I am a business attorney who advises and assists clients with business transactions and commercial litigation matters.

Mr. Davis has more than 35 years of experience in assisting clients with all of their business needs, from formation of the business through contracts, commercial business dealings, and, if necessary, litigation. He has formed hundreds of businesses, dealt with thousands of contracts, and litigated numerous business matters through arbitration, court trial, and jury trial. Mr. Davis attempts to avoid costly litigation if possible, but has the knowledge and experience to ensure the best possible result if litigation is the only remaining alternative.
