Dan and his firm were introduced to me through another local business owner and that was important to me. Dan is an approachable attorney who made himself available when I needed him. He and his staff turned around a contract issue I had with my business quickly and I felt like they took the time to explain things to me in a way that helped me to decide how to structure my contract from a solid legal perspective.

Dan was referred to us, and once we got him involved in our case, we knew he was the piece we needed. He was tenacious, responsive and he managed our expectations perfectly. If he thought something was a bad idea, he'd say so...and vice versa. He didn't just do what was good for Dan, he followed a path that was good for us, his client. Can't ask for more in a lawyer!

I've been working with Ward and Ward for the last 15 years and find both Tom and Dan good lawyers to work with. They bring a realistic business-centric attitude to the case, present the options, the costs and the odds of success for various strategies. I always have felt they had my best interests at heart and are not afraid of tough litigation if that's what's needed.

Dan is a top shelf litigator and trial lawyer. He provides the sort of expertise you get from big firm lawyers, but the attention you can only get from a small shop. No matter how sophisticated or complex the matter, Dan and his team should be on the list of folks to call.
Kevin Mottley, Litigation Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I give Dan Ward my highest endorsement. We worked as opposing counsel with each other on a difficult business dispute case a couple of years ago. I found him to be a dedicated advocate for his client's positions while, at the same time, a true professional who was easy to work with toward a solution.
