Biography

Clayton Tartt is a trial attorney for Parkman White, LLP with substantial trial and litigation experience. He has experience in criminal defense work that long precedes his joining the firm. As a young attorney who caught the eye of the Parkman & White firm during both Alabama state bingo corruption trials, he maximized his amount of experience as a student and a young lawyer.

Mr. Tartt, born in Livingston, Alabama, graduated Cum Laude from the University of West Alabama with a B.A. in History and a minor in Political Science. Mr. Tartt then graduated from Faulkner University's Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in Montgomery, Alabama, in 2010 in the top 25% of his class.

While in law school, Mr. Tartt worked as an intern for the Georgia Innocence Project in Atlanta, helping inmates seeking post-conviction DNA testing in Alabama. He also worked for the Federal Defenders for the Middle District of Alabama, where he did research and investigative work for federal criminal trials and capital habeas petitions for inmates sentenced to death row in Alabama. He was a Senior Editor of the Jones Law Review, competed on four regional and national Moot Court competitions, was a member of the Executive Council of the Board of Advocates and was a 3L Senator to the Student Bar Association. Mr. Tartt also established and was the President of the Jones Public Interest Legal Foundation which raised awareness and money for law students who volunteered their summers in the non-profit public interest sector.

After passing the bar, Mr. Tartt began work with Copeland, Franco, Screws, & Gill of Montgomery. The firm was part of Milton McGregor's defense team in the high profile Alabama bingo corruption trial. Mr. Tartt was responsible for handling discovery, conducting general research, trial planning, and exhibit preparation. After nearly two years and two lengthy trials, the case resulted in the acquittal of his client.
