Though he has practiced family law and criminal defense law, Christopher Clark is most passionate about personal injury law, where his clients “need representation when their lives are put into a chaotic and stressful state.”
Such persons “often are burdened with exorbitant medical bills that place financial strain and more stress on their lives,” Christopher says. “I became a lawyer to help people who were going through such bad situations due to no fault of their own.”
As a pre-litigation attorney in the Dallas office of Jim Adler & Associates, Christopher advocates for injured clients against insurance companies which resist paying them what they owe.
Born in Tupelo, MS, he also lived in six other states while growing up, including Texas. “My parents thought I would be an attorney because I always spoke a lot and enjoyed debating issues for fun,” Christopher says.
He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree, summa cum laude, from the University of Mississippi in 2010 and his juris doctorate from the University of Mississippi School of Law in 2014. While still attending law school, Christopher drafted a winning appellate brief before the Mississippi Supreme Court.
At the University of Mississippi, Christopher was a Graeber Scholarship recipient, was on the Chancellor’s Honor Roll for all seven semesters and was a member of Gamma Beta Phi, Phi Kappa Phi, Pi Sigma Alpha, Psi Chi and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars.
At the School of Law he was a McGuire Scholarship recipient, won the Outstanding Student Award for highest grade in sentencing, was on the Trial Advocacy Board and was an undergraduate trial team coach.
Christopher is a member of the State Bar of Texas and The Mississippi Bar, and he is licensed to practice law in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas.
