Often when I had a tough client situation and was not quite sure what to do I would have a discussion with Harvey. He always listened carefully and always ask the above question. Of course it is a simple question but not simple to answer. A discussion always followed about who was the client, how did we determine "best interest". The discussion was always helpful and I always came away will a plan of action. I do not remember Harvey making that many suggestions. He usually just asked really good questions. Many of Harvey’s associates still remember the question and use it to help in difficult client situations.
