“Litigation is more than a case, it is a client’s scientific legacy. A legacy I will also cherish and defend.”

~Dara T. Jeffries

Contact Dara T. Jeffries

Dara is an attorney in the Atlanta office, focusing on intellectual property litigation. Her favorite quotation is “I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference,” by Robert Frost. Dara's background shows that, indeed, this has become her motto in life. She came to HGD with a chemical engineering degree from MIT, and a biomedical engineering degree from Columbia University. Although she is a scientist at heart, focusing her Master’s degree research on reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament through medical device technology, Dara found that hard science and a laboratory bench were not her calling. Rather, protecting the inventions resulting from years of hard research by her scientific colleagues became her true passion. While in law school, she realized that protection of intellectual property was not enough, and Dara discovered a flair and affinity for litigation practice through her participation in Student Trial Lawyers Association. Following her desire to become a patent litigator, Dara’s path took her to Heninger Garrison Davis, LLC. She fully intends to continue following the road less traveled in providing innovative litigation tailored to each client’s need, rather than simply following a previously laid pattern. When not advocating for clients, Dara indulges in her hobbies of weekly soccer games, catching up on the latest novels or historical research, or simply spending time with her family members and friends.
