A remembrance: Walter Davis

While in law school and my first years in practice, I was very fortunate to work with Walter Davis and Bob Trotta.

I think a young lawyer needs to understand the importance of three skills: thinking and expressing oneself clearly, acting responsibly and finding effective resolutions to a client’s problems.

Walter was one of those rare people who possessed all three.

His keen analytical mind saw the essential elements of a problem, and no one spoke or wrote more clearly.
