Don Davis’s current practice is principally focused in the role of underwriter’s counsel for affordable housing transactions. Prior to entering private practice, Mr. Davis served as an attorney for the federal government of the United States (U.S.) for over twenty-one years. In that capacity, he began his career as a criminal prosecutor before taking on a role akin to that of general counsel, ultimately serving in Alaska, Texas, the United Kingdom, Germany, Alabama, Afghanistan, Arizona, Hawaii, Washington D.C., and southern Virginia. His federal practice demanded a diverse expertise in a wide variety of legal specialties, to include: government contracts and fiscal law; medical law, including medical malpractice defense, bio-ethics, and biomedical research; tax; international law; intelligence; criminal justice and criminal justice reform; intellectual property; rule of law development and State-Building; law of armed conflict; operations law; cyber; entertainment law; and federal ethics rules and procedures.

He then earned an M.A. in English from San Francisco State University in 1995 before attending Tulane Law School, where he graduated cum laude in 1998. Mr. Davis also holds two master’s degrees from the U.S. Air Force’s Air University in both Operational Art and Science, and Strategic Studies.
