4.5 stars 28 totalReview Anne Harvey
Anne Harvey is wonderful. We had a legal emergence on 12/26/15, the day after Christmas and a Saturday on top of that. I didn't know where to turn. I called and left a message with Anne and within 5 minutes she called us back. She was able to get us the information and legal advice we needed in a hurry. On Monday we met in the office and took care of what needed to be done. I don't know what we would have done that weekend is it wasn't for Anne Harvey and her staff.
I used Anne Harvey and her team to represent me in a custody battle. Anne and her team were outstanding. They got to know me and my situation and provided very sound advice. Anne was always more than professional and was always very understanding. Anne and her team did an amazing job. They were very thorough and always very professional. I would strongly recommend Anne and her team for any Divorce or custody cases.
Anne and her staff were very understanding and I truly felt Anne was looking out for my best interest. Anne took her time with me and explained things in terms I understood. I did not want a dissolution and I was not going to hire an attorney, but when the one my husband hired wasn't very competent, I decided I difinitely needed an attorney for myself. When I went for my consultation, her dog was there. I was very emotional and just petting the dog and having it there helped me feel better. I love animals and the dog made me feel calm and relaxed. (The dog stayed next to me the entire time I was there.) A colleague recommended Anne, and I'm so glad he did. I would highly recommend her and if a need would arise that I would ever need an attorney again, I will go back to her.
I paid $250 just to TALK to Anne Harvey the first time and told court papers I received that stated what my ex wanted and who his attorney was. She said she would take the case but she didn't like facing my ex's lawyer.. Mr Wagner. My biggest request was I had info that I wanted kept between Anne and myself unless my ex was under oath.. Instead at a hearing she and mr Wagner went in with magistrate & she spilled the beans!!! Then came out & said maybe u should accept my ex's offer. At this time my ex DID not report all bank accounts as court requested! After Anne Harvey dropped me because I used up the rest of $$ I had I had to use legal aid. At final hearing my legal aid attorney found that my ex had $35000 in s bank account! Under oath he said he forgot he had this for 12 years!! We had only been divorced about 6 years. My attorney said don't worry.. The court is smart.. They won't let your ex get away with that cause of IRS!!! Make sure u have plenty of extra funds for ms Harvey!
My daughter went through a 3 year horrendous custody battle. Anne knows the law and gives good advice without getting caught up in the drama that goes with divorce. She reacts as needed but does not over react. Anne will give you the information that you need and advise without pampering. Given a true emergency, Anne has made herself available nights and weekends. There isn’t a better trial attorney. If you need an attorney who will stay the course and give you your life back, hire Anne!
I learned about Anne Harvey through an advertisement postcard that came in the mail just when I needed a divorce lawyer...best luck I could have had. Anne is easy to talk to... very confident and knowledgeable about her profession. She gives great advice when you're unsure about what to do and will aggressively negotiate to get you the best results. Her staff is friendly and efficient, giving quick responses to inquiries. I am very happy I contacted her.
Anne represented my husband (and me) in a matter before the Domestic Relations Court.
Our experience with Anne Harvey and her team was professional, thorough, thoughtful, and fair.
We were looking for an attorney who would give us sound and reasonable advice, stay in communication to keep us up to date every step of the way, and have transparent monthly billing--all while being a fierce advocate for our position.
We got all that and more.
I appreciated Anne taking the time to carefully listen to our history and our concerns and offer advice on how to proceed--laying out the pros and cons and helping illuminate what we might reasonably expect. I think Anne's expertise, experience, and empathy was invaluable in helping us make sound decisions about how to move forward.
We were not versed in how the courts operate or what to expect. Anne understood that we can be perfectly confident and competent in so many other parts of our life, but totally bewildered about the court system and how to work within it on such personal family matters. Anne and her team kept us informed of everything that was happening on the case. I appreciated the regular email correspondence and her quick responses. We didn't put it to the test, but we always felt like we could reach Anne whenever we needed her. She made us feel like our case was important.
On the practical side, I think we got a good value for our money. I've heard it said that you get what you pay for. With Anne, I felt like we got more. Her billing was delivered monthly and itemized in a fashion that anyone could understand. We felt it as fair and more than earned.
I would recommend Anne to friends and family.

Anne Harvey has been my lawyer since 2011 and I have used her every single case my ex wife as taken me too (basically every year). She is very kind and caring but she wont sugar coat things..shes not the type that will tell you "you will get everything you ask for" she will tell you if the baby is ugly ...she will say the baby is ugly...and I dont know about you guys but I like that. If your a father and in the military ...she understands military very well.

I was very pleased with the counsel provided by Anne Harvey. She has always been realistic and up front about the proceedings. I would highly recommend her. I am a single father who was unmarried. Starting out in the State of Ohio I basically had no rights to my son. Anne was able to get me full custody of my son. It was a long process but she explained each step and at the end of this got my son what was in his best interest. Thank you Anne!

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.
