Clark grew up in El Dorado, Arkansas. By age 14, he was active in his community and had already achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. He remains dedicated to scouting and was recently recognized for his lifelong contributions to the organization. He continues to recognize the obligations and benefits of giving back to his community, serving on the board of Ronald McDonald House and, as an accomplished pilot, volunteering to fly critically ill patients for Angel Flight.

After receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Mississippi in 1981, Clark was accepted into law school and graduated from the University of Arkansas, Little Rock in 1984.  He believes his early experiences in South Arkansas influenced his career significantly, including giving him a unique perspective in large truck cases that few other lawyers share.

In high school, in addition to news reporting for El Dorado radio stations, Clark regularly volunteered with the local sheriff’s office. In both roles, he witnessed firsthand the devastation caused by tractor-trailer crashes and how these senseless accidents were often directly caused by truck drivers’ carelessness. These catastrophic scenes and the injuries associated with them left a lasting impression. Clark couldn’t help but notice how the trucking companies’ representatives or investigators sent by their insurance companies quickly injected themselves into the official investigation, sometimes even before a victim who had been needlessly killed was removed. Later, Clark concluded that he would do all he could to even the playing field for victims and their families affected by these tragedies.

Now, after nearly 35 years of experience, Clark is an accomplished attorney who, along with his partners at Mason, Kelly & Collier, is dedicated to helping those who suffer catastrophic injuries or the loss of a loved one in truck collisions. He is recognized by fellow lawyers and judges as an attorney with pre-eminent legal ability, consummate integrity and exemplary ethical conduct and professionalism. As a result, he continues to hold the legal profession’s most respected attorney rating, “AV,” representing the highest achievement possible. After nomination by his peers and a rigorous vetting process, he was also selected as a Mid South Super Lawyer. Recognition as a Super Lawyer cannot be purchased; it is based exclusively on merit and is bestowed on no more than 5 percent of a state's licensed lawyers.

Clark continues to serve the legal community and served by appointment of the governor as a special associate justice on the Arkansas Supreme Court, participating in a case now considered a landmark decision across the country. He speaks at Continuing Legal Education events for lawyers and has authored and published several legal articles for other attorneys. He is a past president of the Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association and is chairman of the Arkansas Aeronautics Commission and remains active in multiple legal organizations. Clark’s community involvement is extensive. He supports and serves local charitable organizations and remains a devoted volunteer and longtime board member of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkansas.
