Professional and swift
I hired Mr. Clarke for a DUI, case was negotiated to a reckless driving and case was concluded very quickly. I never thought I would be in this position; however, I was and glad that I hired Mr. Clarke to be my representation. Mr. Clarke is very professional, courteous, answered all my questions, and concluded my case quickly. I would highly recommend Mr. Clarke if you find yourself in a similar situation as I was in. Thank you again Mr. Clarke for all of your help getting this behind me as quickly as possible!!!

Just a phone call away
I recommend David Clarke. He was reasonably priced and easy to deal with. I retained his services for my divorce and my ex wife hated him... which filled my heart with joy

DUI
DUI case never being in a situation where I needed representation before, I wasn’t really sure what to do. David Clarke took the time to meet with me and explain the process to me,David is an excellent attorney. I couldn’t have asked for any better representation in my case. David and his team Nicole,really know their facts and get their jobs done in a timely and respectfully manner. Very happy with the outcome in this case.Best attorney in Rutherford Co.

Best divorce attorney in Murfreesboro!
My case was a difficult one. It could have been a lot of money, But to my surprise, It wasn't. David handled it beautifully! Some lawyers could have milked it till the funds were dry,but didn't. Did I mention he got everything I wanted! So excited for my future! If I have problems again he will be the only one I call. Thank you so much David

Mr Clark
I originally wrote a review of Mr. Clark, he and I have came to terms with the fact that we clearly had major miscommunication issues. I requested for my review to be removed on the 5th and still has not been taken down. He has been very attentive on my case and I feel very comfortable with his defense. This a very tough case he is handling. But he has shown that he is putting forth his best effort and that's all I ever wanted. I appreciate all Mr Clark's time and hard work he is putting into my case. And would say if you need an attorney hire David Clark. And please AVVO remove original review. Thanking You In Advance.

2nd DUI arrest
After being falsely accused and arrested for a DUI 2nd, I felt like no one was going to believe me. Before I hired David, I went into my old attorneys office and told her what happened front to back. Not only did she look as me as if I was lying, all she said was I had nothing to worry about and explained nothing but her price. After time I had so many questions and could never reach her. I finally was fed up and luckily walked into David Clarke's office. He listened to everything I had to say, then explained everything to me without me having to ask one question. My case isn't even over yet and he's already helped it because he knows what he's doing. He has been 100% honest about everything he's said so far. Today I called just to ask his secretary a question about my case and instead of her returning to the phone it was him. Last but not least the price was the last thing he brought up and if I wasn't able to pay it all up front he was willing to work with me. I highly recommend David L Clarke for any kind of legal counseling. He will be the only attorney my family and I will use from here on out.

I would recommend David to anyone who needs an outstanding attorney. He was very knowledgeable and always kept me informed of my case

Excellent Lawyer very professional and great caring personality
MR. Clark was an exceptional lawyer. He did the unthinkable with what we was facing . We used him for both a criminal attorney and family case. He kept in constant contact with us updating us on the situation and was very professional. Always was upfront and honest when he thought we should think about approaching certain aspects of our situation and helped us keep a level head through it all when it didn't seem possible.

My husband's case
I contacted this law firm based on the mostly positive reviews i read about Mr. Clarke on google. After consulting with Mr. Clarke concerning my husband's case, he took on the case, went to visit him in less than a week at the facility in which he was being held. A court date was set almost immediately to get the case going. I must say, the communication was spectacular. The firm always answers the phone and when the answering machine kicks in, you are guaranteed a return call if you leave a message. When u speak with Mr. Clarke, he gets right to the case at hand. No small talks such as "how's the weather over there?" Or "you mentioned you just gave birth. Must be tough without your husband. I will do what i can to get him home." It was always a serious, nonchalant type of tone. Not sure if that's a good thing or not for some people but for me, at that trying time of my life, i did need a friendlier, more encouraging, or assuring tone. I appreciate him being on top of the case from beginning to end. Now, due to my husband's lack of trust in the justice system, he didn't want to risk going to trial and spending more time away from his family. I didn't give 5 stars because the offer Mr. Clarke felt he should take, wasn't the best offer. I'm not sure if it was because he was tired of the drawn out nature of the case and was ready for it to end or if he was just dreading the tedious trial preparation for a case that should've been over with months ago. Hell, i was over it myself; but I surely didn't want him to settle for just any offer either. I must say, the DA did drag her feet with this case though. My husband declined two offers from the DA that Mr. Clarke presented to him. Finally, a better counter offer was accepted. Overall, I will recommend this law firm. Their intentions are good and i do believe they read these reviews and try to make improvements to better serve us, the clients.

Drug charge
I would never hire this lawyer to defend me again. First time in court he had a conflict and I had to go by myself to get put down by the judge for his absents. Second time he was there but nothing happened. The third time all he wanted to do was plead the case down instead of standing up for me in front of a judge. Not a very good lawyer for what I had to pay him. Be very careful hiring him. He is never on time. He never explained his strategic for my defense.
