    Eric Davis has an incredible way in the courtroom. Often handling some of the toughest cases successfully, Eric is a master trial lawyer. He knows how to deal with people and juries, in part because few people care as much as Eric does. He is an asset to the legal community and someone that I am proud to call a colleague.
