  • Daniel Sage Ward

    Sean is my "go to" guy on all matters food and beverage law. An excellent lawyer, wonderful guy, and fantastic at navigating the rather byzantine paths for liquor licenses, etc. in DC and Maryland. If you are a restauranteur, or have a client who is a restauranteur, keep Sean's number handy!
