Born and raised in Aiken, South Carolina, Attorney Davis A. Whitfield-Cargile attended Brevard College, where he received his Bachelors of Arts degree in music. He went straight from undergrad to law school. He received his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Colorado Law School, where he was a member of the Order of the Coif, a top ten graduate, and recipient of the Clinical Education Award.
Davis began his legal career in Charleston, South Carolina as an attorney for the South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control (DHEC). He was staff attorney and acting chief counsel for Ocean and Coastal Resource Management. At DHEC, Davis primarily practiced environmental litigation. Davis took dozens of contested cases to trial and argued important and complex appeals before the South Carolina Supreme Court and Court of Appeals.
In 2011, he married his wife, Perrin, on Capers Island. At the end of that year, they moved to Beaufort, South Carolina, where he entered private practice with McDougall LawFirm. There, Davis primarily represented individuals in personal injury cases and workers compensation claims. He also continued to maintain an environmental practice. In 2014, as the kids began to grow, Davis and Perrin made the decision to move to the mountains of Western North Carolina to settle down and raise their children. They are proud to call Transylvania County home. Prior to opening Whitfield-Cargile Law, PLLC, Davis worked for Conrad & Scherer, LLP, a midsized international law firm with an office in Brevard. At Whitfield-Cargile Law, PLLC, Davis is proud to offer the same zealous representation he has provided his clients throughout his legal career. He represents individuals, businesses, professionals, and other entities in a wide variety of civil matters.
Davis is also involved in the community, serving as a Rotarian, as president of Brevard College’s Alumni Board and ex officio trustee, as a tee ball coach in the Transylvania Little League, and as a musician in the Brevard Community Band.
Outside the office, Davis enjoys raising chickens, gardening, home improvement projects, and enjoying the beautiful outdoors with his family.
