Associate Attorney

Salvatore “Sal” Davi is an Associate Attorney for the Law Offices of Thomas S. Tisdale. Hailing from Richmond, Virginia, Sal graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.A. in Foreign Affairs from the Woodrow Wilson Department of Politics. While at UVA and through an internship with a U.S. Senator, Sal gained the understanding that legal systems serve as the foundation for political structures and saw firsthand how the law impacts people at every level.

After graduating from UVA, Sal spent a year at a reputable law firm in Richmond. Being exposed to a wide array of legal matters, assisting a diverse clientele, and learning about the daily operations of a mid-size law firm affirmed his interest in pursuing a legal career. Sal went on to attend the Charleston School of Law, where he obtained his J.D.. While in law school, Sal clerked for a well-established firm in Charleston, gaining insight into a new dimension of the legal practice from the plaintiff’s perspective, and assisting with the life of a case in lieu of or prior to litigation, with the end-goal being to negotiate and settle personal injury claims with insurance providers on behalf of affected clients. After law school, Sal spent a year assisting with the spearheading of the same firm’s newly-developed class action litigation division.

Sal has joined the Law Offices of Thomas S. Tisdale in 2021 and is highly-devoted to assisting with the legal needs of clients and employing his skills to the resolution of all legal matters.
