I consider myself lucky to be one of Joel’s clients. His devotion to personal attention and a customized experience is second to none. When I came to Joel after having some negative experiences at another agency, Joel jumped right in and I immediately felt comfortable and knew I made the right choice. He is now a trusted advisor and someone I highly recommend without hesitation.

I had insurance with a mass market company for twenty-five years and believed I had good insurance despite not having regular contact with my agent. It was not until I had a minor auto accident that got complicated due to some extenuating circumstance that I felt uncovered. In the middle of that debacle, I was introduced to North Shore Risk Management through a referral. Joel was amazing! He was helpful, professional, and spent time to understand my needs and my risks. He shopped my business with premium carriers and gave great advice. I was shocked to find out that I could get premium coverage from highly rated and high-quality company, more coverage, the personal touch of Joel Harris, and even save a little money. My only regret is I didn’t find him earlier. I offer my highest possible recommendation with zero reservation whatsoever.
