In a recent interview with student reporters from the University of Colorado Boulder School of Law, MSWDenver Partner Tom Ward shares his passion for advocacy in working with underserved populations in Colorado.
Tom explains how he made the switch from finance to law as a young Colorado transplant from Chicago, and how working in criminal defense has impacted his life as well as those he is serving. Following up on the information in the article, Tom commented on his criminal defense practice:
Whether it is a very serious felony or a seemingly minor charge, our clients always have a lot at stake. Sometimes the potential collateral consequences like losing one’s livelihood can be more severe than what happens in the courtroom. Helping someone through a very difficult situation with a positive result is incredibly rewarding.
