Tara A. Harris
Attorney at Law
I pursued a law degree in order to protect children and fight injustice. Starting my own practice is the next step toward achieving those goals. Since 2003 I have been a practicing trial attorney, and dedicated more than ten years of my career to serving the people of Lewis and Clark County. I have tried more than 40 jury trials, numerous judge trials, and a variety of civil and administrative hearings. I returned to private practice in January of 2015 changing my focus to estate planning, probate, guardianships, adoptions, employment law, general civil litigation, and small business planning. In addition to my legal work, I am an adjunct professor at Carroll College where I have taught Constitutional Law since 2006 and coached the Moot Court Team since its inception in 2008 until its end in 2016.
I grew up in a small town outside of Great Falls, Montana and learned from a young age the value of hard work and the difference between right and wrong. In 2000, I received my B.A. from Carroll College with distinguished honors, double-majoring in Business Administration-Management and Political Science. I earned my J.D. from the University of Montana Law School in 2003. Today I serve as a member of the State Bar of Montana, and also serve as a Board Member and Chair of the Children’s Alliance of Montana.
I find great satisfaction in being able to use my law degree to help people plan for their future, protect their families, and right wrongs. When I am not working, my husband and I can be found exploring the world through the eyes of our son and enjoying the outdoors.
