Galen L. Clark has been in the practice of law for over 19 years. The majority of his practice involves court room trial work (litigation). A large part of that litigation practice involves the defense of insurance cases where an insurance company hires him to defend a policyholder who is being sued. He also handles other civil litigation, business ligation, criminal defense, family law and business formation and structuring. Galen's cases have ranged from successfully defending a general construction company in a multi-million dollar lawsuit, defending insurance companies from claims of bad faith, helping a local Christian rock band in a recording contract conflict, defending some interesting criminal cases, and successfully defending numerous automobile accident trials.
Galen is a proud resident of Oldham County, Kentucky where he is involved in many civic activities including Rotary International (LaGrange Rotary Club) and Lions Club International (President and Secretary of the North Oldham Lions Club). He has been a volunteer football, baseball, and basketball coach with both YMCA and Oldham County youth programs. He is also an Assistant Scoutmaster for Boy Scouts of America. Before beginning the practice of law, Galen was involved in the Standardbred harness racing business where Galen owned, trained and drove trotters and pacers for several years in New York, Pennsylvania and Kentucky.
Galen was raised in Maine and moved to Kentucky in 1974. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Biology from University of Louisville and then studied at the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Louisville . Galen attended the Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville where he received his Juris Doctor.
