Child Support
I obtained Ms.Ware while living in another State. My ex husband was a resident of Ga. She, was able to get my court cost, attorney fees and back child support paid. I was very pleased with her and her paralegal who kept me well informed. I'm very grateful for the turn out..Great Job!

Very professional
I had a name change change executed for myself and my son. Fees were a bit misleading but everything else was handled very professional. I was given a time frame in which the work would be completed in the first meeting.
