Why Boulder Attorney Phil Clark?
Trial attorneys are a tradition in Phil Clark’s family starting with Jonas J. Clark five generations ago, who was appointed by Abraham Lincoln as the United States Attorney for the District of Kansas City in 1861. He is also a descendant of William Clark of Lewis & Clark.
Phil Clark attended and excelled in law school at the University of Denver with the goal of becoming a trial attorney. Before he was even licensed, he performed over 35 trials as a supervised student attorney. He wrapped up law school by scoring so high on the Colorado Bar exam in 1990 that the second portion of the test was waived.
An Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer
Upon passing the bar and becoming fully licensed, Phil was a senior prosecutor for many years in the Denver-Metro area. He tried homicides, serial crimes, DUI cases, and nearly every type of felony, misdemeanor, and traffic offense. Phil Clark became intimately familiar with the perspectives, procedures, and philosophies of the prosecution and law enforcement community — a strong advantage for aggressive criminal defense.
Later, Phil was appointed second-in-command in the Weld County District Attorney’s Office. Then he was 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 state officials.
Ultimately, Phil founded his own law firm and became a Boulder based criminal and motor vehicle defense attorney, a legal arena in which he has great experience. Phil has been involved in several well-known cases and is highly regarded in the community as having a reputation of being knowledgeable, experienced, and diligent. He places tremendous emphasis on client communication and confidentiality, and maintains excellent relationships with clients and their families.
