What our clients say
I knew that my business needed certain permits. I even did research myself to try and find them. But I kept having this feeling I was missing something. Hiring Davis Business law as outside general counsel gave me comfort that I was operating lawfully.
I didn’t even know that the way I was paying my employees broke the law. Davis Business Law audited my payroll practices and now I have peace of mind that I am paying everyone what they need to be paid and my risk of a lawsuit is low.
My end goal was to sell my business and retire off the money. Davis Business Law helped me develop a five-year strategy to get my business in good financial shape so it would be attractive to a buyer. When it comes time to sell, I will have them prepare the agreement.
Your success is our priority
Other attorneys may offer a templated demand letter, not specific to your issues or the letter is focused only to serve the next step of litigation. Costly litigation may be the goal for other law firms, but at DavisBusiness Law, our immediate bottom line is not our priority. Our priority at Davis Business Law is protecting our client’s dreams to form long-term relationships. Therefore, we focus on fiscal responsibility toward our clients and to help our clients understand the value proposition of litigation and any other available options. Call us – unlike other firms, we take our calls seriously.Call Now
What you can expect
Our attorneys make themselves available for clients. With some other law firms, you may have to wait days or weeks to schedule a call with your attorney. We know that time is money (and sometimes stress), so if our attorneys can’t talk to you right then, they work to get back to you within 24 hours.
We actively write and respond to demand letters every day. We read between the lines and identify what their lawyer intentionally avoided. We deliver a strategic response rather than the unwanted reaction.
Your Davis Business Law attorney will listed and understand your story. They will ask for any text messages, emails, contracts, pictures, or potential witnesses who can support your narrative.
Once your attorney initiates communication, they maintain frequent and consistent contact. Upon engaging with the other party, they provide you with advice on the steps needed to reach a resolution. Each communication we send will pursue your specified goals.
How does my attorney negotiate on my behalf?
They will inquire about your preferred deal, your worst-case scenario, and any deal-breakers you might have. These discussions establish the boundaries to conduct negotiations. No deal will be proposed or accepted without your explicit consent.
Why does my attorney advise against accepting the demand as is?
Occasionally, your attorney may recommend that you refrain from accepting the demand for two main reasons. Neither reason prevents you from accepting the offer. 1) Value proposition – Your attorney believes that the demand is excessive and unlikely to be granted in court. They believe they can negotiate a more favorable deal for you, at a cost lower than what it would take to engage them. 2) Long-term consequences – Your attorney believes that accepting the demand exposes you to greater risks, typically related to admitting fault or agreeing to a narrative with far-reaching implications.
Will your response prevent litigation?
Possibly. Litigation is sometimes unavoidable, but it is never assumed as inevitable. Proceeding to litigate is a deliberate decision, typically after many failed communications with the opposing party. This often stems from an inability to agree on facts or the ability to meet financial demands.
Can I initiate a lawsuit instead of responding?
Absolutely, you can. However, it is important to note that litigation can be costly, and merely being the first to file does not grant you the option to withdraw at any time.
How much will this cost?
The concise answer is “what you can afford,” and the detailed answer is “it depends.” Your budget plays a central role in determining the strategic response. We prioritize your financial requirements, meticulously track time, and send invoices every fourteen days – keeping you informed about the remaining balance of your retainer and estimating the funds needed for the next step(s).
