    Ward is the best trial lawyers I know. I had the privilege of trying a multi-million share holder derivative suit with Ward. He did a fantastic job.

    I have lived in Fairbanks 50+ years. The business I was in put me in contact with insurance agents and adjusters, lawyers and Judges statewide. When I had an accident I was very fortunate that Mr Merdes took my case. I have been very well taken care of. Ward, Laurie and his staff are a first class firm. Ward loves what he is doing. He is a brilliant litigator and he is on top of everything, all of the time. I cannot say enough about Ward Merdes and his firm. Ward's father would be proud! Read less

    I came to Ward after I was hit by a drunk driver. From the beginning Ward was so friendly and answered all my questions (I had a ton). He always had time for me even though I always called. I was probably really annoying because I was put on a lot of pain pills but he helped with everything. He even offered to let me stay in his guest bedroom if I had to fly back up to Alaska for a trial (I moved back to lower 48 after the Army) but the case never went to trial, he just sent me a check.
