Austin G. Ward is a Senior Trial Attorney representing plaintiffs in a variety of complex civil cases involving claims of personal injury, wrongful death, product liability, and pharmaceutical-related injuries. Prior to joining Adamson Ahdoot LLP, Mr. Ward honed his trial skills with the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office as a prosecutor, where he secured hundreds of convictions and restitution for victims while handling a fraud special assignment.

Mr. Ward prides himself in helping victims pursue their legal rights and obtain full and complete compensation from insurance carriers, corporate entities, and government agencies that engage in malicious and neglectful conduct. Over his career, Mr. Ward has successfully recovered over 100 million dollars in jury awards and settlements for his clients throughout Southern California, after receiving denials of responsibility in every case.

These cases have included truck and automobile collisions, construction site injuries, defective products, and dangerous conditions of property. Mr. Ward has helped those grieving the loss of a loved one, those suffering amputation of limbs, those enduring the confusion and distress of a brain injury, and those crippled from nerve impingement and chronic pain to recapture compensation for their loss and to help optimize their potential for recovery.

Mr. Ward has been recognized by legal publications and organizations for his dedication to the law and his clients. Mr. Ward has repeatedly been recognized as a Super Lawyer Rising Star, which recognizes no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in California. In 2017, he was a finalist for the coveted Consumer Attorney of California (CAOC) Streetfighter of the Year Award for helping a woman who had fled violence in Guatemala to stay in the United States.

In 2013, Mr. Ward completed an internship with the Honorable Robert L. Wilkins in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. Mr. Ward received his law degree from Pepperdine University School of Law with honors as Dean’s Merit Scholar and recipient of the Terry M. Giles Award. Mr. Ward is also a member of the Order of the Barristers. In law school, Mr. Ward was Lead Articles Editor for the Journal of the National Association of Administrative Law Judiciary. While participating in interschool moot court and mock trial teams, Mr. Ward won multiple national and international competitions, receiving the highest honors and multiple individual awards for his oral and written advocacy. During his final year of law school, Mr. Ward was honored with the 2013 “Top Gun” award, given to the top 16 student trial advocates in the nation.

He is a member of the State Bar of California and is licensed to practice law throughout California and is a member of several consumer advocacy organizations and bar associations in California.

Mr. Ward is a proud father and husband. He volunteers as the head coach for a high school mock trial team in Ventura County and enjoys trail running in the Santa Monica Mountains on weekends.

Mina and the team!
A drunk driver crashed into me and my fiancé last year. The day after we contacted the firm, our case was taken. Everything was dealt with quickly. We received regular updates along the road and the maximum settlement that the other drivers insurance would have paid. Many thanks to Francie, Mina and the team!

Thank you So much
Austin Ward and I had a wonderful exchange. The only legal firm that considered taking on my son's personal injury case before opting not to. They successfully fought for him at every turn and obtained a settlement that was much above just..

Brilliant, caring and trustworthy
I met Austin at Panish Shea&Boyle when my case got subbed over to them from Avrek. I went through a MVA, which ultimately led to undergo a bi-level cervical fusion surgery along with suffering from MTBI and PTSD. Life was not at its finest and I was going through some rough times. Austin really cared for my well being and as well as my best interest. He was there for me at all times, thoroughly answering any questions I had and keeping me updated of current status quo. I could not have asked for a better attorney. Thank you Austin.
