I have lived in a lodging house owned by a large non-profit corporation in Boston for the past eight years. I have had to endure bad conditions which included rodent infestation and unsanitary conditions. Finally I filed a complaint on my own in Boston Housing Court. After the second hearing, I knew I needed an attorney. I went to the Volunteer Lawyer's Project and asked for their help. Shortly after, Attorney Ward contacted me. She agreed to take the case. After twenty-two months in Housing Court, we finally had a two day, twelve person jury trial. After an hour and ten minutes the jury returned a verdict in my favor on all counts and awarded me money damages.
From the very beginning, I was impressed with Ms. Ward's commitment, knowledge and cheerful disposition in all matters of the case. Her work and the final disposition of the case exceeded my wildest dreams.
I am someone who does not have a lot of money. I live on SSDI benefits. Money never entered the picture. It was Ms. Ward's commitment to right a wrong and bring my landlord to justice.
She is an attorney who I would recommend to my friends without hesitation!!

I have known Attorney Ward for almost ten years and fully endorse her as an attorney. She is kind, caring, ethical, and fights hard for her clients. She has years of courtroom experience, but is never afraid to mediate if that is what is best for the client. She cares a great deal about her community and is involved in volunteer work and always looking to give back. She is a true star.

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.
