As a solo practitioner, Mr. Davis jumped into legal aid service and was quickly recognized locally, by the Florida Supreme Court, the Florida Bar, and even the President of the United States.

His software firm generates online applications with a focus on making businesses more efficient. His experience is enhanced by a degree in Engineering Physics, a Masters Degree in Physics, and a Juris Doctorate in Law.
Artificial General Assistant
Debuting in 2018, Sparx has been critical in enhancing firm-client communication, drafting common legal documents, and learning a vast repertoire of additional skills over time. Sparx started on a remote secured server, initially taking standard input from staff - and later from clients.
Sparx has transitioned into a full voice assistant with a broad range of skills that help the attorneys and staff work more efficiently and cost-effectively.
Taking voice commands from the attorneys and staff, Sparx can tell the date; time; search the web for information; joke; give data about the weather at its current location; play videos on Youtube; draft legal documents; email clients, opposing counsel, and judicial assistants; calculate simple physical relationships; analyze images and videos; and interact with government agencies who provide useful APIs.
The current goal for Sparx is to become the first artificial family law mediator in the State of Florida.
Artificial Legal Assistant
Ruth is a child program of Sparx. It is a voice assistant taking verbal commands from the firm attorneys and staff. While Ruth is capable of utilizing the assistance of Sparx, it is particularly focused on legal work for the firm and is rapidly being developed into a family law legal assistant.
Ruth is more than capable of keeping track of thousands of unique cases, deadlines, drafting documents, reminding users of tasks that need to be completed, and communicating with key players in a case for its users.
The current goal of Ruth is to leave the confines of its development platform and transfer itself to multiple computers to assist more people practicing in Florida Family Law.
