Claimed Lawyer Profile

Attorney Clark graduated from Dartmouth College in 1989. He earned his J.D. in 1994 from the Washington College of Law at American University, where he served as managing editor of the Law Review, and his LL.M. in taxation in 1995 from the New York University School of Law. He was admitted to practice in New York in 1995 and Massachusetts in 2002.

Attorney Clark began his career in corporate tax, where he specialized in the global tax optimization of multinational corporate entities. Personal experience led to a career change, and Rob quickly learned that divorce is not like other litigation: It calls for a special kind of lawyer who can temper aggressiveness with practicality, one who will listen to his clients’ concerns, advocate fiercely for them and their children, and never be afraid to tell them when they are wrong. His mission is to be this kind of advocate.

With his background in finance, Attorney Clark is more comfortable than most at interpreting tax returns and financial statements, tracking hidden assets, and enabling his clients to keep the assets that are important to them. In the context of child custody, he believes firmly in working collaboratively to find mutual solutions that best serve children’s interests while addressing their parents’ concerns.

Attorney Clark is an active member of the Massachusetts Association of Guardians ad Litem, the Divorce Center, and the family law section of the Massachusetts Bar Association. He has been appointed from time to time as a guardian ad litem in care-and-custody investigations for the Probate and Family Courts, as well as appointed counsel in care and protection proceedings initiated by the Department of Children and Families. As a transplant to the Town of Hudson, he serves as chairman of the town finance committee and serves on whatever committee appointments come his way. He makes award-winning chili and barbecue, and he has climbed all 48 of New Hampshire’s 4,000-footers.
