Why I work at WARDS LAWYERS PC

Firstly, I must say I work in the most beautiful office, and have met some of the most amazing people. I thoroughly enjoy coming to work and conversing with the many wonderful clients that walk through the front door at WARDS LAWYERS PC.

I worked in the Education field for over 21 years and I was looking to pursue other interests and to increase my computer skills. Boy, was I in for the challenge of a lifetime! A paperless office!! I had to learn quickly, and the challenge was invigoration.

It’s a fantastic team of people that I work with here at WARDS LAWYERS PC. They give it their all and with a high level of professionalism that makes every day rewarding.

 


Memorable Moment

I was a new employee at WARDS LAWYERS PC and I had a lot to learn! Everyday there was a new obstacle to tackle. And I’m sure I was struggling!

It was a pleasant surprise to receive a note of appreciation from Jason/Melissa. I thought it was wonderful that an employer would take the time to express gratitude and appreciation to a new employee that was clearly finding technology a struggle.

That thoughtfulness does not happen often in a workplace, so that made it more memorable.

It made me feel amazing! And that is one of the many reasons I love coming to work each day.
