After being nominated by President Biden and confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Ms. Harris has now assumed the role of leading the agency that is charged with protecting the federal civil service merit systems.

Ms. Harris had worked with our law firm for over 20 years.

Following Harris’ departure, the firm has been renamed Kator, Parks, Weiser & Wright, PLLC.
