About Me

Al Clarke is an experienced trial attorney who focuses his practice on catastrophic injury cases, with a particular emphasis on medical malpractice, pharmaceutical drug and medical device litigation.  He is a strategic litigator whose belief in early and aggressive case development has allowed him to obtain outstanding results for his clients.

Prior to joining Patrick Malone & Associates, Mr. Clarke practiced at one of the nation’s largest insurance defense firms, where he specialized in medical malpractice litigation.  During these years, Mr. Clarke defended health care professionals, including doctors and hospitals, in complex medical malpractice cases.  He has significant experience in all aspects of litigation, from preliminary case investigation through trial and appeal.  Now he brings this experience to work on behalf of clients who have been seriously injured. 

Mr. Clarke also has experience working inside the pharmaceutical industry, which gives him unique insight into representing clients injured by dangerous drugs and other medical products.   After graduating from the University of Richmond with a degree in business administration, he spent several years working for one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical manufacturers.   He then attended George Mason University School of Law on a scholarship and graduated with honors.  While in law school, Mr. Clarke served as the Vice President of the Moot Court Board and competed in a number of moot court competitions.   Mr. Clarke won First Place in the annual National First Amendment Moot Court Competition held at Vanderbilt Law School.  He also won First Place in the annual George Mason School of Law Trial Advocacy Competition.  Following law school, Mr. Clarke spent one year as a judicial clerk to the Judges of the Circuit Court for Arlington County, Virginia.
