I feel truly blessed to have worked with an esteemed lawyer like Al Clark. He handled my legal case with a sensitive and professional attitude. He is appropriately aggressive and knowledgeable. I placed my trust in him and would again without hesitation. Al admitted to not having much experience with cases involving the government/military, but he did the research needed for a more than successful outcome. I would highly recommend hiring him as an attorney..

I highly recommend Patrick Malone & Assoc for any legal issues you may have. I dealt directly with Al Clarke and he was professional, appropriately aggressive on my behalf, and attentive to my case. Importantly, Al was also reality-based throughout the process so he was never wasting either of our time. Placing your case in his hands will give it a great chance to succeed.

Growing up my mother use to say, "nothin beats an understanding". Being an adult and managing adult experiences, her saying can be more formally rendered as, a good understanding between parties will result in a desired outcome.
Tradegy strikes and an adult experience is certain to follow. My brother was killed in an automobile accident on a highway in Virginia. We live in Illinois. He is survived by three children, his eldest by a common law wife in Illinois and the two youngest by his legally married and divorced spouse. His ex wife and younger children lived in North Carolina. Who is prepared for this minefield, but a trusted knowledgable attorney.
Our family was introduced to Mr. Clarke through a local attorney. From the initial phone call and the months of activity that followed, our family tradegy was handled with such calm and compassion that I sometimes forgot we were communicating with an Attorney. You may know what I mean, but nonetheless, Mr. Clarke was exactly who we needed to resolve all of the many facets and nuisances of such a complex claim. We could not have found such an Attorney with our limited understanding of the law in multiple jurisdictions.
Mr. Clarke impressed us from the first call. He demonstrated that he understood the gravity and scope of his role from the outset and communicated clear expectations to us that this would be a months long process. He also reaffirmed our ability to communicate our thoughts and concerns, no matter how irrational or contrary to the facts of law, to him at anytime. In the beginning we had our moments and family disagreements. He handled them all with such grace and compassion, till we worked through our various stages of grieving. I know I am eternally grateful and am sure my Mother is as well. It has been a source of peace that this facet of our experience was professionally managed and not another point of stress.
I recall one discussion where Mr. Clarke called with news of an unexpected letter of agreement to settle. He was taken aback when I commented to him that I fully expected such from him, because I have "high confidence" in your ability to get things done. I did not need to communicate constantly to feel assured he was taking care of business, I just knew he would. I had and have High Confidence in Mr. Clarke, even from a distance of several states.
I recall only one instance when we communicated with anyone but Mr. Clarke. This only demonstrates his high level of self management and resource management with clients who are given the appropriate expectations to begin a relationship. Both parties respect each other's time.
If a professional is what you need and a fair outcome, Mr. Clarke is a strong contender for your legal matters.
