Meet Jany Martinez-Ward
Jany Martinez-Ward is a partner at The Ward Law Group, PL, a Florida personal injury law firm. She focuses her practice on providing legal representation to Spanish-speaking clients that have become injured in an accident as a result of the negligence of others.
Jany immigrated to the United States from her birthplace of Havana, Cuba approximately twenty years ago. As a non-native English speaker, she experienced the common challenges that immigrants face in this complex, and sometimes intimidating, legal system. As a consequence of her early experiences, Jany chose to dedicate her life to help her community’s legal needs. She has done this by first learning the English language. She earned a scholarship to attend the highly reputable University of Florida, and later transferred to Nova Southeastern University’s school of law, which provided her with the education and knowledge to pass the Florida Bar state exam.
