I came to be represented by Mr. Lilienthal following a motor vehicle accident involving multiple vehicles. As a military service member, I was looking for an attorney that had represented military personnel before. Martinson and Beason's web site showed them to be familiar with the military and, specifically, the military medical system to include their peculiar billing system. Agreeing to represent me, Mr. Lilienthal and his team developed a sound approach to handling this complex case. In most cases, I was provided updates on my case by Morris personally. When I had called to speak with Mr. Lillianthal and he was unavailable, I would always receive a call back from him within 24 hours. Hindered by the fact that one of the key witnesses spoke very little English, they coordinated for the use of a trusted interpreter in order to depose them. The resultant testimony of that witness and several other key witnesses following my deposition by the defendants attorney at the Martinson and Beason law offices ended with an award in my favor. The agreed-to fees were fair and, in my opinion, were below industry norms.

Morris was the most prepared lawyer, he outshined 7 other lawyers. Morris communicated everything that was going to happen, he was knowledgable. He cared about me. I would use him again, without hesitation.

Mr. Lilienthal took our case after another lawyer said we had no case. He made everything very easy for us, even came to our house so that my elderly mother didn't have to travel to his office! He kept us informed the entire time. He was a master at working with my mom. She is hard of hearing and often doesn't understand things. Mr. Lilienthal always made the effort to include her in decisions, making sure she understood what was going on, and preparing her for what might happen in a trial. Mom was especially nervous about the deposition but he spent a lot of time going over possible questions so that when the deposition happened, she did a great job. He was always polite to both of us and was a true professional. In the end, our case was settled through mediation. However, Mr. Lilienthal was prepared to go to court. He did extensive research in her case and his deposition of the defendants was outstanding. I was so impressed! At no time did he encourage my mom to do anything that was uncomfortable to her. He gave her his advice during the mediation but it was left up to us in the end to decide if a settlement was in her best interest. I am happy to recommend him to anyone who's looking for a fantastic lawyer. He is sharp, intelligent, and very nice-and I would not want to be the attorney who goes up against him!

Morris helped me to a fast settlement that was much higher than anyone had expected. He spoke to me in words I understood and was there for me 100% of the way. Morris is a very intelligent, down to earth, great guy and I would recommend him to any family member or friend. Thank you for all your help Morris!

Morris was great to work with. He cared aabout us and meet all out needs. He answered all phone calls all 200 of them at least. He also called me with updates and spoke with me like a true freind. He cared about things that was going on in our lives. I will always think about Morris everytime we get in our new car thanks Morris for all you did for us.

Mr. Lilienthal was very professional, understanding, and knowledgeable about what to do with my husband and his car accident. It was a simple process because Mr. Lilienthal took care of everything and informed both my husband and I on what paper was needed and where the case stood each step of the way. Mr. Lilienthal was great to work with, treated us like people he knew, and made us feel important.
Thanks for everything!

I was rear-ended on my way to work and was pushed into another car. The young man that was driving claimed he tried to step on his break; however, he could not prevent the accident. He later reported to his insurance company that I had already hit the car before he rear-ended me. This was his way of trying to cover himself from being responsible for both vehicles. After searching and talking to several lawyers for weeks, I knew Mr. Lilienthal was the perfect candidate to work on my case. He is honest, knowledgeable, hardworking, and trust worthy. He understood my distress and fought non-stop until justice was served. He was able to resolve this matter within six months. Thanks Morris for all you do!

Honest hardworking, and professional; willing to listen and carry out the needs of his clients to best of his ability. Client comfort is very important to him, does not make a decision unless the client is satisfied.

I was stopped on the interstate due to traffic in August of 2009, when someone was texting while driving and did not see the stopped traffic ahead. That person slammed into the SUV behind me doing at least 55mph, and smashed my small convertible between the large SUV and a truck in front of me, totaling it. I was very lucky that I didn't take the direct impact, and that the truck in front of me was light weight, since it came up my hood and eventually slid back down. I sustained head and neck injuries and had to undergo months of therapy and treatments. I had a pre-existing condition that made my case difficult, but Morris did an excellent job in bringing a settlement from the at fault party's insurance company. He told me exactly what to expect, kept me informed during the entire process, and was able to get what I considered a very reasonable sum of money for the damages. All in all, I was very surprised at the speed we were able to settle, and how easy it was for me. (I really didn't have to do much -- Morris and his staff took care of everything, which was a big relief.) I would definitely recommend Morris to anyone needing an injury lawyer. Especially now that these "texting while driving" cases are becoming more and more prevalent.
