Our History

Clark, Perdue & List History – Committed To Excellence

Edward L. Clark, Jr.

Edward L. Clark, Jr. (1948 – 2002)

Clark, Perdue & List is a name that has become synonymous with law firm excellence. Founded in 1986 by Dale K. Perdue and the late Edward L. Clark, Jr., the Firm has evolved from a traditional, Ohio based personal injury firm into a regional and national leader in mass tort litigation.

Today, the firm remains true to its roots – handling catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death claims arising out of automobile and truck crashes, fires and explosions, nursing home abuse, and defective products. At the same time, the firm’s representation of individuals has grown to include injuries and losses resulting from defective medical devices and dangerous pharmaceuticals, as well as consumer fraud. And, the firm’s representation of consumers has expanded regionally and nationally to include complex class action and multi-district litigation.

Despite our growth, we remain committed to the ideals contained in one of Ed Clark’s favorite quotes:

“Far and away, the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” –Teddy Roosevelt
