We’re here for you during COVID-19

To Our Valued Clients and Friends:

We at The Law Office of Carl M. Ward remain available to serve you in light of the National, State, and County Declarations of Emergency regarding COVID-19. However, in the interests of the safety for our staff, our clients, and our community, we made the important decision to close our physical office effective immediately.

Despite our absence from our physical office, we remain available, ready and able to help you with your legal needs during this time. Documents may be mailed to our office or placed in the mail slot accessible from the sidewalk out front. Our main office phone line will be answered, and calls and messages will be directed to Mr. Ward and his staff working from their homes. Mr. Ward will make appropriate arrangements to confer with clients remotely via telephone, or make other arrangements when necessary. Payments may be made safely and securely through our secure payment portal: http://bit.ly/carlward

While our absence from the office may result in small delays in response time, we are committed to minimizing these as much as practical. For those seeking legal services, our staff will continue to respond to your calls and will direct your matters and questions to Mr. Ward for review and consideration. We will continue the high quality of work product our clients have experienced over more than 30 years of practice, but we ask that you bear with us in these uncharted times.

We do not know how long this crisis will last, and cannot predict when our physical office will reopen. The Missouri Supreme Court has essentially ordered all courts to reschedule the vast majority of cases through April 17th, 2020, but we anticipate that this date will be extended.

We wish each of you and your families health and safety in the days and weeks to come.


Carl M. Ward
