    • I do not recommend Steven Davis.
    • I hired Steven 1-3 years ago.
    • Steven handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I hired Steven R. Davis to file a simple injunction that would protect my private property. It was a simple case of a matter of law - easements. When forced to go to court, he missed the point and lost the case. In the process, he was slow to act, did not return my phone calls, showed no initiative, and failed to stress the basic points of the case.

      Yes, Heidi lost her case. That's alway a risk when you go to court. It turned out, unbeknownst to Heidi or me when she hired me, that the county had an easement which allowed it to construct a street sign in Heidi's front yard at her neighbor's reqeust. That's why she lost the case.

      Suffice it to say I disagree with the rest of her comment. I make every effort to represent my clients diligently and competently.

      This client's neighbor had an easement through the client's property. Perhaps Heidi should have sought legal advice before she purchased land that had an easement running through it. The neighbor decided to have a street sign erected marking the easement. The neighbor was a long time resident of the community and was friends with the county judge and county road superintendent. In other words, the neighbor was politically well connected, and Heidi wasn't. The client writing this review of my services was from another State.

      The County Judge found the road in front of Heidi's property to be a County road, even though it was no so indicated on any survey and even though Heidi never received any notice from the County that it was seeking to make the road a County Road. I believe the judge was wrong, but he is the judge, and he gets to make those decisions.

      As to my supposed lack of initiative, several weeks before trial I made a 5 hour round trip to view the easement in question, and before I returned to my office I reviewed records concerning this property at the County Courthouse for another hour. I spoke to three witnessses and had them subpoenaed to court.

      If a lawyer loses a case, many clients think it's the lawyer's fault. I am willing to admit when I make mistakes, but I gave this client my best effort, and the Court ruled against her.
