God Sent Angel
Mrs. Davis has met our expectations of excellency and beyond. Me and my Son was facing out of fear long term probation. Mrs. Davis had done something no one else could. She transferred our case to another state so we may re-join with family and friends. If you do not hire her, you would be doing you and your family an injustice. Thank God we did. She is simply amazing, with outstanding results.

Phenomenal
Ms. Davis is truely exceptional! She goes above and beyond to represent you not only as a client but as if you were her family. She has helped me in so many ways and helped me get out of a very violent physical relationship. I cannot thank her enough for saving my life and also allowing me and my children a fresh start at a new beginning. She is truely dedicated to her cases and she really gets to know you as a person and not only as a client. She is wonderful and i would reccommend her to anyone who is looking for a 5 star Attorney. She is amazing! Thank you for representing me Ms.Davis!

Reduced debt thanks to Ms. Davis
Last year I had alot of items in collections. I wanted to move towards owning my very first home. Due to the bad decisions I made earlier in life I couldn't move forward because of my debt affecting my credit score. Ms. Davis fought with the creditors and reduced my debt by 75% in 9 months. 12 months ago my credit score was a 520. Now it is a 752 thanks to her. I will forever be grateful for this fresh start. I thank God for the opportunity she gave me and it's changed my life. I just closed on my very first home! I highly recommend her for a new beginning.

"Attorney Davis and I attended law school together in Lansing, Michigan. During that time, I had an opportunity to see her passion for the law, especially criminal law. There was no doubt in my mind that she would become one of the top criminal defense attorneys. She is extremely thoughtful, knowledgeable, compassionate, and honest. These attributes are vital for a criminal defense attorney. I highly recommend her legal services based on my personal knowledge of her!"
