Review Christopher Davis

About Me

     Mr. Davis is a seasoned criminal litigator who has been lead counsel in over seventy-five trials, inclusive of indictments alleging violations of RICO (murder, fraud, drugs) and Conspiracy (both domestic and international); Complex Fraud (mail, bank, wire, medical/insurance, real estate, tax, money laundering, securities); Kidnappings resulting in death; Child Pornography and Federal Firearm Offenses. He is a recognized federal death penalty litigator with extensive training in the area of mental health issues.


 


    Notwithstanding the above, Christopher Davis’ extensive experience particularly qualifies him to advise individuals as to when it is time to minimize their exposure as opposed to going to trial. Many of his cases are resolved well before a trial date. Many of his cases have been successfully resolved at the grand jury investigation stage, before any charges are filed.
