Your case matters.

From the minute you are under investigation for a crime your freedom and your future is on the line. Our government has overstepped its bounds: too many crimes carry far too stiff of penalties. Good people are in jails and forced out of the job market permanently because of minor mistakes made in their past. You can't afford to end up in jail. Court fines and costs are higher than they have ever been. Even minor traffic violations can cost you your license and your job.

My entire career has been dedicated to defending the accused. 

I have defended Kentuckians at every level from speeding tickets to murder and I've been successful every step of the way. Prior to founding Clark Law PLLC I was appointed as one of five full-time Capital Defenders for the Eastern half of Kentucky. As a capital defender I trained under some of the nation's top defense attorneys including Barry Scheck and Gerry Spence. I have lectured statewide on the topics of DNA, Forensic Evidence, and Storytelling. I want to bring this experience to defending you.

Our firm doesn't handle car accidents or divorces or wills. We offer boutique, personal criminal defense, DUI and expungement services for people like you. Our firm doesn't have a fancy office with marble floors or a fountain. We actually aren't in the office all that much anyway because we are fighting in court, interviewing witnesses, and visiting our clients. Our firm doesn't make crazy guarantees about results because every case, your case, is different.

But what we can guarantee you is that we will take your problem and treat it like it was our own. That you will rest assured knowing that your case is being handled as well as we know how. That you can get the peace of mind to go on living your life while we present your case in a compelling, polished manner. 

Whether you are looking at a simple speeding ticket or a capital murder we are ready to take your problem head-on. If you are charged with a crime or under investigation for one, contact my office today

Outstanding legal advice!
I contacted Brad Clark from the unconvicted.com website not to sure what to expect. I have had several conversations with my expungment lawyer "Bradley Clark" whom I decided to hire on the spot after talking with him. His knowledge of the law and his expertise shined through his personality. Within 90 short days Brad Clark has resolved my record issues and will continue to be my advisor for future ventures. Very happy with his service!!

Professional, Honest, Responsive, Ethical, Knowledgeable and All Around Good Guy!
I called Mr. Clark as a parent of a teenager who made his first mistake in college as a freshman. Needless to say, I was frantic and didn't know what to do, so Mr. Clark in a very calm voice said, "I make your problem my problem until the problem is resolved." Once he said that, I calmed down and realized that we were in good hands because Mr. Clark was going to do everything within his power and expertise to obtain the best results for our family. We hired Mr. Clark that day and our fears and worries subsided. Our case has since been successfully resolved. From the beginning, Mr. Clark was very professional and thorough throughout the entire process. He knows the system and he has extensive experience working with the prosecutors and judges in the system. If your family gets into a similar situation with your college student who made a bad decision as our family did, please do not hesitate to call Bradley Clark. To quote Mr. Clark, " I've always believed that every person is better than the worst decision they've ever made," and he truly believes that and embodies it in every case.

Outstanding Attorney
Not expecting to have trouble with my expungement case, I did not have an attorney. After I found out the Commonwealth's Attorney was opposing my request Brad stepped in without hesitation and with full confidence that he could handle the situation. He argued the case to perfection and I won my expungement. It would be hard to articulate how grateful I am for Brad's help and what he accomplished for me. Hands down, one of the most sincere and knowledgeable attorney's I've ever met.

Strong Defense in the Courtroom
Bradley Clark is a very professional attorney who is not only knowledgeable about the law, but also has a heart and cares about people. Words can not express the level of gratitude I have for Mr. Clark. I had a case that I can honestly say could have impacted not just my personal life but my professional life as well. I could not have selected a better lawyer for my case. When I got my DUI I thought my situation was hopeless and I was extremely nervous. The outcome far exceeds my expectation. I am happy to say that my DUI charge was reduced to a reckless driving because Mr. Clark fought for me.

Best Attorney Around
I would highly recommend Attorney Bradley Clark. He answered all my questions and addressed my concerns in a timely manner. My case was particularly different from many others but he was able to get the outcome we needed. I couldn’t have asked for more.

