Why I work at WARDS LAWYERS PC

I'm new to the legal field, having come from a banking background.

Yes, lawyers are serious, but they can be fun too. Every lawyer at WARDS LAWYERS PC has been friendly and accommodating as I take on my new role. They are very approachable and available (which I was not expecting).  The support staff at WARDS LAWYERS PC has been invaluable to me. I recognize that every client is in good hands.

I had a preconception that lawyers would be set in their ways. This couldn't be further from the truth at WARDS LAWYERS PC. Everyone at WARDS LAWYERS PC is constantly striving to be more efficient in their work and always looking to improve the experience for each and every client. 

It is refreshing to work for a company that is so community based, professional and forward thinking.


Memorable Moment

The staff at WARDS LAWYERS PC are awesome. They are incredibly hard working, but fun to be around at the same time. The lawyers are nice easy-going people as exhibited at this past years Christmas party when we were all treated to a private concert by High & Tight featuring our very own Jason Ward and a couple of less desirables who shall remain nameless. They could really sing! Who knew? I didn’t.

A message from Laura

Prior to working at WARDS LAWYERS PC, I worked in the banking industry for just under 15 years. I also have 3 years of experience bookkeeping for local small business. I love working with numbers almost as much as I like working with the public. The role of Firm Administrator allows me to work with both. It took me a few months to ‘learn the ropes’ of this position and I don’t ever expect that it will be completely smooth sailing but that is what keeps me motivated. There is always a new daily challenge.
