After twelve years at several of the largest law firms in the country, including a stint as one of the youngest "big firm" department heads in state history, Pete Wellborn’s entrepreneurial spirit got the best of him. On April 2, 2001 – his 37th birthday – he founded The Wellborn Firm, LLC. The firm soon after expanded with the addition of fellow Georgia Tech alum Kelly Wallace to become Wellborn & Wallace, LLC (the “Firm”). The Firm’s guiding principle is the idea that attorney-Client relationships should be based upon people, not institutions and that, especially in this age of automation and technology, it is the skill of the attorney, not the number of attorneys, that matters. The Firm's Clients run the gamut from Fortune 100 corporate giants to start-ups and individuals. Its practice areas include Internet/technology, general commercial, and construction litigation; a wide array of corporate, transactional, and IP-related services; catastrophic personal injury cases; and a number of other niches in which the Firm’s attorneys have substantial experience over the past three decades. Since its founding, the Firm has obtained more than ten billion dollars in judgments for its Clients. The Firm’s legal victories have received worldwide publicity, from cover stories in the Wall Street Journal, Lawyers Weekly, and Boardwatch magazine to features on Good Morning America, CNN, and 60 Minutes II.
