Professional and thorough divorce settlement
I hired Mr. Davidson to assist with a divorce with 50/50 co-parenting. The opposing side was aggressive and fought every point, but Kevin stayed calm and maintained a reasonable position which ultimately prevailed. I found him knowledgeable and a consummate professional, polished and prepared. Much of the $7k cost came from dealing with the opposing counsel's unnecessary contention, but my costs were still less than 60% of my ex's. Though we settled just before court, had we taken it all the way, I would have felt confident with Kevin's handling of my case. I would absolutely hire him again if needed. I'm very glad to have the whole process behind me and get on with life.

Amazing. Efficient. Effective.
I have been a long-time client of Attorney Kevin Davidson and I have never been disappointed. Kevin keeps it real. No false promises of results and always maintains professionalism. I truly enjoy working with him when the need arises. He is always prepared and ready for hearings. My tough cases were handled with extreme care and everything always went smoothly. I couldn’t recommend a better attorney. The quality you need is tied up right here in an efficient package. Thank you Kevin!

Outstanding Service
Kevin helped my son win custody of his daughter. Our first outlook appeared grim and our chances looked slim until Kevin took the case. He assured us that He could provide us with a favorable outcome, and He did.

Look no further. You found him. Best attorney in town.
Last year I was highly emotional and a rather irrational after suddenly being abandoned by my wife and served with a suprise divorce. Being a non-attorney, I was scared and very intimidated by all of it. It was scary, I was in a sheer panic, and I did not know what I was up against. But, then I met Kevin Davidson. Kevin and his team were a blessing to me beyond measure. Kevin treated me like a human being from the moment we first spoke, onward. Never once did his professionalism waver, even in spite of me at times. Like that of a veteran heart surgeon who had served on the front lines of this particularly gruesome battlefield many times before, he was able to cut right to the core of my case with precision. Though the details of my case were horrific to bear, it was truly impressive to see Kevin work with such skill and professional demeanor. Kevin could see right through the opposition's BS, and even my own where applicable. He saw the truth of the matter. Kevin's legal knowledge is supreme, his professionalism is to be admired, and his kindness is unexpectedly authentic. In the end, Kevin and his team won my case by a landslide. To be clear in lay-terms: I got everything, and she got humbled! Look no further. You found him. Best attorney in town.

Best experience with an attorney
I went through a very difficult divorce and although at the time I felt like I got the best outcome possible, the experience left me very skeptical about attorneys. Through the years after, I had consulted with several attorneys due to needing to have changed made to my decree. Until I met with Kevin, I kept my skepticism of attorneys based on my past experiences. This time was very different. Kevin listened to everything I had been through, offered advice and informed me of all my options with realistic expectations and potential outcomes. He didn’t just tell me what he thought I wanted to hear in hopes of running up his billable hours. I hired Kevin and was able to accomplish my goals at the time. I will be hiring Kevin again, should the need ever arise and I’m fairly confident it will.

Exceptional/Confident/Approachable
If you are here at avvo reading Kevin reviews. Please don’t look for any other attorney and go with Kevin. He provided me great help during my process. During my difficult time, Kevin was always approachable and responded very quickly. He will not charge you crazy and will only charge for what is needed. So believe me, you will be in safe hands where you can trust Kevin on your case. He is very professional and always gives you spot on advice. Good luck Kevin and thank you for all the help.

A pleasure to work with
Kevin got the job done for me. I don't have a great history of attorneys performing up to the expectations they set and I'm sure that prejudice makes it tough to work with me but Kevin did live up to those expectations and helped me out of a tough spot. Thank you for your help Mr. Davidson!

Great Lawyer, very patient and wants the best for you.
Kevin, was my attorney beginning May 2014 until just recently. I had been fighting a marriage that seemed as if it would never end, I had left in 2010. Kevin and I had a consultant and he agreed to take on the case. The case was one with lots of curve balls thrown at him. Every time I needed Kevin he was there, responded quickly to emails or phone calls. There were a few times that immediate hearings were needed and Kevin was quick about doing so. Kevin fought beside me in a way that you want your attorney there for you. Kevin was truly a blessing for me during this time, he was someone who listened and believed me and was able to convey what I needed in the court room. I would recommend Kevin to anyone in need of a family attorney.

I hired Mr. Davidson earlier this year on a civil case that we easily defended. This case was won due to the attention to detail that Mr. Davidson has when looking at the facts. Honestly, Mr. Davidson is the epitome of what a GREAT lawyer is.

Divorce Case/Child Support Case
Kevin assisted me with my divorce case with 3 children. I had previously had 2 prior attorney's who didn't help much. As soon as I hired Kevin he jumped right in and was handling my case. We started in January 2015 and the divorce was finalized in September 2015. I have now hired him for child support enforcement as of January 2016, and I just know he will handle my case as he did the prior one. He is very understanding and explains in detail any concerns you may have. He also does well with communicating via email, office and even cell phone. I loved that about him! He's great. After this case god forbid I need him again lol but if I do I will definitely call on him for help. Thank you Kevin you have been a great help.

Honest & Upfront
In the course of seeking legal help, I touched base with Kevin and, within two hours, we were speaking on the phone about the basics of my issue. In the 30 minute conversation, he suggested that I take a different course of action that would not allow me to utilize his services. Though I understand this is probably in his best interest as well as mine, I appreciated the forthrightness and honesty of his recommendation. If I had any other issues in the DFW area, I would definitely reach out to him.
