Tim Martin did an excellent job of defending the above.
He spent the necessary time & resources to prepare and defend Mr. Niccolai.

Mr. Martin assisted my daughter with three felonies and one misdemeanor. He kept my daughter out of jail, assisted with rehab, doctors, and counseled us thru the roughest times of our lives. Mr. Martin arranged for my daughter to enter into a DuPage County Program instead of Jail. She was on 24 months probation, is clean and sober for 2 1/2 years, she is going to college and getting straight A's, If it weren't for Mr. Martin and his team, my daughter would not be on the path to wellness, recovery, and happiness, and looking forward to a bright future. Thank you so much to the Team at Mr. Martin's office.

He is definitely a great lawyer, I would 100% recommend him. The law offices of Martin & Kent were really friendly helpful knowledgable & successful with helping me with my case. If I ever need a lawyer again which hopefully won't be for awhile I will defiantly call him.

Charged with multiple felonies in DuPage Co., The rest of my life was in the balance. I interviewed many lawyers over a months time. Mr Martin and his associates jumped to the top of my list because of the professional manners they dealt with all my concerns. I had difficult decisions to make from the beginning through the end, without a combination of prayer and Mr Martin's knowledge and navigational skills of the court system I would not have proceeded correctly. Some would have made " A great deal " Mr Martin proved me "not guilty" and returned me to continue my life. In my opinion NOT considering Martin and Kent would be foolish.

TIM MARTIN, along with his partner Scott Kent, are the best lawyers money can buy. Tim's experience and preparation got me a win, a well deserved win. He made his points clear to the court to prove me not guilty.
If I need a lawyer again, Tim is on my speed dial. I highly recommend Tim Martin as a skilled lawyer.

Tim Martin was my attorney for a very serious case, charge was drug possession and without getting into too much detail, let's just say it was a LOT of drugs. With 2 felonies already on my background (one of which I served 1 year in IDOC) I thought I was completely screwed. Mr. Martin went in that courtroom, worked his magic, and I got off with serving only 2 weeks in Dupage County Jail. I could potentially done YEARS in prison.This man is absolutely amazing, I wish I would have known he was around years ago!!! Forever grateful, thanks Tim :-)

Whoever needed a Lawyer in such dire situations which could potentially land you in jail, brand you with a felony, or turn your whole world inside out? I know I did. My situation was sensitive and needed to be done in what seemed an untimely manner. My job was on the line and I NEEDED HELP. PERIOD.
I was recommended many lawyers to see and review to choose who I wanted as my front man for my case. I came across Mr. Martin; who was recommended to me by several people to include law enforcement personnel. I read about him, what his intentions and main focuses are to include his background. Having DEFENDED OVER 10,000 CLIENTS AGAINST CRIMINAL CHARGES and AUTHORED THE PROSECUTORS DUI MANUAL I knew Mr. Martin is the lawyer for me. (All this can be seen on his website) When I called him he calmly went over my case with me and what I had to do to proceed through the steps. In all aspects of my case, Mr. Martin did all the leg work for me. I was in another state so it was hard for me to make arrangements to attend court but that never stopped him from meeting the demands that I set out to accomplish. A very professional lawyer who takes his practice extremely serious. Mr. Martin knows what it is like to be human and understands even the most law abiding citizen can make a mistake. Someone who has never been in trouble with the law in there 22 years of living can fall off the tracks. Tim P. Martin was there to get me back on track, keep me moving towards my future, and leave my past to him.
I was given a huge break in my DUI case and was put on court supervision with a checklist of task to complete. I was never convicted. He gave me an opportunity to change my life and I ran with it. Never would I think a lawyer could go as far as Mr. Martin did and I know I am not the first nor will I be his last. He is out to fight for the general population. Tim Martin will fight for you and not leave a case unresolved. Thank you again Mr. Martin

Perhaps if your case is worthy of his attention, he may do a great job. I suspect this may be true, but my case clearly was insignificant to him and while 6k was spent for the defense, he only seemed interested in striking a deal. I know people who get arrested often lie about their innocence but I really was in this case (innocent) and I couldn't live with the horrible unfair charge. This was during the period he was going through a divorce so maybe it affected his performance but after clearly dealing with indifferent ( and condescending) advice, he flat out told me I was lucky I didn't get a more horrific charge that what I received and I had no defense!! Now when you are innocent of the original charge and then have your own lawyer accuse you of something worse, was unbearable. I am not an unreasonable person but this was totally unfair. So I decided to get a different attorney. I will put his name out there. Bitterness (especially since I won) is not healthy or the right approach - but I can't help it. Let me also mention that when I informed Mr. Martin ( nicely through voicemail since he never returned a call) that I retained another attorney, not only did not respond but his office never sent any of the defense documents. His office has video footage and statements that we never had access to for our defense. His office probably still has this stuff. I know he could have gotten in trouble over this but what a horrible thing to do. He never returned any money ( he made an easy 6k) - of course he had the right to keep the amount for the time he put in but believe me, the hours would have not been much if he were honest. I know things happen, but no one from his office showed up for one of the initial court dates- can't remember why but I really can't believe our experience was unique. Again, the year was 2009 and perhaps this was a tough year for him, but there was no excuse for the insensitive comments he made and the callous attitude when someone's reputation is on the line. So let me conclude by warning anyone who is considering have Mr. Martin defend them. FACT: A case that he insisted was unwinnable was creamed in court - easily as the transcript will show. Mr. Martin argued ( argued!) that I should take the plea- and frustratingly did not want to take it to court. When I refused any deal that I would have to plea guilty to knowing I was innocent- he responded that I was lucky I didn't get a worse charge. Shame on him and hopefully I will help someone avoid a horrible experience. Thank you.

In my early 20s I was a heavy drug user arrested several times and in and out jail. Upon my release from prison in 2004 I finally cleaned my life up. Over the course of ten yrs I was a law-abiding, tax-paying, gainfully employed citizen and father. Unfortunately I relapsed after all of that time while going through a tough divorce. I was arrested for my third felony drug possession charge and fifth misdemeanor in the wake of this slip up. The prosecutor in the case wanted a lengthy prison term based on my prior convictions and naturally I was scared to death because unlike 10 years ago when I admit I was a drug-addled criminal who didn't care about going to prison, I was now a good man who had made a terrible mistake.
This is why I hired Mr. Martin. I knew that he had experience in the prosecutor's office, so I hired him with the hope that his history with them would give him a chance to open a dialouge that goes beyond my criminal history. He assured me upon our first meeting that as long as I stayed clean and out of trouble I would not see the inside of a jail cell.
His diligence paid off for me. He got me a plea agreement of 24 months probation. No drug court, no community service, and most importantly, no jail or prison, so I was able to continue on with my life, keep my job and take care of my kids.
I couldn't be happier with result and would recomend Martin and Kent fully for anyone who makes a mistake and finds themselves in a situation where they need legal representation.

I don't usually write reviews, but wanted to take the time to post my experience with Tim Martin and his office manager, Julie Nelson. I've used Mr. Martin's services on two separate occasions over the last 2 years. Both times he provided me with exemplary legal services, counsel, and advice. He was on top of the many details of my case, represented me extremely well in court, and in both cases I received results that far exceeded my expectations. He delivers when it matters most. Ms. Nelson went above and beyond to help me with every aspect of my case. She is one of the most organized, efficient people I've ever met. I trust them both and would not hesitate to hire their services again in the future
