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.

I called for an initial consultation and spoke with Leann. She took a fair bit of time getting all of my information, as my case is complex. Mr Merdes followed up with an un-rushed consultation about my case. This was surprising, as he intended to refer me to another lawyer which specialized in this particular field. He spent a good deal of time on the phone with me explaining several important factors in my case. He then referred me to the specialty lawyer, and invited me to call back for another referral if necessary. He is a straight shooter. It is rare to find a Professional that will spend so much of their time helping someone find their way to a different Lawyer. Good people. Thank you again!

I had been in a car wreck that led to a neck fusion and shoulder surgery. The person that caused the wreck was uninsured, underage, and the vehicle not even his. I was pretty scared and couldn't get results by myself. Ward Merdes handled everything. He was kind and supportive throughout. Gave me good advice too. I followed it. I now have uninsured motorist coverage just in case. Regardless, thanks to Ward Merdes I was able to pay my hospital bills, and get a new vehicle to replace the wrecked one. I'm truly grateful to him for handling the insurance company, etc. He's amazing!

I really appreciated his man to man style. I did not feel like the system or my lawyer was playing me. He never used any catch phrases, or said "I'm sorry" when it is so much bull. I trusted him explicitedly after the first meeting.

Ward is a brilliant and trustworthy lawyer, and I recommend him to everyone in my town. He is easy to get ahold of, and returned my calls promptly. His advice and expertise were invaluable! His whole team made themselves available to me and made sure I understood everything that was going on. Don't try looking for a better lawyer and staff, this is it.
