About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

I have a wide-range of experience from working as:  (1) an attorney with a defense law firm in Birmingham, Alabama, where I was assigned to many complex civil law suits; (2) an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Alabama handling death penalty appeals; and (3) a US Army lawyer (JAG) now retired (including two deployments to the Middle East). 

Since 2007, I have been in private practice in Prattville, Alabama.  My law firm focuses on criminal law, bankruptcy, and family law.  Let me put my experience to work for you!

Divorce Consultation
I contacted David because A. He is a very very good friend and B. He is a very knowledgeable and excellent attorney. He helped me consider things in a new light and prevented me from just giving up and making some very bad mistakes just to get things over with. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Debt Collection
We had a collection issue and Mr Clark worked with us to write a letter to those involved to solicit payment. He is courteous to work with and knowledgeable in his profession.

Wonderful Experiences
David handeled an auto accident where my husband was very badly injured and the other driver killed. The other driver was drunk and at fault but my husband, being foreign and the other a veteran, blame was shifted to my husband. David took care of that and made sure truth and justice prevailed. He handled the insurance companies and several other things. Later he helped me, as well as my daughter, with free advice on other matters. I wouldn't hesitate to refer him.

Can't find better
David was extremely helpful to our family! He really knows his facts and the laws and did not let the other attorney continue to bully us. He is absolutely amazing and I couldn't have asked for anyone better to represent us!

Excellent and Caring
Mr. Clark prepared a will and health directive documents for my family. He really knows what he's doing, yet he could explain things in everyday terms. He is so caring, quick to return messages, and prompt in doing what he said he would do. I would definitely utilize his services again and recommend him to you!

Excellent Lawyer
David prepared a power of attorney for me. He did a great job! He is a very nice and honest person. He knows the law and was able to explain to it to me in ways that was easy to understand. I would recommend him to anyone!

Very Good Lawyer!
Mr. Clark worked very hard our case. Our Judge was slow to making any decision and Mr. Clark was very very persistent with the judge. He made sure that we where always informed of any situation that arisen during our 1 year experience with his firm. I never not once felt lost with our case. I never had a problem reaching him. My phone calls, if not answered right away, where promptly returned. I recommend his services to every Father fighting for their children.

Head on collision and other things
When my husband was hit head on by a drunk driver some years ago and immediately being held at fault, I called David in the night. He put my mind at ease. He worked to clear everything up. He also handled a few other things for us during the same trying time. I recommend him. As a matter of fact, some people I did send to him came back with raving reviews.

David Clark and staff are very polite and determine to help meet your needs. Very much on top of every detail. Honestly I wouldn't trust a lawyer but David Clark and his staff are unbelievably the best lawyers I ever known and very trustworthy. I absolutely love this office I recommend this office for everyone.

awesome!
Mr Clark handled my divorce and kept me informed as to what was going on even though my ex was being stubborn. I wish I could have been a fly on the wall when she signed the papers! He also handled the case where she signed over all rights while recovering from back surgery. As far as I'm concerned he is my attorney and I recommend him to everyone.
