About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

David Martin brings almost two decades of experience to his practice as both a defense attorney and prosecutor.

Martin began his career during his third year of law school, where he was granted temporary admission to the West Virginia Bar to practice in the West Virginia College of Law's legal clinic. There, he was committed to serving clients who could not afford an attorney, negotiating and settling consumer matters, landlord/tenant disputes, and more.
Martin continued his service to the community after graduation in 2002 as a staff attorney for Blue Ridge Legal Services, providing legal assistance to low-income residents living in the Shendandoah Valley.

In 2005, he transitioned to the Commonwealth Attorney's Office of Harrisonburg/Rockingham, where he prosecuted violent crimes. This position honed his negotiation skills and provided him with valuable knowledge of prosecution procedures. The positive relationships he forged with local prosecutors and law enforcement continue today.

More recently, Martin was a founding partner of Big Valley Law, formerly Martin, Miner, and Hahn, PLLC, where he worked tirelessly for his clients for over ten years in criminal matters and bankruptcy.

Great private attorney and appointed public defender
I have been represented by David Martin in the past as a private attorney and recently as a public defender for a misdemeanor traffic case. He is a very talented lawyer and will be always be quick to answer inquiries in a very prompt manner. Every personal experience I have had with him has been incredibly positive and I am always satisfied with the case resolution. He possesses a great rapport with the prosecution team and judges which will create a fair atmosphere. Mr. Martin is also very honest and personable which develops a great attorney client relationship and confidence in his abilities. As my case continued, I saved up enough funds to retain private representation and asked Mr. Martin if he thought it was necessary, but he assured me that he would fight equally as hard for his client whether retained privately or appointed by the court. I trusted him and continued with him as my public defender which resulted in the case not being prosecuted due to his effective strategy. I was both incredibly pleased and relieved with the result. If you can afford an attorney, his private lawyer fees and retainers are very reasonable. As an appointed public defender, you can expect the same professionality, exceptional representation, and a positive case resolution. I recommend David Martin and I am happy to see he now has his own personal law firm, he definitely earned it.

Great job!
Mr. Martin got my son's reckless driving charge reduced to a $50 fine. These results were better than I was hoping for. He did a great job and I am very pleased with the results. I highly recommend him!

The Best lawyer in the Shenandoah Valley
Mr. Martin helped me out of a dire and unhopeful circumstance. He believed me when there were many people who did not believe me. In the most unlikely circumstances, he got me acquitted, and continues to help me get my life back on track. If it wasn’t for him, my life would still be a train wreck. But, because of Mr. Martin, I now have a future again and I am forever grateful for him.
