What makes us different? Aside from zealously representing your interests at every stage of the proceeding, we make ourselves available when you need us. This is because we love what we do. We understand that when you are going through a divorce, you want lawyers that are available when you need them. This is why we respond to calls and emails not just from 9:00 to 5:00, but when you need us after hours. Even on weekends, our office phones are answered by live operators who immediately deliver your messages to us so that no emergency goes unnoticed.
Attorneys Wesley Clark and Mark Downton have represented hundreds of clients in civil rights and criminal cases in both state and federal court. We utilize our experience in complex litigation to fight for every client’s rights, whatever the case.
A recent notable achievement by our firm is in the case of Doe v. Hommrich, a class action civil rights case where we successfully represented children who were subjected to solitary confinement by Rutherford County’s Juvenile Detention Center. Working with the Tennessee ACLU, we obtained this first-of-its-kind decision in this federal district on March 27, 2017, prohibiting the use of solitary confinement as punishment of children in government custody.

In E.J. et al v Templeton et al, Downton Clark, PLLC, achieved another major victory for the citizens of Middle Tennessee. A preliminary injunction was entered on May 15, 2017 putting an end to the illegal detention policies of Rutherford County as part of a class-action civil rights case. See the story here.
