Not only an amazing lawyer, one of the most caring people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing and working with.
Amy Davis reached out to me during the most difficult time in my life, when I lost my beloved puppy Berkeley at the hands of an evil human being. She offered her services pro bono because she is that kind, and is a huge animal lover. I honestly do not know how I would have gotten through the legal process that took three years without her by my side guiding me along and answering all of my questions. She cares and works relentlessly for her clients and is someone I not only would hire again, she is someone I am honored to call a great friend.

Highly recommend
Amy Davis represented me through my divorce. I honestly don't know how I would have made it through without her. She always answered my emails, questions, and explained in depth what to expect in certain situations with the court. I would highly recommend her if you are in need of a lawyer.

Fabulous Attorney
I knew Amy Davis on a personal level before she went to law school, so with my husband headed for surgery we decided it was time to update and redo our wills. We chose Amy. They were done promptly, easily and she explained everything as we updated 30 years of changes, We were thrilled when Amy opened Davis Legal Solutions, we thought if we ever need an attorney, here she is. We had no clue that just a few months later, we would need an attorney for our son. Divorces can be an ugly road to go through and this one has been difficult for everyone, however, Amy has led the way for him. She is calm, cool and collected when my son and in turn us, are not. Amy is in contact regularly with our son in what has turned into a very contentious divorce. I believe the end may finally be here after over 18 months with Amy continuing to take the lead in achieving a fair settlement for everyone, including the mental health for the young children involved. I would recommend Davis Legal Solutions again and again.

Child Custody and Parental Rights and Responsibilities
While supporting me as a client, Attorney Davis was knowledgeable about the law, and was able to give me clear direction on what could or could not be done in my child custody case. I had many concerns over the course of the year and I was told to not have high expectations of my requests as many things are in the courts hands and can sometimes be seen as unfair, but was successful in developing a parenting plan and child support order that supports the best interest of my child. Attorney Davis was patient and direct, and I would certainly recommend her for legal support and representation when needed.

Sexest
Very sexest. The mother of my child is keeping my daughter from me. I am a great father and my daughter loves me to death. The mother atmitted to cheated on me and so much more in court. I turned to amy for help and gave me no reason why she would bot take my case. This is all because im a guy who went in her office with my father. She judge me because we are males. I have currently found a lawyer team who is helping fathers. They make sure the child isnt in danger they look into it. Now my daughter and I can have the life we deserve. Thank you Amy for nothing. Ahe is sexest

Hello. I am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with our firm. We represent a variety of individuals regardless of gender, sex, race, sexual orientation, or any other demographics. If we opted not to get involved in a case, it was based on the merits of the case, and not the gender or other demographics of the client.
