About Me

 


Mark Davis has been recognized as one of the best trial lawyers in Hawaii and in the United States. Mr. Davis, a graduate of Tulane University and Washington University School of Law, has focused his law practice over the last thirty years representing injured victims in cases involving serious personal injury and medical malpractice. He has achieved record verdicts and settlements in Hawaii for numerous cases over the course of his career.

Mr. Davis has been recognized as preeminent in his practice by his fellow attorneys in both the plaintiffs and defense bar. He is listed in The Best Lawyers in America and was elected to membership by his peers in The American College of Trial Lawyers, The International Academy of Trial Lawyers, The International Society of Barristers, and The American Board of Trial Advocates. He is one of only 100 lawyers in America and the only lawyer from Hawaii who is a member of The Inner Circle of Advocates, which requires each member to have tried at least fifty cases to a jury. He is a twenty-year member of The Board of Governors of The American Association for Justice.
