We had an exceedingly negative experience with the Law Offices Of Vincent W Davis & Associates.
My wife & I are former foster/adoptive parents. Last year, DCFS placed a dangerous & mentally disturbed 13-year-old foster girl in our home. DCFS was aware that she was violent, psychotic & sexually aggressive, but lied about her history in order to get her placed. The child repeatedly sexually assaulted my wife, tortured our cats (paralyzing one & injuring another), assaulted & VERY nearly murdered both of us, until she was taken to a psychiatric hospital after claiming to be possessed by demons she saw in a mirror.
It was like something out of a horror movie & was called "the worst foster care case ever recorded".
After she was removed, we filed a police report for sexual battery & assault. She then retaliated by filing an unknown allegation against us.
We retained the Law Offices of Vincent W Davis & Associates for $9600 to file a lawsuit against DCFS & defend us from whatever the allegation was.
Attorney Stephanie Davis was assigned, but ignored us & refused to respond to any attempts at communication for an entire month.
After mentioning the breach of fiduciary duty, attorney Stephanie Davis finally called & admitted she never opened my emails because she claimed they 'might have had a virus'.
Vincent davis later demanded a third $7500 retainer, despite the other two retainers not having been exhausted.
We were suspicious that our retainers were being kept while no work was being done. I sent a concerned, yet polite email to the Law Offices of Vincent W Davis & Associates requesting a copy of our file in order to obtain a second opinion from another firm.
Attorney Vincent Davis retaliated by angrily cancelling our contract in the middle of an active case and ignored all attempts at communication for around a week.
We have since reported them to the California State Bar for ethics violations.
