Forget the rest, go for the best!!!
Mark was instrumental in my life going through my divorce. He did not have much to work with and I just knew there was no way I would win, but Mark was very detail oriented, and came up with the best strategy for my situation and we did, WE WON. Not only did he help me with the custody of my children but he advised me in other areas that still help me today, such as money savings and personal Interactions. IF you want someone to fight for what is right, and win, he is your guy.

Mark Wewers provides compassionate, expert family law representation
I first met Mark when I moved to Texas and wanted to ratify my divorce decree under my new state's law. He gave me excellent advice--some of which still sticks with me--and represented me professionally in court. He clearly had my best interests in mind. Several years later when another issue around the decree came up, I didn't hesitate to hire Mark. And as always--he gave sound advice, followed through and represented me very well during a very drawn-out, contentious case. He knows his trade extremely well, is thorough and compassionate. I would strongly recommend him to anyone!

My case lasted 2 years total. This is what you need to know
My case was complex; while there are many cases out there, mine was not ordinary. I was introduced to Mark by highly-reviewed lawyer from Dallas. Over two years, I collaborated closely with Mark. He is sharp, thinks quickly on his feet, and most crucially, he's seen it all. It was his intelligence, dedication, and vast experience that made all the difference. Thanks to him, we successfully closed the case, ensuring the safety of the relationship between my daughter and me. I told Mark that he was like a guardian and a knight standing by my side, which truly encapsulated the depth of my gratitude. As a young person facing unexpected situations that was overwhelming, Mark was there to listen, taught me invaluable wisdom and helped me make the right choices. I trust him, and I thank God I met him. If this comment resonates with you, reach out to Mark.

Best Divorce representation
Mark Wewers took over my divorce case after I had been working with my first divorce attorney for 7 months and gotten nowhere. Mark is assertive and an amazing listener and was able to represent myself and my two sons in a way that literally has changed our futures. Mark is attentive, responsive, and readily available. Mark's legal acumen assures you that you will be well represented against opposing council. He will have your best interests in the forefront and is honest and clearly communicates throughout the process.

Look no further, your search should stop here.
From the moment I met Mark I knew he was the right person for my case. I had my initial consultation with him and from that meeting it was a no brainer. This was my third time going through a custody case and by far and away Mark was the best lawyer I have used. As we discussed my situation, Mark took great notes, asked me pertinent questions, and began formulating a strategy for my case. I appreciated his honesty and his professionalism from the first meeting all the way to the conclusion of my case. I was never out of the loop and he handled my case exceptionally from day 1. He came up with a game plan and acted swiftly and decisively and was very honest in his approach. I always knew what the next step was and what was expected of me as his client, and he communicated his own expectations of himself to me. For me, experience matters and you could tell how versed Mark is in these matters as he has been practicing for a long time. He was more than fair with his fees, and I feel like he didn’t nickel & dime me for charges. Anything I needed he was always very responsive and through. I felt he always had my back and he was just as invested as I was. Anyone who has been through this before knows how challenging it can be, and how difficult it really is. From our first meeting, to the conclusion of my case Mark was right there with me, and he honestly gave me comfort and handled everything. It’s important to have the lawyer you chose be on your side and fight for you. I am so thankful that Mark was my attorney, and will exclusively be my attorney moving forward. I appreciate him so much, and can’t recommend him enough. Wish I could give extra stars, thank you again Mark.

Excellent Attorney
I was needing an attorney for a family law matter and Mr. Wewers was recommended by a friend. And I am so happy I called him and he took my case. It was extremely stressful but Mr. Wewers was always there to provide me the information I needed, looked after my rights and gave me very sound advice. He stuck with me through a multitude of changes and helped me to understand everything that was going on and explained everything to me fully. I truly appreciate all he did for me and cannot recommend him enough as a true advocate for someone going through a legal issue who needs someone that is in their corner and will not hesitate to fight for you.

Repesented me in a divorce
I found that Mark was very knowledgeable and provided me with great legal advice in a quick and efficient manner. He helped me keep my emotions from controlling me in this difficult time. He responded quickly and efficiently. His charges were fair and there was no unnecessary conferences with the opposing attorney. He always responded to the opposing attorney quickly in order to eliminate delays.

Outstanding attorney -- highly recommended
To put it succinctly, Mark is an outstanding attorney. Hiring Mark was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. Mark understands that divorce is not a casual, friendly affair. He makes himself available when you need him, and he listens to you. He also helps you understand the reality of your situation based on years of experience. He takes your case very seriously and fights for you and your assets. He is aggressive, but he has to be for your sake. I highly recommend him.

The best person to have in your corner!
Mr. Wewers is by far the best lawyer to have in your corner. He is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to get everything done as quickly as possible. He kept my levels of stress down to a minimal and I always knew he was looking out for my best interest. Can't say enough about him.

Service beyond the bill
Mark was all geared up for litigation when my child's father and I worked our own terms. Mark put on the finishing touches of the documentation and proved that he is professional whether he is billing 50 hours or 10. I was completely comfortable with his direction and while my child's father did not get 100% of his way...I'm totally satisfied!!!

If I could give him 10 stars, I would!
I had consulted with Mark a few years previously but was unable to retain him due to the county my first law suit took place in. When I was sued (yet again) a few years later, even after speaking with 10+ attorneys, Mark was the only one that stood out in my mind above the rest. While Mark is more expensive than some, listen to me when I tell you he was worth every penny. I was living across the country during this very stressful time, but could rest easy knowing my case was in his hands. He is just the aggressive, no-nonsense type of attorney I needed to represent me and my child. If you want someone knowledgable and tough; someone who you can trust is fighting for you; someone who will give you only the best legal advice, then call Mark Wewers. If I still lived in TX I would refer him to anybody and everybody. Since I am not though, I hope people can read this review and trust that they are making the right decision by retaining him.

Very thorough and honest, caring attorney
Mark was referred to me and I am so thankful. My ex and I had a good idea of how we wanted to split things going into the divorce, but Mark was instrumental in helping me understand the loopholes and simple things that make a large impact down the road. He was very thorough. I have and would highly recommend him.

Trust and Character
With minor. children in the home, one of my main concerns was protection for them, in all areas, from visitation to financial. Mark's knowledge of the law and what will be a solid agreement to stand the legal test of time is outstanding.. He was a pleasure to work with and very intuitive in understanding my concerns. I highly recommend him and he would be my first choice again. He is a man of character and I trust him.

Best Lawyer I've Hired
I hired Mark after my old lawyer dropped the ball. Mark was having to begin my case already in a hole. His knowledge prevailed and my outcome was exactly what I wanted. Definitely the best lawyer available, you always talk directly with him not a secretary or paralegal. Great communication and knowledge. I never leave review but he definitely deserved one.

Simply the best
I met Mark when I needed help with a custody modification suit. He was referred to me by a friend. I will never be able to thank him enough for all his hard work he provided for my children and I. His knowledge of the law and court systems is amazing. Never did I doubt him or the process. His advice for my children and, even when things were as low as they could be, was spot on. He is a lawyer who cares and is in it for the right reasons. I have lost count of how many people I have passed his name out to. If you happen to need family law help, you need Mark!

Good Experience
Mark was very attentive and professional during my family court case. He did the best he could to achieve the terms of our settlement given some pretty discouraging situations. I would use him again, but I hope to never have to.

Trustworthy Attorney
Mark was not only a trustworthy and competent lawyer who helped me get a decent and reasonable settlement in my divorce (of a 22 year marriage), but he kept me informed and helped me feel hopeful throughout the process.
