On June 24-25th 2021, Crisp will host the largest and most spectacular legal event of its kind. Don’t miss out on the EVOLVE Summit: The Ultimate Virtual Experience for Entrepreneurial Law Firms.
This worldwide virtual experience will bring together over 5,000 ambitious law firm owners, industry experts, market leaders, and their teams.
The star-studded lineup for the EVOLVE Summit continues to grow, adding truly revolutionary new speakers leading up to the event. Each speaker has been hand-picked to inspire entrepreneurial law firm owners like yourself to reach new heights, push past your limits, and achieve the unthinkable.
Now introducing to the virtual stage, a testament to the notion that greatness often comes in pairs: Greg Ward and Jany Martinez-Ward!
This husband and wife team are the co-founders of Ward Law Group, and their explosive growth in the South Florida market has been nothing short of remarkable.
Who are Jany and Greg Ward?
One of the biggest names in Florida’s personal injury law practice is The Ward Law Group. This is especially true for members of dense Spanish-speaking communities throughout South Florida.
Partners (and spouses) Greg and Jany founded their firm specifically with a goal to contribute to the Hispanic community’s legal needs after individuals suffer car accidents. They noticed early on that even in a community like Miami, where a large portion of the population speaks Spanish, there weren’t many lawyers dedicated only to Spanish-speaking clients.
When they saw the gap in care, they took the opportunity to seize their niche — and it’s paid off big time in the long run.
Greg and Jany niched down to build up, and now they’re one of the fastest-growing firms in the state. As they grow, their focus remains on creating the law firm of the future, weaving incredible culture into their team all the while.
Born in Cuba, Jany immigrated to the United States about 20 years ago. She has experienced firsthand the challenges that immigrants face in the complex and intimidating US legal system. Because of her early experiences, Jany chose to dedicate her life to helping her community’s legal needs. She has been recognized as a Top attorney in Florida and earned a “Top 40 Under 40” status from the National Trial Lawyers Association in 2018.
In her day-to-day work, Jany leads the firm’s Pre-Litigation Department assisting clients with everything from paperwork to counseling. Her expertise lies in quality client service — she is largely responsible for increasing the Ward Law Group client base from just a few personal injury clients in 2013 to over eight hundred active files today.
As an experienced attorney who once represented insurance companies, Greg has a deep understanding of how they operate and what aspects can create or diminish the value of the cases he represents. This knowledge has led him to become a gifted negotiator and litigator on behalf of his clients.
Teaming up with his wife has empowered them to grow their firm exponentially. Greg says that people often ask how he can work so closely with his wife, but his response is always, “How could I not?”
What Jany and Greg Will Bring to the EVOLVE Summit
Despite their forward-facing perspective, Jany and Greg are constantly striving to remain true to their roots and their overall vision. When they take the stage at the EVOLVE Summit, you can expect them to share how you must never compromise your values in the name of growth.
This dynamic pair has grown their practice into a South Florida powerhouse, and they’re not stopping any time soon. You won’t want to miss their time on stage to learn exactly what key strategies got them to where they are now — because it hasn’t been an easy road to success.
After experiencing a devastating blow that almost closed their business early on, they chose action over fear and decided to do whatever it took to grow their firm to new heights.
“The first big challenge we overcame was the catalyst to our growth. I lost our biggest client because I had been undercut in the fees by a friend of mine. It looked dire for us. We thought we were going to go out of business,” Greg explained in an interview with Crisp Founder & CEO Michael Mogill.
Greg continues: “Really living our values, I feel, was the turning point because that was the biggest fear factor at the very beginning. Going forward powerfully was a huge step and a big breakthrough for us. We’re big drivers and we want to grow, but you can never forget where you came from.”
One of the best ways to solve the problems you face now is to learn from people who have already been there and already done it successfully. Greg and Jany are those people, so take this opportunity to learn from their experience.
At the EVOLVE Summit, the Wards will be part of an impactful lineup of expert keynote speakers sharing innovative ideas and best practices to growing your firm beyond your wildest dreams — and creating a team that helps you get there.
