I was referred to attorney Ward by the lawyer referral service in Concord, NH. As my case pertained to a specific type of workplace issue, it could not be handled by just any attorney. I chose him due to his proximity to my home, and in retrospect would have gladly driven further. From our first phone call, I liked his demeanor. I found him to be the perfect combination of professional and personable. My case was won and I was so grateful to have him there in court to represent me. I would retain him in any future matters. — L.S.
