Phil helped me in a very difficult situation of a hit and run, which involved some corruption by the police. Although I highly respect law enforcement my case was clearly fraudulent. With Phil's DA experience and is ability to be an excellent voice for me. He was able to work with law enforcement. Not only did my case go smoothly, it saved me the devastating charges that would have caused the loss of my drivers license. I couldn't have done it with out his help and expertise. He is ethical, professional and easy to work with . Thank You Philip Clark.
Phil Clark took my 3rd DUI to trial and we won. I was always informed of what was happening with my case and I always felt secure with his decisions on how to proceed. Phil fought for me and I will be forever grateful. I felt and still do, that he honestly cared about the outcome of my case and completely committed himself to winning. Phil treated me with respect and never seemed judgmental or pushy. Some lawyers are so set on doing things their way that you get the feeling that you are just a payday, not with Phil. I would recommend his services to anyone 100 percent.
I had a great experience with Phil Clark. I would recommend him to anyone.
Generally unprepared for court appearances. I would guess that his entire preparation was done while he sat conversing with me. In court, he often paused for very long periods while examining witnesses (so he could think of a question) - this even happened for his own witnesses! His notes for court were very disorganized and generally sloppy.
He is a nice guy and generally knowledgeable about court procedures..... but that doesn't cut it. If you want somebody to hold your hand while you plead guilty, then Phil is your guy. Otherwise look elsewhere.
.... A prime example of the old saying "if you fail to prepare, you should prepare to fail".
