Our Services

Our success is dependent on the success of our clients. We have a long and successful history of assisting our clients with their legal issues. Contact us today to get started.

Personal Injury

A person who acts negligently is required by law to pay for all damages incurred. All drivers on Georgia’s roads must exercise reasonable caution under the circumstances. If such care is not taken and an accident occurs, they are liable for all damages. If you have been injured as a result of another person’s or organization’s carelessness, negligence, or irresponsible behavior, you may have a valid personal injury claim.

As you are likely to suffer some form of loss from accidents involving motor vehicles, you will have a claim arising from your injuries. This also includes claims against the at-fault motorist and uninsured motorist claims. Before speaking with an insurance company adjuster, making any statements that could be used against you, or settling for less than you deserve, arm yourself with our free and valuable information.

What Should You Do If You Are in an Accident?

You should obtain as much correct and complete information as possible at the accident scene (it will be much more difficult to get vital information later). We have compiled a list of items you should obtain at the accident scene:

Driver’s name, address, date of birth, telephone number, driver’s license number, and insurance company name and phone number.


Vehicle’s make, year, model, and license plate number. Names, addresses, telephone numbers, and insurance companies of the other vehicle’s legal and registered owners (if the driver is not the owner).


Names, addresses, and telephone numbers of any passengers in the other vehicle.


Names, addresses, and telephone numbers of witnesses to the accident. Ask them to stay to talk to the State Patrol or police. If they cannot stay, ask them to explain what they saw and, if possible, write everything down.


Names and badge numbers of any law officer who came to the accident scene. Ask the officer where and when you can get a copy of the accident report. Make a simple diagram of the accident scene on paper; make notes of traffic conditions, weather, time of day, and any objects such as traffic lights and signs in the area. Also, if you have a camera, take pictures of the scene.

Family Law

Many people are unprepared for the difficulties that come with divorce. If you are considering divorce or your spouse has filed for divorce, The Law Offices of Mark L. Wells, P.C. in northern Georgia can assist you. Our firm has extensive experience working on various divorce matters as a Georgia family law attorney with over 31 years of experience.

Family Law Issues We Handle

We assist clients in filing and responding to divorce petitions, drafting and negotiating settlement agreements, facilitating mediation, arranging visitation schedules, and resolving alimony issues.
Child Custody
We have extensive experience litigating and establishing appropriate custody and visitation arrangements for divorced couples with minor children.
Child Support
We have extensive experience in child support matters under Georgia child support guidelines and are well-versed in the new guidelines that went into effect on January 1, 2007. We work on support issues to find appropriate solutions for the situation.
Property and Debts Division
Allocating the spouses’ property is a part of the divorce process. We can assist you in protecting your separate assets as well as obtaining an equitable division of your marital property and debts. Divisible assets include homesteads, furniture, automobiles, 401K assets, pensions, stocks, and more.
We can assist you in negotiating reasonable alimony settlements. From the tax implications of alimony to changes in circumstances that affect alimony payments, our team will work tirelessly to protect your interdependence.

Estate Planning

Everyone should have a will and a healthcare directive in place. More estate planning is required for larger estates (over $5,000,000), but a simple will (whether with minor children) is required. You should also appoint a guardian to care for you in your old age and decide whether you want to “pull the plug” if you become irreversibly incapacitated. We walk you through each step, so you know what each document does.

Criminal Defense

When you are charged with a crime, your decisions will determine the outcome of your case. Take any criminal charges seriously. The best decision you can make is to immediately hire an experienced criminal defense attorney familiar with the prosecutors, judges, and court procedures in metro Atlanta. There is no such thing as a criminal charge that does not necessitate the services of an experienced lawyer. Even minor offenses can result in jail time, hefty fines, and other long-term complications. Those convicted of a crime in Georgia must live with the blemish on their record for the rest of their lives.

We have spent the last 31 years fighting for the rights of Georgians who are going through one of the most challenging phases of their lives. We try to remove the fear from the process, fighting hard to protect our clients’ rights. We will build a comprehensive defense that seeks to have charges reduced, dismissed, or acquitted.

United States citizenship is incredibly rewarding, but the road to citizenship is long and difficult. We can also assist in obtaining temporary work permits. This is why it is necessary to hire an experienced immigration law firm to guide you through the entire process. We have won citizenship time and time again for our clients, giving us the knowledge to overcome any roadblock that may arise in the citizenship and naturalization process.

Naturalization is the legal process for a non-citizen in a country to become a citizen of that country. To apply for naturalization, one of the following must describe your situation:
You have a Green Card and have lived in the United States for five years.
You have asylum and have lived in the United States for four years.
You are the spouse of a U.S. citizen and have lived in the country at least three years.
You are a permanent resident, have served in the United States military, and have been in the country for three years.
For each of the above situations, there are additional requirements you have to meet, which we can walk you through. The naturalization process also requires speaking, reading, writing, and much more. Once you win citizenship, you will finally enjoy the full benefits of the United States.

Deferred Action – This is an excellent program for young people that have entered the U.S. borders illegally. If you arrived in the United States prior to your 16th birthday, and you entered prior to June 15, 2007, then you may be eligible for the Deferred Action program (DACA). Approval of your Deferred Action application will enable you to obtain a Work Authorization and prevent deportation. We have successfully helped many clients obtain approval for Deferred Action.
