Troy Clark, a partner at Crowder Stewart LLP, is a trial and appellate lawyer who specializes in complex civil and business litigation, white-collar criminal defense, and state and federal appeals.

Prior to joining Crowder Stewart LLP, Troy served for more than five years as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia.  As a federal prosecutor, Troy led grand jury investigations and criminal prosecutions in all areas of complex white-collar crime, including government procurement and contract fraud, public corruption, bank fraud, mail and wire fraud, money laundering, tax crimes, healthcare fraud, environmental crimes, and corporate misconduct. Troy worked closely with various federal agencies and with civil and administrative regulators in parallel proceedings.  During his tenure as an AUSA, Troy appeared as lead counsel in hundreds of court proceedings and litigated evidentiary, plea, and sentencing hearings.  Importantly, Troy gained invaluable trial experience through trying, and winning, a significant number of federal jury trials.  In addition to his trial work, Troy represented the United States in post-conviction proceedings and appellate work before the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.  For his work in securing convictions in complex white-collar and multi-defendant cases, Troy received recognition from the United States Attorney’s Office and numerous law enforcement agencies.

Earlier in his career, Troy practiced with one of the oldest and most respected law firms in Georgia.  While there, Troy represented clients in a wide range of civil and business litigation matters, including business torts, contract and commercial disputes, employment disputes, business fraud cases, business governance and financial disputes, class actions, and other complex civil litigation.

Troy and his wife, Nicole, live in Evans, Georgia and both are actively involved in their church and community.   They attend the Central Church of Christ where Troy serves as a Sunday school teacher and Care Group Leader. In addition, Troy is a graduate of Leadership Columbia County and a past member of its Steering Committee, working to organize and facilitate successive leadership classes. Further, Troy is a graduate of Georgia Young Game Changers, a state-wide “leadership action program that brings together 50 of Georgia’s brightest minds under the age of 40, to help solve persistent challenges of one Georgia community.”  Outside of his leadership roles, Troy is involved with many other community organizations, including Kiwanis Club and The Augusta Training Shop.
