Attorney BioBRIAN H.CLARK, ESQUIRE
Brian H. Clark received his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1992 from the University of Maryland with a major in Criminology and Psychology. He graduated from the University of Baltimore Law School with a Juris Doctor (JD) degree. His concentration was in litigation. He was born in Silver Spring, Maryland and grew up in Ocean City. He graduated high school in 1987 from Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin, Maryland outside Ocean City. He spent his high school and college years during the summer working for his parent's numerous businesses in Ocean City. Prior to becoming licensed to practice law in Maryland, he enjoyed a successful career in the banking industry for over 15 years as a loan officer and Vice President of Government Lending. He developed and fine tuned his approach to treating each client with attention and care in an informed, sensible manner. He was recognized for his nationwide sales figures and dedication to his clients needs. That approach continues to this day.
During law school, he prosecuted hundreds of criminal cases for the Montgomery County State's Attormey's Office under the Rule 16 program. This program allowed certain qualified law students the ability to prosecute criminal cases in the District and Circuit Court (juvenile). The cases included all District Court criminal cases, serious traffic/DUI cases, and juvenile cases, including bench trials against local private defense counsel and the Office of the Public Defender. He won his first trial before graduating law school and sat 2nd chair in his first jury trial shortly after graduation. After graduation from law school, he assisted a senior Montgomery County State's Attorney in preparing for felony drug trials in the Circuit Court. His time in the State's Attorney's Office was invaluable.
He is a member of the Maryland State Bar Association, Montgomery County Bar Association, Maryland Criminal Defense Attorneys Association, and the American Bar Association. He has completed numerous seminars sponsored by MICPEL, MCDAA and the University of Baltimore involving DUI defense, evidence, criminal procedure, personal injury and trial strategies. He completed the 24 hour NHTSA and IACP course in DWI detection and Field Sobriety Testing that police officers undergo. Very few DUI lawyers have completed this course and it is an essential tool needed to defend a DUI client at a high level.
He has handled countless DUI and Criminal cases with successful results in trials in his practice jurisdications. Each case is prepared for trial and many DUI and Criminal cases result in a bench trial if a favorable plea outcome is not in the client's best interest. He understands that the law is a service industry and clients must receive excellent customer service, attention to detail, broad knowledge, and a passionate voice that delivers the best results possible on their behalf. He is known for going the extra mile for each client and keeping them informed on a constant and consistent basis.
