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.

I was referred to Mr. Davie by another attorney in Clay County, Florida about my Mother's Estate which was being totally mishandled; totally misrepresented; and total lack of knowledge, as well as taking almost a year to resolve after her death, and he had been her attorney for four years prior to her death. This was a very emotional time for me, and Mr. Davie considered my precarious emotional condition, as well as the total mishandling of this case. This is still not resolved; however, my trust has been restored in the judicial system, as well as the fact that each and every attorney is different . He cares about his clients and knows the LAW. I highly recommend him for most cases, as he is very family in most facets of the letter of the law. Compassion, honesty, brilliant attorney = William Davie II.

The word "attorney" in of itself denotes a sort of fear for those of us that have never had to hire one. I have to say that my prayers were answered when I was referred by a friend to contact Mr. Jim Davie and his son William Davie II. It was the best call I have ever made. During a very difficult time in my life that led me to have to hire an attorney to represent me in a real estate issue whereby I was being sued relentlessly, they were extremely knowledgeable in this area.
From the very first call to the zillionth one made in this case that was dragged out for nearly two years, they were cordial, understanding, comforting, and most importantly they became like family. They were straight forward and honest with me from the get go. They didnâ€™t pull any punches and in every single step of the way, they let me know what I could expect and the possibilities of the outcome(s). It certainly helped in knowing they truly cared and were on my side. They werenâ€™t just about getting their clients money. They cared! Even their staff was incredible and always, I mean always, took my calls.
I firmly believe that because of their expertise in this field and their persistence, not to mention their ability to actually litigate a case, I was able to have the law rest on my side. I am extremely happy with this law firm/attorney and would recommend them to any and everyone who found themselves in a similar predicament. Thanks to them-I am free at last!
