In 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 of the United States had told Sandra Day O’Connor she could be a Supreme Court Justice, the first woman to hold such a seat.
Brooke-Augusta'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 and law school, she believed that motto even more. She has always had a heart for service and helping those in need.
Serving as Circuit Court law clerk for two different judges, Brooke-Augusta 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 serving as Senior Litigation Attorney at Cordell Cordell, a robust family law practice, Brooke-Augusta 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 families are encountering in their personal lives. Brooke-Augusta takes pride in finding solutions that provide families with dignity and solutions that work for many years to come as families grows into their new structures.
She and her husband Pittman live in Little Rock with their seven-year-old daughter.
