Biography

Attorney Ward is the founder and managing partner of Ward Law Group, PLLC and his areas of concentration are Personal Injury, Workers’ Compensation, and Social Security Disability claims. Prior to founding Ward Law Group, PLLC, he was the managing partner of a Personal Injury and insurance defense firm. Seeking to limit his practice to represent only injury victims, Ward Law Group, PLLC was formed to concentrate exclusively on helping injured parties receive the compensation they deserve.

Attorney Ward is currently a member of the New Hampshire Bar Association, the New Hampshire Bar Association’s Legal Committee, New Hampshire Association for Justice, the National Organization of Social Security Claimant’s Representatives, and the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. He also serves on the board of directors for the William B. Cashin Senior Activity Center, North Manchester Hooksett Little League, and the Manchester City Library Foundation and is a Trustee for the Polaris Charter School. He is the former Chair of the NHBA’s Workers’ Compensation Section, former President of the NHBA’s Workers’ Compensation Section, former Vice President of the NHBA’s Workers’ Compensation Section, and former member of the NHBA’s New Lawyers Committee. Attorney Ward regularly appears in courts throughout New Hampshire and before the NH Department of Labor and the Social Security Administration.

He was selected by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys as one of the top ten Personal Injury attorneys under 40 in New Hampshire. From 2014-2021, Attorney Ward was continuously named by the National Trial Lawyers Association as a Top 40 Under 40 civil plaintiff attorney. In 2019, 2020, and 2021, he was awarded the Client’s Choice Award by AVVO.
