Clark Vellis


I’ve been a plaintiff’s lawyer and a defense lawyer.  I have worked as outside counsel, but I’ve also worked as an in-house lawyer.  And I’ve been to trial in multiple states so I know when a case is strong and when it’s not.  My clients know I can give them advice from all of these perspectives – and that they’ll get an honest opinion from someone who’s sat where they sit.
