hired Curtis to represent me in a cut and dry case in which I was charged with DUI other with no field sobriety test. After several months of payments he failed to appear before court on my behalf. Warrants were issued and I never even knew it until I recieved a letter stating my license had been suspended. When I called the courthouse they informed me no one had even notified them they were representing me! Mr Crowley never returned my calls, emails, or letters, and will not come to his office door when I knock on it. Spinless excuse of a lawyer

misconduct: of Harvey Curtis Crowley
I hired this attorney October of last year in Madison County for a DUI charge pending against me.
he advise me to plead nolo contendere on a 0.02 DUI in Mississippi Rankin County Justice Court.
he told me he will appeal it in a higher court which he had to do in 30 days.
I have called his office on a number of occasions which no return phone calls back.
I talk to his secretary on occasions and she told me his messages were received.
After asking why my calls were not return.
After that I receive 2 phone calls from Harvey Curtis Crowley I asked him what progress has he made on my case advise me I had to pay court fees.
I had no problem paying for the fees. I asked him what are the total court costs and get back to me. after waiting a couple days i called his office again.
no return phone call after that. I called his secretary reminding her that the 30 days is almost up for filing the appeal and to tell Harvey Curtis Crowley to file the appeal and I will pay the court costs.
I get a notice of my license being suspended. i called his office and ask why I got this notice. I talk to his secretary and she don't know why and she will have him call me.
After going to the courthouse and inquiring about the notice also learn he did not file the appeal and I was held in contempt of court for that.
That afternoon I called his office and asked for a explanation for all this. the secretary said she will give him the message. no calls returned after that.
I later discovered that he had not done any work on my case for 4 months.
fees payed to Harvey Curtis Crowley $950 + some.
I had to fire this attorney.
I am stuck with this charge on my record because of this attorney.
I have found out ex clients of Harvey Curtis Crowley having similar problems.
please be aware perspective clients
this is true and factual to my best ability

I was a client of this attorney. He was to assist me in completing a commercial transaction. He charged me $200 up front, then did nothing. He does not respond, and he does not do the work he was hired to do. Do not use this lawyer.
