Davis Rice was so easy to work with. Very professional, but he also felt like my friend. Which mattered more than I thought. I had no doubt through the entire process, start to finish, that he had my back. I had someone in my corner. Communication!!!! Davis did that! Javonna did that!!! Javonna Brantley, his paralegal, is truly an amazing person. She was so easy to talk to and did whatever she could to help! She was on top of it! I thoroughly enjoyed working with these two! Although, I pray I never need an injury attorney again, I will forever recommend Davis Rice with Joye Law Firm!!!
