  • Martin M. Holmes

    I endorse this lawyer. My experience with Mr. Messinger began as his adversary. I represented one of the defendants in a complicated lawsuit he brought against several defendants. Including some large banks. I was greatly impressed with his knowledge of the law, and the skill and tenacity with which he advanced his clients cause. It was clear that he cared about his client. He earned my respect and admiration and I recommend him most highly.
