Managing Attorney at MKH Accident Attorneys.

There are two things that drive our firm; the love of practicing law, and zealously fighting for those who can't fight for themselves. Our number one priority in creating this firm was to create a safe haven for our clients and their right to be heard. We have seen how other firms have set out with the best intentions, but failed to foster a relationship where the clients come before themselves.

While fighting for our clients, we quickly realized that there are so many other areas in which people like you--the "little guy" need and deserve zealous advocacy. Shortly after that realization, MKH Accident Attorneys began representing clients in other matters including: family law matters (divorce, child custody and visitation, retraining orders, etc.), guardianship, conservatorships, landlord/tenant disputes, contract disputes, and other civil matters.

We understand it may seem odd that we have not changed the name of the firm, but the name is part of our story, who we are, why we do what we do, and why we spend the countless hours and sleepless nights fighting for justice for our clients--it simply would not feel right to us to change the name, as it truly is part of this firm's identity and foundation. We also thoroughly enjoy being underestimated solely based off of the name of the firm.

Abraham Lincoln once said "There is a vague popular belief that lawyers are dishonest. I say vague, because when we consider to what extent confidence and honors are reposed in and conferred upon lawyers by the people, it appears improbable that their impression of dishonesty is very distinct and vivid. Yet the impression is common, almost universal. Let no young man choosing the law for a calling for a moment yield to the popular belief -- resolve to be honest at all events; and if in your own judgement you cannot be an honest lawyer, resolve to be honest without being a lawyer."

Our clients have learned that we are a team who can be trusted and looked to in their time of need, and that there is no doubt that we will do our best to uphold the law, both ethically and legally. At MKH Accident Attorneys, we vow to be your flame in the darkness. Because we believe that good people deserve great representation.

If you, your friends, or your loved ones are in need of the representation they deserve, please have them immediately contact our firm.

Lifesaver!
After having the worst experiences with family law attorneys in the past, Ms. Alves has been the only attorney that could out me on the path to seeing my son after being crushed in the courtroom for 7 years. I am a very straightforward shooter, as is she and was able to effectively illuminate many of the inconsistencies used against me in the past. Harmony took the time to understand me and the complex situation I was in with my child and his mother, and set realistic expectations ever step of the way. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing assistance in the courtroom!!!

Knowledgable Attorney
Even just through my free consultation, I could easily tell that Harmony knew exactly what she was talking about. She was very passionate about making sure I understood the law she was explaining to me. I am keeping her number should I need future legal advice and would definitely recommend Harmony to all my friends and family because I am confident their case would be in good hands.

Harmony was professional, understanding and very thorough in her interpretations of the law. I felt as though she really had my best interest in mind. I will continue to go to her, and recommend you do the same!

Great Family Law Lawyer
I hired Harmony back in February of 2021 cause my ex wife refused to allow me to see my kids. I’m a father of 3 beautiful girls and my ex wife refused to let me see my kids, Ms Alves worked hard for me to be able to see my kids. It was a battle but now I’m able to finally see my kids. If your a father and are being denied access to your kids hire Harmony she’s a life saver who truly cares about her clients.

Respect Law & Code. Knows her [email protected]#$.
I started working with Harmony in January of this year, our case is ongoing. Before hiring Harmony Firm... I was the person thinking, "I got this". I will prepare all my docs and subpoenas. I will be my own money-sucking attorney. Really! But, experiencing the emotions of filing a missing person report to International kidding, my 2nd round of false allegations of domestic violence, and to me most importantly the denial of visitations. A loving willingness to alienate father and daughter's relationship and bond. The time I can not receive back. I had so much frustration, anger with the court's system, and the Judge... I NEEDED HELP, FAST. Our relationship from the start has been a Coach / Player relationship. Butting heads at every corner. Mostly because of me being frustrated, me not knowing and understanding the plays and the playbook of the Justice System? To get through to me Coach Attorney Harmony revamped the playbook and plays structured around me and my ability to understand and process this game of Court Chess. Which made a big difference in our player/coach relationship. Harmony has everything you're looking for in Attorney... and much more! When your Attorney "CHECK" to judge multiple times to correct her or him on conduct and court code. You know you have something special and she is that. she's: *Genuine, *Approachable, *Knownlendable of Code & Law * Passionate, *Dedicated to truth and conduct, *A lot of patience and understanding *Confident she will go "HAM" on that azz. The real deal. I'm beyond an honor to have her in my corner. Thank You, Harmony. You mean to world to us. #MyAttorney #WomenPower #Harmony #MKH #MKHAccidentAttorneys #FamilyLaw

Harmony is an epic lawyer!
Harmony Alves really knows her stuff! She was thorough in understanding the case and was an immense help as she fought for my side of the dispute. Ms. Alves explained the court process in detail before the trial date, guiding me as I learned enough for the issue to be resolved in my favor. She knew exactly when to speak up in court, expounding upon her arguments clearly, as well as knowing how to succinctly get to the point with the judge. Ms. Alves labored many long hours in preparation for court. All the while, she showed me compassion and understanding for my problems and history while in preparation meetings. With these things in mind, I highly recommend Ms. Alves to anyone who needs a fantastic lawyer.

