Profile Elder Law Firm of Clements & Wallace, P.L. Carol Wallace Sharp as a tack and with a full heart, Carol Wallace guides many families through some of their most stressful times at the Elder Law Firm of Clements and Wallace, P.L. Clients are set at ease not only by Carol’s compassion and kind demeanor, but also her breadth of experience in elder law. According to Carol, elder law kind of found her and she found herself practicing it before it even had a name! After graduating from The University of Alabama with a degree in social work, she felt the urge to go a different direction and attended Cumberland School of Law. Carol then returned to Tuscaloosa and joined the staff at The University of Alabama School of Law, where she administered a grant to provide legal services to seniors. She spent many nights in the law library researching laws to protect seniors. After a few years, Carol realized she had gained a body of knowledge that few attorneys had. Mark Clements Her partner, Mark Clements, is a third generation Lakelander and similarly has a highly specialized background in elder law. Having met back in law school, they were fast friends and have always had a strong respect and trust for one another. This dynamic duo calls their method of working “an art, not a science,” according to Carol, and they have formed a unique, collaborative law firm to find the best solution for each client. While many other firms have one attorney designated to senior problems, their partnership is solely dedicated to elder law. Both Carol and Mark are certified by the National Elder Law Foundation as Elder Law Attorneys. Carol was the first lawyer in Alabama with this distinction. With over thirty years of experience in elder law, clients can have peace of mind in knowing their loved ones’ affairs are taken care of. Clements and Wallace, P.L. 310 East Main St..
