Brooke-Augusta Ware

Senior Litigation Attorney

Little Rock divorce attorney Brooke-Augusta WareIn a sea of princesses, ghosts, kitty cats, and witches at her third grade Halloween party, Brooke-Augusta Ware stood robed with her hair in a bun, bearing a gavel. She was dressed as Sandra Day O’Connor. Her parents had told her she could do anything she wanted (maybe figuratively, maybe literally), and in the early ’80s, the president had told Sandra Day O’Connor she could be a Supreme Court Justice, the first woman to hold such a seat.

Ms. Ware’s parents also told her, “To whom much is given, much is expected.” This is the cornerstone of her legal philosophy. As she was able to attend college (Hendrix College, B.A. in history with honors) and law school (Bowen School of Law, J.D., with high honors), she believed that motto even more. She has always had a heart for service and helping those in need.

Serving as a law clerk for the Pulaski County Circuit Court for two different judges, Ms. Ware had ample opportunity to provide access to justice and assist the public in understanding the judiciary. Providing dignity in the legal process made her proud of the judicial system and her role in it.

Now in a robust family law practice, Ms. Ware assists families undergoing major changes and family restructuring. Whether it’s a divorce, a custody or child support matter, a guardianship, or an adoption, she provides a calm center to the storm you are encountering in your personal life. Ms. Ware takes pride in finding solutions that provide you and your family with dignity and solutions you can work with for many years to come as your family grows into its new structure.
