Premium Attorney - Classy Guy
My name is Will MacHugh. Kirk has been my attorney for the last 3 years on a personal Injury case. He was referred by my business partners friend. I was in an accident a the end of 2017. I had surgery, and some long term damage to my thumb. Kirk took the time to get to know me, know the doctors, understand the circumstances, and spent diligent time on the case. At no time did I ever feel like calling him 'Mr. Davis'. He's been a friend, who has been on my side, and worked to protect my interest. He knows insurance, and the court, and he has solid staff. Even during this pandemic, his solid footing in the system got us a position in trial despite the efforts of the insurance company. That effort lead us to a fair victory in court. I participate in several small companies, each with their own unique legal challenges. If I ever have legal issues of a personal nature again, I would not hesitate to call my friend Kirk. I would encourage you to do the same.

Highly recommend
I worked with Kirk on a personal injury claim that I was trying to settle myself. He was very helpful in the initial (free) consultation and was generous enough to answer some follow-up questions via email. Because I was not successful in negotiating terms on my own, I hired Kirk and I only wish I would have done so sooner because it would have alleviated a lot of unnecessary stress. As soon as he took over I felt a huge sense of relief. Kirk is very calm, personable, kind, smart and strategic, and highly professional in his interactions with me and the other parties. He was successful in getting a fair settlement, and the whole process exceeded my expectations.

Above and beyond
I hired Kirk to represent me in a personal injury case involving a violent passenger on the one hand and a large ride-sharing corporation on the other hand. The case was litigated in both civil and criminal courts. Kirk was retained to protect my interests in both courts. He is an amazing negotiator, talented legal strategist, and fierce advocate for his clients. Yet he is also very respectful with everyone and genuinely charming in person. His legal skills, professionalism and ethics are on par with highest industry standards. He is a five-plus-stars type of a lawyer.

Excellent, Empathetic Attorney
I contacted Kirk Davis on recommendation from another attorney when the law firm representing me totally failed to communicate. Never had that problem with Kirk, to say the least. He is attentive, on point, and easy to talk to. We won our case. Irrespective of whether we won or lost, I would recommend Kirk on his attitude alone. Attorneys in this area can be overworked and hard to get in touch with. You feel attacked and in peril if you are falsely accused and you need someone who will really give you the feeling that they are with you, they hear you and they show you they know what the heck they are doing. Kirk is a mild-mannered guy, but when the judge in our case showed some serious bias against us, Kirk went right after him. After the verdict that the judge told us that although he seemed annoyed, he "respected (Kirk's) zealous defense of (his) client" and that he "'would expect nothing less from a good attorney". Kirk advised me to make a settlement in my case, because he's a sensible lawyer and he didn't want to expose me to unnecessary risk. When I told him I just couldn't compromise, he respected my decision, defended me and won.

Sharp and Empathetic Attorney
To start off with Mr. Davis is extremely clever. His experience as a prosecutor has given him plenty of creative strategies and he could very easily double as a detective. He has that kind of mind. Mr. Davis very carefully and meticulously reviewed all of my documentation. His eyes scanned the material like a laser. He was able to offer a legal opinion once he reviewed all of the material. I cried in his office due to the injustice I endured and you could see the passion in his eyes in regard to his desire to win my case and defend justice and righteousness. In the end we reached a settlement with the other side and avoided a trial, which was a great result. If we were in trial I am certain he would have come out on top. He's just that good. He's also very pleasant to work with and seems like a great person. If I ever need legal assistance again I am heading straight to Mr. Davis.

Beyond All Expectation
An insurance dispute had brought me nothing but despair. Damages to vehicles & ensuing medical bills had been denied to me under my Geico 'coverage. I was stuck with a most unwinnable case, alone against the giant that is GEICO. Having been turned down by every attorney I sought, I met Kirk Davis nearly by accident. Hearing of my many complications in a brief hallway discussion, Mr. Davis immediately offered his assistance as to the most dire of potential consequences: As GEICO had refused to cover the damages of this (my only ever) accident, I was suddenly being denied my driving privileges for causing an accident while "uninsured (i.e. GEICO's refusal to pay). I had an upcoming hearing with the DOL & no means to represent myself. Kirk's outstanding generosity of one hour's free time led to a last minute swift settlement with the DOL on my behalf. Kirk leapt to my aide without any compensation, after only the briefest of introductions. He recognized where he could be most effective & rallied successfully for me, at zero benefit to himself. There is no exaggeration in that Kirk Davis holds the top place in my heart for gratitude. He saved me when I was bereft of hope & at my most vulnerable. I trust, value & recommend Kirk Davis with every star available.

Excellent representation
Kirk fought hard for me, even when it became apparent that my case was not worth as much as we originally thought. Ultimately, we got a result that was significantly better than expected. He exhibited extraordinary care and compassion. He's a good guy and a great lawyer.

Mr. Davis is an Attorney With a Big Heart
I am advocating for a friend of mine in a long-term domestic violence situation. Mr. Davis is a patient listener and a compassionate voice for victims. I would highly recommend his services as he is extremely knowledgeable about a range of legal topics affecting those struggling with devastating situations.

