< go back to attorney list

"Zealous and aggressive representation can exist comfortably and harmoniously with the delivery of quality and timely legal representation while upholding the highest ethical standards of practice. I strive to make these harmonious philosophies in my practice of law. My relationship with my clients is generally one of an old style family or general counsel where I am called upon for guidance and consultation. My greatest satisfaction comes from seeing people move on with their lives happily and prosperously."

Harley's practice consists of estate & elder planning, estate settlement, zoning and family business.
