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 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 was a client of Michael and let me tell you he understands ,no bluff no tip toeing around stright to the point without dragging you down. Others in my area have used him and he is sought after like a super hero, His partner Bryan is just as good so if your in Jam go here...
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.
Mr. Ware has always been our go to, for traffic citations, and even helped us with work matters. Our repport has been for a many years, we also consider him a friend as well as our attorney, he has reresented me for a couple of driving citiations, since I turned 16 now in my 30's and Mr. Ware has always proven the truth, very knowledgeable, proffessional, and always challenges all matters in the courts with confidence. Rightfully so, because, he has won my disputes everytime.
His staff and colleagues and also been vital , helpful, and always putting the clients needs in consideration.
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.
I am very disappointed with Mr. Ware. After we signed a flat rate contract, he suddenly decided to switch to hourly rate. He took advantage of us and started to send us bills without any progress. We then decided to switch to a different lawyer and what a difference. The new attorney was so honest, informative, and helpful. The new attorney was able resolve our cases in no time.
I would not hesitate for a second to hire Mr. Ware again if needed. He took on an extremely complicated case and straightened it out in record time. He was kind, caring and patient every time I called him. If you want a smart knowledgeable lawyer on your side, hire him. you will not be sorry.
Extremely knowledgable of Virginia law; has handled many cases and knows many people within the court system, which comes in handy often times; I was very satisfied with the outcome of my case, the manner in which it was handled and the professionalism Mr Ware has at all time; I have referred him on handle other cases for people that I know and all have been extremely happy also.
Mr. Ware is professional, courteous, and personable. We were extremely stressed over our situation and he calmed us down and reassured us that he felt confident that this would turn out in our favor. However, he did not take things for granted. He did his homework and was able to cite different but similar cases before the judge which, we feel, had a major impact on the dismissal charges. He was amazing in the courtroom--calm, collective, respectful to all, to the point and really smart. Mr. Ware has changed our opinion of attorneys in general. We need to clone him. We would not hesitate for a minute in recommending him to anyone.
