I wanted to thank everyone for coming out the Nixpo. Our booth was a huge success. This was our first year at the Nixpo, and I must say I was very impressed with how much support the event is receiving from the community. As many of you know, you could register to win a Keurig coffee maker at our booth. Many stopped by to register, but only one person could win. Congratulations to Karen Wilcox!
Many of you that stopped by had legal questions, or were interested in hiring an attorney for problems you were experiencing. Our office offers FREE consultations, so we can determine the extent of your legal needs and decide if we are a good fit. As Nixa's only general practice law firm, there are few options available local. It is for that reason that we engage is a variety of legal fields, If we are unable to assist you we don’t just send you on your way. We take the time to find an attorney that can help you. We then directly connect you with that attorney, so you can avoid that awful run-around feeling.
Finally, I wanted to remind everyone to get out and vote April 2nd. As many of you know the City of Nixa will be having an election and I am on the ballet as running for Municipal Judge. I don't take this position lightly. I think it is important that the City of Nixa continue to develop its Municipal Court in order to keep up with the rapid growth of the city. If elected, I will focus my efforts on deterring crime, reducing recidivism (repeat offenders), and developing a community service program that will benefit the community.
I have had a great opportunity to meet with local law enforcement, and I have listened to their concerns. I think it is important that the community develop a partnership with local law enforcement and that those efforts be supported by a Municipal Court. I am asking for the opportunity to do that.
I hope to get your vote April 2nd!
Joel T. Harris
Attorney at Law
