Attorney Emil Ward is affable, a good listener and easy to talk to. He has always treated me in a collegial but highly professional manner.
Emil is easy to work with. He makes a point of asking me if he has answered all of my questions every time we speak. He also has made a point of offering me the option of doing some of the preliminary non-legal document preparation myself. This has reduced the number of hours he has worked on my behalf and has saved me money.
Emil has helped me on several occasions with landlord-tenant issues. On very short notice he has given me expert advice in situations with rapidly approaching deadlines. He has helped me craft landlord-tenant agreement documents that put me in a very strong legal position regarding rapid resolution of landlord-tenant conflicts. This will minimize my need for legal advice in the future.
In summary Emil has been very pleasant to work with, given me expert advice, worked on short notice, kept charges low and minimized my need for future legal services.
I highly recommend Attorney Emil Ward.

As landlords, my husband and I were involved in a very nasty court case with a tenant who alleged all sorts of claims against us, such as discrimination and lead paint violations. We had gone through several years of litigation, through several lawyers and spent tens of thousands of dollars on lawyers' fees but were at the point of paying $25,000 to settle the case. Although we had not done these things, we just wanted to get this disastrous situation out of our lives, so we seriously considered paying the money. However, we contacted Atty. G. Emil Ward in a desperate act to avoid a truly unjust result. When he came on board, he came up to speed quickly and efficiently. He corrected some procedural issues which had left us without certain crucial testimony of a witness three states away, which he miraculously obtained. He savagely attacked the other side again and again with great legal work. He simply would not quit before righting the wrongs done to my husband and me by the other side, which included the state of Massachusetts as one of the parties. The case finally ended with a nomimal cost to us. We were extremely pleased with the services of Ward & Associates and would highly recommend them to anyone, especially landlords in legal trouble. They simply will not quit as long as there is a good legal or ethical ground to stand on.
