Example cases

I have handled a number of difficult cases including a move-away case that involved a lot of litigation, testimony and motions. I finally did get the move-away after many hours of hard, complex work.

I have also dealt with both battered women and battered husband cases, hidden asset cases and cases in which both parties wanted a pound of flesh. The latter are not pleasant.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Family law became my primary category mainly by accident--I started to like it, and began getting a large number of family law clients.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

This is good; it helps make my job easier. I also work to educate my clients by explaining how the court might rule and why.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?


Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?


Bill Davis

I was a teacher before I became an attorney, and when I got my law degree I opened up my own firm.

I think my teaching experience helps, as well as having held a number of jobs when I was younger. I also have a wide range of interest in a lot of different things, which helps me to understand people better.

I feel that I'm smart and I know what I'm doing.

I come in prepared. Though I can never predict everything, I do spend the necessary time to make sure that a case goes well.

Personal interests:

I like literature so I spend a lot of time reading; I have also been a Toastmaster for a long time, which I enjoy, and I like spending time with my kids.
