I love helping my clients meet their goals.
Introduction
I am a business and regulatory lawyer. My practice involves a variety of transactional and compliance matters, with an emphasis on the banking and financial sectors, though I handle a wide range of matters for businesses of various sizes and in various industries, as well as some governmental entities.

My firm, Ward and Smith, P.A., is a full-service law firm providing excellent, client-focused service in nearly every area of civil law.  With almost 100 attorneys in five cities across North Carolina, we meet clients' needs effectively and efficiently through a teamwork-oriented approach.

I enjoy blogging about business law, banking law, and privacy law, and serving my communities.

Networking
I've found my new optometrist. Scheduling was easy, and the wait time was reasonable. The location is convenient. The front office staff is very service-oriented, and the professionals were very pleasant and did a great job of explaining in layman's terms. Dr. Said strikes a good balance of professionalism and personal touch, and Rae (the manager) is efficient and insightful. (Caroline, the optometry school intern, was excellent as well.)
