    I've known Chris since college. He's bright, conscientious, and honest. I referred PI, a condo issue and got a recommendation on FL probate through him.
    If he has a serious weakness, it is one that is almost like a parody of something a narcissist (not Chris - he's the kind of chap I'd like my teenaged daughter to marry - if one could look past the age difference of course) would say when asked his weakness during an interview. He avoids over-promising.

    I contacted Mr Harwell to represent me in a landlord dispute. He wrote one letter of demand to my landlord, and when he received a counter demand, he immediately told me there would be no more pro bono work, this lawsuit would be expensive and time-consuming to litigate, and would not be worth it. I found him unprofessional and dismissive. I subsequently filed a counterclaim myself, and the landlord dropped their suit. I was totally unimpressed with Mr Harwell, and would recommend against him.
