Since 2004, Aglaia Davis has been performing in-depth research, brief-writing, and case analysis for small firms and solo practitioners in all areas of, inter alia, litigation, criminal practice, matrimonial, maritime law, and immigration. She has briefed and argued (successfully) an appeal to the Second Circuit, resulting in remand of an immigration matter to the Board of Immigration Appeals; briefed and argued a high profile criminal (manslaughter) case to the Maine Supreme Court; and strategized and briefed motions in a large-scale entertainment litigations in federal district court.
Davis’ work also includes assessing and spearheading litigation cases; drafting demand letters (resulting, in one entertainment case, in a $50,000 settlement on a questionably released breach of contract claim without litigation); meeting and dealing with clients; retaining expert witnesses; and seeing cases through all facets of discovery. Davis has opposed motions from some of the biggest law firms in the country, performing tireless research, sifting through hundreds of documents, and yielding positive results.
Aglaia Davis’ excellence in research and writing began in law school, where she was a champion of the Moot Court Honor Society, winning a competition before members of the Delaware Supreme Court and Best Brief and Runner-Up Best Oralist at the National Moot Court Competition. During law school, she also interned with Justice David B. Saxe of the Appellate Division, First Department; and, immediately thereafter, clerked for one year with Judge Ashrafi of the New Jersey Superior Court, Criminal Division. After researching and drafting opinions for judges, Aglaia was in a unique position to offer her services to litigators.
Davis is available for consultation on all facets of litigation practice, including trial and deposition preparation, expert witness location/retention, case strategy, pre- and post-trial motions, appeal, and court appearances, hearings, depositions, and trial. She is available on a short- or long-term basis, and is able to adhere to the tightest of deadlines. Most – if not all – work can be performed remotely. Writing samples of all varieties are available upon request. Extremely reasonable rates.
