After we were hit by a drunk driver in New Mexico, the insurance company began trying to take advantage of us. We knew we had to find a lawyer, but we didn’t know where to start. We are very glad we got a recommendation to call Ben Davis.
Ben is an extremely good personal injury lawyer. We had a complicated case, and Ben was able to help us clearly understand our rights and the risks of litigation. When we decided to proceed, he proved to be a true advocate for our interests—forcing the insurance company to take their obligations to us seriously. He never pressured us to settle, but when it came time to mediate our case, Ben showed amazing skill as a negotiator, overcoming obstacle after obstacle with the kind of skill and instinct you only find in seasoned attorneys.
Ben’s advocacy helped us close the chapter on an horrifying and traumatizing experience in our life so we could move forward. After the crash, the last thing we wanted was a lawsuit, but when it came, we could not have been more happy to have had Ben be the one to help us through it. We highly recommend his services.
We'd prefer to remain anonymous, but be assured these are our candid opinions, and we have no relationship with Ben or his law firm. We are just grateful for all his hard work.
After several bad encounters with lawyers and courts I had a legal malpractice case and a fear of lawyers. Ben Davis was wonderful. He went above and beyond for me. He was wonderful to work with and made me feel very comfortable. I can highly recommend him.
I was the driver in a car crash in Albuquerque in December of 2012. The other driver, who ran a red light and was 100% at fault, had minimal insurance and no assets. My wife was quite badly injured and spent 8 days in the hospital. We hired Ben Davis, an attorney in Albuquerque, to represent us in paying our bills and recovering what we could from insurance (both ours and the other driver’s insurance).
We clearly could not have handled this ourselves. Reasonable settlements with the insurance companies required quite a detailed knowledge of the law and insurance practices in three jurisdictions (New Mexico, where the crash happened; Washington DC, where we were living at the time; and California, where we now live). Beyond that, they required quite a lot of experience with what a reasonable settlement should look like and how to secure such a settlement. Because our own insurance company originally offered us a very low settlement, we even had to sue them. Ben Davis represented us in that suit and in the subsequent negotiations with our insurance company’s lawyer, and did obtain an appropriate settlement for us.
Ben Davis handled all of this with consummate professionalism and expertise. He knew a lot about the law, and had a lot of previous experience with cases like ours. When he didn’t know a particular wrinkle, he researched it carefully. He was on top of the case from beginning to end, answering our inquiries promptly, keeping us informed, meeting required deadlines, dealing with medical care providers and the insurance companies, and in general, just taking the whole mess off our hands. My wife is a lawyer, a litigator actually, and she was very favorably impressed with his knowledge, his crafting of documents (including the lawsuit), and his negotiation skills.
If you’re ever in a spot like we found ourselves in, Ben Davis is the one you should turn to. He has our highest recommendation.
For the past two years, I have been privileged to have Ben Davis as co-council on my medical malpractice suit. He and his wonderful assistant, Jennifer Byers, worked many, many hours beyond the call of mere duty on my case. Unfortunately, we did not win the first round of the case, but are going forward with an appeal, which means many more hours of hard work.
When I didn't understand the law, Ben took the time to explain in everyday language what the legal terminology meant. He realizes that even though he has much experience and several cases going at a time, my case was the only case I had to stew about. He and Jennifer did a quite a bit of handholding as my case progressed, which I deeply appreciated.
Additionally, as my trial date moved closer, Ben called in other attorney friends with more or different malpractice experience to look at and help with my case. In short, I feel like Ben and his firm and colleagues did everything they could to bring my case to trial.
I highly recommend Ben and his wonderful staff.
Ben did a fantastic job with my case. He kept me informed and involved throughout. He was personally concerned for my well-being and seeking justice on my behalf. I highly recommend Mr. Davis to anyone who needs a knowledgeable, competent and trustworthy attorney.
Mr. Davis is an amazing attorney. He was able to help my family receive compensation for a matter other attorneys wouldn't even touch. I would recommend him to anyone who needs to find some justice. He is always professional yet understanding. He always took the time to explain the court process and help us prepare. Mr. Davis is exceptionally knowledgeable especially in medical related cases. Truly, he is an honest man and I am totally grateful for the services he provided for my family.
Ben Davis is responsible for giving my life back! Through litigation in a malpractice suit against a firm responsible for me going to prison for 34 years. We settled and the District Court couldn't dismiss the truth.... I now am free after 7 long years and I am married to the most wonderful woman. We at least now have life! There will soon be a book telling the story of this case and Ben's work. Thank you Ben Michael & Mary Soutar
Mr. Davis skillfully handled our case from the start. He spared us from having to deal with an unresponsive insurance company and provided expert guidance every step of the way. He and his staff exhibited compassion as well to my wife who was the injured party, and made an unpleasant situation much easier to bear. I couldn’t be more pleased.
I highly recommend Mr. Davis.
I am very fortunate to have Ben Davis on my side. My case has not been settled yet but Ben has been doing everything possible to ensure a positive outcome. His passion and dedication to my case makes me confident that I chose the right lawyer.
Ben did a great job with my case. He was honest through every step, and kept my husband and I informed of new developments as they came up. He is clearly knowledgable, and if he wasn't sure about something he had several experienced resources to draw upon.
I was injured badly after being struck by a truck while riding a bicycle and he understood how to work with us while I recovered. He was also able to refer me to a couple of good health practitioners when I didn't know any in a particular field.
Ben pursued a settlement in my case when it was appropriate, and advised me if proceeding down a particular legal path was not likely to be fruitful.
I think after working with him for a year and a half that I would be comfortable referring anyone to him.
