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.
