Jamie works regularly with individuals, corporations, and governmental entities on a variety of complex legal matters. His experience in substantive areas of the law includes government contracts (with an emphasis on local, state, and federal construction contracts and the procurement of goods and services), government relations and lobbying (including campaign finance and ethics issues), and economic development law (especially public-private partnerships and incentives). Jamie has extensive experience with board governance issues, open meeting and public records laws, and military economic development initiatives. He provides legal services to corporations, individuals, cities, counties, public housing authorities, community colleges, and other independent subdivisions of the State.
Prior to joining Ward and Smith, he was a legislative assistant in Washington, D.C. where he handled a variety of issues, including military construction and public works appropriations, for a member of congress who served on the House Armed Services and Agriculture Committees. Jamie was previously a research fellow in public education at a public policy foundation.
The North Carolina motto is mine as well: Esse Quam Videri. To be, rather than to seem. This motto informs my civic and professional commitments. My civic involvement includes many rewarding experiences. I am honored to volunteer regularly with Marine Corps moral improvement efforts through the local Military Alliances, and my service on the Tryon Palace Foundation Board of Directors brings a sense of history and legacy to my efforts by helping a 250 year-old institution thrive in the 21st century.
Professionally, I work with clients to solve problems and maximize outside-the-box solutions through the legislative and policy-making systems at the local, state, and federal levels. Being a part of the Ward and Smith team is supremely rewarding and allows me to leverage my government relations and public entity law experience to help clients who face unusual problems or opportunities.
