Jacob Davis, a Georgia resident for over 11 years, graduated from the Hugh A. Glauser School of Music at Kent State University with a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Performance and Music Composition, followed by a Master of Music degree in Music Performance from the University of Georgia. Prior to attending law school at the University of Georgia, Jacob’s professional credentials on the bassoon and contrabassoon included appearances with the South Carolina Philharmonic, the Augusta Symphony, the North Canton Opera Orchestra in Ohio, and at the Bowdoin Chamber Music Festival in Maine.
After working as a professional musician for several years, Jacob decided to attend law school. While in law school, Jacob also worked as a law clerk for various law firms, gaining experience in a variety of civil legal matters, including contract disputes, tort litigation, and real estate. Jacob also worked with the Athens-Clarke County Public Defender’s Office under Georgia’s Third-Year Practice Rule, assisting with the representation of the indigent of Athens-Clarke County in Superior Court, appearing in court and handling arraignments and probation hearings. He also served a term as the Vice-President of the University of Georgia’s chapter of the National Lawyers Guild.
Jacob graduated Cum Laude from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2007. He then worked with other attorneys in private practice. Prior to coming to Lipshutz Greenblatt, his litigation experience included acting as lead counsel in a variety of matters, including commercial litigation, domestic cases, tort litigation, and estate matters, with a focus on real estate and insurance litigation. This practice included the representation of Homeowners’ Associations. As a result of his previous litigation practice, Jacob has become an experienced litigator in a relatively short time.
In addition to his active litigation practice, Jacob has also participated in a wide range of appellate cases, and has been a member of the Appellate Practice section of the State Bar of Georgia since 2009.
Jacob joined Lipshutz Greenblatt, LLC in June of 2010. His practice there focused on litigation, working primarily in the areas of covenant enforcement and injunctive relief, as well assisting with post-judgment collection of assessments. He is also married and has two sons and a daughter.
