DWI Case
March 2020, I got myself in a sticky situation with law in which I was arrested for DWI. I needed a lawyer quick and Mr. Clarke was referred by a fellow family member. A day or so after the incident I spoke with Mr. Clarke and his team. They gave me the rundown of what kind of service they provide their clients, explained the charges/various outcomes, and iterated how they work hard to get their clients the most favorable outcome. After the initial interview Mr. Clarke agreed to take my case. During the course of the my case, Mr. Clarke and his dynamic team kept me informed about upcoming court dates as well provided detail reports of things discussed after each court proceeding. Mr. Clarke and his team went above and beyond by writing a character letter on my behalf to the DA. He also attended my IA interview to make sure I did not incriminate myself. Mr. Clarke was well prepared (ready for war) and argued beautifully. A Non Pros was given. All in all The Clarke team was very professional, had dynamic team work, and they truly have their clients best interest at heart. *FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN JESUS LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING PRAYER CHANGES THINGS AND HE WORKED A MIRCALE FOR ME. I TRULY SAW THE GLORY OF GOD DECEMBER 2020*

Mr. Clarke
I’m from North Carolina and got into some trouble with DC gun laws and Mr. Clarke came highly recommended and he was better than spoke upon. He not only got the charges dropped but he worked with me and was available anytime of the day or night.

Kevin Sneed found not guilty by all 12 jurors
My son Kevin Sneed was brutally beaten by Prince George's County MD. police and charged with 1st degree attempted murder on an officer along with 14 more charges. For 2 years my son and I have been fighting a merritless case. Kevin had 3 public defenders and 1 paid attorney. Kevin fired all of them and retained Andrew Clark. Andrew was on the case for only 2 months and got my son acquitted when the judge and prosecutor was working against him. Andrew's dedication to Kevin's case made me feel like Kevin case was his only case. To find out this man had other clients blew my mind. Andrew gave a Stella performance throughout the whole trial especially in his closing argument. It was the talk of the courthouse. But wait there's more, Andrew is a D.C. Attorney who pro hac his appearance into my son's Prince George's County MD. case and beat the case. My son Kevin Sneed's case set precedent in Prince George's County MD. all because of Andrew Clark amazing legal defense. He saved my son's life from an unjust system. THANK YOU ANDREW, YOU GAVE KEVIN A NEW BEGINNING AND FOR THAT I WILL ALWAYS SPEAK YOUR NAME. For all who view this, if you are looking for a great Attorney, look no further because Andrew Clark truly cares about his clients. Thanks Andrew, I got my so back. Kema Harris

Excellent Attorney
I am pleased and honored to write a recommendation for Andrew Omar Clarke. Mr. Clarke is an excellent attorney who is very knowledgeable in criminal law and an exemplary professional. Specifically, Andrew Clarke overall strategy, experience, expertise, and effective execution produced a successful outcome (Not Guilty verdict on all charges) on my case. Moreover, he managed to maneuver through obstacles due to unequal treatment during the entire court proceeding, and his delivery of oral arguments was sound with a thorough representation of the established laws. He was able to identify irregularities of the prosecutions ’actions whom aggressively pursued criminal charges that were excessive and out of compliance with the regulations of the court. Mr. Clarke also succeeded a previous attorney for this case which he was able to develop a successful strategy with a limited time schedule. He also maintained constant contact and communication with me throughout this entire process. As a result, he exceeded expectations and therefore, it is without hesitation, that I would recommend Mr. Clarke to anyone seeking legal representation.

Mr Clarke represented me for two cases. Both were null processed. I found Mr Clarke to be very approachable, knowledgeable, and prepared. I was confident in his ability to defend me, as he took the time to familiarize himself with my case. He also listened to any questions that I had. I especially appreciated his calming demeanor, it made me feel at ease in court.

Thankful for Andrew Clarke
Mr. Clarke was retained to defend my son in a criminal case. My son was charged with reckless driving for speeding in the state of Virginia, really VA!? I will keep my comments to myself. Mr. Clarke’s services extended well beyond our financial obligation. He invested himself on a professional and personal level. We are forever grateful and appreciate him immensely.

Professionalism & Prompt Legal Counsel
I was referred to Mr. Clarke by a dear friend and peer. Mr. Clarke took on my divorce case officially in August 2017 and the matter was completed November 2017. What I appreciated the most about Mr. Clarke was his attention to detail, prompt response and directives to me concerning due outs and or updates regarding my case. Mr. Clarke made both parties involved feel informed and followed up with us respectively of court dates and needed revisions for our legal paperwork. I would refer Mr. Clarke to my family and friends. I feel that the services that he provided were exceptional.

REMARKABLE!
I honestly couldn't have asked for an better attorney! He listened and understood my situation! I was most definitely facing jail time and a very hefty fine! He was firm and very determined not to let that happen! Long story short I left out of that court building with a small fine and NO jail time! He's the absolute best!
