  • Gerald A Miller

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Harvey for several years. In fact he worked with me at my law firm for a number of those years. As a result I know Harvey's work first hand. Harvey is extremely bright and very knowledgeable in the area's of DWI and Criminal law. He has the unique ability to come up with defenses that other lawyers don't even think of. He is also one of the most tenacious lawyers I know. He won't back off. Harvey doesn't just get the job done, he gets results. If the need arose, I would not hesitate to hire Harvey to represent me. I fully endorse Harvey.
