Why I work at WARDS LAWYERS PC

I was looking for a new and challenging position using my existing skills and the opportunity to develop new ones. I wasn’t interested in working for just any law firm; I was even considering a total career change. I chose WARDS LAWYERS PC because they were way ahead of the rest in terms of technology and innovation and I believed that they were truly a family-oriented and family-friendly place to work. I chose wisely. I love my job and everyone I work with. This is truly a great law firm.


Memorable Moment

Walking into Jason’s office the first time and seeing his three computer screens. I wasn’t sure if he was running a law office or a spaceship! Right away I got my own double screens and soon after got my own “trips” (Jason's lingo for triple screens) – how cool that was! Not a lot of desk room left so I am back to doubles, but they are huge.

Reading the "office manual" before running my first “mass billing” – getting to the end and reading "Congratulations – you did it - now go have a coffee!"

I joined WARDS LAWYERS PC in 2006, bringing with me over twenty years of experience in many areas of law. I really enjoy  working closely with our clients and assisting them with all aspects of their corporate, commercial and succession/estate planning needs.
