  • Joseph Steve Franco

    Excellent attorney. Meticulous, rigorous, and very well respected by the local legal community across the South Bay by judges and opposing counsel. If you're looking for a tough, analytical and tactical attorney, then I highly recommend this firm. There's a reason why Attorney Martinez has 5 stars -- because she is good.
