From Our Clients

The team at Ward and Smith in Wilmington were great! They were caring, responsive, competent, thorough and effective. I can’t ask for anything more.
Chris Barclay
Jeremy Wilson and his team do a fantastic job on personal injury cases. In addition to being an effective litigator, he is a true gentleman and a pleasure to work with on matters. I highly recommend Jeremy and Ward & Smith for personal injury plaintiff's cases.
Jeremy Wilson and team did an outstanding job with my case. It was handled flawlessly from start to finish. From the beginning, Jeremy set the proper expectations of what to expect and followed through at every step. They were very responsive and knowledgeable and went above and beyond to help me in my case. Would highly recommend.
The team at Ward and Smith was more than we could’ve ever expected! From our initial meeting with Jeremy Wilson and his many colleagues, we knew they were the perfect fit for us as our representatives. The professionalism, personal care, and interest that was shown toward our family members went well beyond the call of duty.
Frederick K.
I have found the lawyers and staff of all offices of Ward and Smith as competent, caring and gifted as any group of lawyers and legal professionals could possibly be. While there is obviously a very well organized management structure at Ward and Smith insuring the highest levels of service to their clients and the community, I have found all of their lawyers to be individually dedicated to serve their clients at the highest levels of professional competence — and they actually do it. I know of no law firm that can equal Ward and Smith and I am most pleased to have the opportunity to share this information.
