Ward and his staff did an excellent job representing me and were very good at keeping me informed through the whole process. They were always very quick to respond to and inquiries and cut through the legal speak to explain everything in a way the average person could understand. They were also very good at treating us like friends instead of like a paycheck. He was ethical, honest and of all the firms we got a consult from he was the only one who actually asked me how I was doing and asked to see the injury.

I don't believe I've EVER dealt with such a knowledgeable, resourceful, kinder, and helpful attorney as Ward. He's the type of person who raises the bar (no pun intended) and is head and shoulders above others. While other attorneys would not even answer my emails, Ward gave me OUTSTANDING information and direction even though I did not retain him. In the event I ever again need an attorney, he will definitely be the one I contact. For those of you seeking an attorney and don't know where to look, definitely give him a call. THANKS WARD, you are truly a PROFESSIONAL.

I called for an initial consultation and spoke with Leann. She took a fair bit of time getting all of my information, as my case is complex. Mr Merdes followed up with an un-rushed consultation about my case. This was surprising, as he intended to refer me to another lawyer which specialized in this particular field. He spent a good deal of time on the phone with me explaining several important factors in my case. He then referred me to the specialty lawyer, and invited me to call back for another referral if necessary. He is a straight shooter. It is rare to find a Professional that will spend so much of their time helping someone find their way to a different Lawyer. Good people. Thank you again!

I had been in a car wreck that led to a neck fusion and shoulder surgery. The person that caused the wreck was uninsured, underage, and the vehicle not even his. I was pretty scared and couldn't get results by myself. Ward Merdes handled everything. He was kind and supportive throughout. Gave me good advice too. I followed it. I now have uninsured motorist coverage just in case. Regardless, thanks to Ward Merdes I was able to pay my hospital bills, and get a new vehicle to replace the wrecked one. I'm truly grateful to him for handling the insurance company, etc. He's amazing!

I really appreciated his man to man style. I did not feel like the system or my lawyer was playing me. He never used any catch phrases, or said "I'm sorry" when it is so much bull. I trusted him explicitedly after the first meeting.

Ward is a brilliant and trustworthy lawyer, and I recommend him to everyone in my town. He is easy to get ahold of, and returned my calls promptly. His advice and expertise were invaluable! His whole team made themselves available to me and made sure I understood everything that was going on. Don't try looking for a better lawyer and staff, this is it.

Been in business over thirty years. Have had my fair share of legal issues. I am a business owner/ Mechanical Contractor. I am extremely happy with Ward Merdes consistent record of doing the right thing, the first time and the final outcome. Through life on very rare occasions you meet someone of particularly high quality about themselves and especially in the career they practice. So few are these people that in a life time you can count them on your fingers. Ward has one of my finger reserved. Ward is honest. His advice is always spot on and if he cannot help you he will use his time and resource trying to get you in touch with someone who may.

Ward, his wife Lori and their staff are awesome. The professionalism I experienced with their office was second to none. I was always greeted at the door as a welcomed guest even if my visit to the office was unannounced. My emails and phone calls were always returned very quickly without exception. Ward always kept me informed on the progress and status of my case, very patiently explain things to me in ways I could understand. He is a very honest and compassionate person who's experience is obvious from the minute you meet him. He fought for me tenaciously with a confidence that sometime left me in awe. Ward, Lori and their wonderful staff made a very difficult chapter in my life much easier to get through. If I ever need legal services in the future Ward is my choice. Ward knows what he is doing and I could never thank him enough.
