Knowledgeable and talented attorney!!
Christopher Davis and his team are unsurpassed for representing their clients’ interests, from start to finish. I felt that my case was of utmost importance to Mr. Davis. I really appreciated Mr. Davis’ excellent handling of my case. Honestly, Mr. Davis and his team turned my nightmare into a very positive experience. His firm represented my employment case against my former employer. I would recommend this attorney with the highest ratings.

Excellent Attorney
Chris willingly took my case from the get go when my former employer tried to screw me over. He was persistent and straight forward. He got me a settlement quickly. He is very easy to work with as he makes his clients priority.

Smart & Experienced Employment Lawyer
I consulted with Chris to negotiate a severance package with my employer. He was smart, sympathetic, and extremely savvy. I felt like I was in good hands as he reviewed my case for potential legal claims. Chris is also knowledgeable about the way severance negotiations play out in different industries, so he was able to give me very concrete and relevant advice. Chris was straightforward and trustworthy, and I strongly recommend him as a lawyer.

Excellent attorney
I was referred to Chris by a friend who is also an attorney and knew him through work. I owe my friend a favor because from our first call to execution of the settlement agreement, Chris was excellent. My case was very fact-specific and Chris and his staff took the time to ensure they had the necessary understanding to effectively represent me. I expected a knockdown, drag-out fight but Chris's approach resulted in a fairly quick and painless resolution that was favorable to me. I could not recommend him more highly.

Perseverence +++++
Chris let the client who wouldn't pay me know from day one they were not going to get away with it. He kept the pressure on them and had them rocked back on their heels playing defense. He resolved my issue quickly and in my favor. With me, he was clear, professional, strategic and respectful. With the bad guys, he was their nightmare. He had a great strategy that used my fees to the best effect, kept costs down, and expedited the solution.

great advice and personable lawyer
Chris helped me understand better the ins and outs of my separation agreement; he took the time to review it carefully and shared his expertise and experience to help me determine the best course of action. He outlined various options without pressuring me into one or the other

Chris Davis and his staff worked really hard for me and to them I will be forever greatful , I had a labor law suit against a company that was not following labor laws , I brought my case to Chris and Rachel and they worked a true miracle. Thank you to you and your staff for your amazing efforts , I recommend them.

I am not just a case number , I am a person that needed help.
Chris was very professional and he was attentive to my needs. He handled my case as if it was his own and he made sure everything was done correctly. He is very smart and caring about his clients. I did not have and easy case against the City of New York but he was able to make them understand what they did wrong and you just can not toss people aside who happen to become ill. I thank him for everything that he has done.

An Attorney who is Honest and Results Driven
I can only say that Mr. Davis was very responsive and used every tool at his disposal (e-mail, staff, phone, etc) to keep me in the loop at every step in the process. Further if I were concerned or had questions, he took the time to explain the situation to me in lay-man's terms. I can say that without Mr. Davis, I would have been lost in a system filled with procedural practices of which I was not privvy to. Overall an excellent job! I would highly recommend him.
