Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: I or my loved one was arrested, what do I do now?

A: First, you call Mark Jones and retain his services. Second, you say nothing to anyone about your case, especially the police. If the police ask you questions, repeat the following, “I am exercising my right to remain silent under the 5th and 14th amendments to the United States Constitution.” If a cellmate or friend asks you about your case, do not discuss it with them either under any circumstances. We cannot emphasize this enough. DO NOT talk to anyone about your case but your lawyer.

Q: My loved one is currently in jail accused of committing a crime, can they get bond/bail?

A: You have the right to be considered for bond after 90 days (also known as bail) in Georgia. Bond is assurance that you will return to court at the time of trial. Depending on the factors of the case, the judge will usually set bond in varying amounts. A denial of bond is possible, but there must be a basis for such a denial.

Q: What is an arraignment?

A: An arraignment is where the formal charges the government issues against you are read to you and you enter a plea of guilty or not guilty. In most cases, the arraignment is waived.

Q: What is an indictment?

Answer: An indictment is a formal accusation of charges issued against you. The indictment is presented to a grand jury, randomly selected group of citizens, hear the prosecution’s case at that time, and make a determination about the existence of probable cause. That is, whether there is sufficient evidence against you to conclude that a crime has been committed.

Q: What is probable cause?

A: Probable cause is something more than a hunch, but less than certain. It means there is a good chance that a crime has been committed.

Q: I received a DUI/DWI, what should I do now?

A: You should call Mark Jones immediately. There are strict time limits to attempting to preserve your license after a DUI or DWI. Depending on whether you took a blood test or an intoxilyzer, the evidence and procedures vary. Regardless, it’s critical that you call a lawyer to assist you in fighting your DUI charge. Driving under the influence is a major charge that can gravely impact your life – affecting college admissions, graduate school admissions, and job applications.

    Personal Injury Client

    In my experience Integrity is a rare commodity among Lawyers. I only had one case for Mark to work on but I could not have been given a more complete settlement and treatment. My rating is based upon just that; with no dissatisfaction what-so-ever. I'm sure, with each case being different, that such a high level of satisfaction may not be attainable yet I will keep Marks' name on record for any possible future litigation.
