Simply the Best
From the moment of my first consultation with Tom, he gave me confidence in his ability to help me through a challenging set of circumstances. He was patient, informative, and confident, and his calm demeanor helped me to navigate the journey with ease. Tom is responsive and caring, and he is able to separate emotion from task. His legal expertise coupled with his humanity helped make a difficult set of circumstances far more manageable. He truly is the best!

Highly Recommend
Attorney Clark represented me as plaintiff in a PFA case regarding my former spouse. Mr. Clark managed my case proficiently through multiple continuances and communicated in a timely fashion. During the hearing, he was very professional yet aggressive and had done his homework with regard to cases and decisions made elsewhere that applied to my case. I was granted the PFA; if I wasn't, it would not have been because of my representation. I am grateful to Mr. Clark for his hard work and attention to detail.

Great Attorney
Tom is the type of attorney you need on your side. Hands down the best. He truly cares about you and your financial future. He is thorough, prepared, and thinks of all avenues and obstacles that may arise. He explains everything in detail and keeps you informed on every aspect of the case. If you are looking for someone to be aggressive, knowledgeable, kind to your feelings Tom is your lawyer. I recommend him 100%.

Fast and Flexible
This firm was very flexible and easy to work with particularly in scheduling an initial consultation over the phone. The firm was also professional and expedient in drafting the pre-marital agreement, responding to my input promptly while providing expert advice.

I highly recommend Attorney Clark and his team. My head was not in the game when I needed a divorce and custody attorney. Avvo reviews convinced me that Attorney Clark was who I needed to hire. Everything you are reading on here is true. He listened, remembered all of the details, always made sure that I understood the possible outcomes and professionally communicated to opposing council.

Professional Excellence & Compassion
I explored the potential of working with three different family law attorneys before I committed to working with Thomas Clark. The initial impression during our first consultation was that he was genuine, kind, caring, and knowledgeable. Tom is excellent at looking at a case from multiple angles and giving both context and details on best practice. He was able to navigate complexity and unexpected variables during multiple civil cases, as well as a criminal matter. His expertise and communication skills helped articulate the process of separation and divorce proceedings that at times were overwhelming. He was available and responsive, adding a sense of legal support necessary for journeying through heart wrenching decisions. Because of the effects of divorce on families, finances, and children, having someone who was professional yet compassionate was a necessity for me. Tom was both. Without hesitation, I highly suggest partnering with Tom through one of life’s most difficult experiences, divorce.

Highly Recommend
For the past year, I have had the privilege of working with Attorney Clark on a highly confrontational co-parenting legal matter, and I cannot express enough how grateful I am for the outstanding support and expertise provided throughout the entire process. His compassionate and empathetic approach immediately put me at ease and assured me that I had a dedicated advocate who genuinely cared about the well-being of my child and the resolution of my case. He showed extensive knowledge of family law, meticulously navigated the intricacies of my case, provided strategic guidance and ensured that my rights and the best interests of my child was prioritized at all times. What truly stood out was Attorney Clarks exceptional communication skills. He kept me informed at every stage of the legal proceedings, explaining complex legal concepts in a way that was easy to understand. His transparency not only empowered me with knowledge but also helped ease the understanding of the lengthy legal process. Thanks to Attorney Clark and his tireless efforts, we achieved a favorable resolution that prioritized the well-being of my child and provided a foundation for more cooperative co-parenting situation moving forward. If you find yourself in the challenging position of navigating high-conflict co-parenting legal issues, I wholeheartedly recommend Attorney Clark. His unwavering commitment to his clients, extensive legal expertise, and compassionate approach make him a true advocate for families facing complex legal challenges. I am immensely grateful for the support I received and cannot recommend Attorney Clark enough!

Custody
I hired Tom after another attorney told me I had no hope for custody. While the outcome of the case ended when there was an agreement mutually beneficial to both sides, Tom went above and beyond in my case. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a family attorney, and specifically a father's rights attorney

Grandparent Rights/Custody
Tom represented us through a complex child custody matter concerning grandparents rights. He was excellent is helping us to understand the laws and the rights that applied to us and actions we could take. He helped us to find a conclusion to that matter that will benefit all, and most importantly will provide the best possible outcome for an adorable grandchild who deserves the best.

Happy Dad
Tom has been a wonderful attorney! He is always very helpful and responsive to my questions and concerns. He has provided wonderful counsel from the very beginning. The two things that I appreciate the most about Tom is his passion for fighting for what is truly best for children in divorce and the amount of preparation that Tom puts into your case. I was impressed by how prepared Tom came to each meeting on my behalf and how amazing he did at my custody hearing. I have total confidence in his ability to represent me going forward. I also really appreciate that Tom takes the time to make sure that my questions and concerns are addressed. A+ attorney! He helped me to get my children out of a very bad situation.

Efficient Prenup Process!
Was introduced to Thomas through another attorney at the firm who helped out our family previously with estate planning...and I'm so grateful with how it worked out! Needed assistance with reviewing and finalizing details of a prenuptial agreement. Despite a quick turnaround time needed (around 4 weeks), the entire process was stress-free and incredibly efficient. Thomas was very responsive, straight to the point, and he easily coordinated with my partner's attorney; the other attorney made a comment to us saying how nice it was to work with Thomas. Truly felt like my best interests were at the forefront throughout the redlining process, and as a result we now have an executed agreement that I feel 100% comfortable with. Absolutely would recommend working with Thomas. I plan to utilize Tucker Arensberg PC for any future legal matters that should arise. Thanks again for all of the help, Thomas!

Recommendation
From the beginning Attorney Clark only had my very best interest at heart! He was very thorough in explaining how the process would work. If he felt that I was being too lenient at my detriment, he would freely tell me why I should change that thought process. He was solely focused on me receiving the best interest in this process. I would highly recommend Attorney Clark for any legal process that you would need.

Honest, Trustworthy, Candid, and Gets Results!
Tom has been my attorney for years in an extremely complex divorce case, and also continues to represent me for custody issues which arise from time to time. I trust him completely with my situation as he is a knowledgeable and driven attorney who was able to help my children and I to lead safer, better lives because of his zealous advocacy. From the moment I started searching for a family attorney 10 years ago, I performed extensive research because I knew I had to have the best. Fortunately, Tom has lived up to that expectation and then some. Additionally, he's always tried to keep down costs and has explained everything at each step along the way. He has earned every star and I would recommend Tom to anyone looking for an honest, experienced family law attorney who knows how to get results and advocate well for their clients.
