About Me

Michael S. Martin's practice emphasizes general civil litigation including construction
defect cases, commercial and consumer collections and enforcement of judgments. Mr.
Martin is also actively involved in code enforcement activities on behalf of the
firm's municipal clients, including the cities of Ojai, Fillmore and Ventura. These
activities include criminal prosecutions of municipal code violators and seeking
civil remedies.


 


Mr. Martin is admitted to practice before all State and Federal courts in California.
He is a member of the California State Bar, the American Bar Association and the
Ventura County Bar Association (where he is a member of the Trial Lawyer's section).
 Mr. Martin also serves on the Board of Directors for the Santa Paula Theater Company
and is a member of the Port Hueneme Chamber of Commerce.


 


Mr. Martin earned his B.A. from Abilene Christian University in 1991 and his M.Div.
from Princeton Seminary in 1994.  He is fluent in Portuguese which he learned while
he and his wife worked in Brazil with a non-profit organization for five and a half
years. Upon returning to the United States from Brazil, Mike joined the firm as a
clerk, began studying law, and earned his Juris Doctorate from Ventura College of
Law in 2004.
