R. Craig Clark

R. Craig Clark

Managing Partner
San Diego, California

Craig discovered his passion for advocating for the rights of people in high school while participating on the debate team. Fortunately, he was also blessed with the internal desire and ability to fight powerful forces. That, combined with hard work and determination, has contributed to his success.

Craig obtained his law degree from the University of San Diego in 1986. He was awarded membership in USD Law Review, was a finalist in Moot Court, and graduated in the top 5% of his class.

After law school, Craig joined the largest and most prestigious law firm in San Diego - Gray, Cary, Ames & Frye (now DLA Piper). At Gray Cary, Craig specialized in litigating complex cases, mostly on behalf of large, corporate defendants and insurance companies.

Craig left Gray Cary to represent individuals, groups of people, and small businesses. For the last 15 years, Craig and his firm, Clark Law Group, have primarily represented groups of people in collective and class action lawsuits in disputes against powerful corporations and insurance companies.

Craig is a superb litigator, negotiator, and a true trial attorney. If he cannot obtain a favorable settlement for his clients, he will not hesitate to take the case to trial. He has tried over 40 lawsuits, including multiple class action cases involving thousands of plaintiffs. Craig has obtained more than $500 million in awards for his clients.

Craig has also served as a mediator in cases brought and defended by other lawyers.

Craig has received many awards for his legal work and skills. He was twice granted the prestigious Outstanding Trial Lawyer Award by the San Diego Trial Lawyers Association. He was also named as the Outstanding Alumni of his class by his fellow USD Law School graduates. He has served on the Board of Governors of the California Trial Lawyers Association, the San Diego Trial Lawyers Association. He is also a Master in the Enright Inn of Court.

When not working, Craig concentrates on time with his wife and son. He is an avid golfer, skier, and bike rider. He also enjoys gardening, beekeeping, spending time with his dogs, and working on an endless array of ongoing projects.
