Davida crafts legal arguments with purpose, keeping the desired and feasible outcome for each case in mind and always focusing on the big picture.
Davida received her J.D. from Harvard University and began her legal career in New York City where she represented clients in complex litigation matters—including class actions and multimillion-dollar antitrust and government enforcement actions. As part of her pro bono and appellate practice, Davida represented amici in the Supreme Court, Second Circuit, Eastern District of New York, and state courts across the country.
Davida moved to Minneapolis to clerk for United States District Judge Patrick J. Schiltz. Undeterred by sub-zero temperatures, Davida now calls the Midwest home and is eager to apply her skill set to your legal issues.
