About Ashley J. Ward, Lead Litigator

Family law is one of the most personal legal practices a lawyer can pursue, which is why Baltimore divorce attorney Ashley J. Ward chooses to practice it.

“The outcomes affect most, if not all facets of a person’s life,” Ms. Ward said.

Ms. Ward has dedicated her secondary and post-secondary education to mastering the art of family law advocacy and continues to grow her practice.

Ms. Ward has a passion for advocacy and the ability to direct her clients to the ultimate goal while staying focused and organized throughout the process.

“Family law is difficult because you are dealing with good people at their lowest,” she said. “You need an attorney who is understanding, provides transparency and is a strong advocate; an attorney that will keep you focused and navigate you through the murky waters of the divorce and custody process.

“I take pride in providing that type of excellent service to my clients.”

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
  • “It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
    – Mason B.
  • “Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
    – Mark L.
