also known as Lee Davis
I represent people in federal and state court: from investigation to trial. 25+ years experience.federal and state court representation from investigation to trial.
I have been representing people in court since 1986. I have successfully represented clients in trial and appellate courts throughout the country and I regularly try cases before state and federal court juries.
My career has been varied as I began as a private defense attorney in Boston and then worked for a number of years as a prosecutor when I moved to Tennessee in the early 1990's. Since 1998 I have been in private practice at Davis & Hoss, PC.
Representative cases have included such varied subjects as federal fraud and white-collar cases to innovative homicide cases. I was the first attorney in the United States to introduce mitochondrial DNA as evidence in State vs. Ware. I have been lead counsel in more than 150 jury trials and I have been lead counsel in six death penalty cases.
As as Assistant District Attorney, I prosecuted serious felony cases including cold case homicide investigations and more than twenty first degree murder cases.
I ocassionaly serve as Special Prosecutor or as a Special Judge in criminal proceedings in Tennessee.
In civil actions I have represented clients in age discrimination, retaliatory discharge, negligence, accidents, child injury, real estate, and complex personal injury cases.
I have taught Criminal and Constitutional Law at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and previously taught trial practice as an adjunct professor at the University of Tennessee School of Law in Knoxville.
Outside of work I serve on the Allied Arts board as treasure and Chattanooga Boys Choir board as president. My wife, Heather, and I put on the Chattanooga Bike Camp each June teaching kids with disabilities how to ride a bike. I serve on the board of the camp's parent organization--Lose the Training Wheels. I am an active member of the Chattanooga Track Club and a race director of the Signal Mountain Pie Run 10k.
