Scott P. McClintock has joined the firm of Clark & Glasgow to create the new powerhouse criminal defense law firm of Clark, Glasgow & McClintock, LLC. Mr. McClintock is a 1996 graduate of Monmouth High School where he was a member of two state championship golf teams. After graduating from the University of Illinois, Mr. McClintock went to work for the Jim Ryan for Governor campaign traveling the state with the Lt. Governor candidate Carl Hawkinson. Mr. McClintock graduated cum laude from Northern Illinois School of Law in 2006. He began his legal career as an Assistant State’s Attorney in Warren County, Illinois. In 2010, he was appointed the Henderson County State’s Attorney and was re-elected to that position twice. “I look forward to working with David and Steve. I believe it is a unique  opportunity to join a law firm with such an outstanding reputation for defending those accused of a crime. By adding someone who has worked on the prosecution side for a decade, I believe that we have an edge in that we bring a unique level of experience and knowledge unmatched by any law firm in this area. We have the ability to look at a case from every conceivable angle, not only through a defense perspective but through the eyes of the government as well. That allows us to apply the traditional strategies that have been effective as well as exceptional outside-the-box thinking and strategy. It is a perfect storm and I look forward to battling with my former colleagues.”
