Ward and Smith is not a volume-based law firm.

We only take on cases we are passionate about and devote more time, attention, and resources to getting the best results for our clients. That means we are selective about the cases we accept, but that also means you are getting an experienced team of attorneys ready to fight for the compensation you deserve.

Our commitment to our clients goes above and beyond simply taking their cases; we always strive to build trust and maintain communication every step of the way. We’re committed to achieving the best possible outcome for our clients–even when it necessitates taking a case all the way through trial. We will not settle until you have been fully and fairly compensated for your injury. And, we’ve pursued that belief all the way to jury trials more than 150 times. We have a long history of success, with millions of dollars recovered for our clients in settlements and jury verdicts. 

We invite you to explore our Results & Testimonials page to learn more about the success stories we have been able to create for our clients. We are proud of the work we have done for past clients over our decades of experience and trust that it will give you the confidence to turn to us with your personal injury case.

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.
