Judicial Officer of the Year 2016
In December of 2017, Judge Harrison had the distinct honor of being selected as the Judicial Officer of the Year by the East West Family Law Council (comprised of attorneys, judicial officers, and court experts and staff from the Inland Empire and Los Angeles County). Family Law cases often involve parties who are highly emotional and invested in their desire to prevail in court, which makes for a challenging task for judges/judicial officers to be found to be fair to both/all sides by the attorneys, staff and experts. The recipients of this coveted award are known for showing outstanding judicial temperament, fairness and lack of bias to both sides in litigation, and a good knowledge of the law.
