It seems that attorneys have to face a lot of tough public opinion, some of it deserved, some not. But on occasion, you're privileged enough to find one with the "old-fashioned" qualities of both experience and compassion (yes, I'm actually using that word in conjunction with lawyers). Forrest Clinard is just one of those people. I'm semi-retired now and have few financial resources anymore, but his legal fees were so reasonable for the work performed, that if I had the funds, I would have gladly paid him MORE for his efforts. His response time, his care in treating you as a valued individual, his lifetime of experience in law, all added up to one of the most pleasant and beneficial experiences I've ever had with a legal professional, anywhere, any time, any place. I feel that I didn't only gain a wonderful attorney, but a friend.

At the recommendation of another client, I hired Atlanta attorney Forrest K. Clinard to manage some business related legal issues.
As a business law and business litigation specialist, Forrest K. Clinard exuded professionalism, legal knowledge, and excellent communication skills. He listened, addressed my concerns, and seemed genuinely interested in protecting my assets. Forrest was punctual in delivering the services I requested. Service fees were very affordable for the Atlanta area.
Despite hundreds of business lawyers in metro Atlanta, I would rank Forrest second to none. I believe both corporate and small business persons would benefit from Forrest K. Clinardâ€™s expertise in business law.

I'm a small business owner - who upon having a client 'ignore' a contract - Mr. Forrest Clinard came to my rescue. HIGHLY recommend his legal expertise.

Forest is an excellant litigator. He is considerate of his clients and represnts them with zeal and expertise. The respect of his colleagues was evidenced by his service as the President and a long term Director of the North Fulton Bar Association.
