Defense lawyer John Clark dead at 58

The common man has lost one of his best advocates.

John Clark, a prominent local defense attorney, died this morning following a long battle with cancer. He was 58.

Earlier this year, the Spokane Bar Association honored Clark with the 2010 Smithmoore P. Myers Professionalism Award for Clark’s passion in working — often without pay — to help residents in legal trouble.

“There was once a comment made by Gandhi,” said Robert Crary, Clark’s partner of 30 years told The Spokesman-Review in March “that nobody is beyond redemption. It’s the way (Clark) looks at the world.”
