N. Curtis Ward

NCW2

Curt Ward has been with the Firm since 1989 and is its managing partner.

Curt has successfully handled many personal injury cases. He has obtained significant awards and settlements for his clients in very complex personal injury matters. His practice includes cases involving motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, wrongful death, slip and fall and products liability. He has earned a well deserved reputation for tirelessly working for his clients who have been injured and always keeping his clients well informed. He is personally involved in each case to assure the most favorable results.

Curt also handles commercial and other civil litigation matters including shareholder and partner disputes; cases involving covenants not to compete, commercial disparagement, and misappropriation of trade secrets; real estate litigation including representing large commercial and residential landlords; breach of contract lawsuits; construction litigation, including performance disputes and mechanics’ liens; collection cases; employment litigation; representing bars and restaurants in litigation involving their operations and liquor licenses; and family law and divorces. With approximately 20 years of trial experience and a substantial business background, he is able to effectively handle even the most complex commercial lawsuit. Curt takes pride in making sure that even his most sophisticated business clients understand the nature of the lawsuit in which they are involved and how the law pertains to that case.
Curt has also successfully handled many cases in Orphans’ Court (Pennsylvania’s probate court) with regard to disputes involving administration of estates and beneficiaries of trusts and estates. These cases can be emotionally charged and often difficult but Curt’s steady and thoughtful approach allows his clients to understand the law and facts of the case and to ultimately make sound and well reasoned decisions.

Personal

Curt is married to Lisa Ward who is a physical therapist and they have three children, Will, Maddie and Colin. They live near Collegeville.  Curt’s courtroom intensity is matched only by his behavior on the basketball court, where despite age and injuries he still insists on full-court competition.  Surprising factoid: There was a point in Curt’s life when he chose between sitting for the bar exam and becoming a certified public accountant.
