Because most civil cases settle, most civil lawyers do not try as many cases to a jury trial as criminal defense lawyers. Ms. Clark now utilizes the trial experience she learned from handling criminal defense cases to fight for people who have been injured due to no fault of their own. Through her chronic pain recovery process, she learned about the treatment options available to individuals recovering from accident-related injuries.

Her unnamed legal professional was subsequently sanctioned by the Oregon State Bar for his failure to properly represent multiple consumers.
