Michael Harris’ service, dedication and commitment to the City of Houston, its constituents and the people at-large began as a Police Sergeant for the Houston Police Department in 1986. Since that time, commitment and community involvement has been evidenced in every area of his work, profession and career. Harris is known throughout the City and State in business, legislative, political and community arenas. While on the police force, Harris received the honor and distinction as “Officer-of-the-Year” and was also recognized with law enforcement’s “Outstanding Texan Award.”
Harris brings over 25 years’ business management, community relations, government affairs, public policy and public service to McCall. Prior to joining McCall, Harris founded The Harris Law Firm, where he represented and counseled clients in all areas of Texas law. His current practice includes tending to the day-to-day functions of advising, defending and strategically planning individual caseloads for both individuals and businesses.
Civic and educational causes are equally important to Harris, where he is involved with organizations such as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Urban League, United Negro College Fund, National Head Start Program, Texas Children’s Hospital, Gulf Coast Community Service Association, My Brother’s Keeper Outreach Center, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Star of Hope Mission, The 100 Club, Greater Houston Partnership, and the Texas Association of Business.
