Mr. Davi handled my divorce about a year ago. He was knowledgeable and fielded my endless questions day and night. I am grateful for his assistance in securing a favorable outcome for me and my family.

Successful Divorce Settlement
Umberto Davi handled my divorce with professionalism, diligence, and expertise. His guidance put me at ease through a very stressful time. He always called me back promptly and explained the things that I did not understand thoroughly. I am very pleased with the result of the case and highly recommend this attorney.

A Great Lawyer
Umberto helped me out of two situations with skill and aplomb. The judges knew him and were very respectful. I'd use his services again If I hadn't moved 2000 miles away.

He should stick to real estate
He handled my closing and did a good job for me so i decided to hire him when i needed help with my divorce. Bad idea! Umberto makes good first impression but doesn’t offer much help in the process. Generalny focused primarily on himself. I would not recommend him for complex issues like family law. Decent real estate attorney.

How does this guy get a rating of 10?
Umberto Davi was my attorney for a number of months. He did not answer emails, he did not answer questions, he did not do what I asked him to do; IE: file any pleadings. Every time my wife was in contempt of a court order blocking my visitation he would simply reply "Tell the GAL". Mr. Davi would tell me of his expansive experience, and then when I would send him an email with a question, he would reply with we'll have to talk about this. Then on the phone he would tell me why he could not or rather would not file any pleading I asked him to. To this day, my wife continues to interfere with court ordered visitation, I have to pay my new attorney to research the entire past of our custody issues, and to file pleadings that should have been filed over a year ago. I hate to leave such a bad review, but had Mr. Davi done his job he would still be my attorney, and my divorce would have been over 6 months ago, for allot less money. I am sorry to say that I would not recommend Mr. Davi to anybody.
