Practicing family law is more than a job. It is my calling. I knew from a very young age that I wanted to be an advocate because I wanted to make a positive difference in people's lives. Being a lawyer is an incredible way to achieve this goal.


I grew up in Tehachapi, California, a small mountain town. Aside from the loveliness of its slower pace and serenity, there were many broken families and troubled pasts. I wanted to understand this phenomenon. In 2012, I graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and Social Behavior and a Minor in Criminology, Law and Society. My undergraduate studies in psychology were focused on anger, violence and pathological disorders because I wanted to understand why people behave the way that they do. In 2016, I graduated from California Western School of Law and I was admitted into the California Bar in May 2017. My understanding of human behavior and legal work experience have taught me to turn emotionally packed cases into a passion for justice to those who need it the most. Today, I reside in East Village, San Diego. In my free time, I am a dedicated yogi and impressionist artist. 


I started the Law Office of Brianna S. Davis because I wanted to be the only one accountable to my clients. While there are many perks to hiring a large law firm, it may be better and less stressful to hire me so that I can give you a more personalized experience. I see myself being the strength that my clients need to achieve the best result during life's hardest times. Whether you are going through a divorce, child custody battle, fighting for or against a restraining order, it is no secret that these life-changing situations can be devastating. My job is to alleviate some of that stress by being your voice and advocate that helps put you in a place where you and your family can sleep better at night.

Exceeds expectations
To start, no one knows what to expect going into a dirty divorce. Mrs. Brianna Davis and her team were referred to me by another highly reputable attorney. She is a powerful and well respected counsel but above all that, she is a dynamic human being with feelings. In the midst of emotional chaos, she provided me clarity. When i saw gray, she made sure to spell out the black and white for me. Brianna made sure to dot all i’s and cross every t in an uphill battle that seemed never-ending. Above all, she truly cares. She cared about my well being and the well being of my children in a terrible domestic violence case. I’m not sure what to expect from an attorney as I had never had the need to hire one but what i do know is that Brianna helped me navigate a world of unknowns and she did it right - deliberately and quickly. I am forever grateful to her and her team. She is highly respected in the legal community and her firm approach has proven successful. She is the backbone and spine I never knew I needed.

Superb work / Highly Knowledgable of Domestic Violence Case
Ms. Davis did an amazing job on my case. She is highly knowledgeable in family law and the psychology of perpetrators of domestic violence. Her advice during our three consultations prior to retention were spot on. She didn't sign me on as a client just to make money. Brianna came on to a highly contentious custody case with a lengthy court history. I had been through the wringer with my ex in court while dealing with domestic violence that had occurred towards me and my children. Ms. Davis was able to come in and wrap up a 6 year battle within 6 months of being on the case. Brianna is a tough negotiator who represents both of your best interests. She is very direct, straight forward, and to the point -- she doesn't play games or waste anyone's time. Brianna asked me the tough questions and told me what needed to be heard. She told me what I needed to do to make sure I won my case. After 6 years of living in fear of my ex's constant abuse towards me and my children, I finally feel safe. I have sole custody of my children, and my children are protected from enduring any further trauma. I can not express how much gratitude I have for Brianna. She helped me protect my family and keep them safe going forward.

Ms. Davis was recommended to me by another Lawyer who said, she is the one to help in my matter.
I have absolutely nothing but nice things to say about Ms. Davis. From the initial phone call I knew she was the one to help me. I could hear the passion in her voice and was eager to help right away. I had a custody and move away case that could've easily lasted a lengthy amount of time. With Ms. Davis knowledge, commitment and persistency throughout my case I was awarded legal sole custody and the move away. I will definitely recommend Ms. Davis to anyone and everyone. Thank you for your honesty, loyalty and hard work. You deserve way more stars than 5.

Professional and Exceptional
Ms. Davis represented our family in a complex case that resulted in us gaining custody of our granddaughter and potentially saving her life. We are a law enforcement family with 15 + years of service and have witnessed firsthand the positive and the negative of our legal system. It was essential that we had the best representation available to be successful in this case. Ms. Davis provided the most professional and personal service that one could ever hope for. She is prepared, patient and is an outstanding communicator. All of our questions and concerns were addressed promptly and in a timely manner. It’s very clear that Ms. Davis takes a personal interest in every case and conducts herself as if she were representing family. Her professional and personal attention to her clients are second to none and we hope to maintain a working relationship with her for the foreseeable future.

Trustworthy and Professional
Brianna has been a great pleasure to work with. She is a very sharp attorney, on point and works great, even when under pressure. Our family recently hired Brianna under an extreme tight timeline and she worked with as if we were her only client even though we were not. She promptly returns phone calls and emails even after hours which is hard to find in any profession. The opposing attorney was a real piece of work, but no matter how ugly it got, Brianna maintained composure and never gave in to opposing councils ruthless ways of practicing law. If you are looking for a down to earth attorney that truly cares about their clients, Brianna is the correct choice. She even continued to help us even when the whole ordeal was over. She is truly a great person and wonderful attorney.

Brianna Really Cares for her clients
Brianna is an amazing attorney. She really cares about her clients and puts her all into getting justice and everything they deserve. Brianna helped me out of a bind with a restraining order and I’m so glad I met her. I would recommend Brianna as a family attorney to anyone in the San Diego area. I could not have had a better experience.

