Welcome to P. A. Davis Law Office, LLC! I am so pleased you have found us. I am proud to offer award winning legal support to make your legal goals a reality.

As a family law attorney I bring a honed strategic and analytical mind to resolving legal problems. I love what I do because I get to use these skills and experience to help families. As a family-woman myself, I understand and appreciate the lengths one must go to protect their rights and those of their loved ones. I work to ensure that my clients are protected, look out for their interests, and strongly advocate for their interests. It is my honor to be a positive force for clients as they go through difficult legal situations and work to strategically resolve them.

Additionally, my prior 10-year career at the U.S. GAO in Washington, DC. makes me uniquely qualified in examining policies, legislation, compliance, analyzing and proposing recommendations in systems and practices to improve businesses and organizations. This foundation of process, legal, and program analysis, and organizational development, makes me a strong partner for resolving family law matters, as well as supporting the legal needs of entrepreneurs and corporate professionals when I handle business or corporate law matters.
