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!

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.

Mark Wewers is an Excellent Attourney
I have to say Mark has done a great job from the first conversation and on, I had stressed so much about my situation and Mark made it so easy for me and my family. I haven't had to drive around like crazy to get the job done or take lots of time off work, I am thankful to have found an honest professional attorney and appreciate the true honest reviews they did help in my search for a great Attorney who has proven to show he is in fact Outstanding as mentioned. I am still super impressed at his quickness of getting things done and keeping me posted as needed.

Great Attorney
Mark provided very helpful advice, communicated via email constantly, and kept my goals in sight throughout the process. I don't think it could have been smoother or faster.

Mark Wewers' review from Grapevine
After interviewing five recommended lawyers, I chose to work with Mark because he was highly recommended by my two closest neighbors. They were correct in their assessment of him. While divorce may be only a legal matter to an attorney, it is that and an intensely emotional matter to us who are experiencing it. Mark patiently, kindly, professionally and truthfully guided me through this 17-month long process. When I couldn't think, he suggested. When I couldn't act, he did. When I asked for his experienced opinion, he gave it. When I asked for options, he laid them out. When I didn't understand, he took as much time as necessary to clarify for me. Mark was a strong advocate for me even when I did not choose to follow his recommendation. Mark's professionalism, the grace of God, and the love and prayers of family and friends carried me through this journey. I don't recommend anyone else take this journey. But if you're forced to, Mark will be a great guide.

Highly recommend Mark Wewers
Mark was straight-forward, and exuded a strong confidence all the while being very personable. I felt a sense of comfort that I had come to the right person to handle my divorce and that feeling never left me from beginning to end. He is knowledgeable, organized, and a strong advocate. Mark maybe a one person team, but that never hindered his responsiveness to me in any aspect. He kept me well informed at all times. I would never hesitate on recommending Mark to anyone needing legal assistance in family law.
