Attorney Jim Davis

Jim Davis is a trial attorney. Admitted to practice law in 2000, he is a tireless, zealous, advocate for his clients. Attorney Davis prosecutes and defends complex civil claims in both state and federal court.

Jim has recovered millions of dollars for his clients in personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice and construction defect cases.

Jim is driven by a simple principal “caring”, “to care” is the most important word in the English Language: you have to care about yourself, your clients, your work and your family – caring is what drives Jim.

There is no shortcut to success in winning cases – it takes intentional listening to our client’s needs and goals, meticulous legal research and analysis and exhaustive preparation to win large dollar recoveries. Framing your case to fit your core values and beliefs with your jurors core values and beliefs is how we take jurors from “lawsuits are bad” to “justice demands a large financial award” for you. We help jurors self-discover how important it is to care – whether in an injury case, medical malpractice, wrongful death or complex construction action – to care about you.

When not working, Jim enjoys spending time with his wife Susanne and their two sons, Henry and Grayson.
