About the Players

Marty Harris
HarrisMarty Harris Age:    46
Lives in:    Chicago, IL
Grew up in:    Beachwood, Ohio  (suburb of Cleveland)
Occupation:    Attorney.  Last year Marty started his own law firm, Harris & Affiliates.  He handles employment-related lawsuits everywhere in the U.S.  Most of the time he defends companies when they are sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, overtime pay, wrongful discharge, or the like.  He also represents individual executives and small business owners in a variety of employment matters:  negotiating their employment contracts or severance packages, litigating disputes that arise when a majority owner tries to fire one of his partners, or suing to obtain compensation the executive is owed.  He also has extensive experience with litigation involving non-compete agreements, misappropriation of confidential information / trade secrets (by former employees), and corporate “raiding."      
        Marty wishes his record at the bridge table matched his record in the courtroom, where he is still undefeated after 22 years of practicing law.  In the bridge arena, Marty has won several 0-5000 national events, and has come close in a couple of NABC+ events, but he is still pursuing that elusive first NABC+ victory. 
Other hobbies:    Avid golfer.  Also plays tennis and racquetball.  Enjoys other card games, too, particularly hearts and spades, along with many board games.
