For most people, it wouldn’t be easy to walk away from a great job with a large firm, then launch your own company, knowing you will be working harder than ever but, on the flip side, calling your own shots.
But that’s precisely what Jess Davis did in 2007, partnering with fellow attorney Chad Adams to form the Atlanta-based personal injury practice Davis Adams. Thus far, the duo has recovered more than $40 million for clients in various litigation areas, with medical negligence currently among the most active cases.
Eight years into the practice, Davis is experiencing a homecoming of sorts. The Columbus native, 46, who grew up in the Lakebottom Park area and graduated from Columbus State University, is opening an office inside the Corporate Center on 12th Street in downtown Columbus.
