A Thoughtful But Firm Voice
Working with Mrs. Waring was a great experience. She was thoughtful but a firm voice and worked proactively on my behalf. She provided clear guidance and direction throughout the process. She also made sure that the process was complete expeditiously on my behalf. She has deep knowledge of the law and lieu court cases that set precedents for specific legal actions.

Excellent attorney
I contacted and hired Attorney Gwendolyn Waring to assist me with my Mother's estate. Mrs. Waring gave me excellent assistance, helped me every step of the way and I was able to be the Administrator of my Mother's estate instead of my brother who isn't even in the state. Excellent customer service.

Best Lawyer for the job!
My experience with Gwen’s work was excellent. I hired Gwendolyn S. Fortson Waring to help me resolve my divorce in 2008. She went above and beyond to make certain that the process went as smoothly as possible. I highly recommend her services! You will be in good hands with Gwen!

Thorough and a fighter
Mrs Waring is personable, detailed and honest. She is interested in what’s right and fights to expose what’s true. She is very informative and she fights for what’s right.

Very helpful
Helped me with two employment issues: one wherein former employer had given incorrect account of my work and reason for leaving, second was assistance/advice on work application questions. Finally, on the death of my brother in Germany she gave me connection to an attorney in Germany. In each case she did not charge me!!

Professional Excellence
My daughter hired Attorney Gwendolyn Waring to help her when all the blocks were stacked against her in an employment dispute with a top employer in the Augusta, GA area. What a relief I felt when I knew that she was in my daughter's corner. She was polite, professional and all business. Amazing Results--I recommend her highly to everyone needing a Warrior in their corner!

Beware !
This woman is a scam artist. She will take your case then do the bare minimum, mess up pleadings and fail to file evidence on your behalf.
