I was at a difficult time in my life and what seemed as an almost impossible case originally, he was able to get the facts and truth out when my first attorney's weren't giving me any choices or real support..
Michael Clark performed well and exceeded my expectations. He was very knowledgeable and his experience was apparent from start to finish. He provided honest and realistic recommendations considering the unusual circumstance's of my criminal case. He and his staff were always available and they communicated well through email, phone and in person. He worked diligently and with his knowledge and experience I received a favorable outcome. Bottom line, Michael Clark was there for me.
I would highly recommend Michael Clark to anyone who finds themselves in a situation with the law. He will take total care of you and treat you like family.
Mike was referred by my other attorney and was highly recommended to handle my case. When I contacted his office, he was on a business trip. I left my name and phone number and within 4 hours Mike called me from his cell phone from the airport. He had just landed in Seattle after flight delays. We set up an appointment for the next day and met. During our first meeting, my husband and I knew immediately that we had made the right decision and hired Mike on the spot. Mike worked diligently on my case and kept us informed. He was always prompt to court hearing, met with us before and after each hearing to ensure that we fully understood our options and the next steps. Through the entire process, Mike exercised good judgment, was very honest and open about the chances of succeeding to win my case. He conducted through case studies and researched other like cases to find any and all legal precedence. He exercised excellent negotiation skills. Coupled with his knowledge of the law and his ability to negotiate. In the end, my case was dismissed because the truth of the matter is, I did nothing illegal and Mike knew it and represented me as such.
I highly recommend Mike Clark for anyone that is looking for a competent attorney that treats his clients with respect and compassion.
Michael represented me in DUI case. It was very likely that the license was going to be suspended. However the license was not suspended due to Michele’s outstanding job! He reached the best outcome for me. The result was even better than I had hoped. I am grateful for what Michele has done. I liked Michael as a lawyer and as a person. He is very friendly, respectful, and very professional. He replied all my phone calls, emails in a timely manner. He answered all my question, and he gave clear explanations for everything. Thank you again, Mike!
I will always be thankful that I found Michael Clark to help us with our legal situation. He was very upfront with what we were facing and took the time to find out all of the details that would impact the outcome. The resolution of our case was better than we had hoped and this was all due to Mr. Clark's experience and relationships with the courts, prosecutors and judges. I hope I never need his services again but if the need arises, he would be my first choice.
What can I say about Mike that hasn't been said already? Michael kept everything under control for me in a time that I felt the world was surly falling apart. I have never been in trouble before and I was already beating myself up pretty badly for letting something like this happen to me. He did not judge me or make me feel guilty. He felt like a friend and ally that I could count on. He took the weight off of my shoulders. He did everything he could do for my case to help me get the best results possible. He kept me informed, was straight forward and honest, and kept the tasks minimal for me. He made an extremely stressful situation seem simple and quick. One of the things I liked best about him was that he was not pushy, he was friendly, and most importantly, he was himself. He's a different kind of lawyer than most and it will not go unappreciated. I hope you dont' have to go through any situation like I did, but in case you do, I would say Mike is the one you can count on! He reads in between the lines to find anything that will help your case. He is knowledgable and knows the system, judges, and prosecutors. I couldn't be happier about how my case turned out. Thank you Michael!
Michael Clark is a very professional lawyer, knowledgeable in his area of expertise, and is cooperative with his clients. He handled my specific case with complete care and kept my family and I "in the loop" at all times. His instructions to us were very clear and easy to understand, which made the difficult predicament I was in seem painless as he did all of the work. What seemed an almost impossible case originally, he was able to get the case dismissed from court, allowing me to continue on with my life; giving me a second chance practically. I would recommend Michael Clark to anyone who finds themselves in a seemlingly tight situation with the law. He will take total care of you and treat you like family.
Michael Clark performed well and exceeded my expectations. He was very knowledgable and his experience was appearent from start to finish. He provided honest and realistic reccomendations. He and his staff were always available and they communicated well through email, telephonically and in person. He worked diligently and I received a favorable outcome.
My wife and I hired Mr. Clark to assist our daughter with a DV/assault case. I had never worked with a lawyer before and did not know what to expect. He was recommended by a local Bail Bondsman - that was some of the best advice I have received in years. While still maintaining the client/attorney confidendiality, he kept my wife and I informed about the processes much as he could. We were in court twice and both times he was cleary the best lawyer in the room. His expertise, confidence and experience clearly shined. I almost felt sorry for some of the other people who had someone else representing them - the difference is the way he handled himself in court and worked with the judge was cleary evident. In the end, the charges were dismissed - and it is all thanks to Michael. Without him, this would not have happened. Absolutely worth the money. If I ever need an attorney in this area again, I already know the phone number to call.
Needed to find a good yet affordable lawyer for my teenage son who had been cited for theft (shoplifting). Had really no idea where to turn as we had never needed to hire a lawyer for any reason before. After finding this Avvo advice site and reading the reviews of Michael Clark we decided to give him a try and now feel very lucky that we did. Mr. Clark was very approachable, friendly, and very sincere when listening to our concerns about how a theft charge on our sons record could do permanent harm to our sons future. Mike informed us of our options on going forward and what he hoped that he could accomplish for us. He also let us know that there were no certainties in going forward....let's just say he didn't pull any punches and was perfectly honest about the possible downside, something that we totally appreciated. Once the decision was made to retain Michael Clark as our lawyer he and his staff took over from there. All we had to do was provide him with the required information and they handled the rest keeping us totally informed thru-out the process. The final outcome was outstanding, the Theft charge was dismissed and our son received probation for the MIP charge. Believe it or not we actually believe the lessons learned by our son with this experience may turn out to be invaluable in the long run. We could not be happier with the results! Michael Clark gave our son a second chance at life and the rewarding future that he deserves. We cannot thank you enough Mike!
February 2000 was the first time I was represented Michael Clark; I was a minor at the time and facing some very hefty charges. The most important thing to me then was I didn't want to feel alone, Mike was amazing I could call him when ever I wanted and he would talk to me and clam my nerves. I was incarcerated for 2½ months while we went thru the process and he fought for me like a pro, soon I was released with a 1 year deferred disposition. Everything within that year went well and my charges were dropped thanks to Mike.
A couple years later I had gotten a ticket for driving on a suspended which I thought was weird because I didn't even have a license, I felt that I needed legal representation once again I called Mike to get me out of this situation. My court date was set for sometime in December I don't recall the exact date but it was close to Christmas, Mike came in we were in the court room for maybe 10mins my ticket was dropped from driving on suspended to a lesser charge. No time out for this girl and a very small fine I had to pay once again Mike saved the day.
And the last time I had to call upon my favorite Legal Eagle I was in a bit of hot water for protesting outside my old work and I received a restraining order. Mike took care of that first shot NOT GUILTY.
Anytime anyone I know needs a lawyer I always always say Michael Clark hands down the best of the best. I never need to flip thru the phone book or ask a friend "hey do you know a good lawyer" Because I know the best lawyer.
