The best way to avoid payment issues is to negotiate the payment terms and conditions of the contract, as well as the remedies of the parties from the beginning. But of course, unfortunately, there are times a general contractor (“GC”) is slow to pay or fails to pay its subcontractors. If you are a subcontractor…
Direct Flow Inc. has been using KMDA Legal Services since 2005 from administration of corporate books to filing (and collecting) of Mechanics Liens. At all times we have found KMDA Legal Services to be dependable, reliable, hard working, conscientious, courteous and honest. Kelly Davis and her staff are organized, efficient, and extremely competent. I recommend KMDA Legal Services for getting the results you want.
Kelly Davis has been our corporation’s attorney for many years and we will continue to be clients of hers for many years to come. As custom home builders we have had challenging situation that have been resolved with a minimum of difficulty. We even called on Kelly when a family estate had to be probated. For one year we had “The MasterBuilder” radio show and called on Kelly on several occasions to provide, on air, expert information for our builder and non-builder listening audience. We have many examples, of what we consider an exception professional and personal relationship with Kelly Davis. Kelly knows the construction business, she is honest, efficient with her time and our budget and highly approachable. We recommend Kelly Davis without reservation.
I was at a complete loss when, after talking with three attorneys, Kelly Davis was recommended. After initial visit I knew I had found a Gem. She listened, did her homework and put together a plan of action. Couldn’t have asked for more from her and staff and will forever be thankful!
Kelly Davis and her team have represented The Countersource, Inc. since 2007. Corporate books, mechanics liens and employee issues have been handled economically and efficiently. I am confident in the counsel proffered by Kelly Davis and Associates.
I have known Ms. Davis for years and the person I recommend to my clients when an expert is needed. Ms. Davis not only listens but goes above and beyond for her client’s best interest. Do not hesitate to call her when you need an attorney to fight on your side.
Kelly M. Davis & Associates is Charvold Homes & Prop. go to source when we need anything related to our legal needs. We highly recommend them and really value them as a part of our legal team.
Not only is Kelly M. Davis an expert in the construction legal field, but she possesses exemplary compassion for her clients and their cases. As a longtime colleague of Kelly and a business owner myself, I would refer her to any Texas business owner or anyone in the construction industry. Ms. Davis regularly speaks for LawPracticeCLE (and other continuing education companies) on construction related topics to aid her peers in providing the same educated, technological, and up-to-date legal assistance to which she models.
Sense of urgency and professionalism are the terms that best describes the type of service you receive from Kelly M Davis and her associates. My CPA firm, formed in Flower Mound, Texas in 1982, has worked with Kelly M Davis since 2005, when we were first introduced to her firm by a mutual client in the telecommunications manufacturing industry. At that time, our CPA firm was working with a regional countertop company in Dallas. That is when we realized the Kelly was a construction expert in the areas of arbitration, contracts and collections. Her monthly newsletter is a staple in the construction industry and her tenacity in representing her client is the best. Since 2005, our firm has continued to recommend her services to other companies in various specialized construction industry such as, electrical contract, solar contract, window installations, home and commercial builders, real estate firms, and also those companies that are not in the construction industry but need someone they can trust with other legal issues regarding contracts and wills and trusts for companies too busy and forget the necessity of having a good attorney who is their advocate.
I recently had a situation where I had to file a mechanics lien. I had no idea how to proceed so I contacted Kelley M. Davis and Associates, LLC. for help. Ms. Davis wrote a very impressive letter threatening the lien, problem immediately solved upon receipt.
I was really impressed with the ease in dealing with them and amount of contact they kept with me during the short time between contacting them and resolution of the problem. I have to say this is the first pleasant experience I have ever had dealing with any law firm. The pricing was as advertised, and I’m not used to that with attorneys.
I fully intend on using them again when/if I ever need services that they provide.
My wife and I experienced an unbelievably terrible contractor experience, and we had no choice but to terminate the contractor. Although the contractor was paid for work completed, they chose to place a lien on our property for more than three times the amount of the original contract and we had virtually little recourse or so we thought. We consulted with one attorney who gladly collected our money but gave us no recommendations or solutions to our situation. After considerable research, my wife came across Kelly Davis & Associates who had a considerable amount of experience in liens and fraudulent liens. We schedule a visit and met with one of the associates and knew right away we were at the right place! The probing questions with intelligence and expertise gave us immediate sense of relief. Our associate sent an exceptional demand letter citing the many flaws with their lien to the contractor requesting the lien be removed within 5 business. It was removed within 5 business days and we can now have peace back into our lives. I have to say that I have never had a situation like this and Kelly Davis & Associates truly provided us a legal solution and alleviated the months of anguish that we had experienced.
I cannot thank them enough for what they have done for me and my wife!!
Kelly Davis is needle in a haystack when it comes to attorneys. Smart, tough, collaborative, creative problem solver, detail oriented, caring and responsive are all words that describe Kelly Davis. She recently saved my LLC from losing up to 50K on a project when we almost most hired a General Contractor that was ripping off his clients. Additionally, she helped me navigate through a very complex and tumultuous LL/Tenant issue. She is a true professional and an answer to prayer.
KMD and associates have been a very valuable part of my construction business for many years. They have helped and supported me in every way possible. I literally cannot operate my business without them. Thank you!!!
