staffWe all know the comforting feeling of visiting a doctor you trust when you’re sick or injured. It is a blessing to find someone who really listens and cares about you. At Florida Trial MD, our attentive, knowledgeable staff and lawyers believe that you should feel the same way when you contact our law office after you’ve been hurt in an accident. Of course, for over 25 years, we have had a great advantage over other Florida law firms. Our founder, Walter Ward, before becoming a lawyer, built a successful medical practice – caring for families throughout the Orlando community. He understands “great bedside manner” and along with his partner, Tony Caggiano, treats each client like family. We welcome telephone calls, emails and text messages whenever anyone has a question or a concern. A doctor, as well as a lawyer and a trial lawyer certified as an expert provides you with both a medical and legal advantage – that’s the balance of law and medicine at work for you.
