Kaitlyn Clarkson, Esq.

Litigation Associate Attorney

Areas of Practice

After focusing on appeals and post-conviction remedies for years, Attorney Clarkson found that the best way to save someone from ineffective assistance of counsel is to be effective trial counsel. Switching now to focus more heavily on trials, she fights for your rights and makes sure every angle is utilized to get you the best possible outcome.

Attorney Clarkson will still handle appeals, post-conviction remedies, and mental health expungements.

Attorney Clarkson will continue to make sure the law is complied with and uphold constitutional rights so our citizenry does not lose them.

She handles everything from summary speeding tickets to murder.


Attorney Clarkson believes in the phrase “latius est impunitum relinqui facinus nocentis quam innocentem damnari.” Translated as “it is better to let the crime of the guilty go unpunished than to condemn the innocent.”

Every case is different, and so is every client. What may be best for one may not be an option for another. Knowing the case and the client, Attorney Clarkson can fight for what is best for each individual.

Hired Kaitlyn to represent my son with his probation violation. She went above and beyond. Represented him at his initial appearance and made contact with PO to help with a seedy release from incarceration. Excellent attorney.
From Google Business

Kaitlyn was PHENOMENAL! Always received call backs expeditiously when I left voicemails, her attorney fees are quite reasonable, acquired the lesser charge I was looking for, her staff always got back to me if she was busy, pleasant to talk to, and the biggest sweetheart. I HIGHLY recommend Kaitlyn.
