Having experienced firsthand some of the dramas and extreme situations that she has to observe every day while defending the rights of the immigrant community in various cities in the United States, Jany Martinez Ward calls the attention of web portals within the legal field, as is the case of Super Lawyers.com.
Jany Martinez-Ward had a difficult beginning to her American dream. At a very young age, her family moved to Venezuela from Cuba. Her mother bravely left Venezuela when things there took a dangerous turn in search of a better future in the United States. Nevertheless, there were difficulties and separations along the way.
When her mother was arrested and taken away at the U.S. border in Matamoros-Brownsville, Jany, who was only 14 years old, was left as the eldest sibling with little English proficiency and a backpack of their meager possessions.
Without a doubt, life is no longer the same when you are forced to embark on a journey of no return. Leaving behind everything you know, leaving the calm provided by the roots and everyday life, and embarking on a stage without routine, with no fixed place to be, and with nothing to ensure the journey's success.
All these difficulties helped our senior attorney, Jany Martinez Ward, to develop a special sensitivity to the conflicts or needs of migrant communities in important states such as Florida or New York.
Despite the empty words of some professors who suggested that he should not enroll in law school because his fluency in the language was not sufficient, the facts finally proved that such auguries were not in good faith but rather that uncomfortable voice that always sabotages our minds the great purposes or goals we set for ourselves.
Jany Martinez proved to those bad faith predictions that she had come to this new country for great things and to positively impact hundreds of lives that would seek her help to solve life-and-death situations. The difficult experiences she had to go through helped her develop a greater awareness of the world around her, and she decided to become a successful lawyer serving her community.
After completing her J.D. at Nova Southeastern University's Shepard Broad College of Law in Davie and her double bachelor's degrees in psychology and Spanish literature from UF, Martinez-Ward made the decision to represent immigrants who require financial assistance following auto accidents.
After discovering its purpose, and always with God's help, she founded with her husband, Greg Ward, The Ward Law Group. A firm that has obtained 500 million dollars for its clients and that every day works to build a more just community for all in every place where they practice law.
"It is always an honor for us to share our story for portals like Superlawyers.com," - reaffirms our attorney with the smile that characterizes her. That’s the result of years of practicing the values that are the foundation of success for this company: service to our colleagues, clients, and community.
