Ward and Smith, P.A. is the successor to a practice founded in 1895. Our core values of client satisfaction, reliability, responsiveness, and teamwork are the standards that define who we are as a law firm. Ward and Smith ensures that your legal matters are handled with attentive intelligence by attorneys and staff who work together to build meaningful relationships with our clients. We do this by being knowledgeable in more than 30 practice areas, providing efficient results, and effectively using technology. We are your established legal network with offices located in Asheville, Greenville, New Bern, Raleigh, and Wilmington.

Ward and Smith is committed to building and maintaining relationships with every client because we understand that every client has unique needs. We work to become fully acquainted with the management style and operations of our clients. This enables us to provide timely and effective legal services. Our attorneys and professionals are dedicated to providing frequent and full communication to our clients with respect to pending and anticipated legal issues that may affect them. We advocate a proactive and preventive approach to our clients’ legal issues so that through proper planning and maintenance our clients can avoid legal difficulties and costs. We believe that this approach provides our clients with responsive, high-quality, and cost-effective legal services.

In order to focus on and respond to specific client needs, we have developed specialized practice groups. Attorneys and professionals in each group, in addition to their general training, focus their individual practices in one or more specific fields. Areas of legal representation requested most frequently by our clients include the following:

• Agribusiness
• Alcoholic Beverage Law
• Business
• Community Associations
• Construction
• Creditors' Rights
• Economic Development
• Education and Non-Profits
• Family Law
• Financial Institutions
• Government Relations
• Health Care
• Intellectual Property
• Labor and Employment
• Litigation
• Personal Injury and Wrongful Death
• Privacy and Information Security Law
• Real Estate
• Tax
• Trusts and Estates
• White Collar Defense

At Ward and Smith, we work seamlessly as a single team by drawing on attorneys and professionals from different practice groups who are best qualified to address clients’ problems.  The Firm has a strategic objective that at least two attorneys will have extensive, in-depth experience in each area of the law. This assures our clients that their distinct needs always are handled by someone with experience in their matters.
