Troy was extremely helpful with my case. He communicates very well and is very intelligent. He was available whenever I needed to get a hold of him, and was also very kind. He worked very hard to obtain positive results in my case. I would highly recommend his services.

Sight for sore eyes
The only time I expected to hire a lawyer is when it came time to writing up a contract for a small business. Having to hire one for defense was the last thing on my mind especially how rough a year is has already been. Since the beginning, communication with Troy has been clear, straight forward, and was not sugarcoated. He is well versed in law and will thoroughly go over the details of your circumstances. Troy has your back until the end and will take all the steps to ensure the best results that leaves everyone happy

Amazing lawyer!
We hired Troy during a very difficult time in our life. He was so amazing. He worked diligently on our behalf and the results was so much better than we ever expected. He is a compassionate, honest, hardworking attorney who goes above and beyond for his clients.

Excellent guidance and response
I contacted Troy for guidance and needed a quick turn around. He provided sound advice and I was able to move forward with the transaction in just a few days. Troy walked me through my options and I felt like I had a true partner. I highly recommend!

Great outcome
Hired Troy when our son met with some legal issues. He walked us through everything that was going to happen, guided us on what we needed to do on our end, stayed in constant communication, and ended up with a great outcome which he came and delivered in person. Would definitely recommend.

Troy was very professional, but compassionate in our time of need. He always explained everything to us in full detail the good and the bad. He worked diligently for us and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I know you don’t see honesty and character, and compassion in many people today, but Troy exemplifies all this.

Very efficient
Troy Clark is the best there is! From the moment he was hired he was very timely and efficient. I never had to worry about getting in contact about details or updates on my case, as he was very prompt from the get go. I highly recommend his services. Great job!

Amazing Results!
I brought a family member to meet with Troy after she had been wrongfully arrested in an incident she did not cause. Troy was great. He took the time to explain the process to her and answer every single question. He never made us feel that we weren't worth his time or that any of our hundreds of questions and concerns were beneath him. In the end he was able to get the charge fully dismissed. I would hire him again.

Will change your opinion on attorneys, for the better.
He was very professional throughout my case, but most especially in the courtroom. When all other attorneys in the court room quickly spoke in dismissive manners (as if going through the motions), Troy stopped the hustle and bustle and took his time to explain everything needed to the judge. He obtained documents and resources in a timely manner. Contacted me with updates in a timely manner as well. Was very clear and took his time when explaining the legal process, my options, his plans and recommendations. He is a confident and honest individual. He treated me well, with both respect and kindness. I highly recommend him and this law firm.

Troy Clark/CrowerStewart Firm
Attorney Clark represented my grandson. My grandson and his family are all from Southern Illinois and when he was arrested in Georgia, it was to say the least very alarming because we were so far away. Troy stepped up to the plate to represent him and was able to get him home. His representation of my grandson was in my opinion the best we could have ever received. He was also very informative and professional when communicating with his client and the family. He always explained the options, the strategies, the consequence of each option available, and listened to our concerns and acted accordingly. I am so grateful he was on our side.

Absolutely Amazing!!
Best of the best… I only wished I knew of him from the beginning. I could have saved so much headache and money. Highly highly recommend.Absolutely what you want when it time comes to hiring an attorney. A true master when it time comes to legal matters. Thank you so much. After years of legal battles finally a lawyer who knows what they’re doing and actually cares for their client and not only after making a buck. Well connected and very professional. This is really the “Not fu*"$g around” team. If you want the best, look no farther. Needing a lawyer is never good since you only need them for dealing with legal issues. But I promise you one thing, this is who you want to fight for you, plain and simple. I heard so much but deep inside I was still a little worried but I quickly realized what I’ve heard was true. Ladies and Gentleman you have found the endangered spices of lawyers. Almost like finding an honest mechanic.

Truly the best attorney
So I guess my initial review was too long. but in a nutshell if you're like me you don't just have lawyers laying around for a rainy day. When you need them it's usually because something serious has happened. All the unknown factors, everything you have worked for, and your future... Before you know it you're overwhelmed. I am a retired army veteran. My attorney that I hired contacted me the day before hearing letting me know that he could not represent me because he did not feel confident. I reached out to a family friend who recommended another friend who had a law firm in Washington D.C. long story short through multiple refers I was given Mr. Clarks information. I understand that this is a very long testimonial but please hear me out. Since my first contact with Mr.  Clark, my case have been changed completely for the good. I am writing this on my own free will and I was not promised anything. What happened to me was wrong and a true miscarriage of justice, however if I did not have Mr. Clark on my side I would be at a complete loss. I take pride in still believing in our legal system, our constitution, and our American Way of Life. I swore to protect our constitution against all enemies, domestic and foreign, but never in a thousand years have I imagined I would be in a fight of my life for my own freedom or civil rights. If you are currently reading this then I can only imagine that you too are in a situation that will require someone in your corner and believe me when I tell you that Mr. Clark is the one you want. He is extremely capable, knowledgeable, and willing to duke it out until the end. I have been in real fights and I can tell you experience plays a large role in fights and when it comes time to legal fights he has a lot of notches on his belt that come to play when it time comes to fighting for you. He gets invested in your case and you feel like you are his only client. That is usually true with other attorneys until you pay them and shortly after you don’t hear anything until your hearing. Again, if you’re reading this please know that Im only writing this because if not for Mr. Clark I would not be here and my case would be in a completely different state. He is truly what everyone said he would be and more. A heavy hitting champ who knows how to fight and will fight until the job is done. Either way, whomever you are, I wish you all the best and hope you win if your case is just and right.

