    I endorse Richard Davis without reservation. He has been practicing law for a long time and his knowledge and experience are a great asset to anyone who might need his services. Sometimes the people he is charged with helping cannot help themselves and that's when his integrity and kindness really shine through. Richard is an attorney I would hire myself.
