My niece hired him for a custody suit where time was of the essence. His male secretary gladly took their $500 cash down payment ( i was there to witness that). Mr. Davis was never available and NEVER returned calls. It has been almost 9 months since she paid and he has done nothing. When he was run in to by a family friend in public, she asked why he was not returning her calls. He did not even know who his client was. I wouldn't be surprised if his "secretary" is just a front for collecting money. Now she's out the cash and in desperate need of a new lawyer. Read the reviews on different sites. Do NOT hire this excuse of a lawyer.

This lawyer is NOT recommended.I was a client willing to pay whatever was required to accomplish our legal objectives.He was chosen because he had knowledge and previous experience with our situation.When we were able to speak to him it was all positive... but when it came to getting it done this guy DOESNT RETURN CALLS. Our situation was time critical so we chose another.Note: much time was wasted speaking to his very polite / sympathetic "gate keeper. The standard reply fm him was "he's in court, I understand and will relay the message."DONT EXPECT A CALL or even something as simple as a requested receipt detailing charges so they can be used in another case (by a real lawyer) to recoup legal fees. My assessment of this gent is he's an empty suit.Hire Mr. Davis if you want to be treated like an after thought.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
