Ward and Smith, P.A. congratulates Laura C. Snyder for her recognition by the International Legal Technology Association ("ILTA"). Laura, the Firm's Applications Development Supervisor, is a finalist for the ILTA 2014 Young Professional Award. We anxiously await the outcome of the awards ceremony during the August ILTA conference in Nashville, Tennessee. The Firm's Chief Information Officer, Chris S. Romano, will be serving on two panels during this year's conference, including, "The Electronic Record: From Wishful Thinking to Reality," and "Up-and-Coming CIOs: How to Get There and Be Great." This is the fourth time Ward and Smith has had an award finalist since 2010.
