I am a different kind of trial lawyer and mediator. You won't hear big promises, complicated legal jargon, or leave wondering what is happening with your case.  I will speak honestly and in ordinary language. You will always hear my straightforward legal assessment whether you like it or not. I actually enjoy going to trial and being and advocate in the courtroom. I have taught dozens of other trial lawyers across the country how to present their client's case effectively.  

The goal at Davidson Law Firm, LLC is to work with you to prosecute your civil, criminal, and/or injury claims. I am dedicated to understanding what results you want from the very beginning and to helping you understand what actions we can and cannot take on your behalf. I will work with you every step of the way to make sure that you understand the choices you are making and feel empowered to make them.

Whether you are in Bay County, Florida, Panama City, Panama City Bech, Marianna, Destin, Pensacola or anywhere in the Panhandle, throughout Florida or Shelby County, Alabama, Alabaster, Pelham, Montevallo, Columbiana, Birmingham, Vestavia Hills, Hoover, or anywhere in Alabama I am here to work for you.  I have relationships with some of the best and well known personal injury firms in the nation to build the best litigation team to handle any personal injury case.  

No matter where you are or how serious your case is I can and will help! 

As an experienced civil litigator for both plaintiffs and defendants, I bring a practical approach to mediation to help the parties bring their dispute to an amicable resolution. I have litigated, mediated, and tried cases from typical automobile crashes, slips and falls, and defective products injuries to complex wrongful death cases for both plaintiffs and defendants. Civil litigation can be time intensive and costly to all involved. Mediation is a process whereby the parties can negotiate a resolution that is acceptable to all and bring closure their case saving time and money.  Having spent over twenty years litigating civil cases, injury cases in particular, and having local knowledge of the courts and juries allows me to bring a different, common sense, practical, perspective and ability in these cases to conduct a successful mediation.

I prefer to not play phone tag so you can set appointments online on my calendar and have a set time dedicated to your case that is convenient for both us.
