Bankruptcy is not fun, and it is something I never thought would happen to me. Mike was so kind and supportive to both my wife and I through the entire process. Our case was complicated and unique, and required extra investigation on Mike's part. He seemed to welcome the challenge, and always kept us in the loop as to where things stood. When I would drag my feet and seem hesitant to move on because of fear or embarrassment, Mike would encourage me to keep moving forward with out being pushy. We felt completely prepared when we entered the courtroom, and felt completely confident in Mike's abilities to take care of us. He did! We ended up with the best possible outcome, and I believe it is because of Mike's hard work. Mike is a kind and thoughtful man that made this experience as good as it could be. It is not what I expected. I would recommend him to anyone!

He did a very good job of explaining my options and what he thought would be the best route for me. He also kept me updated with the pertinent information and always used more than one contact type to make sure I was informed. He never made me feel like I should be ashamed of filing for bankruptcy and always made me feel comfortable with the process.

I interviewed several lawyers for my bankruptcy case. Mike Davey was the only one that was
willing to work with me on a pre-payment plan . We could not file until all payments were made but with all the research and paper work that needed to be done anyway, that was no problem. His fees were 'affordable' and less than other lawyers. I will use Mike Davey in the future if I need a lawyer!

I'd recommend Mike Davey to anyone pursuing bankruptcy.
At our first meeting, Mike was friendly and approachable and offered his help at a reasonable price. Once I was ready to move forward, Mike was exact about what I needed to provide and why it was necessary. Always easy to get in touch with via email and phone, Mike was also accommodating with his schedule whenever we had to meet in person. Although my situation was complex and required a significant amount of research and calculation, Mike's explanations were always easy to understand and his advice clearly outlined my choices and their possible consequences. That -- along with his obvious commitment to do right by me while still keeping things in perspective -- made it relatively easy to make a decision regarding the direction of my case. And once it was made, Mike was thorough, accurate, and efficient in filing and preparing me for my Creditors Meeting.
Mike's plainly a good person willing and able to work hard for the good of his client. You never want a bankruptcy lawyer, but if you need one, Mike's a great one to have.

I hired Mr. Davey to assist us with purchasing my fathers house. We didn't want to use a real estate agent because they charge 3-7% of the sale of the home. Mr. Davey helped us with the whole process from A to Z. He helped save us thousands of dollars and I don't believe we could have done it on our own. I would highly recommend hiring Mr. Davey.

Mr. Davey handled my will, power of attorney, living will, and associated estate planning documents. In the process, he asked questions and made suggestions to address possible situations which would never have occurred to me. He is so efficient that, much later, he found a very minor typo, notified me, and corrected it. Prior to consulting Mr. Davey, I had used an online will program. Mr Davey proved to me, without a doubt, that hiring a diligent attorney is well worth the expense.

If you're seeking legal advice from a no-nonsense, practical and thorough attorney, talk to Mike. I refer cases to Mike on a regular basis because I know those people will receive top-notch representation at reasonable price. Mike isn't just stealing language from other wills. Mike is crafting documents that meet and exceed your expectations. If you need a will drafted, an estate planned or something that conveys your needs in times of crisis, your first stop should be the Law Office of Mike Davey.

Michael was referred to me via my realtor during a short sale/bankruptcy process. His knowledgeable, professional approach made manageable a multi-layered, lengthy process. With a focus on the big picture, he always made time for me to ask questions and clearly explained the pros and cons of each option, then let me make my own decisions. He earned my trust through prompt updates, tenacious follow up with my mortgage servicer, and brilliant attention to detail. In a time of vulnerability and constantly changing variables, Michael's legal council, and friendly demeanor, put me at ease and positioned me to make the best decisions at every turn. I highly recommend Michael Davey for short sale/bankruptcy solutions.
