Joshua M. Davis - Dick Thornburgh Prize for Legal Service - 2019

During Law School Joshua Davis worked at Neighborhood Legal Services on landlord-tenant cases.  He has interviewed, advised, and assisted over fifty low-income tenants facing eviction from both private and subsidized housing.  This experience afforded Mr. Davis the opportunity to litigate on behalf of many of those tenants at Magisterial District Courts and in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas. 

As a native to the Pittsburgh area, Joshua has witnessed the city's technological and economic transformation.  Although this development has had significant benefits for the city, there have been serious housing-related consequences as well. Serving as an advocate for those in need with Neighborhood Legal Services work with low-income residents gives some control back to those who otherwise would not have an option.

Joshua plans to dedicate himself to public interest and legal service work throughout his legal career.

Congratulations, Joshua!
