I just decided that I was going to kind of go serve the clients that I liked to work with, and not have to deal with the bigger clients.—Davis Senseman

For this week’s podcast, Aaron and Sam discuss whether lawyers should learn to code, and Sam talks with Davis Senseman about what it is like to create a small business law practice from the ground up.

Davis founded Davis Law Office in 2010 after nearly a decade of practicing in the corporate department of a larger law firm. Armed with this experience and knowledge of legal solutions used by large entities, she set out to bring the same level of service to smaller organizations and individuals. Davis now teaches the Business Law Clinic at Mitchell | Hamline School of Law and serves on the boards of PFund Foundation, the Midwest’s only LGBTQ community foundation and Still Kickin, a non-profit dedicated to building a braver, more supportive world.
