Derek Davis joined his father’s firm in 1995 after receiving his J.D. from the University of Texas School of Law. He initially focused his work on plaintiff’s personal injury cases, achieving numerous notable verdicts and settlements.
When it comes to business disputes, Derek Davis brings years of experience guiding clients to successful resolutions at the settlement table and in the courtroom.
In 1998, he handled a case involving gunshot injury suffered by a 16-year-old boy that resulted in a multi-million dollar jury verdict. The boy was on a hunting trip when his .22-caliber firearm failed to fire. Assuming the gun was empty, the boy set the gun down to reload it. The gun then discharged, striking him in the leg and causing an injury that led to amputation.
As a personal injury lawyer, Davis also won an important defamation case in Utah on behalf of a TV news reporter who had been fired and unable to find subsequent employment due to statements made by her employer. Contact him today for a free consultation.
In 2003, Davis pursued a new venture, launching a real estate investment company. With that business experience under his belt, Davis returned to Byrd Davis in 2008 as an “of counsel” attorney, concentrating his work on commercial litigation. Those matters range from partnership disputes to breach-of-contract cases. He also serves as an outside counsel to small companies.
