Attorney David M. Davis Advocates for the American Diabetes Association at the Capitol

(Austin, Texas) Aug. 31, 2010 – David M. Davis, founder of the law firm of Davis & Wright, represented the American Diabetes Association at a press conference at the Texas State Capitol Building last week.

As Chairman of the ADA Central Texas Leadership Board, Davis helped recognize the VSP Vision Care – Eye on Diabetes Project.  VSP is a not-for-profit vision benefit company and a national partner of the ADA.

 “The mission of VSP is directly linked to diabetes since the first indication of the disease is often eye problems,” said Davis.  “VSP’s Mobile Eye Clinic provides free eye exams in communities in conjunction with the ADA and local doctors of Optometry.” 

Davis has been actively involved in ADA leadership and advocacy for over 25 years.  In addition to his work with the ADA, Davis has been recognized for his service to the Rotary International’s Polio Plus effort to eradicate polio from the world as well as his services on the Board of Directors of the Championship Hearts Foundation.

Attorney David M. Davis Recognized for Expertise in Medical Liability, Legal Liability and Medical Device Fields

Founding Director of Davis & Wright Has Also Been Invited to Join the Prestigious Council on Litigation Management

(Austin, TX) June 16, 2010 – Just as he did 25 years ago when he started the firm, David M. Davis of Davis & Wright is attracting the attention of his peers with his passion and knowledge.

The latest recognitions come from the Round Table Group (RTG) and the Council on Litigation Management (CLM).

The Round Table Group is an expert witness consulting service that connects “industry experts, corporate executives and academics with litigators building their cases.” The Wall Street Journal, which has profiled Round Table Group twice, called RTG “one of the few firms of true value for high profile companies seeking intellectual expertise.”

“It is a tremendous honor to be included with thousands of other experts in their respective fields,” said Davis. “But I am far from the only attorney at D&W who should be included in this directory. We are fortunate to have a wealth of intellectual capital at the firm, a fact that is borne out by the many satisfied clients that have remained loyal to us through the years.”

Davis’s other honor involved the CLM, which is a nonpartisan alliance of thousands of insurance companies, corporations, general counsel, risk managers, claims adjusters and attorneys. Attorneys and firms “must be nominated based on reputation and may become members by invitation only.”

Through education and collaboration, the Council’s goals are “to create a common interest in the representation by firms of companies, and to promote and further the highest standards of litigation management in pursuit of client defense.”

“I am honored to receive this award among such a diverse and talented group of peers,” said Davis, who is a Texas Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America. “I take as much pride in serving the community as I do practicing law.”

Davis, who is only the sixth recipient of the coveted community excellence award, was presented the award at the Foundation’s 2010 Gala. The ABF is the charitable arm of the Austin Bar Association, which has over 4,000 members.

Davis was recognized for his service to the Rotary International’s Polio Plus effort to eradicate polio from the world, his work as Chair and Advocacy Director of the American Diabetes Association of Central Texas Community Board, and his services on the Board of Directors of the Championship Hearts Foundation.

In April, Davis was featured for his community service in the Litigation Commentary & Review, the counsel’s online monthly newsletter.

In addition to this latest honor, Davis was recognized for his legal expertise by the Round Table Group and the Council on Litigation Management just last month.
