    • I do not recommend Charles Harer.
    • I hired Charles 1-3 years ago.
    • Charles handled my Real Estate matter.

    I was a client of Ken's through a condo board. He was highly recommended, but did not live up to the recommendation. While knowledgeable about condo law, he put his own interpretation on issues that differed from other opinions I sought. He represented us in a contentious situation with a contractor who did shoddy work. Ken's approach led to delays, extra costs, and much higher legal billings. In the end, our result was probably not as good as it would have been had he taken a more direct approach, costing individual homeowners much more out of pocket expenses.

    • I recommend Charles Harer.
    • I hired Charles more than 3 years ago.
    • Charles handled my Construction / Development matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Starting in 2005 Ken Harer led a thorough investigation of our condo bldg flaws. A lawsuit in 2006 led to a settlement with the developer and the bldg was repaired between July 2, 2007 and May 20, 2008. His expertise and leadership are absolutely outstanding. We now have a building that is safe, weather tight and structurally sound, and this was accomplished with excellent overall financial results. His education and experience in law, architecture, architectural engineering, design, MBA and building business management is an unbeatable combination of knowledge for the type of litigation we needed. He is also an extremely cooperative person to work with. He provided outstanding day-to-day guidance during our project. I am a retired chemical engineer (PhD) with 30 years of management experience, and as condo board president, I worked with Ken Harer on a daily basis during our project. I would recommend him enthusiastically to anyone facing legal issues in condominium ownership and management - - and especially to the many condo associations out there with building flaws tracable to faulty work by the developer.

    • I recommend Charles Harer.
    • I hired Charles more than 3 years ago.
    • Charles handled my Construction / Development matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    I have used Ken and his firm for condominium legal work including construction defect, debt collection, condominium Declaration review and interpretation and general condominium legal work. I have found him to be highly capable and like his "reasonableness" approach to these issues. I would recommend his firm for any of this type of legal work.
