Ward and Smith, P.A. is pleased to announce the inclusion of 12 of our attorneys in Business North Carolina's "Legal Elite."  The publishers distributed more than 20,000 ballots to Tar Heel attorneys.  The ballots asked only one question:  "Of the North Carolina lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best?"  Less than 3 percent of the state's attorneys made the list.
