Harry has extensive experience litigating complex cases in state and federal court. After a jury returned a large verdict in favor of Harry’s client, the judge commented, “You should win the attorney-of-the-year award!” Harry has achieved numerous multi-million dollar verdicts on behalf of clients. After receiving a favorable jury verdict, he was greeted in chambers by a judge who said, “Well, here comes the magician!”
Trial advocacy is an art. Effective communication skills are the key to successful advocacy, and this is something Harry knows well. Efficiently communicating with clients is where it all begins. The hope is always to resolve the dispute quickly and inexpensively in the client’s favor. Clearly and convincingly presenting the client’s position to opposing counsel, judges, and ultimately jurors is Harry’s objective.
Not only has he had juries ask judges for permission to award his client’s attorney fees, his clients have been effusive about his advocacy on their behalf as well. Following one of his closing arguments to a jury, a tearful business owner thanked him and said, “If I could have found the right words to say to the jury, I would have said exactly what you said!” Hours later, that jury returned a $4,300,000 verdict in the business owner’s favor.
Innovation in the practice of law has been a long term passion. At a time when good law office systems did not exist, Harry developed computer software for law office management and served as president of the corporation that sold and supported these computer systems across the country. He was one of the first lawyers to pioneer the use of computers in the courtroom to support trial activities. This year he developed a new method to hyperlink exhibits, video and other digital media into documents he files with state and federal courts on behalf of clients. Harry is co-founder of BOS (Business Owners Solutions), an organization established to assist small business owners.
Harry represents clients in many areas involving civil litigation. His cases have involved state-of-the-art computer and software technology, bio-chemical technology, all manners of patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, business disputes, federal environmental, antitrust and civil rights cases.
