Wake A. Wagner

Mr. Wake A. Wagner is the founding attorney of Wagner Law Office. He focuses his practice primarily in the areas of business law and contract litigation.

Mr. Wagner has a passion for small, family and mid-sized business.  Growing up in Winston-Salem, NC his parents owned and operated, and in fact still operate, a small business.  As Mr. Wagner began his education he learned a great deal as to the complexity of many issues and possible legal pitfalls of business ownership. 

As he attended law school it became clear that small business needs a higher level of legal representation than they often receive.  However, imperative legal representation is,  the fact is that smaller business simply cannot afford the constant legal attention that large corporations benefit from.  Large corporations can afford to hire an army of attorneys, both in-house and external to represent their needs. However, small business simply cannot.

Prior to founding the firm in 2003 Mr. Wagner worked for a small Charlotte law firm practicing in a broad range of civil mattes including litigation, collections, commercial or business litigation including contract disputes and business torts, business formation, as well as insurance litigation and coverage issues.

Upon founding Wagner Law Office Mr. Wagner decided to focus his practice on providing family-owned, small and mid-sized business with the legal representation they need at prices and in a manner that they can afford.

Currently, Mr. Wagner represents a number of Winston-Salem area businesses and individuals in their legal matters.
