Boulder Defense Attorney – Phil Clark
Experience, Skill & Dedication to Criminal Defense, DUI, & Family Law in Colorado
Phil Clark Law firm’s distinct expertise sets us apart from other firms. Trial attorneys are a tradition in Phil Clark’s family – going back five generations, starting with Jonas J. Clark who was appointed by Abraham Lincoln as the United States Attorney for District of Kansas City in 1861. Phil Clark is also a descendant of William Clark – from Lewis and Clark.
Phil Clark attended and excelled in law school at the University of Denver with the sole goal of becoming a trial attorney. Before he was even licensed, he had performed over 35 trials as a supervised student attorney. He passed the Colorado bar exam in 1990 with a score so high that the second portion of the test was waived.
Upon passing the bar and becoming fully licensed, Phil became a senior prosecutor for many years in the metro-Denver area. He tried homicides, serial crimes, DUI cases and nearly every type of felony, misdemeanor and traffic offense. He became intimately familiar with the perspectives, procedures and philosophies of the prosecution and law enforcement community.
Later, Phil was appointed second-in-command of the Weld County District Attorney’s Office. He was then elected as a member of the Colorado District Attorney’s Council State Governing Board serving with each elected District Attorney in Colorado, members of the Governor’s Office, members of the Attorney General’s Office, members of the United States Attorney’s Office and other high-ranking government officials.
Ultimately, Phil founded his own law firm and became a Boulder family lawyer, Boulder DUI attorney, and criminal/motor vehicle defense attorney, taking advantage of his great experience. Phil has been involved in numerous well-known cases and is highly respected in the legal community with a reputation for knowledge, long-time experience and a “never-say-die” perseverance.
Moreover, he is recognized as a community teacher of law and has taught at various high schools and community colleges, and plans to teach at community centers. Mr. Clark is proud of the recognition and appreciation received from his clients for his devotion to their cases. See Client Testimonials here.
