Story

I love helping my clients meet their goals.
Introduction
I am a business and regulatory lawyer. My practice involves a variety of transactions 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 more than 90 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.