Perfect lawyer to get the job done!!!
I was really scared going into a divorce with my ex wife threatening to ruin my life by taking all my assets and property. On top of that, I was extremely sick this year and spent 2 months in the hospital, so I really was not in the place to go through a divorce myself at all. I am so glad I hired her because there would have been no way at all I would have been able to get any of this done without her. She did all the hard work in the back ground. She also shows she really cares too which seems hard to find in a lawyer. Very fair and straight forward. I hope I will never need a family law lawyer in my life ever again, but if I do, it's obvious I would go back to Brianna. Thank you Brianna for protecting me!!!

Amazing lawyer in California
I hired Brianna back a few months ago after I lost custody of my daughter due to a safety plan I was forced to sign from CPS in order to see my daughter. I was forced to have supervised visits at dads house that was not going to work for us so she helped me get to an agency ABC visitation with Monika who was also so amazing. And they both worked very hard to help clear my name and get back the custody that was taken from me wrongfully. Brianna has been working overtime for me and my family. She took my daughter as her own and never stopped fighting for what was right for my daughter. Brianna is hard working and will not stop fighting for the truth and what is right. She will not just take your money and say I tired she gives you 200% and more and bends over backwards for you. My ex husband tried all ways to make my life harder but with Brianna and the truth we showed the truth to the judge and I was awarded back my custody that was wrongfully taken from me.

Absolutely amazing lawyer
Brianna was referred to me from a friend for my divorce and thank God my friend referred her. Brianna had my divorced finalized in less than a year, which everything we had to do is absolutely amazing. This includes the restraining order, custody , child support , divorce. She is very professional, a really sweet young women to work with and always there when you need her. She helped me win sole legal custody of my daughters and walked me through the process and explainling everything that was happening. I know my outcome wouldn't have been the same without her as my attorney. I would refer her to everyone. Her prices are under what she should be getting with as much work, attention and detail she puts into your cases. If you need an attorney seriously hire her, she is the best and knows her stuff.

Passionate
Anything requiring an attorney is expensive, but I wanted to be divorced and be divorced fast . I can say w total confidence my investment in having Brianna Davis represent me was worth every penny. I never thought I would say that, but when you have children to protect while also going through settlement of divorce, you need somebody who will strongly advocate on your behalf. She fulfilled my expectations and was always there when I needed her – sometimes at 10:00 at night. I get teary-eyed just thinking about the grace and kindness she showed me going through one of the most difficult times of my life. I filed January 2018 and my divorce was finalized in 2018. From start to finish, throughout, she was proactive, accountable, reliable – I never, EVER, had to worry about what was going on and if things were being done on time. She is insanely organized and on top of things. I have no idea how she does it, especially given the fact that she isn’t a part of a big firm w secretaries and paralegals assisting her. I have friends who unfortunately have gone through the same thing and tell me stories about their representation and how they wonder what the heck is going on w their case. I keep my mouth shut and just smile, knowing I never had to worry about my counsel ever doing that to me. In such a complex field of work, it’s refreshing to know someone who is passionate about what they do and really want to help – it shows in how she carries herself and fights in your corner, every step of the way.

More stars needed
Five stars is not enough for this attorney. As I write this, I am trying to temper my tone so as not to sound over-the-top, but seriously. Ms. Davis embodies the storybook idea of what an attorney might be in a perfect world, which never is. Except when you hire her. I met Ms. Davis when I was three years into an awful divorce/ custody battle. I had lost all hope in the system. I called her only out of desperation, when things went from worst possible to even worse than I ever imagined. She met me that day. I walked out of her office crying with hope. She listened. She took detailed notes. She genuinely cared about doing the right thing. She cares about my daughter's well being. She is an expert in difficult cases, particularly where there is a history of abuse. In my case, the court had never recognized this. Prior to dealing with Ms. Davis, I had no regular communication with my attorney. She shared documents and updates in real time; she called me to read filings aloud before she sent them. She let me know, to the dollar, where my money was going. She took on this case with passion, heart, and expertise. The results have been beyond what I would have ever expected. I wish I could give ten stars. I found her because I called another attorney, who was way beyond what I could afford even if I won the lottery, who was kind enough to listen, and Brianna Davis was the first name he mentioned as someone who was excellent and affordable. I guarantee that she is underpaid for what she does. I am grateful that I found her when I did. Ms. Davis has been the lynchpin to securing safety and security for my daughter and I after three years of a hellish and difficult battle in court. As good as she is, she should be damn near impossible to hire. Anyone fortunate enough to work with her should count themselves extremely blessed.

Excellent Attorney
I had previously tried to stay away from hiring an attorney in my family law case. However, when I faced problems that were too big for me to handle on my own, I was referred to Brianna by a friend. She was on top of everything from the very beginning and helped me through the difficult time with poise, strategy and success. I would recommend her to anyone looking for help with family law.

Unbelievable Attorney
Ms. Davis is one-of-a-kind. She is a high- caliber attorney with a tenacious spirit. She is a bulldog in the courtroom. The work she put in to give me the best possible representation is second to none. She has a methodical operation that gave me an advantage and put me in an optimal position in my legal battles. Her technical abilities in family law awarded me opportunities to be a better father to my son. Without her, I would have been seriously lacking. Brianna Davis will continue to represent me through my dealings with custody of my son.

You want her to be your lawyer
When I was referred to her, she was described as being "a pistol". Understatement. More like a cannon. She fights for her clients and stays on top of things. She's absolutely amazing to work with!
