Attorney Harvey has been practicing law since 1988. She received her B.A., magna cum laude, from Regis College and her law degree, cum laude, from Suffolk University Law School. Following law school, Ms. Harvey was awarded a position as judicial law clerk to the Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island. Since then she has spent her legal career litigating probate and civil matters, particularly those relating to the rights of disabled individuals and their families. She has worked with the distinguished North Shore elder law firm of Stern, Keilty & Wall, and for the five years before opening her own practice, she worked at the law firm of preeminent elder law Attorneys Steve Cohen and Eric Oalican, each of whom is annually named as a Massachusetts Super Lawyer in elder law.
Attorney Harvey was appointed by Attorney General Martha Coakley to be a member of the statewide Personal Care Attendant (PCA) Workforce Council and has also served on the North Shore Aging and Disability Resource Consortium. Both organizations support the efforts to keep elderly and disabled persons at home, rather than in nursing home facilities, through the use of in-home supports. Ms. Harvey lives on the North Shore with her husband Paul, a Lynn firefighter, and their three sons.
