Hello, I’m Tim Clark, the newest addition to the Law Firm.
I was born and raised in the Seattle area, where I gained a great appreciation for the outdoors. When I was 13, my family moved to Mt. Prospect, Illinois, and shortly thereafter to Sulphur Springs, Texas.
I couldn’t wait to carry on my family’s Navy tradition (3 generations) so I enlisted in the U.S. Navy’s Delayed
Entry Program as a senior in high school. I went to Boot Camp in Orlando, and then to the first of MANY schools. It was in Orlando that I met the love of my life, Cindy!
We were married in Waukegan, Illinois while I was learning my new rate (job), Fire Control – which means “firing” and “controlling” the ship’s weapons systems. These weapons systems included the Vulcan Phalanx (CIWS) system, the Tomahawk cruise missile system and several radar systems.
I’ve served aboard two destroyers, the USS Dyess (DD-880) and the USS Jonas Ingram (DD-938), and two aircraft carriers, the USS Nimitz (CVN-68) and the USS John F Kennedy (CV-67). I was deployed on the Kennedy during Desert Shield/Desert Storm for the duration of the Gulf War. When I wasn’t stationed onboard a ship, I was a teaching new sailors about the Tomahawk Cruise Missile System.
I retired from the Navy as a Chief Petty Officer. After I retired, I worked for several years in residential construction and then became a security officer. For the last eight years, I’ve been the Account Manager (head security guard) for the lovely, over-55, gated community where my mother-in-law lives.
Working in a law office is a new experience for me, but providing excellent customer service has been important in all of my positions. Oh, and in case you noticed the same last names, yes, I’m married to the boss!
