Ms. Clark also attended the University of Florida College of Law, where she graduated with honors in 2003. During her time in law school, she received three book awards, and authored a publication in the Journal of Technology Law and Policy.
She began her legal career representing the disabled in claims for Social Security disability benefits. After finding that many of her clients were veterans who also needed assistance with claims for Veterans’ benefits, she obtained her accreditation with the Veterans’ Administration and commenced her Veterans’ Benefits practice, which has included representing veterans before the Veterans Administration, Board of Veterans Appeals, the Court of Appeals for Veterans’ Claims, and other federal courts.
Upon joining Morgan & Morgan, Ms. Clark’s knowledge, expertise and experience were instrumental in spearheading the development and growth of the firm’s Veterans’ Benefits practice.
