Harvey L. Cox

Attorney at Law

Harvey L. CoxHarvey L. Cox has been practicing law in Texas since 1990 and has extensive experience working with families and businesses.  He limits his practice to estate planning and asset protection planning.

Harvey earned two Bachelor’s degrees, one from Dallas Bible College in 1983 and the other from Criswell College in 1987.  Between those two degrees, Harvey did work on a Master’s of Theology degree at Dallas Theological Seminary.  He left Dallas Seminary in 1987 to pursue a career in law, graduating from the University of Houston Law Center in 1989.  (Yes, there is a story there but it’s way too long for this space so feel free to ask Harvey about it when you’re in the office or have him on the phone.)  Harvey did return to his theological studies, completing a Master’s of Theology degree in December 2018 at Campbellsville University School of Theology.

Harvey is a member of the State Bar of Texas, the Texas Bar College, and the Waco-McLennan County Bar Association.  He is a recipient of the 2019 Martindale Hubbell “Distinguished” Peer Review Rating for High Professional Achievement.

Harvey believes there is an incredible amount of misinformation, half-truths, and estate planning myths masquerading as truth.  He battles against incorrect information daily.  That’s why he devotes a significant amount of time conducting seminars in local churches, senior citizen centers, and in his office to educate Seniors on Texas Estate Planning issues.

When Harvey is not in the office helping clients or teach Senior seminars, he teaches Business Law at McLennan Community College (MCC) in Waco, Texas.  MCC also offers an extensive selection of Continuing Education classes to the public each semester.  Harvey and his Senior Legal Assistant, Gary Hill, teach a six-hour Estate Planning and Asset Protection Planning Class for Seniors as part of the Continuing Education Program.  The date of their next class is available on the Seminars Page.

Harvey was born and raised in Mexia, Texas.  He lives in Waco, Texas with his wife, Rebecca.  They have three sons.
