Edward J. Davis

Ted Davis is a lawyer licensed in the District of Columbia who works of counsel to the Claiborne Firm. Ted was drawn to the firm by its commitment to civil rights and its willingness to stand up for people who have been treated unjustly.

Ted brings to the job more than 15 years of experience at the intersection of politics, policy and the press.

An Emmy Award-winning former television news producer, Ted has covered three presidential campaigns: the re-election of George W. Bush, the history-making election of Barack Obama, and the unexpected victory of Donald Trump.

Ted has also worked closely with elected officials at the highest levels of state and local government. He served as special assistant to California Gov. Gray Davis, press secretary to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and director of strategic communications for Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.

Ted has been called “smart on policy” by the Los Angeles Times, a “polished communicator…forceful in demanding more accountability” by the Daily News, and someone who “knows the political world in and out” by The Week magazine.

A member of the Bar of the U.S. Supreme Court, Davis earned his undergraduate degree from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service and his law degree from The Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law.

Davis is married to Emily Turner, a senior editor for Island Press, the leading not-for-profit publisher on sustainability and the environment. They own a home in the Parkside neighborhood of Savannah that they share with a lively little Shih Tzu named Bernie.
