David M. Clark, lead attorney and founder of The Clark Law Office, is a former prosecutor and knows first-hand how police and district attorneys put together cases. After making the switch from prosecutor, David has been a defense attorney and has represented clients going through tough times for over 30 years. Along with our vast knowledge and experience of the criminal justice system, we utilize a team of private investigators and forensic specialists.  Our law firm will use all of these advantages when fighting your criminal charges and protecting your rights.

We Use An Aggressive and Proactive Criminal Defense Strategy

Many criminal defense lawyers in Michigan take a slower wait and see strategy when dealing with criminal matters.  Before working on your case and starting an investigation, they stall until the first court date or stall until they have a chance to receive a police report.  We take a different approach.  The most critical time for a defense strategy is usually the first couple of days following the arrest or even before formal criminal charges have been brought.  We will get to work immediately on your case so that we can get a head start finding favorable defense witnesses and evidence.  We believe that there is no time to waste.  Since we are not a “high volume” firm, we are able to provide high quality, creative, individualized, and dedicated legal representation to each and every one of our clients.


We can help you take on the unfair resources of the police, prosecution, state, and federal government. We have been successfully protecting the rights of clients for over 30 years.


Knowing The Local Michigan Courts

Our criminal defense lawyers have been helping clients take on the State, prosecution, and police for the last 30 years in Michigan.  Over this time, we have worked regularly in local courts while developing real trust relationships.  Every county and courthouse has a unique way that cases are handled.  The process in East Lansing differs significantly from the process in Oakland County.  We know how things work in particular courtrooms and how things work with particular prosecutors.  We know who to talk to, who has the most discretion, and we know the most effective ways to get the job done.

Close Direct Contact With Your Lawyer

We understand that being charged with a criminal offense or being investigated the police is traumatizing.  Not being able to reach your attorney make this ordeal even worse.  At The Clark Law Office, we make it a priority to ensure that we are easily accessible.  We are here to help you through your tough times and provide support, it’s why we became criminal defense lawyers in the first place.

We aren’t a “high volume” criminal defense firm, so we are able to give you the individualized attention to YOUR case that many other law firms simply can’t.  If you become a client of ours, we make sure that your phone calls and emails are responded to in a timely fashion and you will get the personal cell phone number of your attorney for easy communication.  Not only does this help reassure our clients, it helps us do our job better.  The clients are the best resource for understanding the details of the case and who the key people in the case are.  We want to hear from you and get your side of the story so that we can present the best defense possible to judges and prosecutors.
