Thirty years ago, David Boone & Michael Davis were both young lawyers who started their careers in a law firm that defended insurance companies against claims brought by injured parties. It did not take them long, however, to realize that their real passion was helping people. Representing insurance companies and large corporations was not in line with what they wanted to do. Today, Boone & Davis represents the injured as well as the loved ones of those killed due to the negligent or careless acts of corporations and individuals.
The Client is Number One
For 35 years, Boone & Davis has not wavered in its commitment to provide quality legal representation with integrity to victims of wrongful acts done by others in all types of personal injury claims. We focus on the effects the accident has had on our client and the family and recommend settlement only when it is in the best interests of the client. Direct contact with clients is standard at our firm, and speaking with the attorney handling the claim is encouraged.
“ We have the ability to resolve claims for amounts that leave us proud and our clients thrilled.”
Boone & Davis built its reputation over the past 35 years on sheer commitment, hard work and ethical conduct that help dictate favorable results for most of its cases. Their long years of dedicated effort have also provided the firm’s attorneys the ability to resolve most claims for amounts that leave them proud and their clients thrilled. When the insurance companies and corporate defense attorneys know that the firm will not only go to trial but will present a clear and convincing case, settlement calls are initiated by the defendants. This allows Boone & Davis to stand firm on its evaluation and demands, which equates to higher settlements.
No fanfare: Boone & Davis does not advertise on television, billboard, bus benches or the yellow pages. It believes that the best advertising or marketing is achieved through hard work until the ultimate results are achieved. Word of mouth by former clients occurs frequently.
“When your adversary refers you to his family, that’s the highest form of compliment.”
Boone & Davis has a steady flow of referrals coming from its clients, past and present, as well as those referred to it by attorneys who handle other areas of law. While it considers these referrals by former satisfied clients and local attorneys a sincere expression of respect and a form of compliment, Boone & Davis’ attorneys are most proud when an adjuster or insurance company attorney who has recently confronted them recommends the firm to their friends and family. We want to earn your trust.
Our Track Record
“The secret of the firm’s lasting and considerable success is skilled and aggressive lawyering, significant resources and commitment to serve.”
Although they have limited their practice to representing the victims for over 35 years, David Boone and Michael Davis together have not forgotten what they learned while working for insurance companies. In fact, their prior involvement on the defense side gave them insights into the practices and procedures used by many insurance companies. Knowing the “ins and outs” of insurance claims is valuable information used by Boone & Davis attorneys to the advantage and benefit of their clients.
They have successfully litigated and tried to verdict virtually every type of personal injury case including medical malpractice, defective product, wrongful death, insurance company bad faith, car, truck, motorcycle or pedestrian accidents, and injuries caused by criminal acts occurring in hotels, malls, apartment complexes and other properties resulting from inadequate security. The firm has extensive experience representing injured people with all types of accident and insurance claims
Boone & Davis: A cut above the rest
“We know where the courthouse is…we know the ins and outs.”
Most of the personal injury claims handled by the firm’s experienced litigators are brought against major insurance companies or large corporations that spare no expense in hiring the most qualified law firms and expert witnesses to defend them. Often, their goal is to avoid responsibility for the accident and to limit the amount of the ultimate recovery. Many insurance companies and large corporations engage in numerous tactics including delaying the case, spending unlimited amounts of money and investigating every potential area for information that will help them minimize the recovery. Boone & Davis is well aware of the tactics employed by defense attorneys and has the skills and financial resources to counter them. Boone & Davis, its attorneys and staff stand with their clients in a partnership that withstands any attack by the opposition.
“You are not alone…together we stand.”
Boone & Davis prepares its clients for their depositions. Most firms limit their preparation of the witness to a meeting in the lawyer’s office. At that time, the witness is barraged with many rules, suggestions and advice as to the “dos and don’ts” of a deposition. Appreciating the overwhelming amount of information as well as the pressure of time, Boone & Davis has prepared a professional video that provides the basic rules, suggestions and advice for depositions. Each client receives the video, which provides the client the opportunity to sit in the comfort of their home and view the video as often as needed. There is no doubt that between the video and in-office conferences, the client will be well prepared for their deposition, which increases their chance of obtaining a higher settlement.
From the start, Boone & Davis prepares their cases for trial. This preparedness to take action, whenever necessary, “unsettles” its opponents, thus many of its cases are resolved before reaching the jury.
By mixing traditional hard copy exhibits with top-of-the-line digital video, document projection and plasma display systems, Florida lawyers Boone & Davis are able to present to the jury a visual understanding of the case. This sophisticated production is what sets Boone & Davis apart from many other law firms and makes it a leader in courtroom presentations. The firm also engages qualified and experienced videographers and technicians to produce “day-in-the-life” videos, settlement presentations, CD-Roms and DVDs. This also sends a message to the defense attorneys that Boone & Davis will be well prepared to present its client’s case to a jury in a professional and clear manner in an effort to recover full damages for the client.
