About Josh Davis

A Powerful Instrument in the Pursuit of Justice

Where It All Started

After 7 years of practice and over 25 successful jury trials, Josh Davis started the Josh Davis Law Firm in April 2013. His practice focuses on contractual and commercial litigation, insurance coverage and bad faith claims, personal injury litigation, and appeals. From an early age Josh knew he wanted to be a trial lawyer. The lawyer heroes he read about and watched on T.V. showed how a jury’s verdict allows men and women to prevail over the most powerful interests in society. Over time and during his career Josh has had the opportunity to see justice done in courtrooms all across the country. These experiences have led to an even greater passion for representing individuals and small businesses in the courtroom every day.

Josh Davis Today

Since graduating from law school Josh has worked at other law firms in Texas where he has been given the freedom to develop a thriving litigation docket. These opportunities provided the chance to gain valuable courtroom experience that Josh brings with him as he begins this exciting new journey.

After becoming a lawyer, Josh has had the privilege of trying many cases to verdict. From representing a small business in a $2.5 million breach of contract case in Houston, to being an injured railroad workers advocate in a Denver courtroom, Josh has enjoyed great success when a jury has been asked to decide a case. As any lawyer will tell you, success in the courtroom is not just about lawyerly talent and skill, but also about the facts and the individuals who are the subject of trial. Thankfully, Josh has always had wonderful clients with compelling facts that have made the difference when a jury has reached its decision.

Commitment To Community

Josh is also committed to giving back to his community. He serves on the board of the Houston Branch of the International Dyslexia Association, a nonprofit group that advocates for the education and care of dyslexic children in Houston and around the world. Josh serves in a variety of bar organizations, including the Texas Trial Lawyers Association as a member of the Amicus Curae Committee, the Texas Association of Civil Trial and Appellate Specialists, and as a Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation. Josh is also committed to giving away, at a minimum, 10% of his professional time in pro bono matters in which the client does not pay a fee.

Josh is married to his beautiful wife Afsheen. Together they have their beautiful children, Alayna, Nahla, Rayana, and Caleb.

In addition to his courtroom experience, Josh became Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Personal Injury Trial Law in 2012. With over 70,000 lawyers licensed to practice in Texas, fewer than 2.5% are board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law.

Additionally, Josh has also had the privilege of being an appellate advocate in numerous cases that have become part of Texas law and help decide future cases. These are a few examples of those decisions:
