From 1982 until 1996, Davis practiced law in West Virginia, concentrating on employee benefits and domestic relations. In 1996 she was elected to fill an unexpired term, and was re-elected to a full twelve-year term in 2000 and 2012; becoming the first woman re-elected to statewide office in West Virginia. Davis served one year terms as Chief Justice in 1998, 2002, 2006, 2007, 2010 and 2014. Davis is currently the senior justice on the court.
Davis is featured in Laurence Leamer's 2013 non-fiction book, The Price of Justice: A True Story of Greed and Corruption in Coal Country. In December 2014, ABC News reported on controversies surrounding Robin Davis: her ties to attorney Michael Fuller, who helped her raise $37,000 for her campaign; and the sale of a Lear Jet by her husband Scott Segal. The investigation raises questions about conflicts of interest and ethical decisions made by the then-Chief Justice.
Davis is married to Scott Segal. They have one son, Oliver.
