Justin Clarke is an attorney, former government official, and former presidential campaign official for Donald J. Trump. However, now he’s serving as an active member of Donald Trump’s legal team and was part of the meeting that took place at the Trump Hotel for discussing the Senate impeachment trial. Over there, he made several announcements and told Bruce L. Castor Jr. that Mr. Trump doesn’t want him to appear in front t of the media for his widely panned performance. However, over the years, Justin has earned millions. Clarke has earned megabucks from serving as an attorney to a government official and Trump’s presidential campaign’s official, and his salary is substantial. He charges a considerable amount per hour for providing his services. We have estimated that Justin Clarke’s net worth in 2021 is approximately $40 Million – $50 Million.
Jay Sekulow is the Chief Counsel for the ACLJ (American Center for Law & Justice). The ACLJ is Pat Robertson’s Christian social activism organization. Sekulow has been part of a multitude of cases in the Supreme Court. Sekulow also has a radio show and appears on multiple TV and radio programs. He had close ties with the Bush administration.
There have been questions about Sekulow’s earnings, considering that he works for an activism organization. Here’s what was written in the Legal Times about him: It is the Jay Sekulow who, through the ACLJ and a string of interconnected nonprofit and for-profit entities, has built a financial empire that generates millions of dollars a year and supports a lavish lifestyle — complete with multiple homes, chauffeur-driven cars, and a private jet that he once used to ferry Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. According to that article, Sekulow earned over $600,000 per year in 2001 and had his nonprofits spend over $2 million to invest in real estate. They also have paid to lease a jet and other items. Sekulow is likely being paid between $1000-2000 per hour to represent Trump. In total, we estimate that Jay Sekulow’s net worth in 2021 is approximately $30 Million – 50 Million.
Marc Kasowitz is the founder of the law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres in New York. Kasowitz attended Cornell Law School before going to work at a firm in New York. He has previously defended Bill O’Reilly. Kasowitz has worked with Trump for decades, in his cases regarding Trump University, his divorces, his bankruptcies, and more. He has little experience working on criminal cases. Kasowitz has also represented Russian oligarchs. In 2017, he departed Trump’s legal team, which was due to the fact that he had close ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Kasowitz charges $1500 per hour. That equates to a salary of over $2 million annually after overhead. We estimate Marc Kasowitz’s net worth in 2021 is approximately $15 Million – 20 Million.
