I live out of state and hired Philip to represent me on a domestic assault case. He took care of everything before I returned to court. I walked in and out in less than 30 minutes. Philip was able to get my case dismissed after I finish a short class. I don’t even have to come back to court!! He is great!!


A friend of mine contacted PNC Law for legal advice. Philip was quick to respond and offered sound advice to help out. Because of the guidance and suggestions provided by PNC law, the situation was able to be resolved quickly and effectively. PNC law is the perfect option for anyone in the Nashville area in need of sound legal advice.


I was looking for legal advice and came across Philip’s contact information. First, Philip is the one who actually answers the phone, not some lengthy machine. He was very attentive the entire time we spoke about my situation. He gave me direct feedback and his advice actually helped me to stay out of court. He seemed genuinely interested in helping me and not just after a paycheck. While I did not go on to hire him, I do certainly recommend him. Thank you very much for the help, Philip!


We hired Philip to help with a legal matter that we needed taken care of quickly and painlessly. I can happily say that he made us feel very comfortable and was always there to answer any questions we had. He always answered calls or responded very quickly to emails/calls. We got the results we wanted and would highly recommend him. I hope we never need an attorney again, but if we do I would not think twice about hiring him. And if he could not help us I would 100% trust any recommendation he had.


My roommate and I got into an argument and he was the first to call the police. Somehow he convinced them to take me to jail, even though I was the one with bruises. Mr. Clark represented me and took the time to explain everything to me. He told me that I could not go to my house because the Order of Protection was in place. I had no idea and might have been arrested. Mr. Clark was great about answering my calls and text. When my court day came, he was very confident in the courtroom and you could see that he knew the judge and the district attorneys. He had me sit in the courtroom and then later, told me that my case was dismissed and I could leave. I was both surprised and relieved!! I highly recommend Mr. Clark for anyone who may need criminal defense. He was a great help to me!!
