Andre Clark was always interested in real estate, getting into the industry in 2005, where he would end up managing 250 single-family homes and 110,000 square feet of commercial space. In 2018, his passion for the field drove him to become a real estate attorney and open his own firm, the Law Office of Andre Clark, serving Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside, and Los Angeles Counties in California. His extensive background in real estate helps him seamlessly navigate the complexities of contractual issues for his high-profile clients, whether he’s drafting, reviewing, or enforcing those contracts. “I love what I do,” he says. “It reminds me of a math problem; I put the pieces together to find an answer.” And he’s managed to find many answers, including in a Ninth Circuit oral argument he held in only his first year as an attorney—a decision that would go on to be published.
As the leader of a thriving law practice, Andre works with several of-counsel attorneys who team up with him as needed. Clients appreciate the wealth of knowledge that Andre and his colleagues offer, as well as the time and energy dedicated to their cases—as well as his commitment to transparency and open communication. And while he is powerful force in the courtroom, before he even takes on a case, he always conducts an audit of it first to help his clients avoid that scenario whenever possible. All these practices have earned him high Avvo ratings. “I’m always paying attention to what my clients’ expectations are and making sure I meet them,” he says. “I’m very proud to be transparent.”
