Catherine E. Davey
Catherine was born in Jacksonville and raised here in central Florida, graduating from Lyman High School in Longwood. She currently resides in Maitland with her daughters.
Catherine has been delighted to live her childhood dream of practicing law for nearly thirty years. Catherine began practicing law near St. Petersburg, representing the State of Florida, Agency for Health Care Administration during their fledgling efforts to recover from estates in Florida for Medicaid liens. Since that time, she has been in practice here in Orlando. More than twenty years ago, she started her own firm to continue to focus her practice on probate, guardianship, guardian advocacy, estate planning, and the drafting and implementation of Special Needs Trusts for the physically and developmentally disabled.
“When my youngest daughter was born with Down syndrome, my purpose in life became abundantly clear. I am to change the lives of those I serve to build a better future for her and the entire community.”
As part of her role on the Probate Rules Committee of the Florida Bar, Catherine and Davey Law Group were honored to be a part of creating proposed forms for Guardian Advocacy which the Florida Supreme Court accepted in 2020.
Additionally, Catherine created and implemented “Low Down on Law” in 2015. Held twice a year, Low Down on Law seeks to educate families about guardianship, guardian advocacy, estate planning, and special needs trusts and to help them navigate the legal system so they can advocate on behalf of their family.
