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 pack my bags, leave the big city and practice in a place where I knew I could make a meaningful impact on the community I served. The emphasis on quality service as well as community involvement at WARDS LAWYERS PC gives our Firm a distinctive place in the community, not just as a lawyer’s office but a community leader. These values are reflected in every single member of the Firm and makes this Firm such a valuable 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 develop into a better lawyer under great mentorship.


Memorable Moment

During my first few weeks at WARDS LAWYERS PC everyone mentioned to me the difficulty in adjusting to such a tech-savvy office, but what really struck me 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 advice and he made sure that whatever solution was presented 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.
