About William

Learn William’s areas of practice.

I have represented individuals and businesses as plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal courts as well as various arbitration forums in such diverse areas of law as banking and finance, labor and employment, professional liability, restrictive covenants, sale of goods, securities, trade secrets and trusts and estates.  

I focus my practice, however, on franchise and distribution law with an emphasis on litigation.  I have represented clients in various industries, including food and beverage, preschool and daycare and tax consulting services, from the pre-complaint stage through discovery into trial.

My reported cases include: Naffis v. Tzavaras, 358 Ga. App. 560 (2021); HA&W Capital Partners, LLC et al. v. Bhandari et al., 346 Ga. App. 598 (2018); Legacy Academy v. Doles-Smith Enters., 344 Ga. App. 805 (2018); Federal Express Corp. v. Petlechkov, 2017 WL 6460261 (N.D. Ga. Dec. 18, 2017); ABV Electronics v. Ceton Corp., 2014 WL 12573015 (N.D. Ga. Mar. 25, 2014); Legacy Academy v. JLK, 330 Ga. App. 397 (2014); and J.E. Dunn Constr. Co. v. Griffin, 2012 WL 32403 (W.D. Mo. Jan. 5, 2012).

Another Satisfied Client
Attorney Davis provided me with excellent legal representation in my business related arbitration case, with a high level of integrity, judgement and efficiency. The most important aspect to me was his quick and timely communication, responding to any and all my questions concerning the case. Would I recommend Attorney Davis? No question.

Business Owner (Construction Industry)
Daniel (Dan) Davis is a truly wonderful attorney. Through the years, he has assisted my business in many ways, from minor disputes and letters to a lawsuit. I personally think that he is a brilliant attorney. He pays close attention to our side of the story; he may not talk much right in, but you must believe that he is thoroughly scanning the problem and thinking in solutions even before you have completed your narrative. Dan is highly intuitive, thorough, honest, dependable, reliable, and trustworthy. His documents are beautifully crafted, straight to the point, and no non-sense; his response letters are incredible, borderline memorable. A hard worker attorney, also, a man of honor, dignity, decency and values.

Gets Results!!
My husband & I were victims of construction fraud. It was a very complex and long journey, but Dan Davis kept us informed, updated, and counseled us at every turn. Everything happened as he said it would so we had no surprises & felt prepared for each judicial decision. He is cost conscious & gets the job done! It’s refreshing to work with someone who is both aggressive on your behalf while maintaining ethical soundness. Without reservation, I highly recommend Mr. Davis!

Thanks Dan.

Protecting rights of small business owners . . .
I hired Dan Davis to protect my rights as a female small business owner when a former client sued my companies AND me personally! It was a long, grueling, and drawn out process but Dan kept me informed every step of the way with in-person meetings, telephone calls, text messages and emails. I appreciated his knack for explaining very complicated corporate law in laymen’s terms without being arrogant or condescending. Unfortunately, my case went to a jury trial. Dan was extremely well-prepared, confident, and quick-thinking especially when the opposing attorneys tried to keep the jury from hearing key evidence. Best of all – we WON!!

Can't say enough great things
Dan is the kind of attorney that you hope to hire. He is extremely knowledgeable about civil law and a talented litigator. As one of the few I found that work in online defamation and social media harassment, he took the time to research my case and apply the law so that it protected me and my family. I recommend him highly.

Dan Davis , More than just our attorney
I have the sincerest gratitude for all of Dan’s hard work on behalf of my husband and I. Over the past four plus years, he has displayed obvious expertise, detailed preparation, and tremendous tenacity. Watching Dan in the courtroom gave me a whole new respect and admiration for the legal profession. Dan has also been a support system by always being available when needed (via phone and/or email). It is obvious in watching Dan that his firm is the epitome of a high powered, top notch “Legal Team”!!! I would recommend Dan to all of my family, friends, and colleagues needing legal services.

Extremely satisfied client
The professionalism and expertise of Dan Davis is unparalleled. Not only did he work to have my case completed in a timely manner, I was extremely pleased with the outcome. I especially appreciated the way Dan kept me abreast of developments as the case progressed. He effectively communicated with me throughout the entire process and delivered excellent results. Other attorneys and the judge even commented on how well Dan had done on my behalf. I will definitely be engaging the legal services of Dan in the future and enthusiastically recommend he and his firm.

Excellent lawyer
I enjoyed working with Dan Davis for my case. He responded and wanted to take my case after posing my case on ask a lawyer .com which other lawyers that I asked didn't. He was very informative, patient, and kept me in the loop on everything going on and what could potentially happen later if I did this or did that.

Dan Davis wins another one!!
I found Dan to extremely professional and efficient and he went out of his way to build a trusting relationship with me that was based on constant, honest and open communication. Dan left no stone unturned during the discovery phase of our trial and at the end of the day knew more about my business than me!! He is truly dedicated not only to his profession but also to his clients. I hope that I never have another need for an attorney with Dan's qualifications but if I do I will call him in a heartbeat. I highly recommend Dan to anyone who needs an attorney in his area if speciality.
