I have had the pleasure of working with Martin Lijtmaer as co-counsel on an ongoing multi defendant felony matter in Pasadena. His experience, work ethic and tenacity make him a superb choice for any criminal case. He is one of the hardest working criminal practitioners in Pasadena and he goes the extra mile for his clients. I recommend Mr. Lijtmaer without reservation and hope I have the opportunity to work with him on more cases in the future.
