First of all, my last attorney was a mess and there were misleading information and trust factors that brought me to AVVO to find another attorney. When I read the reviews on Martin Stephen Sir I knew I need to call this office immediately and behold I was placed with Peggy Smith. Peggy is an outstanding attorney and she has compassion and patience. What Peggy worked with me on were back payments of child support and alimony. Peggy presenting the evidences as what was shown and worked through what the other party brought in and she and the courts found no evidences why payments should not have been behind. Also, the other party asked for child support to be lower and the judge found this to be null and void as well. I know Peggy could have dig deeper on other matters, but it was no need to and the judge made the final decision in my favor. Ms. Ashton was a big help as well when it came to getting documents done in a timely manner. If you are looking for trust and honesty then call Peggy because she loves her job and she will get it done with integrity. Just to add, I was very skeptical because of a shady attorney I had before her but she made me feel very comfortable. FYI, I probably will be needing there services again soon:):)!

I had a different lawyer at the beginning of my divorce. It was a nightmare. I have to say switching to Martin Sir was the BEST THING I ever did. From the beginning I was kept informed, called, emailed and was handled with professionalism and compassion. I would never use anyone else. Peggy was a fire cracker who goes in to win. She is not a pushover and is a force to be recon'd with however very sensitive to your feelings and needs. John and Ashton were beyond words in their professionalism, knowledge and compassion. If you have any questions on who to represent you Martin Sir is your answer.

This was not only my first divorce but my first legal matter, ever. I was clueless and bewildered. Martin Sir and John Agee's knowledge, experience and understanding was comforting and empowering. I had contacted many others, but within 5 minutes of our initial consultation I knew, this was the firm that I needed to use. They kept me in the loop and any stray inquiries were answered promptly. I just couldn't have had a better experience in a bad situation. My divorce was finalized and child custody granted a few weeks ago and I am so grateful to this team for their insight, efficiency and strength.

I have to say this law company is the best in Nashville. Martin and John have been great, through my divorce last July and now with my children's child support and parenting schedule. They are positive and honest, and they make it happen. Thank you so much for making my life so much better and right!!

It’s been a great experience working with Martin Sir and his team. Each person in Martin’s office is so caring and compassionate to your situation. The team doesn’t judge why you are there; they simply look out for your best interest and try to help you in every way possible. Even the office assistant, Ashton, goes above and beyond what is required of her in order to make you feel comfortable and welcome. I would definitely recommend Martin Sir and Associates to anyone looking for a great law firm to represent them.

I have worked with a multitude of lawyers within numerous capacities throughout the past several years on cases requiring high levels of adversity, experience and adaptability. I came to Martin Sir and Associates for guidance on my highly-contested divorce and custody case after other lawyers failed to meet the standard par of care every client should receive during such a delicate time. Not only were my expectations met, they were exceeded.
The tenacity, protection and professionalism demonstrated by Peggy Smith in the court room is not one to be under estimated. Forever leaving a lasting impression, this lawyer has the ability to present facts in a detailed, confident and aggressive manner, assuring that her client’s voice is heard and their needs met.
Alongside her is, John Agee. His work is of superior quality and his attention to detail is immaculate. John was able to help navigate my case in order to produce the best possible outcome for all parties involved, especially ensuring that my children were put first. His strong interpersonal relationship skills, driven by his passion to assist, never left me feeling ignored or neglected. John was always quick to respond and very tentative throughout the entire process.
It’s a great privilege and a true blessing to have met Martin Sir and his associates.

Martin Sir (John Agee) was an excellent experience for me. I used them long distance and they were very attentive and knowledgeable. I would like to commend John Agee, Paralegal for his professionalism and candor. Very good in his follow-up. He presented to be both concerned and nonjudgmental. A good advisor in the civil matter I was faced with. Please give them a try; don't let the fee scare you...they are worth every dime. I would rather have high end competent counsel then bargain basement tomfoolery.

I found this firm through an internet search and submitted a request online to have someone contact me about a divorce. John sent me an email instantly and contacted me the next business day. He explained the process over the phone and scheduled a meeting. I was informed throughout the whole process and never had to wait for replies regarding any questions I had. I appreciate having a law firm that made my stressful life change very easy and positive.

I was very pleased with the level of service that Martin and his staff provided.
They displayed a great deal of professionalism, and a willingness to work through whatever challenge that impeded our progress.
John Agee, and Peggy Smith, were extremely knowledgeable, and comforting, during an otherwise stressful time in my life.
I would offer my recommendation to Martin and his staff for anyone looking for a competent, caring, professional.

Martin Sir's office was the second attorney I retained for my divorce. When I contacted their office, it was on a Saturday and my call was returned right away, even though I was not yet a client. They were like night and day from my first attorney. They promptly returned my calls and emails. They always took time to answer my questions and prepare me. They explained the legal system aspects of the divorce that I needed to know and put me at ease. Their service, I feel was above and beyond the norm . I was very pleased with the way the office handled my case. It was a very stressful time for me and I am grateful that I hired this firm. I would definitely recommend them if anyone asks me.
