M. James Clarke, II: Attorney with Clarke, Phifer, Vaughn, Brenner & McNeill, PLLC
Attorney Awards


A large portion of Jamie’s practice involves representing clients in separation and family law cases. In custody cases, he helps clients focus on finding solutions which are in the best interests of the children, and which promote both parents’ relationship with the children. In alimony cases, he helps dependent spouses determine what their needs are, and makes sure that they receive adequate support. When representing the supporting spouse, he focuses on raising all available defenses, and making sure that the amount required to be paid is within our client’s ability.

In property settlement cases, he concentrates on finding and valuing assets. Many clients have worked hard to accumulate substantial assets, and he has experience in valuing and dividing assets such as investments, retirement plans, real estate holdings, professional practices, and closely held businesses.

Jamie also represents clients in a variety of other civil matters, such as accident injury cases, business disputes, construction disputes, actions to enforce or contest wills, and zoning matters.
