"Billie" Davie was hired to challenge a foreclosure on my Mothers home caused by another family member and not only did he win the case resulting in the foreclosure being settled he also saved my Mother and additional 35K that would have been lost. I Highly recommend Billie Davie for any litigation or foreclosure case you might have as he is thorough and complete in his casework and preparation and I was impressed with his performance during the trial associated with our case. I would also like to thank his Legal Assistant Hope for her professionalism and prompt attention to any requests I submitted during our year long process. Thank you Billie and my Mother thanks you as well.

I contacted Mr. Davie (Billy) because I had completed a $24,000 home repair project and the customer was refusing to pay the remaining $13,000. Additionally, the customer would not give a reason for the refusal to pay and had cut off all commination. I was charged $250 for the initial consultation; were Mr. Davie examined my construction contract and project correspondence. We discussed my rights under Florida’s Lien Law and decided that if a settlement could not be reached he should file to enforce the Lien. We established a set of objectives that he felt he could achieve for a fee of $2,500 (10 hours at his hourly billing rate of $250/hour) which I paid. He contacted the customer in an attempt to reach a settlement and was rebuffed. He then sent a letter to the customer stating the merits of my complaint. This also produced no results. At this point he contacted the attorney for the customer. He related to me that the attorney was willing to authorize a settlement to avoid the Lien exercised. The purported settlement never materialized.
While all of the above was proceeding it was becoming increasingly difficult to contact Mr. Davie. I sent him many emails requesting feedback on his progress and reminding him that he needed to make sure that my Lien rights were protected. In more than one email I related my feeling that the customer was trying to runout the clock on my Lien rights.
In January I had become so frustrated with his lack of communication that I send him an email expressing my profound disappointed in his performance. I reminded him that none of the objectives that were set had been accomplished and that I was being forced to seek new representation.
When I spoke with another attorney, he related that my Lien rights had expired. Because of Mr. Davie’s failure to protect my Lien rights I am not only out his $2,500 fee but I have also lost the opportunity to collect the $13,000 that I hired him to recover. From my point of view, Mr. Davie turned out to be a $15,500 mistake.

I WAS REFERRED TO MR. DAVIE BY A FRIEND WHO HAD A FAMILY PROBATE ISSUE THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN ANY ATTORNEY'S NIGHTMARE. MR. DAVIE INHERITED THE PROBLEM BECAUSE OF LEGAL ISSUES INVOLVING ANOTHER ATTORNEY. MY FRIEND WENT THROUGH THE WORST EXPERIENCE IN HIS LIFE AND IT STILL WASN'T RESOLVED UNTIL MR. DAVIE STEPPED ABOARD. HE CALMED DOWN MY FRIEND; GAVE HIM THE BEST LEGAL ADVISE AND HANDLED THE MOST GOD AWFUL CASE IN A PROFESSIONAL MANNER AND HIS KNOWLEDGE OF THE LAW WAS UNBELIEVABLE BECAUSE OF ALL THE COMPLICATIONS OF THIS CASE. AFTER SEEING THIS "MIRACLE" UNFOLD, I DECIDED TO UTILIZE HIS SKILLS IN A NUMBER OF LEGAL MATTERS AND I WOULD RATE HIM 10 OUT OF 10 ON ALL MATTERS. I URGE ANYONE WHO NEEDS AN ATTORNEY WHO KNOWS THE LAW FRONTWARDS AND BACKWARDS, HAS COMPASSION; KEEPS YOU UPDATED AND HAS A PROFESSIONAL STAFF, TO CALL MR. DAVIE. I HAVE DEALT WITH ATTORNEYS BEFORE AND HAVE FRIENDS AS ATTORNEYS, BUT NO ONE CAN SURPASS THE WAY HE HANDLED ALL MY LEGAL NEEDS.
