Heidi Levine, co-managing partner of DLA Piper’s New York office, stated, “Savaria is a talented and highly respected litigator.

Her unique and impressive skill set, combined with significant pro bono contributions, lend themselves well to the firm’s client base, entrepreneurial culture and social responsibility efforts.”

Harris is also a member of the Advisory Council for the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, the largest anti-fraud organization in the world. The organization is also a premier provider of anti-fraud training education and certification.