Very friendly and aproachable
Kirk has two qualities which, while they really shouldn't be, are a lot less common than one might wish: a strong knowledge of the law, and a helpful and caring manor. He was always available, very approachable, considerate, and willing to put up with my own short comings. But, our case (a messy psudo-domestic violence affair) was won because he was able to construct a strong legal argument from the facts of the case, rather than the sort of passionate name calling that I have seen (and saw directed against me). I would definitely recommend Kirk Davis to anyone.

Domestic Violence
You may have heard the saying "Life is not fair", this is true. You may have also heard, "Innocent until proven guilty" this is not true. If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in the legal system, you will need a highly competent attorney to help you navigate a system where up is down, and down is up. Kirk is a brilliant attorney. Extremely intelligent with a very calm and personable demeanor. I can't recommend him strongly enough to help you in any legal case.

Effective, efficient, accessible, and exceptional attorney!
I highly recommend Kirk Davis for any criminal or personal injury matter. Kirk is highly effective in the courtroom and keeps you up to speed every step if the way. He works hard to bring his clients a calculated legal strategy and reasonable legal fees along with a big heart and calming presence - a winning combination that gives lawyers a good name. I couldn't be happier with the high quality legal service and support Kirk Davis provided me. He brings decades of legal experience and can easily help you navigate your options and risks. Kirk successfully represented me and provided legal counsel from March to May 2015. Thanks to Kirk, I have an order of protection, peace of mind, and a little more faith in humanity. If you ever need an attorney, call Kirk. You won't regret it.

Exceptional Services
I had a legal issue and Kirk was recommended to me through a relative. Using his knowledge of the law and his experience as a prosecutor, he got my legal issues dismissed. Kirk has a strong personal touch and fully understood my situation and made me feel comfortable about my legal proceedings. I can't thank him enough. I would definitely recommend him and his fees are definitely reasonable considering the caliber of lawyer he is.

RECOMENDED
Kirk Davis was very quick at helping me accomplish all the things that i needed to get done before my court dates. He was able to reduce and drop a lot of charges and make it easy for me to keep supporting my family. He was able to keep me on a possitive track on life and out of the accidental incident that I was in. Thank you Kirk!

Kirk Davis: skilled, intelligent, and sharp
Kirk was an excellent advocate. His reading of our situation was quick and accurate, and the path he recommended ended with the best possible outcome. He was willing to accommodate our unusual schedule and was very accessible.

Wonderful DUI Lawyer
Kirk was very informative and enjoyable to work with. He answered all my questions and had some good insights into the DUI process. He was able to get my DUI reduced to reckless driving. I was unsure at the start but was glad I chose Kirk as my lawyer.
Posted by Thomas | March 13, 2014
Communicative and Knowledgeable
Kirk handled a DV case for me. The case was eventually dismissed. I highly recommend him because of his communication and knowledge. As with most DV cases, mine was emotional and having an attorney who was responsive set me at ease. He was never "too busy" to answer my questions and keep me informed. In the end, the case proceeded exactly as he predicted and was dismissed. If you find yourself in this terrible situation, Don't hesitate to have Kirk assist you.

Great Lawyer! Very Efficient!
Mr Davis handled my car accident case with integrity, was attentive and efficient in handling the details. I'm pleased the settlement and his service.

A great lawyer I would recommend to everyone!
I contacted Mr. Davis and his team when I was charged by a Federal Grand Jury with involvement in criminal activity. According to the charges, I was facing several years of incarceration in addition to significant fines and possible deportation. Thanks to the excellent legal counsel and services provided by Mr. Davis and his team, my sentence was ultimately reduced to zero months of incarceration with one year of probation! As a green-card holder with no family in the US, the Prosecution believed I was a flight risk. Consequently, the Prosecution held me in custody at a Federal Detention Center pre-trial. Mr. Davis coordinated with my husband and family in separate countries oversees both to obtain statements to the Court and to address my financial needs. In addition, he coordinated with my friend in the US obtain a statement to the Court that I had a place to stay pre-trial. Consequently, the Court released me from custody pre-trial. Mr. Davis visited me numerous times while I was in custody pre-trial. He kept me well-informed at every stage of my case and he was always very professional, kind, calm, and encouraging. I always knew that Mr. Davis really cared about me as a person and I always trusted that he was doing the best-possible work to resolve my case successfully. In addition, his team of legal professionals were always available and were always very kind and helpful. Words cannot express my gratitude to Mr. Davis and his team of professionals!

A SEASONED PROFESSIONAL
Kirk Davis saved my life and my career. He fought for me endlessly against difficult circumstances and prosecutors. I picked him based on talking to several lawyers, none of whom were as honest or professional. He exhausted every option and never gave up on my case resulting in a DISMISSAL. He was punctual and always returned my calls and emails, making my trying time all the less stressful. I really can't express how much this man has done for me. He has changed my opinion of lawyers.

Kirks intelligance and knowledge is first class. Kirk is well connected within the legal system in Seattle and really knows his away around the court system. If you are in any sort of legal trouble, I would look no further and give Kirk a call.
