It's good to know there are still GOOD GUYS out there! Let me first say I didn't hire Blair Clarke because he gave me the information I needed over the phone. In researching attorneys on the phone, I felt rushed to spit out my question before I felt like the meter was running. Blair patiently listened, asked questions, was quickly able to assess my situation and took the time to listen and provide his expert advice. Within the space of a ten minute relationship Blair managed to show professionalism, empathy and expert advice to a non-client. He really showed that he’s the right person for me!

Out on my boat last Memorial Day weekend, I was stopped for what was called a “routine safety inspection”. During the inspection, the officer asked if I had anything alcoholic to drink today. I replied yes. Having only had one drink, I was comfortable that he would finish his inspection and we would continue on with our day on the water.
Instead, he tied my boat up to his and requested that I come over to his boat for a field sobriety test. After I was in the boat, he untied my boat stating that the water was too rough to leave the boats tied together. He proceeded with the test, which he said that I failed.
I was handcuffed and taken to a nearby boat ramp where they had a mobile trailer set up for administering breathalyzer tests - which I refused. I was charged with BUI, taken to jail and released about ten hours later.
Fast forward to Hebert and Associates: Blair Clarke took my case and fought it with confidence. His knowledge of the law was apparent and reassuring. The fact that the water was too rough to leave the boats tied together, but okay enough for me to take the field sobriety test was contradictory. A second sobriety test was never given once on land.
In the end, Blair had my BUI case dropped - I paid a ticket for my expired flares and am enjoying the sunshine once again!

Blair has been such an asset to my family; mainly my son. He has dedicated himself to protecting and defending others. I felt the need to commend him on his sincerity, devotion and belief in our young people. Hebert and Associates, in my opinion, is the most outstanding law firm in Pinellas County. When I needed someone the most, I reached out to this law firm, and found two incredible attorneys that were calming, reassuring and understanding of my families needs. Parents, it is a struggle raising our children today and it is difficult to help them through the challenges they face, but with the help of Hebert and Associates (especially you Blair), our family is back on track, and I pray it will remain that way. Parents, write this name down, if God forbid you are ever in need of an outstanding law firm who truly cares, whether it be for your children or for yourself.
I thank you so very much for your outstanding representation and your dedication.

I have worked both opposite Blair, during his tenure as an assistant state attorney, and along side him as zealous criminal defense attorney, and in either scenario, Blair proved to be a very knowledgeable, pragmatic, and compassionate advocate whose legal acumen and professionalism is second to none and should be aspired to by other practitioners. Without pause, I endorse this gentleman.

I have known Mr. Clarke for over 7 years now. We had several cases against each other while he was at the State and have spoken strategy on numerous cases since he left. I have always been impressed with his knowledge of the law and his passion for the profession. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney.
