Summer Davidson Receives “Up and Coming Lawyer” Award

L&E associate attorney Summer Davidson was honored by Missouri Lawyers Media, when it recently selected attorneys from around the state as part of its 2022 Up & Coming Awards. This event, held this year in St. Charles, Mo., recognizes early-career lawyers who demonstrate professional excellence while making a positive impact on their profession and communities.

Summer practices from the firm’s Kansas City office, where she focuses her practice on dangerous products, premises liability, and other personal injury matters.  Before joining the firm, Summer was a member of the City Attorney’s office in Kansas City, Mo., where she represented the City in a variety of cases.  These included tort litigation, workers’ compensation, contract disputes, assault and battery, and tax.

Focusing her early career in family law, Summer represented clients in dissolutions, modifications, child custody, and ex-parte actions.  Summer is a board member of the House of Hope in Lexington, Missouri, a nonprofit resource dedicated to emergency shelter from and awareness of domestic and sexual assault.

The annual Up & Coming awards celebrate outstanding legal professionals who are 40 or younger or who are within their first 10 years of practice. Honorees have demonstrated professional accomplishment, skill and leadership beyond their years, as well as extraordinary commitment to their communities through volunteer service and leadership.
