Why I work at WARDS LAWYERS PC

Throughout my career I have been fortunate enough to work a few different firms both in Toronto and the City of Kawartha Lakes.  After staying home to raise my two amazing children for a few years, I decided it was time to leap back into the workforce.  I joined WARDS LAWYERS PC in the spring of 2016 and I am happy to report that WARDS LAWYERS PC is my most treasured job to date.  I love the cutting-edge vibe that flows through the people and technology at this firm.   Everyday I seem to gather more invaluable knowledge from our group of experienced lawyers and clerks.  My main task is to assist our senior law clerk, Melissa Morrison on Ryan, Anna and Jason’s Family Law Files.   Meeting, interacting and helping our clients always feels rewarding.


Memorable Moment
