Judy Clarke

After receiving her law degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law, Ms. Clarke joined the Federal Defenders of San Diego as a trial attorney.  Within 5 years, she took the helm of that organization, and then served as the Executive Director, while continuing to try cases in the federal court in San Diego.

  • State of South Carolina v. Susan Smith (Union, South Carolina)
