Josh Davis is a seasoned litigator who joined Boyle Brasher LLC in 2015.  Prior to joining the firm, Josh practiced for several years with two large litigation firms in St. Louis, where he honed his trial skills and focused his practice on transportation, product liability, and fire and explosion litigation. Josh has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in complex litigation matters, including multi-vehicle transportation accidents, catastrophic fire cases, wrongful death products liability cases, severe injury premise liability matters, and high exposure insurance coverage cases. 

Josh is routinely responsible for accident scene management and inspection, managing expert analysis, and the related litigation tasks from inception through trial.  He prides himself on early case assessment and evaluation and strives to provide a detailed evaluation of potential exposure coupled with recommendations for future handling and strategies for resolution as soon as possible after receiving any assignment.  Drawing from actual trial experience as both lead trial attorney and as second chair, Josh is able to provide a comprehensive set of litigation skills, aggressively representing client interests while balancing the client’s financial realities and unique business interests. 

In addition to serving his clients zealously, Josh has been selected by his peers and Super Lawyers Missouri & Kansas as a “Rising Star” among Missouri lawyers in both 2013 and 2014.  He serves on the Board of Directors of Peter & Paul Community Services and is a member of the Transportation Lawyers Association. When not practicing law, Josh enjoys wine, sport shooting and live music.  Josh and his wife live in Olivette, Missouri with their young son.
