Andre M. Davis served for thirty years as a judge on four courts: the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, the United States District court, the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, and the Maryland state District Court. Before his appointment as a judge, he had served as an appellate attorney for the Civil Rights Division for the U.S. Department of Justice and as an Assistant United States Attorney in Baltimore. Upon retiring from the bench, the Mayor of Baltimore appointed Davis as City Solicitor. In that role, which he held until March 2020, he led the City Law Department, comprised of more than one hundred lawyers and support personnel, and served as one of five members of the City’s Board of Estimates, the municipal spending authority. Davis received a BA in American history from the University of Pennsylvania and graduated cum laude from the University of Maryland School of Law.
