    Attorney Profile

    A respected civil litigation lawyer, Whitney M. Harvey is an attorney at David Shapiro Law, PLLC. She works out of the firm’s offices in Scottsdale, Arizona, and she represents clients throughout the state. Ms. Harvey has been admitted to practice in Arizona since 2010, and she was admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona in the same year.

    Ms. Harvey attended Arizona State University as an undergraduate, and she majored in accounting and received a Bachelor of Science cum laude in 2007. Remaining in Tempe for her legal education, she enrolled at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, and in 2010, she was awarded her Juris Doctor and was inducted into the Order of Barristers.

    Many of Ms. Harvey’s clients have incurred significant losses due to the negligence of other persons or entities. She has filed personal injury claims on their behalf covering such incidents as workplace accidents, motor vehicle crashes involving trucks, cars, pedestrians, and motorcycles, premises liability, and defective products. These clients have received substantial amounts of compensation due to Ms. Harvey’s successes in front of juries and at the negotiating table. 

    Prior to her joining David Shapiro Law, PLLC, in January 2020, Ms. Harvey had gained significant experience in defending insurance companies and their policyholders against personal injury claims. This has allowed her to often anticipate the types of tactics that she now faces from defendants while representing plaintiffs. In addition to her negligence caseload, Ms. Harvey has handled general civil litigation matters, and her successful track record in all of her work has earned her the respect of her fellow members of the bar, as evidenced by her receipt of an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell.
