Why I work at WARDS LAWYERS PC

When I got the opportunity to join the team at WARDS LAWYERS PC I knew it was a no-brainer. One of the things in my life that has always gripped me has been an adventure. With that in mind, I decided to leave the big city and practice in a community where I knew I could make a meaningful impact. The emphasis that WARDS LAWYERS PC places on quality service and building up the community makes this Firm such a rewarding place to work.  When I joined WARDS LAWYERS PC, I knew that I would have a fantastic opportunity to serve a great local community, as well as expand my practice and develop into a better lawyer under great mentorship.


Memorable Moment

What struck me about working at WARDS LAWYERS PC was the attention to detail and emphasis on providing quality service for each individual client. As a litigation lawyer I’d heard every joke in the book about lawyers who reap the misfortunes of their clients. Working at WARDS LAWYERS PC is different. I remember sitting in a client meeting with Jason working through a complex problem where he made sure the client understood every piece of pertinent information and presented solutions which fit the client’s needs. When I saw the positive approach to ensuring that our client’s needs and concerns were taken care of, I knew I was in the right place.

The Lord is my shepherd! My faith informs every aspect of my life, including my legal practice.  I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work at WARDS LAWYERS PC where I am engaged in a professional, conscientious and thoughtful approach to the practice of law.  There is no greater joy in my work than to achieve fair and just outcomes for our clients.  I hope that by my work I am able to serve humbly by Christ’s name - Micah 6:8.
