Harrison Kemp

Angela Mann and I started this firm aiming to provide Arkansans with the highest quality legal representation in the state. The need for a trial attorney usually only arises during a period of uncertainty and conflict. Clients expect and deserve that their attorney will have the competence and expertise to achieve their desired goals, and they also expect and deserve to participate meaningfully in their own case. We add value to our client’s cases by being better prepared than our adversary and by communicating openly, honestly and often with our clients. We are passionate about our practice. I have lived in Arkansas my entire life and I love this state and its people. My grandfather, Joseph C. Kemp, moved to Little Rock from the timber town of Dierks, Arkansas in the 1938. On the day he left Dierks, he had been working the lumber saw with his younger brother, Russell. As a practical joke, and for the third time that day, Russell shot a board through the saw that hit Joe in the chest. Fed up, Joe punched him in the mouth, walked out of the mill, and hitchhiked to Little Rock on a tree truck. He arrived at 2AM the next morning, possessing no education, money or clothes. When he got off the truck, he hid in the doorway of a store on Main Street and fell asleep. He was woken by Officer Milk of the Little Rock Police Department, who arrested him for vagrancy. The Air Force drafted him in 1941 until the end of the war. He attended Little Rock Junior College (UALR) and then went to Fayetteville, where he graduated law school in 1951. Following graduation, he clerked for Arkansas Supreme Court Justice George Rose Smith. He opened his law firm in 1953 and became Little Rock City Attorney in 1957, a position that he held until 1978. During that time, he argued a civil rights case to the United States Supreme Court. The opposing attorney was Thurgood Marshall, who would ultimately be appointed to that Court as one of its best and best-known justices. Of Joe’s three children, two became lawyers. My father was one of them. Of my father’s four children, two became lawyers. I am one of them, and I love what I do. I have been representing Arkansans in court since 2008, and I look forward to using that experience to get you the best results possible.

Brooke-Augusta Ware

of Counsel

In a sea of princesses, ghosts, kitty cats, and witches at the 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.

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 (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, 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 in 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 you are encountering in your personal life. Brooke-Augusta 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.
