“We protect and aggressively pursue the interests of individuals throughout California in all types of personal injury and accident cases including car accidents, dog bite and animal attacks, motorcycle accidents, serious injuries and slip and fall accidents.”
– Laura Lynn Davidson, Jacoby & Meyers Partner
The Jacoby & Meyers team includes some of the most professional and capable attorneys in the business, such as Laura Lynn Davidson. She is a Jacoby & Meyers partner who recently received recognition as a Super Lawyer.
She is one of our partners who believe big corporations and insurance companies must always be held accountable for their wrongdoings. Similarly, Ms. Davidson’s practice consists mostly of big injury, wrongful death, motor carrier liability, and premises liability cases. In fact, her solid track record includes millions worth of verdicts and settlements, many of which range between $1 million and $5 million in value.
As a mother, Ms. Davidson brings empathy, compassion, and understanding to the representation of young clients and their parents. She helps them achieve justice through either trial or settlement, but more than that, she guides them through finding their “new normal.” She uses her skill and work ethic to reflect her values and beliefs. Whether it’s by helping a 16-year-old client who got injured in a cliff-jumping activity or a 5-year-old girl who suffered severe brain trauma after an accident at school, Ms. Davidson guides them through the justice system.
Ms. Davidson earned her JD from the University of Southern California Gould School of Law, and her BA in Geography & Environmental Studies from UCLA. During her time at USC, she was the Chief Production Editor of the Southern California Review of Law and Women’s Studies. She is admitted before the following Courts: The United States District Courts for the Central, Northern, and Eastern Districts of California; the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals; the Third Circuit Court of Appeals; and the United States Tax Court. She has also been admitted pro hac vice in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
She helps them achieve justice through either trial or settlement, but more than that, she guides them through finding their “new normal.”
Ms. Davidson is active in her local community as a volunteer at her children’s schools and as a Girl Scout troop leader. She also serves as a member of the Alpha Phi Fraternity’s NPC Delegation and a UCLA Student Mentor. On the other hand, she is involved with the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA), Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC), and the UCLA Alumni Association.

What is a Super Lawyers Rating?
A Super Lawyers rating is one of the most prestigious acknowledgments in the industry. Likewise, it’s a service listing that includes exemplary lawyers from over 70 practice areas. This rating is attained based on a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Also, each nominee goes through a stringent patented selection process, which has multiple phases.
The selection process begins with a nomination, which can be initiated in different ways. A lawyer can also be added to the candidate pool through a managing partner survey, third-party feedback, identification by the Super Lawyers research team, or nomination by peers. Then, the candidate is evaluated based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selection is done on an annual, state-by-state basis. Likewise, the goal is to create a credible, comprehensive, and diverse list of excellent attorneys, which can be useful to anyone who needs legal counsel.
