  • Steven L. Rayman

    I endorse this lawyer.I know Marty almost exclusively as opposing counsel. He and I have had many cases together over the years. Marty not only fights hard for his clients, he also wins. He knows when to choose his fights, trying to get matters resolved when he can but going to the "mat" when he has to. We had a case a couple of months ago. I thought I was going to win and in the very end, Marty convinced me that I had no case. I have great respect for him.
