(5 STAR, A+++). Not only am I new to the area, with exception of some prior estate planning, I am new to ever having the need to call for legal consultation for an accident. Ward Merdes and his staff are without question 5 Star and A+++. His office staff was so pleasant to deal with. Mr Merdes called me promptly and did what he said he would do without delay. Would I recommend him and his staff? Absolutely and without hesitation. Will I use him in the future if the need arises? Absolutely and without hesitation.

I finally found a lawyer that really wanted to help me, and did. After I got into an accident, I asked a friend if he knew a good lawyer. He recommended Ward. Ward had helped his daughter and grandkids after they got into an accident. It sounded like he did well for them. I thought I would give him a try. I called Ward and told him about my accident and very shortly after that I was in his office telling my story. After hearing about my accident, Ward explained what he could do for me and wasn’t worried one bit about going against the insurance company to help me. I’m pretty ignorant about the legal system and sometimes Ward talked pretty fast but that’s because he knows what he’s talking about. I could stop him anytime and have him explain things if I needed him to. Ward also has a good staff that is always very helpful and very professional. Whenever I called or went to his office, I always got good, prompt help. Ward was always there for me. If he happened to be in court or unavailable when I called or stopped by, his wife or staff would usually answer my questions. If they couldn’t answer them, Ward would call me very soon after with the answers. Everyone in the office was there for me.
Ward went above and beyond any other lawyer I’ve had. He really went the extra mile to help me (the little guy) and it worked out very well. He provided copies of everything for my files. I would recommend Ward to help you. He genuinely cares. He’s not a blood thirsty, money grubbing lawyer. He’s one of the few good ones around. You’re the man, Ward.

After being in an auto accident, a friend recommended that I contact Ward Merdes. And I am not sorry that I did. We spent over an hour on the phone, going through everything that happened with him giving me complete and thorough advice throughout the conversation. He made sure I understood everything he told me. This man knows what he is talking about. He insisted that I contact his office if I had any additional questions or concerns. The kicker, is that he did this all free of charge. You won't get that with any other attorney. He is the best of the best and I'd recommend him in a heartbeat. You won't regret talking to him before taking on any insurance company.

Ward and his team went above and beyond to help my husband and I. We had never been in a accident let alone dealt with insurance Companies in this situation. Ward truly broke it down and helped us out even before we took each other on as client & attorney! It was truly nice having them represent us through such a difficult time, & having everything explained to us but by bit & step by step! I wouldn't recommend anyone else! It's nice to know that we have such phenomenal Help right here in Fairbanks!

After being injured in an auto accident, I contacted Ward, hoping to hire him. He gave me a lot of good direction, assignments to do on my own, and refused to bill me. With every phone conversation, he gave me good solid advice and instilled complete confidence in me. Whenever I called his office, I received a return phone call the same day. ALWAYS.
I sure hope I never need to contact Ward again, but I know he's there if I do.

Rather than wasting your time and money talking to another lawyer, go see Mr. Merdes and get your issue(s) resolved. I had a quick, but complex question. Mr. Merdes reduced my case to its bare essence and provided me excellent consultation. Make Mr. Merdes your First and Last call.

Mr. Ward Merdes has a very professional and commanding presence and is obviously respected and loved by all. He kept me informed as the months went by through email, mail and on the phone. He was always honest and straightforward and his staff updated me whenever there was new information to be given. In the end, he was able to get a good resolution to a long legal process. I am very grateful to Mr. Ward Merdes for everything he and his AMAZING staff did on my behalf. They made me feel like part of their family, welcoming me with care and kindness. Thank you Mr. Merdes!

Had a consultation regarding a car accident. His staff was exceptionally polite and helpful during the intake. When he called, he gave me some excellent advice to start with and it is very clear that he cares about people.
I would absolutely hire him in the future should the need arise.

Ward and his staff did an excellent job representing me and were very good at keeping me informed through the whole process. They were always very quick to respond to and inquiries and cut through the legal speak to explain everything in a way the average person could understand. They were also very good at treating us like friends instead of like a paycheck. He was ethical, honest and of all the firms we got a consult from he was the only one who actually asked me how I was doing and asked to see the injury.

I don't believe I've EVER dealt with such a knowledgeable, resourceful, kinder, and helpful attorney as Ward. He's the type of person who raises the bar (no pun intended) and is head and shoulders above others. While other attorneys would not even answer my emails, Ward gave me OUTSTANDING information and direction even though I did not retain him. In the event I ever again need an attorney, he will definitely be the one I contact. For those of you seeking an attorney and don't know where to look, definitely give him a call. THANKS WARD, you are truly a PROFESSIONAL.
