About me

In 1974 I met my wife, Donna, on a blind date at the University of Texas.  We were married my second year in law school, in 1978, and have been together on life's journey, ever since.  She has given me two fine sons, Nathan, born in 1984, and Nicholas, born in 1989.  Nathan graduated from Texas Tech University in 2006, and Nick graduated from  Ole Miss in 2013.  When I am not busy with the practice of law, I greatly enjoy spending time with my wife and sons, and grandchild.  I enjoy golf, bird hunting, and attending Texas Ranger and Dallas Stars games with my wife and sons.  As often as we can, we like to travel as a family.  When we cannot, a backyard barbecue is an ample substitute.  Politcally I am a Regan Conservative, I was raised Lutheran and still consider my faith to be the most important thing in my life. 


My personal philosophy is that lawyers should help facilitate a solution, not be part of the problem.  I believe that the purpose behind litigation is to resolve a dispute, and not to prolong the "process" for personal gain.

  • Michael Douglas Clark

    Having worked with Clark on a large number of matters, I can state with complete sincerity that he is one of the most - if not the most - creative and intelligent lawyers I've ever known. Clark is able to think "outiside the box" and craft strategies and resolutions to sticky problems that would confound or discourage others. He is honest and ethical above reproach, and I would not hesitate to hire Clark to represent me should I ever find myself in need of an attorney. Clark mentored me, taught me a lot, and I truly consider myself lucky to practice law with him.
