Wendell Franklin

About Attorney Wendell Franklin

"It’s not about the lawyer, it’s about the client."

Wendell Franklin is an attorney with Chuck Clay & Associates. His areas of special concentration include premises liability, product liability and medical malpractice. Wendell brings 13 years of legal experience to his role, having previously served as an associate at a law firm. He is a member of the State Bar of Georgia, Atlanta Bar Association and the American Bar Association.

An Atlanta native, Wendell completed his undergraduate work at Morehouse College and earned his J.D. at Georgia State University. He completed externships with the Georgia Supreme Court and the Securities & Exchange Commission (Atlanta Office). Wendell served on the Georgia State College of Law Moot Court Board from 1998 to 2000, receiving multiple Moot Court honors during that period.

Wendell chose a career in law with a desire to resolve conflicts and ensure just outcomes (possibly inspired by watching one too many episodes of L.A. Law). Despite his longstanding appreciation of the legal profession, he managed to acquire quite a variety of other experiences before entering practice: Wendell was a Sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves and an actor working in various off-Broadway plays and regional theatres that included The Culture Project, Huntington Theatre, Berkeley Rep, La Jolla Playhouse, Illinois Shakespeare Festival, Cleveland Playhouse, Arkansas Rep and Weston Playhouse.

Today Wendell lives in State College, PA with his wife, Aquila, and their three children. His interests include cooking, theatre, film, photography and martial arts.
