Risa grew up in Portland and was first introduced to legal argument and thinking as a member of the Grant High School mock trial and constitution teams. While she enjoyed and excelled at these experiences, Risa only considered becoming a lawyer after experiencing the importance of advocacy first-hand while helping a family member navigate a complex medical crises. Risa decided to become an attorney so that she could help others with her strong advocacy skills.
Risa graduated from Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon, where she won several Moot Court-Mock Trial competitions. Risa clerked at Washington County District Attorney’s office for two years, where she gained extensive courtroom and trial experience. Since her admission to the Bar, Risa has worked in several areas of law including crime victim rights, employment law, family law, student rights, civil rights, estate planning and business advising. Risa is proud of her pro bono legal work and has been recognized twice by the Oregon State Bar New Lawyers Division for this service.
In November 2011, Risa decided to strike out on her own and start her own practice. After five years of owning and operating the small law firm, Davis Law Offices, Risa downsized to solo-practice and is now practicing as Risa Davis, Attorney at Law, LLC. Risa views her relationships with clients as partnerships and offers innovative, personalized, and pragmatic advice while vigorously protecting client interests both in and out of the courtroom.
When away from the office, Risa enjoys time with her family and friends, exploring new places, spending time in nature, and cheering on her favorite professional basketball and football teams. She is an avid reader (and audio-book consumer) and is always happy to talk about the latest book she is reading. Risa is also a huge Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica fan, and isn’t afraid to let her nerd-flag fly.
