Every step of the way
Met with Mr. Martin after deciding I needed to file for bankruptcy. He told me everything I needed to do, and worked with my somewhat difficult schedule to make my life easier. He told me exactly what to expect, and how to react to those events. After my case has finished, he has still offered help to make sure that my rights are protected. I am forever grateful for his guidance every step of the way.

Every step from filing , keeping me informed and reassured when needed was done - real customer service from start to finish. I would recommend them highly and often.

BEST OF THE BEST
I have personally read all the 15 reviews on file and could not agree more with all the positive remarks given to Rod Martin and Associates. In March 2010 Rod Martin's firm filed Chapter 13 for both my wife and me. To say that was a difficult decision is an understatement. But Mr. Martin and his staff carefully counseled and guided us through the process with the utmost clarity. The dedication, devotion and responsiveness afforded us in handling any and all issues that arose during the past five years was superb. Thanks to Rod and paralegal Sheila Quay my wife and I are about to exit Chapter 13 bankruptcy this month ( March 2015 ) with a much needed breath fresh air and new start. Many many thanks to Rod Martin and Associates for always being there for us and making the success of this trip possible !!! We sincerely and highly recommend this firm in handling your financial situations.

Roderick Martin's name was given to me by a dear friend. She told me that he could handle my case in a professional and timely manner. I was scared going into Bankruptcy, but Rod kept me informed and set my mind at ease. Any questions I had were handle quickly by he or his staff. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has to go through such a stressful event.

Hope has a name.....
Start to finish, one of the best professionals I have ever worked with. Honest to the core and he does what he says. I got the sense that Rod really does care about the situation his clients are in and works to make a difficult time as pleasant as possible. If ever you need a first rate, professional advocate that will go the extra mile for you and your family, there is only one place you should turn. I consider Rod a trusted friend and I never thought I would find that in an attorney. Hope has a name and it's Roderick Martin.

Roderick Haines Martin,
Attorney Martin's office was professional, responsive and knowledgeable. The staff kept me informed and helped eliminate my worries. Once I met Mr. Martin, I knew everything would be okay. In other words, I was in good hands and could finally get a good nights sleep. The staff was available to answer questions even after my bankruptcy was discharged.

Roderick Martin and staff: OUTSTANDING!
I found myself in a tight deadline for help on a Thursday: a holiday weekend coming up, the courthouse closed on the following Monday, and therefor needing my case filed by Friday (basically in 24 hours). After researching many lawyers as well as contacting 5 or more to discuss my situation, I chose Roderick Martin. He and his office staff had to work quickly and efficiently to get my case filed in 24 hours, and they did just that. The staff - front desk, legal assistant and Mr Martin came together for me, were very helpful answering my questions, very knowledgeable with the process and explaining details to me, and collecting all the necessary documentation needed for my case. As scarey as the idea of bankruptcy is, they could not have done a better job of reassuring me and making it as painless as possible. They even assisted me in a matter that was not even related which showed me they go above and beyond. I do not do many reviews..but they definitely deserve this one! Thank you Mr Martin and Jackie:)

Superb Advocate
Mr. Martin helped us with our bankruptcy a few years ago, and continues to help us through the process. Frankly, he and his staff have been fantastic to work with. Friendly, understanding, compassionate and helpful! My wife and I were nervous about the process, but he demystified it and helped us all along the way. I can EASILY recommend Mr. Martin to anyone who is considering a bankruptcy.

Chapter 13
Last year I experienced an unexpected financial crisis. Mr. Martin and his associates helped me through an extremely difficult event: filing Chapter 13! Mr. Martin and his staff were knowledgeable, courteous, and efficient in providing invaluable legal assistance and support. Mr. Martin and his staff kept me informed, walked me through the process, and didn't mind answering "lots" of questions. Mr. Martin's expertise and professionalism helped de-stress a stressful situation! I highly recommend Roderick H. Martin and his excellent team.

Highly Recommended
Filing bankruptcy was the most difficult thing I've ever done. Mr. Martin and his team walked me through every step of my Chapter 13 and made me feel like I was in control. Although I know this is what Mr. Martin does every day, I always felt like my situation was unique and that he managed every detail personally. He was responsive to my questions and explained the 'why' behind the 'what'. I highly recommend Roderick H. Martin & Associates.

Roderick Martin review
Three years ago I was referred to Roderick Martin for a possible Chapter 7. Mr Martin was very knowledgeable and was very quick at determining that I was, indeed, in a position to file for a Chapter 7. The process, because of him, as well his staff, was handled very efficiently and professionally. There were a number of debts that I had chosen to reaffirm at the time of the Chapter 7, but in our current declining economy, I realized I was not going to be able to continue with all of the monthly payments as they were. Mr. Martin, again, was able to assist me, very professionally with getting a Chapter 13 (reorganization of debt) filed. I would recommend his services highly.
