    • I recommend Anne Harvey.

    I was a trial attorney for 15 years. I had a custody fight that lasted two years over my three boys that their mother was trying to take from me. Even though I was an attorney, I knew I need one. Anne is endorsed as a specialist in Domestic Relations Law in Ohio (a rare feat that requires testing and certification by the state of Ohio). I hired Anne. Anne was incredible. I have an enormous ego and I questioned everything. Anne calmed me down explained everything and kept fighting. Not loud screaming like on TV, but diligent litigation and prodding of opposing counsel. In the end everything was dismissed. I tell many people that attorneys hire different lawyers than regular people. We dont hire based on ads, or word of mouth, we hire on ability, integrity, how they are respected by Judges, and results. So I hired Anne Harvey. Consummate professional. Stop looking hire Anne if you want effective honest represetation. She wont always tell you what you want to hear, she will always tell you what you need to hear.

  2. She told me what I needed to hear

    • I recommend Anne Harvey.

    When I was looking for a divorce lawyer, I saw Attorney Anne Harvey was highly rated. I wondered if I needed someone of her caliber for what I thought was a simple case. Boy, was I glad I chose Ms. Harvey! My divorce turned out to be not so simple and Ms. Harvey demonstrated exceptional knowledge of divorce law, was confident in court and was very capable of defending me and my interests. But what I appreciated most was her straight forwardness in assessing my case. She told me what the law was, what I could expect and what she could do for me. She didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear; she told what I needed to hear. I didn’t want a lawyer that paints a rosy picture and then doesn’t deliver. Instead, Ms. Harvey’s counsel is rooted in law and her experience in the court. When I was in court, I knew I had made the right decision in who was representing me. Divorce alone is stressful. Why add to that stress by choosing the wrong lawyer? I highly recommend Attorney Anne Harvey.”

  3. Big promises, no results.

    • I do not recommend Anne Harvey.

    Did not look out for my best interests or my children. Would rather be friends with the opposing counsel. She will sell you down the river by making unauthorized agreements with the opposing counsel. When you confront her she will withdraw. Do not hire this attorney.

      This is untrue. A client must appear for court to be successful. Divorce lawyers deal with many angry people and almost always do their best, even when insulted.

    • I do not recommend Anne Harvey.

    I thought I hired a good attorney when I hired Anne. She did not protect my interest and I have had to hire another attorney to repair the damage. She did not take care of the survivorship issues with my divorce. It is a potential $130,000 mistake which could have and should have been easily addressed. When I confronted her on this, she called me a stupid little man. She refuses to correct her error or take ownership of it. She just made a huge mess, then withdrew as my lawyer. In short, she received nearly $5000 from me for my case, screwed part of it up, then quit. It has already cost me another $2500 to hire another attorney and attempt to repair her errors. Do not use this attorney. I have been told she does this all the time.

      I reviewed this file again after reading this review and I stand by my representation. Issues about survivorship and Social Security offsets are pretty hard to under stand. I am bound to protect attorney-client privilege even when I'm attacked in public. Think about how much restraint it takes not to respond in kind!

    I had a protection order case and had a lot of my 'evidence' tampered with by the other party. Despite this set-back, Anne was STILL able to get the protection order approved. She answered all of my questions and calmed my nerves during this entire process. There will probably be future needs for her services and I would not trust anyone else with my case. Thank you very much for everything Anne!!

    Ms Harvey was my divorce lawyer after my 30 year marriage failed. She is a passionate fighter and will do her very best for you. Her staff is amazing and very helpful during such a stressful time. I sing her praises to everyone I know and would highly recommend her to anyone who would need excellent professional guidance.

      It can be overwhelming to terminate a long term marriage. Stress and setbacks are opportunities to show your strength. Thanks!

    • I recommend Anne Harvey.

    After being divorced for 8 years I sought custody of my 11 year old daughter. I was not confident the courts would give an 11 year old girl to her father but my ex was doing everything she could to keep me out of her life. I turned to Anne and she gave me the confidence to go forward and in the end I did win full custody of my daughter. Anne was very direct and honest about everything. I followed other review advice and did not badger her with endless emails, text or phone calls. I put 100% of my faith in her and she did an outstanding job. She has helped change the life of my daughter and I both and we can never possibly thank her enough for all she has done.

    Attorney Anne assisted me with my case in the court of appeals. My regular attorney was unable to go to my hearing due to a trial and Anne jumped right in and helped me. Without her, I would have not been represented. I truly appreciate her willingness to assist. Attorney Anne goes the extra mile!

    • I recommend Anne Harvey.
    • I hired Anne 1-3 years ago.
    • Anne handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I am the father of an 8 yr old boy and recently went through a divorce after 16 yrs. Anne helped gain me full custody as my son and in the end no spousal support was due. This was all in the best interest of my child as she could clearly see. Please do not go to Anne if you are looking for any sort of sympathy or regret. If you want a proffesional hard working attorney with much experience and knowledge, that is what you'll get from her. Anne knows the system and what is of importance and what is not. Do not bombard her with emails or phone calls day in and day out. Please be patient if you do not get an immediate response. She is a busy woman and if it is of importance then she's on it..if she thinks it can wait then you may not hear back. A divorce is one of the most grueling experiences you will ever go through. Anne will get it done..and on top of that she'll do it with miles and miles of style.

    • Anne handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Anne represented and drew up an addendum to custody papers. She thoroughly explained the process and cost upfront. She or her staff kept me informed and updated as needed. I received the official document almost immediately after it had been processed by the courts.
    I found Anne to be honest, upfront, professional, and extremely knowledgeable.I absolutely would use her services again. I would and have recommended her.
