Civil Litigation Injury

Why I work at WARDS LAWYERS PC

I have always been a people person. I want to help, to negotiate and to solve problems. For over 10 years, I represented insurance companies, gaining insight and understanding into how they manage personal injury claims. I now use my experience to effectively pursue claims for personal injury victims and their families, as well as other litigation matters.

Why do I work at WARDS LAWYERS PC? The Firm's driven, dedicated and hardworking people. Its strong community involvement. The shared value of the importance of family. A forward focus.

Working hard is important. The people at WARDS LAWYERS PC know how to balance hard work with family time and community involvement, which is even more important.

The Firm also has a fresh vision and focus on sustainability. The paperless practice allows the Firm to reduce environmental impacts, which is an important value for myself and my family.

Personal service, attention and diligence are the keys to providing the best legal representation. Having such a strong presence in the community enables WARDS LAWYERS PC to reach and assist clients in need. I am proud to be working with great people in a Firm with a commitment to helping every one of our clients.


Memorable Moment

My most memorable moments at WARDS LAWYERS PC have been attending the 2015 and 2018 Kids’ Road Hockey Tourneys.  There were hundreds of children, parents and spectators, along with numerous volunteers, joining together for some community fun and a good cause.  My daughter joined the WARDS LAWYERS PC team and helped host the Concussion Prevention and Safety Awareness booth where we were able to share injury prevention resources.
