“Michael Harmer is the most honest and sincere person that you will ever meet. He is the sort of person that makes you think twice about how you contribute to the ‘bigger picture’. His ability as a lawyer is equally as impressive and as a former client I can truly say that I have nothing but respect and admiration for what he stands and fights for.”      Kristy Fraser-Kirk
