Mistakes are made, careless actions take place everyday. This doesn't mean your a bad person.
I'm a hard working man with two jobs trying to get out of debt and live a better life. After a long stressful draining 16hr day I had a vodka cocktail right after work. I lived very close and me being a bigger guy I thought one drink was ok. My coworker had asked me for a ride... long story short I was arrested for DUI.
I hired Christopher Martens as my attorney. He made me feel comfortable. There was not one ounce of judgement in his eyes. I felt he saw the good person in me when I was disappointed and couldn't see it in myself. He was confident that I could reduce my DUI to a wet and reckless and he did just so.
After settling my case, I feel like I have a second chance. This time not taking these situation so lightly and carefree.
Thank you Christopher Martens.
Christopher was very informative, knew a lot about the law and how to avoid losing my license. He helped me to get a minimum sentence for my DUI and not lose my license. He was very supportive and understood all my concerns. He addressed all my questions and was flexible with his payment. He also has a great personality and is very easy to talk to. I would recommend him to anyone needing a good, reasonably priced and conscience lawyer.
I'm not sure how to properly thank Christopher for taking my case and making me feel confident and comfortable when I needed it the most. He listened when I ranted. He heard my concerns when I was completely freaked out and was understanding to what I was going through.
I'm a single Dad of three little kids who I sacrifice my world for and I was about to lose everything I had because someone had no regard for me as a person, parent or human being. I was falsely accused and prosecuted for a criminal offense that I never did nor happened. I woke up one August morning to find out I was being charged by Kings County and that I could face a year in jail, heavy fines and my life completely upended. I was appointed a public defender who I felt ; showed no empathy for my situation and already deemed me to face some sort of penalty just because "if the shoe fits". They had no evidence to support their case but went ahead and took five months of my life anyway... I felt robbed . Mr. Martens from day one was confident that a successful outcome would be the case and that's the only thing he would fight for.... We weren't excepting any pleas or Deal........ So... DISMISSED. For lack of evidence...... Thank You Mr. Martens and Staff!!! I can breath again. Even though my time with you was brief, my appreciation will last for life....
I was facing a felony charge in CA. I was very freaked out and paranoid I was going to loose everything and be away from my daughter, not to mention I have bad health which was a concern. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Martens to anyone facing charges. He got my felony reduced to a misdemeanor as well as got my 30 days jail time reduced to community service. He cares about his clients and puts all his knowledge and talent into his clients cases. If your looking for a dependable lawyer that gets results this is your man.
I was recently arrested over the summer and charged with a misdemeanor that falls under the umbrella of domestic violence; it was very stressful. I received several advertisements in the mail, from various law firms. I liked Attorney Christopher Martens professionally made post card, and the speed in which it arrived in my mailbox. After a free consultation, in Christopher Martens Visalia law office, on mooney blvd, across from pep boys, I opted to hire him. I did not have to go to court... Christopher handled everything and his office staff was very friendly. Christopher always immediately returned my phone calls, texts, and emails; he even called me back on a Saturday, holiday weekend... Now that's dedicated! My charge, thanks to Attorney Martens, was not filed, and I get to move on with my life, I a positive way. I highly recommend the law offices of Attorney Christopher Martens.
I was going over 100 mph, he got my case dismissed with no points or fine but was hard to get ahold of. Once I sent in the retainer, he didn't call me back to update me much. That being said, he still did his job with great expertise. It would have been better peace of mind if he returned my calls, but he did notify me without prompt of the end result which was very gratifying!
I would highly recommend Christopher I've never had a problem getting in contact with him every time I call he always answers. We used him for a case my son was involved in my son got the best possible outcome for a case that could have sent him to prison for many years. Christopher is professional and very understanding and caring. I would definitely use him again if the need arose.
