Best Lawyers® has named seven Ward and Smith attorneys as "Ones to Watch" in its 2022 edition of Best Lawyers in America®.

This honor recognizes some of the nation's most promising attorneys who have demonstrated professional excellence and have been in private practice for fewer than ten years. "Ones to Watch" is based entirely on peer review and employs the same methodology that has made Best Lawyers® the gold standard for legal rankings worldwide.

The publication ranked Ward and Smith attorneys across a range of practices and offices. The attorneys recognized are:

An awarded lawyer can be recognized for multiple years but cannot indefinitely remain recognized in "Ones to Watch." After a candidate has been in practice for more than 10 years, they are eligible to be nominated for the traditional Best Lawyers® awards.

Recently, Best Lawyers® recognized nearly half of the firm's attorneys in the 2022 edition of Best Lawyers in America®, and also named two Ward and Smith attorneys as "Lawyer of the Year."
