Former US Representative Artur Davis has returned to the practice of law to represent employees facing discrimination in the workplace. Mr. Davis’ practice in HKM’s Atlanta office will focus on litigating anti-discrimination cases in federal courts as well as appellate advocacy in the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
Mr. Davis’ decade long political career enabled him to advance the interests of workers on several policy fronts including sponsorship of the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which expanded the rights of women to equitable pay, and advocacy for legislation to strengthen the rights of veterans and reservists seeking to reclaim their civilian jobs after serving our country. Prior to his time in elected office, he earned a reputation as a dynamic and creative attorney for employees forced to endure race and sex discrimination. Mr. Davis proved he could achieve successful results even in the most challenging cases, drawing on his extensive experience as a federal prosecutor and criminal defense lawyer to tell his client’s stories.
Mr. Davis is an honors graduate of Harvard Law School, where he was the second African American to win the award of Best Oral Advocate in the Ames Moot Court Competition. Mr. Davis is admitted to practice law in Alabama, and he has applied for admission into the Georgia bar.
