Eugene B. Davis, Jr. is President of Eugene B. Davis, Jr., P.C., a Wilmington, North Carolina law firm/professional corporation. Eugene, or “Gene” to many, a North Carolina native originally from Jacksonville, North Carolina, conducted his undergraduate studies from 1983 to 1986 at Davidson College as a Lunsford Richardson Honor Scholar, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in three years cum laude, simultaneously earning two additional Bachelor’s Degrees with highest honors from North Carolina Wesleyan College. Gene then earned his law degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1989. After a few years of active duty in the Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps of the United States Navy, during which time he served variously as a criminal prosecutor, command services attorney, and a claims attorney and “saw the world,” Gene returned to North Carolina, settling in Wilmington and opening his law practice. Gene has four children: an oldest son, Spencer, born in 2000, and a set of triplets born on 3/3/03 (Sophie, Chloe, and Andrew)! Gene continues to serve in our country’s Navy Reserve as a JAG Corps Captain.
