Firm Overview

For more than 50 years, Warner Angle has been dedicated to honest and caring legal representation


Best Law Firms®: Warner Angle is a 2018 Tier 1 (Phoenix Metro) firm for Construction Law and Construction Litigation | Tier 2 for Real Estate Law


Founded in 1959, Warner Angle Hallam Jackson & Formanek PLC is a distinguished law firm that is dedicated to providing the highest quality service in a wide range of legal matters. Evidence of our high legal standards and the respect with which our attorneys are viewed by our peers in the Phoenix legal community includes:

  • four Super Lawyers® selectees,

  • four attorneys listed in the Best Lawyers in America®, and

  • nine AV-Preeminent® ratings by Martindale-Hubbell

Our reputation is based on our dedication to providing honest and caring legal representation. Whether our law firm is handling a divorce or a commercial real estate dispute, you can be certain that we always have your best interests in mind.

Our years of experience in diverse areas of law provide a “one stop” solution to your unique legal needs. We understand that legal issues are rarely confined to one legal discipline, and often cross the boundaries of several areas of law. For instance, if you are considering a divorce, our real estate attorneys can assist in analyzing and providing advice concerning any real estate issues in your case, and our estate and trust attorneys are available to assist in structuring a property settlement agreement that appropriately allocates any property held in a trust. You can feel confident that we offer a comprehensive approach focused on addressing all of your legal needs.

The firm is active in many areas of civil practice, with an almost equal division between litigation and non-litigation matters. Our knowledge extends to a broad range of legal areas, including:

Leaders in the Legal Community

We have built a trusted reputation as leaders in the legal community. Several of our Phoenix lawyers have served in leadership positions in prominent legal organizations, including local and state bar associations. We are committed to sharing the knowledge we have gained throughout the years, not only with our clients but also with other legal professionals. We have educated other attorneys through continuing legal education classes and lectured at a wide range of seminars.

The firm can be easily described as a small firm with big-firm experience. Our small firm size allows personal service and accountability to our clients. However, the breadth of services offered and the depth and diversity of our attorneys’ experience allows us to meet and exceed our clients’ needs.

Throughout our venerable history, we have gathered strength from attorneys who began their careers with us and remained part of our firm through the years. Many of our lawyers started their careers with us as law clerks or paralegals, and are now leading partners in the firm. Our law firm is comprised of more than 20 attorneys, each of whom has strengths and experience that are geared toward the specific types of cases they handle. From attorney Larry Schafer, with a master of law degree in taxation, to Dean Formanek, who is an elected member of the American College of Mortgage Attorneys, each of our lawyers possess a unique perspective and knowledge base. We take pride in the advanced degrees and distinguished qualifications held by our attorneys.

When you select Warner Angle, you gain the benefit of our years of experience and legal skills. The firm represents both large and small businesses, individuals and commercial enterprises, handling a wide array of legal issues.
