Patton & Pittman is excited to announce that partner Chris Clark has been asked to join Student Defend’s network of criminal defense attorneys. Student Defend is a company that puts college students in need of immediate legal advice in direct contact with prescreened, qualified criminal defense attorneys in their communities. Student Defend specifically seeks out defense attorneys who are former district attorneys, prosecutors, or police officers for their network. Attorney Chris Clark has been asked to join the Student Defend network not just because he is a former prosecutor, but also due to his success as a criminal defense attorney and his experience as a former high school teacher.
Chris Clark is no stranger to the law’s impact on college students. He has traveled throughout the Southeast and Midwest speaking to college students on issues involving risk management for Sigma Phi Epsilon, the nation’s largest college fraternity. He works closely with Greek organizations at Austin Peay State University by mentoring them on risk management and career counseling. He understands that even good kids get into bad situations while in college and knows that the decisions made after getting in trouble can shape a student’s future forever. Attorney Chris Clark has accepted the invitation into Student Defend’s attorney network and is looking forward to the opportunity to help students in need of immediate legal advice navigate the legal system.
