  • Michael Rich Childs

    Mr. Ware and I met on a difficult divorce case a few years back. We were able to reach a settlement for our clients, but only after lengthy negotiations and an intense temporary hearing. Mr. Ware proved to be a notable adversary, but he is a better friend. We have since worked together on a number of cases and consult one another on matters quite often. I highly recommend Mr. Ware as an attorney. You will not be disappointed with the service he provides.

    Mr. Ware is an outstanding attorney who provides exemplary advice on Avvo. I would recommend everyone and anyone to him for representation. Even though I have been practicing fo 24 years, as a judge, magistrate, prosecutors, and in private practice, I learn valuable new information from him every day. A superb attorney.
