Firm Overview

Advocates for the Injured and Disabled

Maynard & Harris Attorneys at Law, PLLC, is a Winston-Salem law firm working exclusively in personal injury, workers' compensation, Social Security Disability and insurance disputes. We help only injured or disabled people and their families, never representing insurance companies, employers or other powerful defendants.

We are not a law firm that takes in numerous cases and has little time to spend with you. We are a small, client-centered law firm that offers one-on-one attention from experienced, compassionate lawyers. We purposely keep our caseload manageable so that we can give your case the time it requires. We take the time to listen, to address your worries and explain your rights. Every client gets our best effort, even in cases that are not as cost-effective for us, because we believe in our mission — helping ordinary people stand up for what they deserve.

Our Attorneys

A chief asset of Maynard & Harris Attorneys at Law, PLLC, is the experience of our lawyers. C. Douglas Maynard Jr. has worked as a personal injury lawyer for 22 years. Celeste M. Harris has over 25 years of experience, and is board-certified in North Carolina workers' compensation law. Both of our attorneys are also experienced in mediation. They have successfully handled hundreds of cases for people throughout Winston-Salem, Forsyth County and surrounding areas of North Carolina.

See our Practice Areas page to learn more about our work.

Both of our lawyers previously worked in fields that have great significance to their current practice. Mr. Maynard spent several years working as an insurance adjuster, and now uses his in-depth knowledge of insurance law to demand full compensation for injury victims and to represent policyholders involved in insurance disputes. Ms. Harris worked as a registered nurse, and she now uses her medical knowledge to help injured people get the money they need to pay for medical bills, future treatment and other expenses after a serious or catastrophic injury.

Our Staff

We have a caring staff of four legal assistants with more than 60 years of collective experience. Our paralegals, Bridget, Jeannie, Michaelene and Debby, work very closely with our attorneys to keep cases moving smoothly and efficiently through the legal process. They are always available to answer questions about the progress of your case.

Debby, who grew up in Mexico, is fluent in Spanish and English and works primarily with our Spanish-speaking clients. In addition to our friendly and capable legal assistants, Jo answers calls and greets clients in addition to her many other responsibilities assisting the attorneys and staff.
