About Allison

Learn Allison’s areas of practice.

My goal is to provide proactive legal services to keep business owners away from litigation. I provide assistance with all aspects of your business from incorporation to employee management to closing your business or selling your shares.

 

Small and Mid Size Business owners need legal representation or advice for everyday business matters such as contract negotiation, hiring and firing decisions, employee handbook help and collections but not necessarily full time corporate counsel. Many businesses choose not to obtain legal advice because they think it will cost too much. Law firms have high hourly rates which also can lead to uncertain legal costs. The solution is part time corporate counsel services. Businesses can pay a monthly fee for which I provide you a guaranteed number of hours per month. I handle any corporate issue you need assistance with much like full time corporate counsel would. You know what your legal fees are monthly and know you have someone you can trust advising you on legal matters that could make or break your business.

 

I also provide services on an hourly basis.

 

You may be thinking why should I choose the Law Office of Allison L. Harvey? Simply put, I know how to work with a small or midsized business. I understand how small businesses are different and understand the dynamics that go into making decisions in family run businesses. I care about the end result and I work hard to get you want you want. I have been corporate counsel for a small business. I have handled their everyday business matters including employee decisions (hiring/firing/suspensions/discipline), employee handbooks, contracts and independent contractor relationships. I have assisted with wage and hour disputes and successfully negotiated winning resolutions that avoided litigation. I have created, negotiated and administered large and small business contracts. I can and will get the job done efficiently and correctly.

Fantastic Lawyer
We are a small business and Allison has represented us for many years on all sorts of business issues that arise from employment challenges to collecting from delinquent clients to issues with non-performing tenants. Allison is very reliable and creative in coming up with solutions to issues that arise in business.

Excellent
I would highly recommend Allison. She was exactly what I needed in a time crunch. She was fast and had a grasp of the situation with only half a days briefing. She was fought for me and didn't back down from the oppostion. Her staff was helpful and friendly which added to the overall positive experience.

Allison Harvey Is Awesome
I would rate Allison 10 Stars on all of the above. Allison managed my case in a timely manner and is extremely knowledgeable in her field. I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of a Business Attorney.

Best Lawyer in the Business
Allison is very easy to work with and has very open communication. She keeps us informed every step of the way and is always available to answer any questions that arise. She is professional and approachable, which is a change from the Attorneys I have experience with in the past. I would recommend her to anyone looking for quality Attorney services.

Immediately helped me with professionalism and proficiency
As a small business owner, I was lost on what to do when I huge company was not giving me the services they said they would provide. Allison was knowledgeable and consistent. She saved me a lot of money in the long haul. I would recommend her to anyone and she will be the first person I will turn to for future advice.

Very personable service!
I contacted Allison to see if she might be able to help us with a personal issue we were having. Allison said she would see if she could help us. Within a day she called me back with a plan that was the best for my family. She was prompt and was able to come up with a plan that was cost effective for my family. She gave us options and ideas of what we could do. What I appreciated the most was that she held my hand during the process. A few weeks later she contacted me to see how things went. I really thought that little touch was awesome. I will be using Allison again and would refer her to any family & friends.

Yes, use her, she is one of the good ones!
I Had Allison setup my business Inc. She got it done fast and correct (sounds like that's to be expected, but I have had this messed up before). She kept me in the loop the whole time, and got it done exactly as I wanted, faster than I expected. Since then I have learned to rely on her expertise on several business matters and I am expecting her help in several future needs with structuring and such. I have used about 12 attorneys in my life, and I would put Allison Harvey in the very top of that list. I have had my share of mediocre to bad, and will never waste my time or money with anything but the best ever again, it cost too much to settle for less! So, my advice; quit shopping, hire Allison Harvey and relax knowing she is one of the good ones.

Highly Recommend
Ms. Harvey has been a part of our business team for the past 2 years. She has created our employee manual, per the particular laws in our state, she has advised and counseled on many small and large decisions. She has been invaluable. In this day and age, especially in California, having a business without a lawyer is not an option. I feel confident as a business owner knowing that Ms Harvey has my legal back!

Endorse Allison
Corporate and incorporation Attorney | May 25
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Allison and I have worked together on a number of matters, and it has always been a pleasure. She truly cares for her clients and is very professional. I wholeheartedly endorse her!"
Wrongful termination Attorney | Dec 02
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I had a large and complex wrongful termination case in Auburn, and Allison agreed to try the case with me. I never worked with Allison before, so I didn't know what to expect. I was immediately impressed with her ability to quickly grasp both the subject matter and immerse herself in the case. Ms. Harvey also thought of strategies and issues in the case that I had never thought of before. To be quite honest, this doesn't happen often with me and I was thrilled to have her on our side. The trial went 12 days, and the jury returned a verdict in our favor, even awarding us punitive damages. This too, is a very rare event in ultra-conservative Placer County. Allison was a natural throughout the trial, and together we were able to beat a much larger and wealthy adversary with four attorneys on their side. I give my highest recommendation to Ms. Harvey. You are lucky if you are able to get her as your advocate."
Corporate and incorporation Attorney | Dec 02
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
