Criminal Defense: White-Collar

The attorneys at Ward and Smith assisted us with a very challenging issue involving an employee and the former employee of an existing client. Ward and Smith’s expertise allowed us to understand the courses of action available to us and our employee, and successfully navigate a very delicate civil issue while treating our employee's best interest as paramount in every decision. Without their guidance, we could have easily done more harm than good in our efforts to do the right thing.
