Michael Clark, Trial Attorney (founder)

Michael Clark -

My name is Michael Clark and I have been helping injury victims across the Puget Sound region since 1993. If you have been seriously injured, you may wonder how you can protect your future. You may worry about your bills if you cannot work. You may wake up at night thinking about who is going to pay your mounting medical bills. You might not even know how to proceed. My team and I will take the time to understand your individual worries and goals and put your mind at ease. We cannot turn back time, but if you are injured through no fault of your own, you deserve to be compensated. I’m here to serve you and help you get your life back.

I began my career as a criminal defense attorney, and that experience sets me apart from most other personal injury lawyers. My years in criminal law allowed me to spend considerable time arguing cases in court, so I know what works and how to give you the best chance for success. While I always try to help clients reach a just settlement without litigation, sometimes a lawsuit can’t be avoided. In those cases, I will fight to help you recover the maximum compensation as quickly as possible. If you want a law firm where you never speak to an attorney and are pressured to take the first or second settlement offer, then don’t hire me and my team— because we just don’t work that way. 

Along with my caring and capable team, we take pride in providing exceptional client service. You will be treated with respect and empathy as we strike the right balance between efficiency and accessibility. We practice a team approach and use the latest technology to efficiently achieve excellent results.   

Born and raised in Tacoma, I earned a B.A. from the University of Washington and my law degree from the University of Puget Sound (before it merged with the Seattle University School of Law). I am the father of two adult sons, and I enjoy fishing, golfing, and creating the perfect pizza in my backyard wood-fired oven.
