About Me

Davy is from Philadelphia but most of his childhood was spent in West Africa (Liberia) and Canada. He returned to Philadelphia to attend law school at Temple University obtaining the degree of Juris Doctor in 1980 and the degree of Master of Laws in Trial Advocacy in 1998. Davy has resided in the Ambler area for over 20 years raising three children with the loving support of his wife, Josephine.


 


Davy spent the first third of his legal career representing insurance companies and large corporate or municipal defendants. His career focus changed to representing injured plaintiffs under the tutelage of James E. Beasley and after several years he began his own law firm representing accident victims exclusively.


 


Davy’s passion is litigation. He is voted every year by his colleagues as a top attorney in Pennsylvania for personal injury. He is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania and New Jersey State and Federal Bars. He is a founding Master in the Inn of Court for Bucks County. Davy has lectured on various legal topics and their impact on the prosecution of personal injury claims with an emphasis on trial advocacy.
