Cases We Handle

We provide zealous legal representation for matters ranging from complex civil and commercial litigation, to matrimonial and family law, to white collar crimes involving tax evasion, money laundering, racketeering, and internal investigations, to more serious offenses based on drug conspiracy, sex crimes, DUI, and homicide. As trial-tested litigators, we have been successful in building effective litigation strategies based on our 50 years combined legal experience. We have successfully handled several cases in courts across the nation before judges and juries and have effectively negotiated favorable outcomes outside the courtroom.

Our founding partners, Phillip C. Hamilton and Lance A. Clarke, hail from two of the nation’s premier criminal defense practices: The Bronx Defenders and The Legal Aid Society of New York. While there, they learned how to successfully navigate the courtroom, the legal system, and the institutional relationships that are key to litigious success. After founding separate litigation boutiques representing diverse individuals from union members to CEOs and many high-profile clients, Phillip and Lance decided to form Hamilton Clarke, LLP. The goal was to create a firm that combines exceptional quality with client-centered and results-oriented service.
