Practice Areas

  • Professional Liability

David A. Clark’s experience includes 15 years as a prosecutor for the Office of Bar Counsel, including five years as Chief Discipline Counsel for the State Bar. He has extensive experience in attorney regulation for professional liability, attorney discipline and commercial litigation.

At the state bar, David prosecuted more than 1,000 attorney grievances from the investigation stage through trial and appeal.

Two of his cases, In re: Discipline of Droz and In re: Discipline of Lerner, resulted in reported decisions. He also worked on emergency suspension and reciprocal discipline petitions to the Supreme Court.

David also obtained several injunctions and contempt orders in state court against parties who practiced law without authorization and successfully defended the bar in California and Nevada federal court against actions over prosecutions.

He established the training program for the Southern and Northern Disciplinary Boards, obtained numerous changes to the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct and the Supreme Court’s rules for attorney discipline, and he drafted the Disciplinary Rules of Procedure that were adopted in July 2014 by a task force and the Board of Governors.

Before joining the state bar, David worked in private practice for 10 years in personal injury and commercial litigation.

He has presented a number of continuing legal education-certified seminars on attorney ethics and has spoken about ethics and attorney discipline to paralegal groups, fraud investigators and in-house for the Nevada Attorney General’s Office.

David has taught paralegal ethics and legal research at the College of Southern Nevada since 2004 and is a 19-year member of the Howard D. McKibben American Inn of Court in Las Vegas. He served as a board trustee of the Nevada Treatment Center for 20 years until it closed in 2013.

David is admitted in Nevada, California (inactive), as well as the District of Nevada, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court.

David A. Clark chosen by the APRL to Chair the newly formed Lawyer Well-Being Committee.

May 1, 2018 – The Lipson Neilson law firm is proud to announce that David A. Clark, a Partner in the firm’s Las Vegas office, has been chosen by the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers (APRL) to Chair the newly formed Lawyer Well-Being Committee. (Click here for Nevada Business Magazine article.)

This committee will act as a liaison with the American Bar Association (ABA), the National Organization of Bar Counsel (NOBC), and state-led efforts to implement the goals of the ABA’s National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being.

Various reports indicate that 40-70 percent of discipline and malpractice claims against lawyers involve depression or substance abuse.

As APRL’s follow-on commitment to act on the call of the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being for stakeholders in the legal profession to join in creating a better future for our lawyers, this committee will work with stakeholders and jurisdictions across the country to coordinate and implement state-level actions to improve the effectiveness, ethical integrity, and simple human experience of being a lawyer.

Judges, regulators, employers, bar associations, assistance programs, liability carriers, and law students are coming together in the goal that, “to be a good lawyer, one has to be a healthy lawyer.” APRL’s mission includes initiating positive changes in laws and regulations regarding professional responsibility and the development and implementation of sound ethical standards within the legal profession. All of that begins with a healthy, thriving, and connected lawyer.
