I try to live by the motto "Whatever you are, be a good one." One of the best things about Ward and Smith is our team-oriented mentality. Our structure is focused on providing the absolute best service possible. I became a lawyer to impact people, and admire our clients' recognition that good professional advice can be priceless. One surprising thing people don't know about me is that I am working through an aversion to ketchup.
