Mr. Harlow is a very positive and upbeat attorney. He has great patience and listens in great detail and asks many questions to make sure he understands the issue. Mr. Harlow put every single bit of effort into my case, and researched every single angle to be sure that I had the best possible outcome.

You don’t have to meet many lawyers to get the feeling that the field is disproportionately populated by people who, with a slightly less auspicious upbringing, could just as easily have ended up as shady used car dealers or worse. Thankfully, Thomas Leslie Harlow (Les) is not one of those. Les handled my domestic case, but I’ve used him for other, less emotionally fraught, issues as well, such as will writing and business advice. The reasons I keep going back and am loathe to consider anyone else: He’s smart, rational, reasonable, likable, and, perhaps most importantly for a lawyer, honest and realistic. He’ll tell you his view of a case, not just what you want to hear. He’ll help you prepare the best case that you can, and you feel safe following his advice because he’s had decades of experience (he came highly recommended to me decades ago, in fact).

My sense, too, is that Les has an excellent reputation within the legal community. That’s important. I can imagine that just like most of us, judges respect someone of high character, who plays above board and does not resort to dirty tricks or engage in ethically or legally questionable tactics. I always felt that Les kept my best interests foremost in mind, even when that meant not presenting evidence that felt emotionally relevant to me but was not, in fact, beneficial to obtaining the result I desired. In short, I think that if you’re looking for an outstanding, honest lawyer who will move you expeditiously toward your goal, Les is your guy.

Mr. Harlow provided excellent legal representation to me during a particularly difficult time when I needed someone to really listen to my needs and concerns while also advising me based on what would be in my best interests in the long-run. He was very thorough in his research and planning, while at the same time keeping me well-informed and up to date on all aspects of my case at all times. I would highly recommend him for anyone in need of a highly capable attorney and wonderful human being. His staff is excellent as well. I greatly appreciate all of their efforts and hard work on my behalf

I have known Mr. Harlow for many years and I wouldn't even think of going to anyone else for legal help. He has been there, completely calm and collected, from the beginning to the end of my "situations". In each case, the results have been better than expected. He even checks in after to make sure you're doing ok. His personal investment in his clients makes one comfortable in a difficult situation, knowing that he is doing the absolute best he can.

Attorney Harlow Jr. was a gamechanger with my expungement case. He was able to successfully appeal a myopic, unjust decision by a judge and presented a multi-faceted argument drawing from code & case law. He was so thorough the judge relied only on the first part of his argument, but he had alot more prepared. I would recommend Thomas Harlow Jr. if you want an attorney who is obsessed with winning, has a good staff and regularly communicates, and gives you the confidence of a solid fighter in your corner


Les Harlow is an excellent attorney. He does more types of legal work than just divorce and separation. He has a calm manner and his experience and understanding of the complexities of the legal system are informative and helpful in decision making. He also is very good at figuring out what might happen and letting you know in advance so that you aren't so surprised.

​Mr. Harlow's excellent professional and communications skills were evident from our first meeting during which he patiently listened to the details of our issues. His calm, confident, gentle and respectful style inspired a sense that he would dedicate his outstanding legal skills and knowledge in order to provide the best possible results. Throughout my case, he was accessible, informative and kept us focused on everything required to move through the difficult process. He was able to provide results well above and beyond any that I thought likely. His caring and compassion were evident through the process and afterwords, calling and meeting with us to ensure that we were completely satisfied with his services. I strongly recommend that anyone seeking legal assistance consider asking Mr. Harlow to represent them.

​From the first time I met Mr. Harlow, he made me feel at ease about the case against me. Within 30 minutes of meeting him, he gave me incredible advice and direction on what I should do next. Other attorneys I considered couldn't even fully grasp the main premise behind the case against me. Mr. Harlow impressed me with his experience and vast amount of general knowledge regarding events surrounding my case. He truly made me feel comfortable during a very stressful time. He put together a solid defense and was spot-on with his thinking and approach throughout my experience with him. In my opinion, his level of professionalism is unparalleled in his industry. I was amazed to see him take his own detailed notes regarding my case during my meetings and phone conversations with him, not relying on an assistant or other "partner". This demonstrated to me that he cared for my case and took a vested interest in defending me. I would, without a doubt, use Mr. Harlow's services in the future should the need arise.


Mr. Harlow has provided professional legal services to my family for several years. We found Mr. Harlow to be professional, courteous, attentive and compassionate. He has a wonderful personal touch that mitigates the anxiety one often experiences when dealing with the legal/court system. Mr. Harlow is one of the nicest, most caring professionals I've ever had the pleasure to know. I would recommend him without reservation
