HOUSTON, May 04, 2017 -- "I wanted to help people," replied Houston criminal defense attorney Neal Davis in a recent interview when asked why he wanted to become a lawyer.
"I always admired lawyers who stood up to power, whether they were criminal defense attorneys or plaintiff's lawyers. I always rooted for the underdog."
Davis, a highly regarded attorney and long-time defender of his clients' rights in high-profile cases in Texas and nationwide, was approached by the online legal directory service Enjuris to be featured in their blog.
Davis told the Enjuris reporter he believes every young lawyer should seek a mentor, which is why he spent the beginning of his career with legendary Texas trial attorney Dick DeGuerin. There he represented individuals and corporations under criminal investigation or prosecution, as well as regulatory enforcement actions and select civil matters.
When questioned about why he decided to open his own law firm, Davis replied: "It was time to move on. At some point, you have to get out from under the shade of a great tree, and [Dick] understood that, too. He's a great and generous man."
Since then, Davis has built a name for himself by handling thousands of cases across the state of Texas and nationwide, including making history in a U.S. Supreme Court case (Salinas v. Texas).
In addition to criminal law, Davis has also established a reputation as a skilled personal injury attorney in Texas, helping obtain compensation for his clients when it is the only remedy available.
As Davis told Enjuris: "People think that personal injury lawyers ‘wear pinky rings, that they fly around in personal jets, just out to make money, file frivolous lawsuits—things of that nature.' To Davis, nothing could be further from the truth."
