A couple’s decision to divorce can begin a lengthy and painful process, both financially and emotionally. Davison & Davison’s divorce and family law team have the experience, expertise and (most importantly) the compassion to successfully guide the divorcing husband or wife through the legal steps toward the dissolution of their marriage.

F. Mayes Davison, who leads the firm’s Divorce and Family Law division, is well-respected throughout the region and state of Georgia for his longtime work in domestic cases. He balances his knowledge of family law with an acute sensitivity to the interests of children. In addition, Mayes has handled numerous adoptions throughout his career.

 Mayes’s background as a criminal defense attorney is also a key asset in divorce situations that involve criminal activity or result in a jury trial.

The Divorce and Family Law division is supported by the vast resources of the entire firm in areas of expertise such as estate planning and asset protection that may be utilized in a divorce case.

Personal Injury

Personal Injury/Wrongful Death

In personal injury and wrongful death cases, Davison & Davison focuses first on helping victims and their families in turmoil to patch their lives back together again.  Court cases of this nature typically range from injuries in a serious automobile wreck to death from a workplace accident. 

Being backed by the resources of one of the area’s most experienced and longest established firms enabled the personal injury team to put the highest level of expertise to work in successfully resolving personal injury cases.  At the same time, the firm only accepts a select number of personal injury cases in order to ensure priority attention focused toward each individual client’s case.

Estate Planning

Estate Planning & Administration

Davison & Davison’s estate planning attorneys have the expertise and experience to guide almost any individual through the process of anticipating and planning for his or her personal needs in the event of incapacitation and for the ultimate disposition of his or her assets. We represent a wide array of clients, ranging from those with minimal assets and basic planning needs to those with substantial and complex assets and circumstances requiring sophisticated tax, asset-protection and business-succession planning. We carefully tailor each estate plan based on the unique needs and desires of the client and on the ever-changing landscape of our legal environment, and we regularly coordinate our planning and implementation efforts with the client’s accountants, investment advisors and insurance professionals.

Our planning strategies include the creation of general power of attorney, Georgia Advanced Directive for Health, simple wills, and complex wills directing the disposition of assets at death for the benefit of multiple generations of beneficiaries.

In implementing our estate and asset protection plans, we regularly employ the following tools:

Basic Lifetime and Testamentary Planning Tools: including wills, powers of attorney, and advance directives for healthcare.
Legal Entities: including limited liability companies, family limited partnerships, limited liability, limited partnerships, business corporations, and non-profit corporations.
