(August 6, 2014) – Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C. shareholder, Navan Ward, Jr., was selected as a 2014 recipient of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) Wiedemann & Wysocki Award. The award is presented annually to lawyers who demonstrate a deep commitment to the highest standards and who are passionately committed to the principles of the civil justice system and the mission of AAJ – “to promote a fair and effective justice system and to support the work of attorneys in their efforts to ensure that any person who is injured by the misconduct or negligence of others can obtain justice in America’s courtrooms, even when taking on the most powerful interests.”

The Wiedemann Wysocki Award is named in honor of Fritz Wiedemann and James Anthony Wysocki, two New Orleans-based attorneys and active American Association for Justice members who died in a tragic plane crash. This award recognizes members who have carried on the legacy of Fritz Wiedemann and James Wysocki. When called upon, these individuals demonstrated extraordinary leadership among the AAJ Board of Governors and contributed to an overwhelming and unprecedented success during a time of great challenge.

Navan is the firm’s lead attorney on the metal-on-metal hip implant litigation, which involves thousands of victims who have defective hip implants causing severe pain, metal poisoning, and in some cases revision surgery. These defective hip devices are manufactured by various companies, such as Johnson & Johnson and DePuy Orthopedics, among others. Navan has earned a Martindale Hubbell AV Preeminent rating. In 2013, he was selected as Beasley Allen’s Litigator of the Year. Navan is married to the former Bridget L. Maynor, of Irondale, Alabama, and they have twin sons, Roman and Jaxon.

The award was presented during the Leadership Breakfast at the AAJ Annual Convention in Baltimore, Md., on July 27.

Wonderful to work with

Beasley Allen did a great job with my case. They were wonderful to work with. They were available by phone when I needed them, treated me with the utmost respect and worked hard on my behalf. If a need arises in the future, I would definitely call on them again.
