Criminal Defense attorney with experience at every trial level of Washington State courts of criminal justice: juvenile court, district court and superior court. Extensive experience in DUIs, domestic violence charges, license suspension issues, and felony cases. Trial experience at every level, including securing a not guilty verdict on a third-strike felony.
I'm proud to be back in Spokane, where I grew up. My father, John Clark, was a huge part of the legal community in Spokane, and helped a countless amount of folks in the Valley get back on their feet. It was watching him that inspired me to pursue the same career path: criminal defense.
After attending high school at West Valley High School here in Spokane, I attended Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, PA, where I graduated magna cum laude from the honors college with a degree in Business Management and a minor in Political Science. I came back to Spokane for two years after graduation and worked as a paralegal for Counsel For Defense, a local public defender's office that specializes in juvenile and felony cases.
In 2012, I moved on to law school at the University of Washington, where I took every criminal course I could find. I worked for the Snohomish County Public Defenders during my 2L summer, and for my father's former firm, Crary, Clark, Domanico & Chuang, P.S., during my 3L summer. After graduation, I took a job at the Spokane County Public Defenders Office, where over three and a half years, I handled almost every kind of criminal case that came through that office. I spent time in juvenile criminal court, district court, and in superior court, handling everything from DUIs and suspended license charges to violent felonies and third-strike offenses.
In March of 2019, I took a position with my Crary, Clark, Domanico & Chuang, P.S., coming back to the place where my father spent over 30 years. If you come to our firm, I promise that I will work my hardest to get you the result you desire, so that I can live up to the high standards I've set for myself and that my father set for this office. Because of the history I have with this town, this profession, and this office, I doubt you will find an attorney who will work more diligently or thoroughly to get you the result you want!
