  • Paul Moraski

    Attorney Ward is an extremely hard working attorney who fights really hard for her clients. I recently witnessed her in a Jury Trial that involved a housing case where she got a Jury Award of over $25,000, which is not including the pending 93A action which could triple the Jury Award. I endorse this lawyer.

  • Joshua H. Krefetz

    Heather Ward is a formidable, hard-working attorney and a friendly and positive colleague. I have witnessed firsthand the determination and persistence she brings to bear on behalf of her clients. She represented a tenant in our mutual case, but I would certainly refer family law matters to her without hesitation.
