 Law Offices of Shane L. Harward, P.L.C, formerly of Anderson, Hurwitz and Harward, P.C., provides competent and fair services to all our clients, both business and individuals, whether it be for a multimillion dollar wrongful death lawsuit or a relatively minor rear-end car collision resulting in personal injury. The Firm has offices in Scottsdale, Maricopa County, Arizona and Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona and is known and respected for its aggressive representation in a wide range of legal areas including, but not limited to:

Phoenix Insurance Bad Faith Attorney
Shane Harward has built a solid reputation as an Arizona insurance bad faith attorney representing the interests of insureds against high powered insurance companies who are more concerned about the insurance companies' financial interests than honoring the insurance contract obligations to the insurance policyholders. An insurance bad faith attorney needs to be prepared to diligently fight to empower the insured client against the insurance companies which are often being motivated by greed. Mr. Harward continues to do this successfully.

Serious Personal Injury and Accident Lawyer in Arizona
If you've suffered severe personal injuries and someone is at fault... we need to talk! Personal injury cases often involve serious and permanent injuries including head injury, spine injury, brain injury, burn injury, broken bones, knee injury, neck injury, back injury, shoulder injury, muscle and ligament injury, herniated or bulging discs, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) also known as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), paralysis, paraplegia, and quadriplegia, and sometimes death.

Scottsdale Arizona Semi Truck Accident Attorney
The number of large trucks traveling on highways is increasing every year. Because trucking companies and truck drivers are motivated by profit, safety concerns often diminish and other drivers suffer the consequences. This is true for any truck accident or truck crash involving a semi truck, 18-wheeler, big rig, or even the neighborhood garbage truck.

Phoenix Arizona Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Over 80% of multi-vehicle accidents involving motorcyclists are not the biker's fault.

Motorcyclists are more vulnerable than other motorists, and motorcycle accident, motorcycle collisions, and motorcycle crashes often involve serious injuries, including brain injury, burns, fractures and breaks, dislocations, neck injuries, back injures, nerve injuries, paralysis, and spinal cord injury. Motorcyclists are often injured, through no fault of their own, by negligent car drivers and truck drivers who fail to see them or fail to yield the right of way.

Scottsdale Arizona Animal Attack / Dog Bite Attorney
Dog bites and animal attacks are unpredictable, and all too often result in serious personal injuries, emotional trauma, and even death in the case of a fatal attack. While pit bull attacks seemingly receive the most attention, any dog can obviously bite and, under certain circumstances, any dog or animal can become a dangerous animal. Many states, including Arizona, have specific dog bite laws that provide protection for dog bite victims.

Arizona Slip, Trip and Fall Accident Injury Attorney
"Slip and fall" accidents typically involve a situation where a person is injured by slipping, tripping and falling due to a dangerous condition. Falls can take place both inside and outside and can result from bad flooring, wet floors, poorly lighted steps, weather-related conditions, and hidden defects. Icy patches, a crack in a sidewalk, or a pothole are also factors that can cause serious slip and fall injuries.

Scottsdale Wrongful Death Attorney
While no human life can simply be defined by a monetary value, if you lose a treasured family member, you deserve to be reimbursed for the loss of income, support and companionship the person provided to you and your family. A "wrongful death" occurs when a person is killed due to the wrongful act, neglect or fault of another individual, company or entity. An action for wrongful death belongs to the decedent's immediate family members or estate depending upon the circumstances.

Scottsdale Mediation Attorney / Certified Mediator
If the circumstances of our clients' cases warrant it, we do not hesitate to participate in alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation and arbitration, to resolve disputes to our clients' satisfaction, rather than needlessly escalating adversarial, expensive and time-consuming legal battles. Put simply, we place a special emphasis on creative, flexible thinking in order to tailor our representation to our clients' needs.

The Firm intentionally endeavors to set itself apart from the general opinion and attitude surrounding many law firms. The Firm is founded on integrity, honesty, hard work and dedication to our clients. As our attorneys are in the business of solving problems, not creating more problems, they pride themselves in being available to our clients, to the public in general, as well as to opposing counsel. The Firm believes that most disputes, if not all, can be successfully resolved with plain professionalism and common courtesy to all those involved.

Shane L. Harward is a certified mediator and Judge Pro Tempore with Maricopa County Superior Court. Mr. Harward provides a wide range of services in the area of conflict resolution. The Firm has earned a good reputation in this area by helping parties obtain positive results in peacefully settling disputes without the expense and stress of litigation. Moreover, Mr. Harward is intent on serving those already involved in litigation in obtaining a successful conclusion to their lawsuit in a timely manner. Mr. Harward provides alternative dispute resolution services, including mediation, in all types of legal matters and is willing to work with the parties before and during the mediation, as well as following up if a compromise is not reached at the initial mediation conference.

Finally, Mr. Harward realizes that the Firm's responsibility to problem resolution extends well beyond the practice of law. The Firm is a caring, supportive member of the community. We have sponsored Little League Baseball Teams for children and City League Basketball Teams for adults. We have provided extensive pro bono legal services to numerous indigent clients through a variety of programs. In fact, Mr. Harward received an award for such service from the Maricopa County Volunteer Lawyers Program.

In addition, Mr. Harward has participated in community and civic service organizations.
