LAWYER IN FLORIDA HIGHLY IMPRESSED WITH MR. MARTIN
Mr. Martin handled a workers compensation case for a mutual client our ours. I handled a Florida matter and he handled the matter in South Carolina. We had never met before. Mr. Martin was thorough, quick to respond to all requests for information and clearly very knowledgeable about the laws in his state. Most importantly, he settled the case for a very substantial sum in a very short period of time and the client was thrilled. I would be honored to send him any personal injury or workers compensation matters that may come my way in South Carolina.
