“I relied on Jason and Calvin’s knowledge and expertise throughout a difficult situation with my former employer. They and their support staff made me feel like their #1 priority throughout the process, informing me immediately of any developments, and preparing me for what to expect as things proceeded. In addition to providing expert legal services, they showed genuine care and concern for my well-being during period of drastic change in my life.”

WHY I WORK
AT WARDS LAWYERS

When I received the opportunity to join the team at WARDS LAWYERSPC it was a no-brainer. One of the things in my life that has always gripped me has been an adventure and with that in mind, I decided to leave the big city and practice in a community where I knew I could make a meaningful impact. The emphasis that WARDS LAWYERSPC places on quality service and giving back to the community makes this Firm such a rewarding place to work. When I joined WARDS LAWYERSPC, I knew that I would have a fantastic opportunity to serve a great local community.

More about Calvin

Memorable Moment

What struck me about working at WARDS LAWYERSPC was the attention to detail and emphasis on providing quality service for each individual client. As a litigation lawyer I’d heard every joke in the book about lawyers who reap the misfortunes of their clients. Working at WARDS LAWYERSPC is different. I remember sitting in a client meeting with Jason working through a complex problem where he made sure the client understood every piece of pertinent information while presenting practical solutions to fit the client’s needs. When I saw the positive approach to ensuring that our client’s needs and concerns were taken care of, I knew I was in the right place.

A Message From Calvin

The Lord is my shepherd! My faith informs every aspect of my life, including my legal practice. I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work at WARDS LAWYERSPC where I am engaged in a professional, conscientious and thoughtful approach to the practice of law. There is no greater joy in my work than to provide service to our clients which result in fair and just outcomes. I hope that by my work I am able to serve humbly by Christ’s name – Micah 6:8.
