Jon is originally from the Fort Worth area. He graduated from Texas Tech University’s Rawls College of Business and then attended the Texas Tech School of Law. In law school Jon participated in several practice court activities, reaching the final rounds and winning awards in several. He also served as an editor on two journals, the Texas Tech Law Review and the Estate Planning & Community Property Journal. In his third year of law school, Jon had the opportunity to argue a real case before one of the United States Circuit Courts, the level of court just before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Initially, Jon worked as a law clerk with the firm and then went on to work as an attorney in the firm’s litigation department for three years. After a two and half year absence in which he had his own law firm and relocated to Austin, he rejoined the firm to work with Kevin Glasheen in our Austin office.
Jon has focused his entire career on representing people, and their families, who have suffered catastrophic injuries or death. He prides himself on his ability to understand and explain to juries the true harms caused by injuries and the ways in which an injury can drastically alter someone’s life.
Over the years, Jon has represented people in serious workplace injuries, commercial trucking cases, significant motor vehicle and motorcycle crashes, pipeline explosions, premises liability claims, pedestrian accidents, and various other situations. His aggressive style has led to successful outcomes through settlement and trial for hundreds of clients.
Jon has been named to the Nation’s Top One Percent by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel, which includes less than 1% of practicing attorneys in the United States. He has also been selected for inclusion in the Top 40 Under 40 of Plaintiff's Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers Association. In addition to his legal practice Jon is active with the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, an organization dedicated to protecting the rights of the people to seek justice in the Texas court system.
Jon is licensed to practice in all state courts in Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado. He is also admitted to practice in the United States District Courts for the Northern District of Texas and the United States District Courts for the District of New Mexico.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
If you have a personal injury issue, the first thing you should be concerned about is whether your lawyer truly empathizes with your situation. The second thing you should be concerned about is whether your lawyer knows the law so that he/she can best advocate on your behalf. The third thing you should be concerned about is whether your lawyer will be likable to a jury (because if your case is tried before a jury, whether or not the jury likes your lawyer can be devastating). Being a former Judge, I am a firm believer in Jon Clark and what he brings to the practice of law. He is a compassionate and zealous advocate for his clients; he knows the law inside and out; and he is one likable gentleman. Anyone needing Mr. Clark's services should know he/she is in good hands.
