American attorney who moved into a high profile as the prosecuting attorney on the O.J. Simpson case.
The daughter of a government administrator, she moved a lot as a kid when dad relocated, a first-born child. Graduating UCLA in 1974, she passed the bar in 1979. For the next two years she worked as a criminal defense lawyer with a small Los Angeles firm and joined the D.A. office in 1981. Her salary was somewhere between $74 and $96 thousand. She chalked up 20 murder prosecutions including the 1991 trial of Robert Bardo.
Very private, focused, ethical and tenacious, she is noted for a sense of humor and personal warmth. She likes the celebrity and the press conferences, which she handles with a great deal of poise.
A former ballet dancer, she works out with a regular trainer at a local gym. Said to be tough, a bone-buster, she can drink or cuss a guy under the table when the occasion calls for it.
Married for 12 years, she has two young sons and filed for divorce 6/09/1994. Her first husband was gambler Gabriel Horowitz and her second, Gordon Clark. During the media-circus-trial, her name was linked with that of her fellow attorney, Chris Darden. Her biography reveals that she was sexually assaulted at 17 by a hotel waiter while on a trip to Europe.
The notorious Simpson case began with a preliminary hearing on 7/01/1994 and concluded with his acquittal on 10/03/1995, a sorry loss for Clark.
Her memoir "Without a Doubt" came out in 1997 with a $4.2 million advance from her publisher. She was for the most part keeping out of the limelight except for outings with her boyfriend, blues musician Mitch Kashmar, 36.
In 1998, Clark hosted the Fox network special, "Lie Detector" and she frequently substitutes for Geraldo Rivera in his CNBC-TV show, "Rivera Live."
