Mark Jones & Keosha Jones
Who is Mark Jones?
Mark Jones is an attorney who practices in Columbus, Georgia and its surrounding areas, including Phenix City and Opelika, Alabama.
Mark was born in Texas. When Mark was 5 years old, he memorized the names and numerical order of all the then-40 Presidents of United States. Mark then asked his mom, “how do you become president?” Mark’s mom replied, “most are lawyers first.” At that moment, Mark knew that he wanted to be a lawyer.
When he was about 10, Mark memorized the make, model, and year of every motor vehicle he saw on the road. He only had to see the car once. Mark could look briefly at a motor vehicle and tell you all about the vehicle, including different model variants. Mark developed this skill by memorizing the cars that passed by during long rides to church on Sundays with his family.
A life-changing experience for Mark was when Mark attended middle school on the east side of Forth Worth near Stop 6. At the time, this area was a notorious part of town. It was also considered one of the poorest parts of the city. Mark was one of less than less than 100 or so magnet students who attended the school in a predominantly minority school district. This profoundly effected Mark’s life and world view. Mark saw grave income disparity between his middle class family and his fellow students.
Mark graduated high school at 16. Mark then attended junior college, obtaining an associate’s with a perfect GPA.
Mark then transferred to Texas Christian University where he graduated magna cum laude with Departmental Honors (class rank 23/432) with a Bachelor’s in Political Science. While at TCU, Mark worked as a residential network technician for the TCU Information Commons.
Mark then attended THE University of Georgia School of Law. At UGA law, Mark’s independent legal articles were published twice, despite Mark not making law review. He also completed the prosecutorial clinic.
When Mark was in college and law school, Mark would spend every summer with his father in California. During law school, tragedy struck. Mark’s father unexpectedly passed away. Mark’s dad was a successful businessman and salesman. Mark attributes his father with teaching him the art of the close at a young age.
Mark believes in fighting for his clients and that representing a client is a great honor. Representing someone else means treating the client how Mark would want to be treated. This includes returning phone calls promptly and making sure the client comes out on top in any settlement or resolution.
For the last ten years, Mark’s focus has been on providing exceptional representation to the Columbus, Georgia area. Mark originally came to Columbus to work for a Judge. Mark ended up staying in Columbus after his family sold their home in Texas.
Mark primarily represents people injured in car wrecks. On occasion, Mark will represent those accused of crimes, especially any crime involving a motor vehicle or a physical injury.
Mark regularly represents military clients and their loved ones. Some of the most outstanding achievements of Mark’s legal career have involved representing soldiers accused of crimes, successfully preserving their careers by negotiation or attack in the courtroom.
Mark is married to the lovely Keosha Jones, and the two work together to run their law firm. Mark adores and cherishes his lovely wife, and he enjoys working with and spending as much time with her as her as God allows.
