David Clark is a respected attorney and former judge. He is the author of "Search and Seizure for Georgia Law Enforcement" and "101 Ways to Beat a Marijuana Charge in Georgia."
Over the twenty years of his legal career, he has given dozens of lectures on constitutional law, trial practice, and the admissibility of scientific evidence in court. He is a founding member of the Georgia Innocence Project, serves on the executive committee of the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and is past President of the Criminal Law Section of the Gwinnett County Bar Association.
His track record in the courtroom is legendary. In 1999, he and his partner, Jessica Towne, won Love v. State, which struck down Georgia's DUI-marijuana law as unconstitutional. That same year, they kept laser speeding guns from being used in Georgia. Since then, Dave has won numerous key illegal search cases, defining the limits on what police can do while fighting the so-called "war on drugs." He has taken other famous cases involving separation of church and state, and privacy rights. Last year, he left his post as Magistrate judge in order to go back to the courtroom full time and return to legal rights activism. His law practice, Clark & Towne PC, is located in Lawrenceville, in suburban Atlanta, GA.

I endorse this lawyer. David is well-versed in the ins and outs of criminal law in the State of Georgia and is a tenacious litigator in the courtroom. David is dedicated to each of his clients and fights hard to protect their rights. I highly recommend David Clark.
