My name is John Davis. I was born in 1944 in Austin, Texas. I graduated from a very small rural High School in Manor, Texas in 1962. My parents had a farm but no money. By working and getting what little help my parents could give me, I managed to graduate from the University of Texas in 1966 and from St Mary's Law School in 1970.
Since 1983 I have been exclusively a bankruptcy lawyer. I have handled thousands of Bankruptcy cases. Some were large and complex. I have taken cases up on appeal to the District Court and Circuit level. I have absolutely no fear or lack of confidence. I will fight for my clients. I usually win contested matters if its possible to win.
The first case I ever tried was a murder case as a young prosecuter. I won it. The last major case a I tried was a big tax dispute with the IRS in Bankruptcy Court. I won it.
I am very quiet and laid back. I do not get excited. Some people think that it is lack of fight or energy. Wrong. I listen very carefully and don't talk a lot-until the time is right.
Another thing about me. I will not dump clients when they run out of money. A lot of lawyers will. Thats just how I am. JPD

Public reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
