Nathan Clark has defended high-profile federal criminal cases since 1981. His first case was an appeal of a criminal tax shelter prosecution by DOJ, which resulted in a published opinion by the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. United States v. Barshov,  722 F.2d 842 (11th Cir. 1984). In 2010, the Miami Chapter of the Florida Criminal Defense Lawyers awarded Nathan Clark and each of the Liberty City Seven Defense team its annual “Against All Odds Award” in honor of criminal defense attorney Rodney Thaxton through 2 successive mistrials and a mixed verdict in the third trial, during a two year period . USA v. AUGUSTINE, Case No. 06-20373-CR-LENARD, Judge Joan A. Lenard

Nathan Clark has successfully defended his clients, on cases which included non-tax counts, to full verdicts of acquittals in the following cases (the significance of the distinction is that on tax counts ignorance of the law is an excuse, but in non-tax counts ignorance of the law is not an excuse, according to U.S. Supreme Court precedent):
