Attorney Laura Davis Ultimate Trial Advocacy


Laura C. Davis joined the Skinner Law Firm in 2008 and became a partner in 2010. She grew up in Gainesville, Florida, and obtained her B.S. in psychology from the University of Florida. She graduated from WVU College of Law in 1998. Ms. Davis is admitted to practice in West Virginia and is a member of the West Virginia State Bar, the American Association for Justice, and the West Virginia Association for Justice. Ms. Davis’ practice focuses on bad faith insurance and complex litigation.

Civil litigation often includes many complex issues that need to be resolved.  It becomes “complex litigation” when the case involves multiple jurisdictions and/or multiple parties.  It can involve more depositions, more documents, more witnesses, more experts, and more filings.  When more than one jurisdiction is involved, then more laws apply, such as state and federal and/or another state’s laws.  Lastly, more critical thinking and analysis is needed to plan ahead, anticipate, and handle these complex cases.

Laura had years of experience practicing as an insurance defense attorney prior to joining Skinner Law Firm.  She knows defense tactics and how to work against them.  Laura, along with the team at Skinner Law Firm, has successfully represented many clients with complex lawsuits against insurance companies.  Whether you believe you have a significant case or a complex case, contact Skinner Law Firm for a free consultation.

Laura and her colleagues at Skinner Law Firm are committed to excellence in continuing legal education for the benefit of all West Virginians.

Laura Davis was very helpful to me and my daughter throughout the process. She was clear as she explained the process of the claim. She provided updates each step. Laura took the time to explain anything I did not understand. Her approach was professional without being pushy or harsh. I felt very comfortable working with her. We were grateful for Laura’s soft approach since we had not gone through this before. Because of Laura’s work on this case, my daughter has been able to go to college and build her future.

Recommended With Pleasure

My wife and I are pleased to relate to you that were it not for Ms Davis’ expertise in insurance matters we could easily have been left with out any savings. We were sued by an individual who had been convicted of abusing our son when he was a youth. This individual claimed we violated his civil rights. We were forced to defend in a distant location and were totally ignorant of federal procedure. Ms Davis was able to convince the insurance company that had previously denied our request for coverage to accept the coverage and we were able to successfully obtain local counsel and defend the suit.

Not too soon after successfully having the federal court throw out the suit the insurance company attempted to cancel our coverage accusing my wife and me of actually being perpetrators. We put the matter in Ms Davis’ hands and she and her law partner were successful in not only getting the insurance company to rescind the cancellation but obtained a fair settlement in our behalf.

All of the above was accomplished with the greatest sensitivity and personal attention. They understood how emotional our lives were over this and led us with great care and understanding always letting our wishes be the final answer. We are very pleased to have this opportunity to let others know what a wonderful lawyer and person is Laura Christine Davis.  By Gregory via Avvo on June 9, 2015
