About Our Team
New York Attorneys Dedicated to Making A Difference
With over 35 years combined experience, and over 7,500 clients represented, the lawyers at Hamilton Clarke, LLP have zealously and successfully represented individuals and companies charged with complex offenses in both state and federal court. From white collar matters involving tax evasion, money laundering, and internal investigations, to more serious offenses involving drug conspiracy, racketeering, and homicide, the lawyers at Hamilton Clarke, LLP have successfully tried the case, or negotiated a favorable outcome.
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, respectively, Phillip and Lance learned how to successfully navigate the courtroom, the criminal justice system, and the institutional relationships that are key to success.
After founding separate litigation boutiques where they represented everyone from union members to CEO’s, and a number of high-profile clients, Phillip and Lance decided to form Hamilton Clarke, LLP for a combined high-quality, client-centered, results-based law firm.
The lawyers at Hamilton Clarke, LLP believe in one simple principle: excellent representation.
