Elijah Davis has dedicated much of his practice to defending employers, insurers, and third-party administrators in claims brought pursuant to Georgia’s Workers’ Compensation Act. Before joining Stanton Law, Elijah worked at one of Georgia’s largest insurance defense firms. The majority of his current workers’ compensation practice is representing uninsured employers.
He also has considerable experience with the Federal Tax Code, wage garnishments, mechanic’s liens, and issues concerning the FMLA, ADA, and FLSA.
Prior to earning his J.D. from Georgia State University College of Law, Elijah received a B.S. in Human Services from Kennesaw State University, where he also studied French, Spanish, and German. He holds master’s degrees in Health Administration and Business Administration from Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business. Elijah is also a licensed real estate salesperson. This provides valuable insight with issues related to HOA disputes, general real estate matters, and other short-term rental concerns.
Elijah’s diverse educational background helps him navigate complex rules and regulations for his clients, as he regularly represents clients before state agencies, including administrative hearings before the State Board of Workers’ Compensation and the Georgia Department of Revenue. He has deposed claimants and expert witnesses, as well as defended claims for catastrophic injuries and death benefits.
Throughout his career, Elijah has settled workers’ compensation claims worth millions of dollars. He is a Henning-trained mediator and arbitrator and is registered with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution.
“Alternative dispute resolution through mediation is an important aspect of the claims process. I seek to understand each party’s values and concerns to determine how those might impact the mediation process.”

He also spent a few years in Seattle where he learned about sustainable agricultural methods that he is now using to create a permaculture food forest.
