Personal Message


I chose, a number of years ago, to refine the nature of my practice and to focus upon listening, advising and counseling instead of participating in the adversarial aspects of the practice of law...





"Mr. Clarke has been my lawyer for about 20 years, handling everything from mundane estate settlements, to my trust and will to complex business dealings and negotiations.  I don't do a thing without a call to him.  He has kept me from making big mistakes numerous times."
