Litigation Attorneys with Decades of Experience

The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA), known as the “Rocket Docket,” is widely recognized as the fastest federal court in the country. Handling cases on the “Rocket Docket” require intimate familiarity with that court’s rules and procedures and the ability to litigate as fast as the court demands. Cases can (and are) lost because of procedural miscues and failure to prepare in the time allowed. 

At Harvey Law Offices, PLLC, we have successfully represented clients in the “Rocket Docket” for decades. Philip J. Harvey is well-known and respected throughout the EDVA. Our offices are located in Old Town, not far from Alexandria’s Albert V. Bryan Courthouse.
