working to defend the crime before there is a crime charged. If you are under investigation or believe there are charges pending, we can help you with the grand jury investigation or work with prosecutors to manage what charges are filed or in some cases prevent charges from ever being filed at all.
Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Representation from an Experienced Litigator
When you have been hurt because of the carelessness, recklessness, negligence, or even the intentional misconduct of another, you are entitled under the law to be compensated for your medical expenses, lost wages, and other legal damages. But obtaining a fair amount of compensation is not a simple matter. The law puts the burden on the injured plaintiff to prove every aspect of the case, while the insurance company lawyers representing the negligent defendant fight at every step to pay as little as possible or avoid liability altogether if they can. Our office represents victims and families of catastrophic injury and wrongful death, working to hold responsible parties accountable for their conduct and seeing to it that injury victims are not injured further by being burdened with the expense which has been inflicted upon them.
Jury Consulting From a 20-Year Veteran in the Field
As a 20-year member of the American Society of Trial Consultants, Jana Harris is frequently called upon by other lawyers to consult on their cases. Ms. Harris is particularly adept at jury selection and utilizes mock trials, focus groups, juror questionnaires, jury surveys, show juries and jury selection at trial to make the most effective use of the voir dire process. Ms. Harris has served as a jury consultant in numerous civil and criminal cases, including the murder prosecution of NFL linebacker Ray Lewis, a large-scale securities fraud scheme, a bank fraud indictment, and several sexual assault trials.
