At the Davey Law Group P.A., we have tremendous respect for the courageous men and women who risk their lives and make daily sacrifices to protect and serve the public in times of urgent need. Catherine Davey understands this better than most as she comes from a family of firefighters and emergency management personnel.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to first responders (Firefighters, EMS, Police officers, Military, and Medical personnel) right here in Central Florida. These incredible individuals are saving lives, risking their health, and protecting our communities daily. We would like to recognize their hard work by offering a 25% price reduction on all of our estate planning services.
