You may know Justin Clark as the host of Behind the Law, or the sponsor of a number of charity events throughout Central Florida, but there's much more story behind Justin Clark.
Justin was born in Tennessee a humble number of years ago. The oldest of three brothers, Justin learned leadership at a young age. Although his family was not privileged financially they were very much privileged to have each other. However, this hardship was a valuable lesson and fueled the growth of Justin's career.
He later went on to attend the University of Tennessee followed by the New England School of Law. During his law clerkship Justin went to a somewhat less conspicuous venue than his classmates – he went back to blue-collar America to 84 Lumber in South Carolina to work with his father.
The beginning of Justin's career took him just a little further south to famed South Beach in Miami, FL where he learned workers compensation litigation from attorney William E. Gregory.
Shortly before the real estate bubble burst in 2006, Justin established Gregory & Clark, PLLC in Longwood, FL for the sole purpose of assisting the thousands of home owners who would soon be threatened with foreclosure and financial ruin. Six years later Justin Clark is still at work.
His dedication to the troubled and threatened of all walks of life has guided his practice and professional focus, and will continue to do so as long as his clients permit.