A good thing in the middle of chaos
Divorce is really hard specially if you have no clue what to do with all the court proceedings and paperwork, so I was more than thrilled when Harmony became my attorney. She is super thorough and really knows what she is doing. She is very patient which during a hard time is really a blessing and is also very nice. She really helped me get through a high conflict divorce/ custody case and was very strategic. She is amazing and is also very understanding and is willing to work with you with payments. I do not wish divorce on any one but if you are going through a divorce I would most certainly recommend that you hire her. You will not regret it. I really prayed to find a good attorney and I am so glad I found her. She really did become the best thing that happened to me during all the madness of divorce. I could not have found some one better.

Words cannot express my gratitude and appreciation for the services Harmony Alves has provided for my family , both as a divorce attorney & as an accident attorney . She basically picked my divorce case from the rubble , it came with heavy baggage & unraveling loose ends . The work was endless trying to recuperate 4 wasted years & ironing the case back together ..Finally I was not alone , she has been there every step of the way , guiding me through , always working the hardest , pushing me not to loose courage & fight truthfully & honestly .

Harmony is Amazing!!
MKH Accident Attorneys and specifically Harmony are incredible and I recommend highly!! I really can't say enough good things about Harmony. Her motto is "Now, you're not alone". And she absolutely lives up to this promise. At every turn, she has had my back. I worked with two attorneys prior to finding her and it wasn't until I started working with her that I felt what real representation is like. She is what every attorney should be: Honest, Hard-working, Knowledgeable. But even more than that, she is Caring and Genuine. Since taking my case, I have seen more progress in 2 months with Harmony by my side than I had in almost 2 years with other attorneys! Albert Einstein once said "From discord, find harmony". In this case, it is the truth. When I came to MKH my life was in total discord, but she truly helped me to find 'Harmony'.

A Great Attorney
Harmony was an outside council for the attorney I hired, within the time she had my case which was less than a month. Everything was handled exceptionally, she's such a great attorney, very knowledgeable!. I wish I knew about her before I hired my original attorney ( not to mention his office is the worst by all aspects in how they handle their cases). You will not regret having Harmony as your attorney, btw shes very attentive to her cases not a lot of attorneys out there like her. Thank you Harmony!

Can't thank you enough!
I would recommend Harmony to anyone who is looking for a professional, highly intelligent and responsive lawyer! I worked with Harmony after getting into a car accident where the other party's insurance company had me at 40% fault, which was not accurate. Throughout the process, Harmony was very responsive and kept me well informed. Not only did she help me fight my case but she kept me calm and stress-free. I could not imagine working with another lawyer and can't thank you enough for working so diligently on my case!

Most Transparent Attorney Ever!
When it comes to hiring an attorney that is going to be truthful, compassionate, and willing to fight to the bitter end. Harmony is the Attorney you want on your side! She is so good at communication and making me better understand what is going on with my case. I have hired some attorneys in the past, but I never had one as transparent as her! I truly recommend hiring Harmony for all my friends & family members for years to come.

A Hidden Gem in the Personal Injury World
Harmony has given me legal advice on a personal injury matter during a consultation and I have worked with her in the past. I have witnessed her honesty, genuine care and ethical work towards all of her clients. She is the only personal injury attorney I would feel 100% comfortable recommending. She doesn't work to get the most $ out of a client out of selfishness, she works hard and fights for her client's rights until the end. She is organized, caring, witty, incredibly intelligent and someone that will in the future lead the way in the personal injury field. I highly respect her as a person and attorney. She wont let you down nor dissapoint you. She is the type of attorney that will always be sensitive of your hardship. She's got your back because she actually cares unlike other money-getter attorneys. She will fight for your rights ethically like no other. I highly, undoubtedly, and truly recommend her! Shes the best!

Great Attorney!
I have had the great pleasure of not only hiring Ms. Alves as my own personal attorney to assist with obtaining guardianship, but I have also had the great pleasure of working with her in personal injury matters. Ms. Alves was an attorney at a firm that I worked at previously and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and going to her for help and assistance. The great thing about Ms. Alves is she is ALWAYS operating in and for the best interest of the client. She will not take short cuts to get settlements if it means the client won't get as much of a settlement. There are a lot of attorneys out there who are more concerned with getting rich off the clients, no matter the cost, and I have seen Ms. Alves fight hard against that. She is very knowledgeable in the field, fantastic at what she does, and is passionate about taking care of her clients.

Will fight for you!
I was in a car accident in February 2018 and I knew that I needed to hire someone to fight for me. Harmony was incredibly professional and was great about keeping me in the loop of everything that was happening with my case. She fought and got me the best possible settlement and I am so glad I made the decision to hire her!
