Amit is Amazing at what he does!!!!
I just want to thank everyone on Amit’s team for taking the time out of their day to help settle my case from start to finish. Each person played an important role during my case. Whenever I had a question or wasn’t to sure about certain things, no matter what time of the day someone was available. Amit made sure that I was very happy with everything before we made a settlement. Amit expressed that no matter what happened, He’ll still be my lawyer no matter the decision. He’s very passionate and concerned about his clients and goes above and beyond. I personally just thank him so much!!!!

Excellent lawer
Amit Jay Shah was a fantastic lawer who helped me with my work related injury. He had answers to every questions I had and did a great job on my case. His staff were well prepared and very friendly when I needed help. Amit was clear in explaining everything I needed to know. I highly reccomend him as your lawer. There was no "lost the case" in Amit's case. Im very happy I hired him as my lawer.

Great attorney
Amit Jay Shah handled my case with care he was honest with me through out the whole entire case. He was explaining to me how the process works and I told him that’s why your my lawyer. At the end of the day you won’t find a better attorney that Amit Shah every time I emailed him about different matters he responded back to me the same day. If I had to do this over I will be calling him

Mr. Shah is a good lawyer. We went through a long process to get a resolution. He did all the paperwork, his staff attorneys attended all court hearings and he negotiated the settlement. He fought for me and made sure all the bills in reference to my health care were paid. He followed-up to make sure that I did not lose any of my benefits as well. Overall rating is Excellent!

Workers comp case
My husband has been through a horrific, life changing work explosion. Obviously, never expecting this to happen to us and dealing with the Workers Comp insurance company, we had lots of questions and concerns for my husband's present and future life. AMIT SHAH is an amazing person, kind and understanding. He is extremely knowledgable, explaining each step and exactly what was going to happen or could possibly happen. He was thoughtful with our concerns and worries. He responded quickly to my emails. He spoke with us simply and very matter of fact. What was a scary and complicated situation for us, he made seem quite simple. I would also like to compliment his team of associates. They are also amazing, knowledgeable with our case, responded quickly to our questions and concerns as well. Recommend 100%

Workmen’s Comp Injury
Upon my first contact of inquiry. I received an immediate reply. During this very challenging difficult time for me I was looking for guidance. Amit astutely assured me together we can make this unfortunate circumstance give me a feeling of restitution and contentment. During the duration of all proper necessary actions , Amit and his staff treated me with Warm personable Respect and Professionalism. He always kept me in the know going the extra mile to make sure I understood what and the why the importance of the sequence of events . I commend his staff for all contact via phone and or emails conveying and explaining in a relatable nature to be understood by the client without a legal degree. I Always was greeted with a welcoming forthcoming wanting to help demeanor. I am Thankful for being able to move forward , feeling fairly compensated, and with the heartfelt peace to put a difficult misfortunate happenstance behind me. Thank you with A Grateful Heart of Appreciation to Amit Shah and Staff. Martin Law is who comes to mind for a Workmen’s Comp injury. Kind Regards, Valerie

Amit is on top of everything.
I didn’t expect to receive any compensation due to my current medical condition. Several months passed when I received an unexpected call from Amit. A settlement had been reached. When you think it’s over

Best Attorney experience one could have
The team at Martin law's Firm truly went above and beyond in handling my workman comp injury claim. They diligently explained every situation in detail to me and answered all of my questions.They were times that even on weekends Mr Shah would reply to my emails. I had the pleasure of dealing with Amit Shah, who, from the very start, was upfront and realistic regarding the situation and expectations.Through out this very hard time for me, and my family. Mr shah always responded very quickly to any question or concerns that I may have had at the time.One particlar example that left a great feeling of reassurance that I was truly in the best hands of someone who truly valued and cared about me as person not just as a client, was when Mr Shah was on vaction and I emailed him and he took out time to respond not only by email but also reached out to me by phone to answer my question moreover; to make sure that my concerns were a priority and I that he was on top of the situation. In the end the group maximized my claim--for which I am very grateful. I was very fortunate to fall into the care of Mr shah and Martin Law Firm Group, and I would recommend them to anyone in need of a law firm to handle a workman comp injury matter.Amit and his team were truly a blessing to me and my family during an extremly difficult time. I see mr Shah not only as an attorney but as someone I trust and will recomend to anyone that whats an attorney who values and understands but most importantly is empathic to the opsticals one may be facing during a recovery of an injury. Your Truly Frank

Great Attorney, Great Team!
I would like to THANK Amit Shah and his wonderful team for the great job they did on my case! In April I called Amit not knowing where to turn, I was injured and just terminated from my job. He didn’t paint any pretty pictures to make me believe it was going to be something it was not… He said, I THINK we can help you. I trusted him and his entire team throughout this 4 month process knowing they are doing whatever they could for me, and in the end they got me a settlement that I am very satisfied with. I would definitely have them represent me if I was ever in this position again. Thank you Amit, AJSTEAM, and Martin Law for doing a fantastic job bringing a quick resolution to my case. I also wanted to thank you Amit for going above & beyond with the referral you gave me that helped me win that case too!
