Mr. Davis has practiced extensively in the areas of family and domestic relations law since 2009.  A graduate of the University of Mississippi School of Law, Will chose to focus his practice on family law following his enrollment in a Guardian ad Litem clinic where he was sworn in to practice as a third year law student. Will works to develop meaningful relationships with his clients and opposing counsel, and he believes that a calm and reasonable approach to the practice of law is essential to successful resolution of domestic cases. Will recognizes that LGBT clients often face unique challenges in family law related issues, and Will brings many years of experience to the firm in representing LGBT family law clients – both before and after the landmark Obergefell marriage decision.

Prior to attending law school, Will earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from the University of Georgia, and he tries to get back to Athens and Oxford as regularly as he can to cheer on the Bulldogs and the Rebels.

A native and resident of Cobb County, Will has been an active member of the State Bar of Georgia since 2009 and is a member of the State Bar’s Family Law Section. Will currently serves as the President-Elect for the State Bar of Georgia’s Young Lawyers Division (YLD) and is a member of the State Bar’s Executive Committee and Disciplinary Board.  Will is also a member of the Atlanta Bar Association, the Cobb County Bar Association, the Lawyers Club of Atlanta, and the Stonewall Bar Association of Georgia.

While in law school, Will served as trial advocacy chairperson for the Ole Miss Law Moot Court Board and was a member of the Pace Law School National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition team.  In his free time, Will enjoys traveling, college football, and is a proud participant in the Atlanta Bard Show – a musical performed by local lawyers and judges as a fundraiser for the Atlanta Bar Foundation.

Will Davis is an Ace!
Will Davis was an absolute ACE in defending me through absurd and relentless claims in a custody case I was blindsided by. Not only did Will ensure that I won the case, it was who Will was as a person that helped me through this case, more than he likely ever knew. I felt very protected by him, he always had my back at every move, and through this highly emotional time for me, he was calm & highly confident with every move we were going to make next. I realized I never needed to worry because he wasn't worried. I cannot thank Will enough for getting me through this case, for the support & protection I felt throughout, and of course for winning. I cannot recommend him enough!

Saved my Life!
As dramatic as the title is, Mr. Davis did just that. I was in the divorce of hell! Not to mention a custody battle that included IVF. The question was if the baby that I carried via RIVF( carried wife’s egg) was legally mine. As the state of Georgia does not legitimate children born of IVF, I was told that I was a biological stranger to my children. Like the child that was cut out of my uterus could be taken away from me as well as our son that was born a month before marriage. My life was literally being ripped apart! Mr. Davis did not offer any promises but assured me that we would take this thing head on. He did just that I was granted 50/50 custody to both of my children and child support. He’s a godsend! I’m forever grateful. Not to mention he always answered all of my frantic calls, emails, and text messages. Thank you again!

Compassionate, Knowledgeable, Strategic, Critical-Thinking, and Respectful Attorney
Will was my attorney in divorce litigation that took a year to resolve due to the contentious nature of my former spouse and his attorney. Will supported me through the entire process with sound advice, compassion, in-depth knowledge of the legal system and the individuals involved in our case, and an impeccable attention to detail. I knew in every step of the process that Will knew the facts of the case, presented the most relevant information to support our stance, and provided emotional support to me during this challenging time. There were very young children involved in my case, and he kept their needs at the forefront of the case. The end result was the right outcome for the kids and for me. I highly recommend Will due to his professionalism, knowledge, composure, approach, and legal strategy. I owe my children's safety and well-being as well as my own to him and the support he gave me during a horrible divorce.

He was very knowledgeable, honest and direct about the process and expected timeline of my case. I highly recommend Will - he is extremely professional and always striving to do the best for his client.

Great experience working family case with Will
Will was exceptional in his communication, preparation, accessibility, and overall working of my family custody case. We had some very unconvinteonal twists in our case, and Will was great about adapting and staying on top of what we needed to do. Will was very collected and reassuring in what was an extremely emotional proceeding, and was in constant communication with me about what was going in. He was extremely knowledgeable about what/when/how we could do and needed to do to exercise every available option to best make our case. Even for being relatively young, it was obvious he already had a great rapport with the judges and courtroom personnel that we worked with, which is extremely important. The thing I appreciate the most about working with Will was his blatant honesty towards me from beginning to end, not telling me what I wanted to hear or selling me a "bag of goods," but always presenting me the facts and his experience-based guidance and opinions in an upfront manor. I would highly recommend Will to anyone beginning a legal endeavor, especially involving a family dispute or issue.

Excellent support for my case
Will was a tremendous help to me when I needed an attorney for my client. I work with the Department of Social Services in Raleigh, NC. The logistics were difficult, with my being out of state, but he was accessible, knowledgeable (when I wasn't familiar with Georgia courts) and went the extra mile to answer questions and communicate information in a timely manner. I was also very impressed with his level of compassion for my client and his desire to meet her needs with her best interests in mind. I would recommend his services to anyone in the Atlanta metro area. He's the best!

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I met Will Davis through a leadership program through the State Bar of Georgia, and was immediately impressed by his level of dedication to the profession. Following that leadership program, we have remained in touch, and occasionally "talk shop." In those conversations, it is exceedingly clear that Mr. Davis is committed to his clients, and achieving efficient results for them. Not only is he a great lawyer, he's a great person. I would readily recommend him (and indeed, I have) for those seeking counsel in Cobb County."
