Employment Matter
Michael Davey's deep knowledge of employment law, combined with his years of experience successfully representing clients, gives him the ability to provide advice and guidance that is factual and straightforward, while also being kind and compassionate. Michael was always prepared for our meetings, provided updates and explanations each step of the way, and responded to my concerns in a timely manner. My employment issue came about because I took a stand for something I believed in, so it was a tremendous relief to find a lawyer who understood and supported the choices I made. Michael was professional and courteous in the way he represented me but was also assertive and uncompromising when the situation warranted it. I am very pleased with how my case was resolved and very thankful for the work that Michael did to help me obtain a successful outcome. If I have any other legal issues in the future, Michael will be my first call. I highly recommend him!

Employment Issue
While being ever the professional, Mike is always wise in advice. I took a stand for Mental Illness in the work force, and he stood behind me all the way! I come from a family of lawyers (3 out of 4 siblings) so attoneys I know well! He should be a judge, he has the right stuff!! Beth B

Best Decision I Ever Made For My Discrimination Lawsuit
I could not be happier with the experience I had with Michael Davey. He walked me through the process of my discrimination suit step by step and held my hand the whole time. I had no prior experience with anything like this and he answered every one of my questions without all the fancy legal jargon. He was always accessible to me whenever I had concerns or thought of something that could be useful. From our first meeting to the last hearing, he was absolutely wonderful. He helped me through an awful experience with my previous employer and fought for me and what I deserved to the end. He talked me through every aspect in a way that was comfortable and like talking to an old friend. If I had to do the entire lawsuit over again, I would go with Michael Davey.

Excellent
This is an ongoing case and the Attorney Michael Davey III has been very excellent and responsive, I get updates about the status on the case every week . This is a wage theft case and I look forward to get my money back. The establishment has for many years defrauded employees and creditors .

Very Professional and Personable
I had an employment issue, and Mr. Davey handled my case very professionally. He addressed all my questions and concerns and was always available to talk. His knowledge of the information surrounding my case was excellent, and he consistently provided me with a thorough explanation of everything pertaining to my case, every step of the way. I would feel very confident with his representation should I have any future matter, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for strong, quality representation.

The only one who cared
I was having a legal issue involving my job and sought the advice of a few lawyers. Despite the strong amount of evidence I had in my favor no lawyer would bother with me or wanted a large lump sum before we talked about how to proceed. I felt like giving up until a co-worker strongly recommended Mr. Davey to me. I am so glad I went! My case was handled quickly, professionally and my issue was resolved in a matter of a few weeks. Mr. Davey kept in contact with me throughout the whole ordeal and made sure I had the latest updates. If anyone is ever having any legal trouble I will be handing them Mr. Davey's business card.

Thrown off my Motorcycle after being hit from behind.
Never having been in a serious accident before, I was reluctant to contact a Lawyer. Michael put me at ease right away.He was never too busy to answer my questions or return an e-mail. He explained how things worked and what I could expect. He seemed concerned about my well being and assured me I would be fine. I would hope I never need the services of a Law Firm again but should I, I would recommend both the Law Firm and Michael. On a side note, Michael's staff was very helpful as well.
