Volunteer attorney Jimmy Davis was admitted to the Florida Bar in October, 2012. He began volunteering with Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida (CLSMF) in January, 2013. Since his involvement with CLSMF’s Volunteer Lawyers Project he has provided legal advice, pro se assistance and full representation to 122 clients with housing and other issues. In 2013 Jimmy received the Judge Robert K. Rouse, Young Lawyer Division Pro Bono Service Award. This award is given to recognize the pro bono contributions of young lawyers.
When asked why he does pro bono work, Jimmy stated, “Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida provides me with the opportunity to test how seriously I take the last part of the Oath of Attorney. It removes me from the cloistered environment created by private practice, a place many of the underprivileged refrain from visiting because they believe themselves to be undesirable as clients.”
Jimmy holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering Physics from Embry-Riddle and Masters of Science in Physics from the University of Central Florida. He received his Juris Doctorate from Barry University School of Law.
Prior to becoming an attorney Jimmy worked as an Academic Researcher at the University of Central Florida, Florida Space Institute, Embry-Riddle and NASA. He has also worked as a Patient Care Coordinator at Curascript Specialty Pharmacy and Field Organizer for Organizing for America.
