John Anthony Ward, LLC

Experienced Kenosha Trial Attorney

While there are always risks involved with taking a case to the courtroom, you are best served by a lawyer who has extensive litigation experience. John Anthony Ward is not afraid of a challenge and has been successful on behalf of clients with his proactive approach and creative legal strategies.

The Law Office of John Anthony Ward provides zealous representation to find the most cost-effective solution to all of our clients' legal concerns. Where some attorneys are focused only on the immediate issue, we try to anticipate the impact on other facets of life. This comprehensive view ensures that you are not just trading one problem for another. Where some attorneys look for a plea bargain or a settlement, we start with the presumption of a trial. On the other hand, we are not attack dogs who blindly litigate when there is a win-win negotiation available. Our approach is always based on sound judgment and the best interests of our client.

Based in Kenosha, we assist clients throughout southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Mr. Ward is also licensed in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court. His law practice covers diverse but often overlapping legal matters, including criminal charges, divorce, bankruptcy, estate planning and probate disputes, as well as personal injury claims and business litigation.

"As an ex-Marine and a trial attorney with 31 years of experience, it is my belief that the most important word in the client-attorney relationship is trust."

A Comprehensive Approach To Legal Issues

We take a holistic view of your situation that goes beyond the immediate legal problem to address all related issues. For example, we evaluate whether your divorce is likely to lead to bankruptcy or how criminal charges might affect your custody rights. We also advise on changes to your estate planning documents so an ex-spouse would not be left in control of your business affairs or medical decisions. We will not just give you a partial solution and leave you to figure the rest out on your own.

This gives us a stronger position in negotiations and puts us in place to protect you in court if litigation is necessary. We use good judgment in advising our clients, and we help them make informed decisions regarding their case.
