Navan Ward joins the pod to discuss his upcoming term as incoming AAJ President, his goals for the next year, and how AAJ plans to move forward in this post-pandemic world.

Navan has spent the last 20 years working with Beasley Allen Law Firm, representing plaintiffs in a variety of cases, including toxic tort, environmental law, product liability, single-event injuries, nursing home neglect, and more.

      • If selected, your interview will get published on a specific day and featured on our site and social media.
    • We’re also launching a series of podcasts and articles from a variety of contributors but are encouraging others to apply.
