Community Involvement

Our Commitment to the Community

At Maynard & Harris Attorneys at Law, PLLC, we believe very strongly in community service. Our attorneys are involved in legal organizations that give back to the community, including the North Carolina Academy of Trial Lawyers, the American Association of Justice (formerly known as the American Trial Lawyers Association), the North Carolina Bar Association, the Workers Injury Law and Advocacy Group, and several women's law groups and legal aid organizations.

Celeste Harris was recognized as Volunteer Attorney of the Year 2010, by the Winston-Salem office of Legal Aid Society of North Carolina, Inc. at the annual Pro Bono Attorney Celebration on April 20, 2011. She was recognized for her six years of service as Chair of the Local Advisory Council and for helping people with low incomes as a volunteer attorney in a variety of legal matters.

Outside of handling cases, Douglas Maynard and Celeste Harris are in-demand as speakers, and have led many seminars on the subjects of insurance law, workers' compensation law and the use of medical records in personal injury matters. Our attorneys use their legal experience to advise nonprofit agencies and sit on community boards including Legal Aid of North Carolina, a local school PTA board and Piedmont Wind Symphony.

Celeste Harris is actively involved in her children's educational and sports activities including serving as treasurer for her daughter's soccer team and Girl Scout Troop. She regularly donates platelets for the American Red Cross and is a Lector at her church.
