James W. Harvey’s 30 years of litigation experience are equally divided between insurance company staff counsel management and panel firms. Jim has tried and overseen litigation throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia and New York. He has handled nearly every aspect of property and casualty insurance litigation including automobile, premises, professional liability, coverage, bad faith, products, toxic tort, employment and civil rights cases.
Jim is an advocate for the use of technology to gain efficiencies, improve outcomes and lower costs. His practice is as paperless as possible. He understands the benefits of the litigation planning process and timely updating. While the initial plan is the case roadmap and often the most important document in the file, the updates help determine whether detours are necessary and prevent those detours from causing delays and increasing expense.
