The symbol of travel has always accompanied human beings throughout history. Some journeys were to flee from wars, sadness, oppression, or natural disasters. Many did not achieve their dream of finding freedom in the promised land. In a place where justice is equal for all, there is no longer the need to travel miles away from home to find the calm you long for in your soul.
Ms. Martinez Ward's dream with her family began at an early age, at 14 years old, when she found her destiny to move from her native Cuba in search of a place to settle down. But it would not be an orderly displacement or with things more than clear. Still, the almost forced drama experienced by hundreds of immigrants in Latin America who do not stop dreaming of a better future and present.
Escaping from the meaninglessness of people subjected to the tyranny of a government, from the insecurity in the streets, or from feeling that your life is in danger. These are some of the reasons that immigrants carry with them when making a decision as difficult as crossing a border in search of humanitarian aid.
These experiences once accompanied our attorney, Ms. Martinez Ward, and today, her story of overcoming and resilience is a point of reflection and admiration in the communities of Florida and New York, where hundreds of immigrants need references to help them confirm that it is worth fighting for your dreams. And that it is possible to access your rights, even in a country where the laws are not written in your language.
And just as symbols are part of human life, mythology has already warned us before of the processes of learning through difficult scenarios, which then serve to become guides for other people going through the same experiences.
The legend of Chiron, the wounded healer, is an ancient Greek myth that symbolizes the concept of transformation through suffering. Chiron, a centaur known for his wisdom and healing abilities, was accidentally wounded by a poisoned arrow. Despite his own unhealable wound, he continued to help and teach others, channeling his pain into healing expertise.
This myth conveys the idea that individuals who have experienced their own wounds or suffering can develop deep empathy and healing capabilities, ultimately using their pain as a source of strength to help and inspire others. It is often applied metaphorically to highlight the healing potential in those who have overcome personal struggles and now support and heal others through their experiences.
Since our attorney, Jany Martinez, found her vocation, the paths aligned so that she and her husband, Mr. Greg Ward, could found the firm, and today, they are reaping together ten years of success.
It is undoubtedly pleasing for the company to know that various media outlets, in addition to web portals with large numbers of readers, are inspired by the story of the founders of The Ward Law to highlight positive values that motivate people not to let themselves be clouded by the negative circumstances and being able to see the opportunities beyond the storm.
Difficult experiences have served as intensive classes for life itself. Today, these teachings are found in all the operations and activities carried out by the firm. In every second faced with a victim of an accident or an immigrant in a vulnerable situation, the firm's professional services will find a way for that person to face the situation they are going through in a more leisurely and less traumatic way.
Being at the service of our community is part of what motivates us to continue every day.
