What Sets Us Apart

Harvey Law Offices, PLLC is unique among law firms in the Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. metropolitan areas. Some of the key factors that set us apart include:

1. Our “Rocket Docket” Experience

We have significant experience trying cases in the Eastern District of Virginia’s “Rocket Docket”. The “Rocket Docket” is among the fastest jurisdictions in the country, with an average “time to trial” of 11 months. Practicing in the “Rocket Docket” requires intimate familiarity with the court’s rules and procedures, as litigants can (and do) lose cases due to procedural miscues.

2. Our Local Knowledge and Insights

As a result of our experience, we know how litigation works in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., and we understand what it takes to achieve favorable results for our clients. In short, we know how to get things done. Our reputation is a significant factor in our success, and most of our clients come to us through referrals.

3. Our Practical Approach

We take a practical approach to representing our clients. We leverage facts, law, and procedural rules to our clients’ advantage. We target efficient results through all means available and provide clients with strategic, practical, results-oriented advice throughout the litigation process.

4. Our Competitive Rates

We offer the experience and sophistication of K Street law firms without the K Street rates. Our representation is attainable for both businesses and individuals. We are transparent about our fees, and we work with our clients to help them budget for their legal needs effectively.

5. Our Focused Practice

Our practice focuses exclusively on civil litigation, and we only handle cases that are in our wheelhouse. For example, while many law firms will take on any type of real estate dispute, we only take cases involving ownership and transfer issues. Zoning isn’t our thing, and we’re fine with that. If we take a case, it is because we know exactly what we can expect and because we are confident in our ability to achieve a positive result for our clients.
