Excellent attorney- highly recommend!
My family hired Bob for a very serious, egregious case that was filed against a family member. He managed the process from start to finish with deliberate and effective steps. The outcome was in our favor, and we could not be more grateful to Bob for his kindness and expertise. Highly recommend!!

Outstanding
I can't praise Robert C. Davis enough. He did such an outstanding job for my daughter when hired for her criminal case that we again hired him to handle her foreclosure, divorce, child dependency, and child support cases. He saved her from going to prison, losing her home, got her children back, and made her support payments manageable. Highly recommend him!

Straightforward and thorough
I hired Mr. Davis at a very difficult time in my life for a divorce. I came into his office in tears and every step of the way he made it a very personal and kind consultation, assuring me he was there to help. It was a long process as divorce often can be, and though I sent him endless emails asking for updates, he was professional with his replies. So much so that I also hired him in a personal injury case when I was in a bad accident. Hes a tough gentleman and doesnt mince words. I appreciate that and all his help. Absolutely recomend.

Great lawyer who gets great results
I've used Mr. Davis's services on more than 1 occasion and would hire anyone else. When I have a question I have always gotten through and had my questions answered right away. This is something is extremely important to me in a lawyer. He will work for you and get you the best outcome. Infact, he just got my dui charge dropped. If I ever find myself in trouble again (lets hope not) Mr. Davis is my first call.

My Attorney for Life
Highly recommended as he has represented my family for the last 10 years in almost every aspect. He originally started handling traffic tickets for me, then I had a DUI charge and some civil collection issues, and ultimately a divorce case and visitation case. I have gone to him nearly a dozen times and every time he has been there for me and helped me thru the toughest times. He doesn't B.S. me and tells me straight up the way it is and what the cost is up front. He has worked with me and done some payment schedules on a case by case basis too.

Excellent Legal Guidance!
My wife and I were very confused about the proper steps to take when our teenage son ran into legal problems. Mr Robert Davis listened empathetically and gave us sound legal advice that led to a positive outcome for our son. Mr. Davis is intelligent, professional and very good to work with when a person is facing legal problems.

Custody Comfort at its Finest!
Mr. Davis called me tonight for a consultation. I was rude to him when I answered the phone because I didn't know who was calling. He quickly calmed me down, introduced himself, and got right to the point. We went over MULTIPLE scenarios regarding what could happen to my child should something happen to me, and I feel so much better knowing that I've covered all my bases and my child will be well taken care of, even if I am rendered unable to control that myself. I feel like we spoke on a personal level; not just a lawyer talking to a potential paying client. He wasn't concerned with my money; he was genuinely concerned with what I needed to do to ensure the safety and well-being of my children in the future while having an unaddressed custody issue. It was as if I was talking to a very well educated friend who was giving me good advice. I am so glad that he called, and I will now keep his number with me at all times. I wouldn't even consider calling anyone else should I need ANYTHING in the future when it comes to legal matters. He won me over completely in a matter of 30 minutes. It means a lot for a stranger to, not only talk to you like a friend, but to comfort you when it comes to your children, and arm you with the tools you need to be confident, educated, and prepared when it comes to these sensitive matters. I will recommend him to anyone and everyone, and I would never even consider hiring anyone else.

Exceptional Lawyer
Mr. Davis has handled a few things for my family and myself over the years, he is very straight and to the point, handles your case with the best of care, and reasonably priced. I refer everyone I know in need of a lawyer to him.

I'm a over the road truck driver and was recently charged while at home in my personal vehicle. The charge could have ended my career. But with the help of Mr. Davis and his staff I got my life back. Thank you Mr. Davis.

Great Trial Attorney
He has represented me in various family law matters. He has the experience and can think on his feet. He is very honest and direct as to your chances. He does not run up an unnecessary bill nor fail to prosecute the case. Excellent experience. As an attorney myself, I recognize good representation.

very satisfied
I hired Mr. Davis for a child custody case. He was very understanding to my worries/issues. I was always kept informed about the happenings in my case. Before the big day came, we had a meeting to discuss what was going to happen and he made me feel comfortable with the matter. We went to court and I could not have asked for a better outcome. Since then I have referred him to my friends and they are also satisfied. I would highly recommend.

win at the finish line
As a commercial licensed driver your career can be threatened daily by uncertainties and turn it into a nightmare or end it. When that day happened to me, Mr. Davis worked with me getting all the facts and his exceptional knowledge with the law helped to prove my case. As a result, the case was dismissed and I had won. Mr. Davis is a very nice and compassionate man who also gets to the facts and is very thorough, especially when it comes time for questioning. Thank you Mr Davis for a fantastic job. I will highly recommend you.

poor communication skills
He would blame me when he couldn't get a hold of me ...... I Never missed a phone call , text or email (I know because I check multiple times) And he claims he also couldn't get ahold of my ex husband which he did not miss any phone calls or emails either. Canceled our court date (that would finalize our divorce ) without our knowledge ...we didn't know when our court date was and we're told to wait on his call ....I called him to confront him and nothing but lies spewed out of his mouth ...rude hateful and I fired him. It's sad when I can comunicate with my ex easier then I can communicate with my own lawyer ...also he blamed his actions on lack of payment ....I've paid over half of his money and was told my ex would be paying the other Avoid this man and his rude secretary

Rude with no communication
He starts out as though he is compassionate and then a few months later you learn the real Bob. He will tell you what you wish to hear and then you don't hear from him. If you call his office his secretary Kim is extremely rude and hateful. I thought this was just her but over the course of dealing with Bob for almost 2 years I have learned he is more rude than her. He won't call you back and when you've left multiple messages he responds as though you are interupting his life! I divorced a narcisisst and found the exact same thing in a lawyer. He didn't fight back at any of the hearings we had. I went to him cause he seemed knowledgeable the law. He even had incorrect information at the hearing!! He's extremely incompetent!! My ex hasn't paid myself or Bob and yet he won't file contempt charges. I spoke with him on Mar. 12, 2019 and it is now April1, 2019 and I've heard nothing from him. This isn't unusual. He will go months without any communication! Do yourself a favor and find a lawyer that fights for you and not just about getting his money!!

Beware Does Not Work 4 u paid 4 nothing
At first you will feel he is, kind, nice and great person. He tells you what you want hear and us very personal. Bet after you sign the agreement you will find he does not do anything 4 u he said he woukd and he will make you feel like it's your fault and give you excuses. If you don't know about the law you will believe him and that's what he does. I paid all my money owed and he did nothing. Unless, you like to wait a long long long time and spend money and end up paying someone else .....use someone else.
