    • I recommend James Davis.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Employment / Labor matter.

    Mr. Davis helped me with my slander case. He worked hard for me and offered me several options. I highly recommend him but he is not a discount lawyer.

    • I do not recommend James Davis.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    In 2007, after a few phone call exchanges, James Davis charged $2500 and told me my employer would not negotiate and he needed another $2500 to file EEOC and labor law violations. I decided he had charged too much for 3 weeks worth involving one letter to my employer and one phone to their attorney who refused to negotiate. I filed with the grievance committee and Davis sent me threatening emails that he would sue me and even named the attorney he would use. I'm not sure why he needed an attorney when he was an attorney, but I still have his emails. The grievance committee told me to ask him for my money back. That's the only help I got back then from the Grievance committee. Davis sent me a check for $60 which I never cashed. Obviously, Davis does not want to return money he didn't earn and gets vindictive when a client complaints. I would be extremely concerned if he was hired as an attorney due to his unorthodox methods which could work against his client. He also canceled an appointment with me and rescheduled me at the same time with another client. This makes me think there are other issues with Davis. Davis was only responsive when I tried to get my money back, otherwise, it was difficult to contact him when I believed in him. I then found an attorney who would work on contingency and received $20K from my former employer three months later. That attorney received $7K for his efforts, so Davis missed out on an opportunity because he overcharges and intimidates his clients.

    • James handled my Discrimination matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I hope others do not go through the agony I did in wasting my time and money with this character. Beware of a very poor communicator.

    • I do not recommend James Davis.

    • James handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Mr. Davis is very knowledgable about employment law, problem is, he knew that I was not. He charged me just under $8000 to file my case for me with the EEOC. You can do this yourself people, you do not need an attorney for this. Once that was filed, he said that if I wanted to hire him to move forward with my case, it would be more $. I had no more money, I was out of a job which was why I sought help through him, for wrongful termination.
