We Represent DUI Crash Victims

Some attorneys who handle drunk driving personal injury cases also represent drunk drivers in criminal cases. Attorney Chris Davis only represents victims of impaired drivers, not the DUI offenders who caused horrific accidents and injuries. 

During his career as a prosecutor for King County, Mr. Davis brought hundreds of DUI offenders to justice. Today he helps the victims of drunk driving collisions and their families gain financial compensation for the harms caused by DUI offenders. Mischelle Davis, Chris's wife, is a leading volunteer with Washington State Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and a member of MADD's state advisory board.

Davis Law Group, P.S. founder Chris Davis is one of the most respected and recognized civil litigation lawyers practicing in Washington State.  Davis Law Group has been named Best Injury Law Firm in Washington State by AI Dispute Resolution Awards

A Drunk Driving Crash Is Not An 'Accident'

Like our friends at Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), at Davis Law Group we believe that there is no such thing as a ‘drunk driving accident’. Drunken driving collisions result from carelessness or deliberate dangerous driving (under the influence of alcohol), not from circumstances beyond the control of the at-fault driver. Car crashes that are caused by a drunk driver are entirely avoidable, and we believe in doing everything possible to stop drunk drivers before they cause injuries on the road.

"On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, I would like to express my deepest appreciation of Davis Law Group's generous support of MADD..."
-Jan Withers, MADD National President
