Review Adam Davis

About Me

 I'm  an associate at Davis & Young and involved in all aspects of the firm's employment and tort law litigation.


Before joining Davis & Young, I served as a judicial extern to the Hon. Jeremy Fogel, Judge for the United States District Court, Northern District of California.  I also interned for the Hon. Socrates Manoukian, Judge for the Santa Clara County Superior Court.  I helped indigent clients in the wake of Hurricane Katrina as a volunteer at New Orleans Legal Assistance (NOLAC) and represented and advised underprivileged community members at the Katharine and George Alexander Community Law Center in San Jose.


I'm also actively involved in alumni-student connection programs at Bellarmine College Preparatory and have lectured to students at Santa Clara University School of Law and Lincoln Law School in San Jose.
