I have known Cheryl for a long time so when I needed help with a legal matter, I knew I would go to her. She helped me and my situation and I would recommend her to anyone that needs legal representation.

The Best
We were looking for an attorney to intervene with my father who was acting erratically and not able to pay his bills. We suspected his medications were off and he needed help. He was fighting with people and resisting help. Hence needing a guardianship. This case was wild and not easy. Cheryl was fantastic, she worked quickly, was very upfront about everything and do to her diligence we won the case! Honestly I am still a lil speechless. We jumped hurdle after hurdle and there were times we thought about giving up. Cheryl kept us going and knew we would succeed. I actually believe it was her care and concern that won the case for us.

She is a bulldog like no other
I hired attorney Ward to a litigious matter. She was a total bulldog, bit her teeth in and wouldn't let go. I really like her personality. While I call her a bulldog, she was so sweet and kind to me. I give her 5 stars. This was my first positive experience with an attorney.

Why settle for any less
She was my attorney for a legal matter. She always was available when I needed to talk with her. Her paralegal was equally available and super knowledgeable. They are super stars as far as I am concerned.

Like a best friend
Cheryl actually handled two of my Casey and she was like having a best friend as a attorney. Always called back promptly and very professional but fun at the same time. I really enjoyed her as my legal advisor and would definitely recommend her to anyone. She’s all about you and trying to get you the best possible outcome. I’m honored to have met her and to call her a friend.

Simply yhe best!
Cheryl is a knowledgeable, reliable diligent and most importantly approachable attorney. Her estate planning is outstanding. She listened, made sure she not only understood what the client said, but what he meant and then agreed to her interpretation. The result was a complete set of documents that were well accepted. Additionally, I have referred her to others and she has proven her worth on different occasions for various reasons supporting those in need. I highly recommend her!

Skilled legal strategist
I was so tired of terrible lawyers, tired of paying endless retainers… Feeling like I was getting nothing but voicemail. I was referred to Ms. Ward through a colleague. I will be forever grateful for the thought, strategy, and attention to detail given my Ms. Ward. If you want to win, pick a winner.
