Robert L. Davis, currently Of Counsel at DBL Law, has had an accomplished and dedicated career for almost 59 years. After high school, Davis enlisted in the Army and served in the Army of Occupation in Korea. Then, after graduating from U.C. where he was president of his sophomore, junior and senior classes, he was recalled to the army and served a second tour in Korea during the Koren War. His efforts in the Army were recognized with a Bronze Star and Army Commendation medal. His time in the military helped him develop discipline, a strong work ethic, and the interpersonal skills necessary to have a successful career in law. He was discharged from the Army as a captain.
After the military, he worked as a court constable for Judge Simon L. Leis Sr., and then pursued his dream of becoming an attorney. He completed his J.D. and graduated Order of Curia and first in his class from Salmon P. Chase College of Law. He began his legal career at Trabert & Gay (later Gay, Davis & Kelly), and then transitioned to solo practice in 1972. He currently practices in the areas of personal injury, probate, and estate planning.
During his impressive legal career, Robert has tried more than 100 jury trials and cases. He was the recipient of the Cincinnati Bar Association’s John P. Kiely Professionalism Award in 2002 and he has also been inducted in to the American College of Trial Lawyer and the American Board of Trial Advocates. His commitments to our community are numerous and include being an active member of several community organization boards. He continues to volunteer his time by serving as a board member for the Hamilton County Hospital Commission, and was formerly assisting in the cardiac rehab and surgery visitation programs at Good Samaritan Hospital. He also volunteered at Washington Park Elementary (prior to its closing), sharing U.S. history with children in third grade.
Congratulations to Robert L. Davis, recipient of the John L. Muething Lifetime Achievement in Law Award. He said credit should go to his wife Mary Lee (now deceased) and his children for their support and understanding during his career.
