Mr. Clark has also represented victims of sexual harassment, including quid pro quo incidents and hostile working environment situations, and he has assisted clients who have been wrongfully terminated or who have been the targets of other types of prohibited retaliation. His employment law experience has additionally included wage and hour violations.

After graduating from law school, Mr. Clark served for over two years as an attorney at the New York City Law Department, where he handled labor and employment law matters.
