“Martin was professional… very informative… personable & answered all my questions.
He was candid about the accuracy of his response which enabled me to feel confident about making the right decision.
Thank you Martin for your candour.”

“I found Martin’s firm on internet several years ago when my husband needed Employment Law Lawyer. Out of all the lawyers I contacted during my search, Martin was the only one who responded himself (rather then his secretary) and was very much to the point in his reply – we knew then that he is the lawyer that my husband needed.. He settled my husband’s case very quickly and efficiently. Little did I know that in April of this year I would need to turn to Martin for assistance with my ex-employer. Just like in the case with my husband, Martin answered all my questions very quickly and professionally. He reached very fair settlement for me and very short time. I will not hesitate to turn to Martin again in a need of great litigation lawyer and if any of my friends (or previous co-workers) will find themselves in a need of Martin’s services – I will give Martin’s contact information with pleasure.”

“The minute I met Martin I knew. I knew not only that he was the right lawyer that I was in much need of but also a solid human being. I had found myself in unfamiliar territory as an executor to an estate dealing with several contentious issues that had no visible horizon in sight of being resolved.
In our first meeting/interview Martin presented me with an articulate and comprehensive overview of the laws and responsibilities that pertained to my role as an executor, the laws pertaining to the estate, and the rights of the beneficiaries. Given that the process I was involved in had become contentious and I needed a good estate and litigation lawyer. Martin was everything I could ask for.I walked away from our first meeting knowing I was in good hands and I never looked back.
At several junctures of the process in dealing with the disgruntled beneficiaries I thought it would be prudent to go a particular direction and several times Martin presented me with a different way to go. He never skipped a beat. The contentious issues were resolved and the estate liquidation was completed.
Thank you Martin for your knowledge, experience and commitment to excellence.”
