    • I recommend Michael Ware.

    I had never had an encounter with the law until this year. I was falsely accused about petty larceny I was frustrated and disappointed of the investigation system until I found Michael and his firm My family and I appreciate his preparation, persistence and personality . The charges were dropped and the case against me was dismissed. I strongly recommend Mike and firm SCHEMPH & WARE, PLLC of legal consultants .They will do a great job.

    Michael Ware recently represented members of my family in multiple legal matters. Mr. Ware and his staff were highly personable, responsive and professional during every part of the processes. Mr. Ware was even able to get some matters resolved prior to the actual court room appearance. Beyond any doubt, based upon our personal experience, we would HIGHLY recommend Michael Ware to anyone in need of legal consultation and /or representation. AV

    • I recommend Michael Ware.

    Mr. Ware represented my wife and her two sisters in a lengthly and contentious litigation. He and his staff were courteous, dedicated and very responsive to our needs. We are so grateful for having Mike and Adrienne representing us and could not have hired any group that could have provided a greater level of service.

    • I recommend Michael Ware.
    • I hired Michael 6-12 months ago.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    In May 2014, this nonagenarian experienced her first-ever traffic accident and potentially serious legal consequences. She had planned to go-it alone until she shared her woes with a good friend who sternly said, "No, you're not.. Do you know a lawyer?" And promptly he engaged me with Attorney Michael B. Ware, Yorktown/Newport News, VA, for whom he has the highest regard and with whom I consulted the next week.

    What a relief to discuss the situation with Mike and to receive his thoughtfully presented advice and encouragement. His staff provided prompt, clear information about what I should expect. Mike call the day before the hearing to review what would take place and to see if I had further concerns or questions. While I knew well he couldn't guarantee a positive outcome, I was buoyed by his professional counsel and words of support. Case closed with a modest fine.

    Mr. Ware has my complete trust and his fee was reasonable. If ever again I need an attorney, I shall hasten to call Mr. Ware, and would unhesitatingly recommend him to anyone needing professional legal counsel and assistance.

    • I recommend Michael Ware.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Real Estate matter.

    I was a client of Mr Ware concerning a real estate transaction. Mr Wares attention to detail founds some issues with the deed that were nearly a hundred years old. Locating this error saved me thousands of dollars. I was tempted to negotiate this transaction on my own which would have been a disaster, thanks to Mr Ware for a job well done. A+++++ attorney.

    • I recommend Michael Ware.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Juvenile matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    We hired Mr Ware recently to represent our daughter as a juvenile. He informed our daughter and us what to expect exactly along with what the best courses of action would be to help the situation prior to appearing in court. He advised us of his fee at the beginning and billing statements were provided in a timely fashion for the services he provided. He took the time to get to know our daughter and her situation, and our daughter followed his advice and recommendations. The final disposition went very well (dismissed). I would highly recommend Mr Ware if you are in need of his services. He is honest, knowledgeable, personable and highly professional. We appreciated his expert services and will utilize him again if we need his services in the future.

    • I recommend Michael Ware.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    I hired Mr. Ware several years ago to represent my son as a juvenile. He informed my son and I what to expect and what our best course of action would be to help the situation. He advised of his fee at the begining and billing statements were provided regularly with all time disclosed and work fully described. He took the time to personally get to know my son, and my son followed his advice and recommendations. The final disposition went very well (dismissed).
    My son needed his services again and due to Mr. Ware's knowledge, time spent investigating the case, and working relationship with his peers, my son's most recent case was also a success.
    I have referred him to several friends (regarding non-criminal work) whom have informed me that his knowledge and experience has been exemplary. I will continue to refer Mr. Ware as well as call on his knowledge and expertise as necessary.
