I and many others went to prison with him as our counsel. I had a very winnable case but he made so many mistakes. Any one knowing the truth would agree that what i did was self defense. He threw good jurors out that he should of kept, he wouldn't show some evidence that would of helped. Then at the very end of trial he told me not to testify. I told him i wanted to testify he got mad and walked away from me in a huff instead of going over what to do on the stand. So i didn't testify. I honestly felt like was trading me in to get a bigger named client off. At the refutation hearing the he didn't even show up. The judge said he didn't sign some thing that would of saved $7000. I protested i didn't even know about the document the judge said too late. When i was in prison i meat inmate after inmate who had him as an attorney.

He is your friend at the beginning telling you how good a case and how good he is and what he does after that will be nothing. He's does nothing at all other than post pone for one to two years till he says you need take plea or your going to jail BBBBUUUUTTTTTT if you want him to go to trial he will but not prepared like he was paid to be he will go a head if you want not ready but its your choice Ill go forward but!!!!! your better off with free attorney or no attorney

Very, very poor communication. Never knew what was going on with my case unless I called him directly. He's in it for the money, hands down. Fed me confidence when he wanted the money for the case, but then showed very little interest or care for fighting the case. Don't use this guy for anything serious. He spends most of his time on petty drug related crimes involving NFL players for the publicity and because it requires little knowledge of the law. Wish I hadn't gone with him in the first place. Sure he posts all of the cases he "wins" but he certainly LOST my case. Cost me A LOT of money and jail time.

I was charged with a false charge and Harvey was able to get the charge thrown out of court with no problems ! Harvey is a trust worthy man of is word! A great attorney!