True Professionalism, Great Confidence and a real nice suit!
I am glad I had Mr. Bradley D. Clark on my side in court on Aug. 29, 2018. What he did was priceless and it will never be forgotten! I wanted others to know about what I went through and how Mr. Bradley helped me through the worst moment in my lifetime. He made me feel comfortable in an uncomfortable situation because he was honest with me and optimistic about my case. He made me feel taken care of and respected in a difficult situation. In the courtroom, on this day - he fought for my freedom again and for my life. He is the most absolute hands down Best Defense Attorney in the whole state of Ky! He was there for me, if I ever had any questions. I could call him. After meeting with him and talking with him (only two days before my court date) I knew he was the right attorney for me. And so, I hired him right away! He is professional, well-spoken, reliable, extremely knowledgeable about the law, kind (he'll treat you like family) and compassionate. If you are currently faced with a criminal legal problem (all of these awesome qualities, you want in an attorney) this is the man you want to represent you! He had a solid rock defense strategy for my case - and this is why I believe (the deal I received) was the very best I could receive in my case. And, I couldn't be happier. Even when the other attorney (on the other side) wanting me to spend 10 more days in jail (Mr. Bradley fought for me). Even when the other attorney (on the other side) wanted to have my case sent to circuit court (Mr. Bradley fought for me). And, even when Mr. Bradley told me to please try to come up with $2,000 to give to the judge for restitution on what you owe. And, all I had was $1,500 (Mr. Bradley still got my charge dropped from a felony to a misdemeanor, with 2 years probabation). And this is with a person (like myself) with no prior criminal history. Not even a speeding ticket. I am just a 21 year old college student who made a very big mistake. And I am truly sorry for the extra stress, embarrassment & heartache I caused on myself and my family. And, oh - I promise you I have I learned a Huge lesson and will never ever do anything like this ever again. But Mr. Bradley was professional and well-prepared for this court appearance and I wanted him to know that all of his hardwork & dedication did not go unnoticed. Thank you for everything you did for me.

Excellent attorney!
From the moment I walked into Mr. Clark's office I knew he was the right attorney. Every question I had he answered in great detail. He looked over the case in front of me and explained how he could help. Even showing me previous examples. I decided that he was the right person to defend my loved one.

Excellent Representation and Kept Me Driving
My lawyer presented an excellent argument against a case that was in front of a jury would of likely been thrown out. Helped prevent suspension of my license. Convincing enough that he had the Commonwealth at a lose for words and the Commonwealth witness honestly was unable to provide sufficient evidence. Unfortunately we all know how traffic court goes you never leave without giving up a pound of flesh. Maybe one day the Traffic Court system will get it together and allow citizens with a valid argument and weak evidence against them be enough to have cases dropped.

Outstanding man and attorney who I would definitely reccommend!
Bradley helped get my daughter out of tough potentially life changing felony charge. From day one, he was calm, cool and confident that he could help. He assurances helped calm both and me my daughter down. He has a great rapport with his clients and with his peers. My daughter did 60 hours of community service at a homeless shelter for 3 days straight. He experience there was a life changer. I can't thank Bradley enough for the multiple phone calls he had with both me and my daughter giving us advice and being the voice of reason -- all before he was even given a retainer. Bradley is a stand up guy who truely cares about his clients

very pleased
i was very skeptical at first because of how complicated things were with the laws changing concerning expungement and my case being over 40 years old. I was very pleased with the way my case was handled and very pleased with the results. Anytime I contacted them they always responded quickly with information I was requesting. Thank you Mr Clark with special thanks to Carolyn for all your help in lifting this burden from me for a mistake I made as a teenager.

The Best at Expungments
Mr. Clark was exceptional to work with and was very reasonable. He seen me trying to fill out forms for an expungment and took time out of his day free of charge to assist me seeing that I needed help. However, my situation was complicated and I found out that I needed further legal council and he came to the rescue. He even allowed me to text him at 7:30am on a Sunday morning and get this.... he responded. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for coming to my rescue that day, you've helped me far more than you ever know.

Traffic Tickets
Mr. Clark handled my case in Lexington, KY while I live in Fayetteville, NC. He was pleasant to work with. I was kept updated on the case, and it was resolved quickly. Thank you for the help Mr. Clark.

The best!
Attorney Bradley Clark is incredible. Lawyers typically have a reputation of being money-pits who don't have any regard for their clients. Bradley defies that stereotype. When I called him for a consultation, he listened with interest and offered guidance. He went out of his way to find answers to our dilemma. Not only that, his genuine concern for people and fight for justice is evident in the way he conducts himself. He could have easily disregarded my plea and ignored my questions, instead he helped me find answers and asked to be kept in the loop to offer more assistance. Im very grateful for his concern and assistance. He is one of the good ones!

Expungement
I believe the best customer service comes from people who believe they can make a positive difference in other people lives. Unconvicted displayed to me how enthusiastic and professional they are about getting the job done. Although the process can be long, Unconvicted will keep you updated though the entire process. The experience I had with this organization what nothing short of exceptional service. You will not find a better service than these guys at any price anywhere Thanks Brad

Greatly exceeds expectations.
I was charged with a class b felony and was reccomend Bradley Clark to represent. Brad negotiated an affordable bond to have me out and working throughout the courts negotiation process. I had hoped just to avoid a felony conviction as my top priority. Brad not only negotiated my sentence down to a misdemeanor but also had my sentence reduce to well under what i reasonably expected. He also negotiated my probationary period to be such that it doing interfere with my day to day. He was very professional and made himself available at all times to answer any questions that I had and made sure I was well prepared with all the information I needed for my case. I could not have hired a better attorney to represent me. Hopefully I won't have any need in the future for an attorney but of that need ever arises I'll hire this man again straight away.
