What it's like to work at George Davies

George Davies is a, friendly and vibrant place to work. I enjoy working in a environment where everyone is focussed on ensuring that our clients aims and objectives are met in a professional yet friendly way.

 What clients say about me

"James has given me and my wife the peace of mind that a well written will provides. James isn’t just a skilful solicitor but a gentleman to boot. His advice is technical and well explained. I will be forever in his debt for the time he spent with my parents, and his patience advising and writing their wills in very difficult circumstances. Better hands you couldn’t wish to be in! Thank you from all my family." 

My professional memberships/ networks

I am a student member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP)

What I do when I'm not at work

I am a keen sportsman and play Rugby Union and participate in Triathlons regularly. I am currently considering whether it would be foolish to take part in an ironman triathlon! I also have a keen interest in travelling having visited much of South America and Malaysia.
