Why I work at WARDS LAWYERS PC

I have been a Family Law Clerk in Lindsay for 20 years. This past year I decided to make a change by joining WARDS LAWYERS PC because I needed a change and I respect this Firm’s integrity, reputation and the respectful way staff is treated. This Firm is on the leading edge for the latest in technology which makes it easier for me to do my job and help clients. The team at the WARDS LAWYERS PC is a family and I love how active the Firm is in the community, specifically how aware and supportive they are of mental health issues. The team encourages growth, continued learning and skill development. I am incredibly grateful to have transitioned to this Firm.


Memorable Moment

Not long after I started at WARDS LAWYERS PC we had a Firm event with team building games which included family members of the staff as well as the staff. In particular we had to build “boats” out of cardboard and paddle them a set distance with 2 persons in them. I ended up in the lake (in my clothes) helping my team and then the children of one of the staff members make it to the finish line in their cardboard boat. The enthusiasm of everyone was contagious and made me feel like part of the team.