Professional, timely, and accurate
I contacted Mr. Troy Clark regarding a matter related to some assets of a business we were selling. We needed legal advice and documents to be drawn up to insure our interests were protected going into a possible sale with a potential buyer. In this case, in particular, we needed to move swiftly and Mr. Clark delivered. Well within our time frame we not only had the documents we required, but also the peace of mind that we had the correct legal opinion on how to proceed. I, personally, couldn't have been happier with the process, from start to finish, and I certainly plan on using Mr. Clark and his firm in the future.

Very Professional Service
I received a recommendation that I contact Mr. Clark to represent a family member. I was very impressed with the professional manner in which everything was handled. In the future, he would be the first person I would contact if I needed legal services.

White collar crime Attorney | Sep 22
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I highly recommend Christopher Troy Clark. I refer white collar crime cases, health care fraud issues, and other litigation matters to him. He is knowledgeable about many areas of the law and has a strong work ethic. He also has a great deal of courtroom and litigation experience."
Federal crime Attorney | Jan 02
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Troy Clark is an experienced lawyer with the skill and motivation to provide top-notch service to his clients. He is well respected as a specialist in federal criminal defense and healthcare defense. Trustworthy and diligent, he is an excellent attorney who will provide outstanding results in his cases. I and many others have the utmost confidence in his abilities as an advocate and legal counsel."
Federal crime Attorney | Aug 16
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Troy is tops in my book and it is easy to endorse someone who was a challenging a foe in Federal Court and a reliable counsel and friend now in private practice. Troy is a model lawyer (not just cause he is good looking). His education and work experience prepared him to aggressively advocate at high levels for sophisticated clients. He has a chess-master's mind for problem solving and the charisma of a bard in the area. I deeply enjoy my time with and around him, and look forward to working WITH him from this point forward. I am glad he left the US Govt, but that is super selfish of me since. Call Troy if someone gave you his name. They gave it to you for a reason."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jul 23
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I tried a federal court jury trial against Troy, and found him to be very knowledgeable as to the nuances of federal criminal law, and he was very comfortable and effective in the courtroom. I would not hesitate to refer a client with a criminal charge to him. In addition, he works in his firm with three other highly experienced former assistant U. S. attorneys, and this enhances his ability to provide effective representation."
Litigation Attorney | Jun 09
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Troy is an exceptional young lawyer who combines hard work with good judgment. As a former Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy is capable of handling complex litigation in a sensible, effective manner."
Criminal defense Attorney | May 20
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Troy knows the law and is exceedingly capable of applying the law to the facts of the case. He is approachable and respected by colleagues even when on the other side of a case. Most importantly, he knows how to win cases."
Criminal defense Attorney | May 20
Relationship: Co-worker
"I first worked with Troy when we were both prosecutors at the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Georgia. Then I litigated against him when I was in private practice and he was still a prosecutor. Now he is my law partner. Troy is an excellent attorney."
Federal crime Attorney | May 20
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Troy is an excellent trial lawyer with years of experience prosecuting complex federal cases. Now that he's in private practice, he's an excellent choice, particularly for "white collar" federal criminal defense. He's honest and trustworthy, and you'll get a great defense if you hire him."
Federal crime Attorney | Jan 23
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Troy is a top-notch trial lawyer in any forum, most pointedly in navigating all stages of Federal trials and investigative proceedings--where procedural nuances and some Districts' local rules make someone of Troy's caliber, specialized experience, and expertise indispensable. Troy has an impressive track record of proven success in white collar criminal proceedings and public corruption cases. Troy has proven that his depth of understanding enables him to stand his ground for his clients more effectively than would any bravado or tough talk about aggressive representation. His approach has soundly prevailed over aggressive litigation tactics at all stages of litigation. His pleasant, professional demeanor enables him to not only persuade juries, but also maintain high rapport with his opposing counsel that is essential to most favorable resolution at early stages. He has clearly demonstrated the judgment to fit the right approach to each case."
