Brendan Ward, the founder of Ward Estate & Family Law, began his career after receiving his Bachelor of Science from the University of New Hampshire searching for a job that would both fulfill him personally and support him financially – the two don’t always go hand-in-hand. Like all great journeys, there were many routes along the way.
Brendan’s first job out of college was a customer support specialist in the business to business department at a wireless communications company. It was here that Brendan was able to begin to learn the fundamentals of customer service developing a lifelong commitment to providing every customer with exceptional service. However, the life of a customer service specialist would not prove to be last stop of the journey.
Brendan soon found himself as an intern for a high tech public relations firm. Here Brendan was able to learn about digital media, marketing and once again excellent customer service. Every step of his journey has given Brendan the tools he needs to be a successful advocate and counselor for his clients. His work at the PR firm was a great learning experience but Brendan still longed for more: he wanted a career where he would help people in a more intimate and hands-on manner.
Brendan changed his path forever when he made the choice of volunteering on a political campaign. Brendan was hooked and quickly became a political junky and even a paid campaign staffer for several local and state-wide political campaigns. Through his paid and volunteer work on political campaigns Brendan began to see the benefits of a legal education. Brendan had found the opportunity to help make the world a better place and at the same time make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.
Brendan soon found himself working for a politician in her legal office. He got a job as a paralegal at a firm that focused on family law and estate administration. It was during this experience that Brendan knew he wanted to be a lawyer.
Brendan enrolled in the New England School of Law in downtown Boston, going to law school in the evenings and working full-time as a paralegal at an office focusing on family law and estate administration. As he continued working his way through law school he began to see that the way most attorneys practiced law and ran their businesses was not the way he wanted to live. Prior to graduating law school and passing the bar – Brendan decided that being an attorney and doing things the way the always been done wouldn’t work for him. Brendan decided to take his journey in a different direction.
Swearing off practicing law and instead focusing on providing service to others, Brendan began a career in Human Resources at a Boston area non-profit. Here he learned that customer service was the most important part of being an effective Human Resources Professional. At this point Brendan began to see a pattern – every job he had shared one major element. The element of making sure that the customer is satisfied and receiving excellent service. Brendan continued his career in Human Resources for five years at both the local non-profit and a large corporate real estate firm.
In January of 2011 Brendan joined a law firm and began practicing with the law firm of Mavros & Fitzgerald, where he focused on Family Law. At Mavros & Fitzgerald Brendan began to become a Personal Family Lawyer through the Family Wealth Planning Institute, a private organization focused on providing excellent estate planning services to clients. Brendan received extensive training and coaching in the process of receiving this designation.
In August of 2013 Brendan founded his own firm Ward Estate & Family Law where he could do things the way he wanted to be able to serve families with young children in a new and innovative way. Brendan’s practice gives families the guidance, warmth and knowledge they need to make informed estate planning decisions for their families. With Brendan’s guidance families can know that they have taken the appropriate steps to care for their loved ones if anything were to happen.
When not helping families with planning for the future Brendan and his Partner Andrew spend time renovating their 1930’s bungalow in Nahant, MA. Brendan and Andrew also are the proud parents of a mini-goldendoodle named Muriel. Brendan aside from his parental duties to Muriel spends a great deal of time volunteering in his local community. Brendan is the past president of the Copley Society of Art Circle, a member of the town of Nahant Advisory & Finance Committee and the Secretary of local non-profit 01908.

THE WYOMA LIONS CLUB 1954 TO 2014
The Wyoma Lions Club grew out of the idea of one man. In the fall of 1952 the late Atty. Charles Ingram met with John Quigley at the Flagg Restaurant, located in Olympia Square. He felt Lynn needed a second Lions Club. Charlie was an all-out advocate of Lionism. He believed that individuals who couldn’t attend the noon meetings of the Lynn Lions were denied the opportunity to serve their community as members of Lions Clubs International.
During the fall and winter they recruited and organized potential members. Meetings were held at the home of Boston Jeweler Frank Sampieri on Casco Road, Frank became the club’s first President.
The idea of a second club met resistance from some members of the Lynn Club. District and International officers helped secure a charter. This pained Charlie, since his late father, Atty. John Ingram, was one of the founders and a past President of the Lynn Club. But he forged ahead.
On Feb. 22, 1954 the charter night was held in Paul Revere Hall, then located in Glenmere Square. John Quigley was the charter night chairman and was the last living charter member. The late Mayor Frawley gave the main address.
As years passed the Wyoma Club met at several locations including Carl’s Duck Farm and the Valle’s Steak House in Saugus, the Hotel Edison. Anthony’s Hawthorne, the Lido Cafe, Nandee’s Manor, the Porthole Restaurant, Boston Street Café, Ballard Restaurant and a few other locations. Now the club meets at the Olde Tyme Italian Cuisine Restaurant on Boston Street. Dinner meetings are on the first Tuesday with an optional business or directors meeting on the third Tuesday of the month.
The club has long engaged itself in community service and has raised over $100,000 for eye research. On many occasions, it has assisted visually impaired and legally blind persons to secure needed equipment which will improve their quality of life. The club has assisted in placing a child in summer camp and has assisted many in the community who are less fortunate than others.
The club has had its ups and downs. At one point membership fell to such a low point, a vote to disband was taken and defeated. Then in the early 90’s a newer, younger and more energetic group joined the club. Its’ activities and its’ fiscal strength were renewed.
The club has sponsored other clubs including the East Lynn and the Nahant Lions and in June of 1992 the Wyoma Lioness Club, originally sponsored by the Wyoma Lions, was chartered as the Shoe City Lions Club. Today, the Wyoma Lions Club continues to offer community-minded individuals an opportunity to serve their neighbors through Lionism.
