Nick is the One!
For the first time in my life I found myself in need of a personal injury attorney and Nick was definitely the right choice. The whole process was new and I had no idea how to get from A to B. Nick guided me through every step. He made sure that I saw the correct medical personnel and that they were convenient to my location. I think my favorite part of Nick's help is the way he responded to any question or concern I had. If this is new territory for you .... Nick is the One!

One of the best personal injury attorney's in town!
If you are looking for a personal injury attorney who actually cares about their clients, then Nick Martin is the guy. I was so amazed on how well informed he kept me throughout the case and how great of a communicator he was. He puts in the work so you don't have to worry, and I'm glad he was over my case and helped me with my settlement!

Great Attorney
Very professional. Strong work ethic. Always responded to all e-mails and phone calls quickly. Never had to contact him twice. Never made false promises. Treated me as a friend instead of a client. Can't say enough good things about him.

Nick Martin, a real star !
After the insurance company for a driver that hit me tried to play games for months, I retained Nick and within 38 days I was paid thousands of dollars!!! No back and forth, gave him the information he needed and he delivered results and told me where to pick up the check!

Highly recommended
Nick represented me twice in court that led to obtaining a permanent protective order in a domestic violence situation. He genuinely cared and fought on my behalf so my kids and I can now live in safety and lead a healthy life. He was able to win 75% of my total attorney's fees back. I was awarded everything I asked for and more. Nick listened well to my concerns, is honest, and explained things that I was not aware of in an understable way. He is sharp and asks the right questions inside and outside of the courtroom. It's one thing to say you have a good lawyer, but it's another thing to say you have a good lawyer who understands abuse. Nick is both, and I highly recommend him.

DUI
We hired nick to help me out with my dui/disorderly conduct case. He was extreme responsive and knowledgeable about these two areas. I was placed in a in-treatment rehabilitation center and completed some dui classes and got to keep my license! Would recommend to anyone looking to hire an attorney for these things!

Mr. Martin was fantastic.
Mr. Martin took care of my legal issues completely. He was reassuring and knowledgeable. Once I called him I could immediately tell my problems were in good hands. He is hard working and ethical. I could have not asked for a better attorney.

Understanding the problem!
In dealing with my divorce, Nick was patient and understanding in helping me deal with a contentious situation with my wife. He worked diligently to arrive at a settlement agreement that both parties could sign. Through his efforts, it was unnecessary for us to actually go to court. I would most definitely recommend him if you are in need of an attorney.

Excellent, top rate, smart and hard working
Mr. Martin was our attorney for 2 years in an extended, unusual and complex case. He was very hard working, caring, responsive, straight forward and very reliable throughout the process. He was able to skillfully navigate the complex legal issues for us. He is respected by his peers, and his in court room skills are excellent, resulting in a very favorable judgement in our behalf. We would highly recommend him without any reservations.

Great experience with an attorney that cares for his clients
I hired Nick Martin to represent me in a lawsuit against an employer. He was diligent with his understanding of what the issues were and sat with me until it was clear what needed to be done. Mr. Martin kept in constant communication on next actions and details. I could not have asked for a better day experience during a stressful time. I would highly recommend Mr. Martin’s services to represent anyone in need of a quality attorney.

Great job!
I went to see Mr. Martin after I was involved in a car accident. I was not at fault. However, I had both medical and auto insurance claims to deal with. Mr. Martin met with me and discussed what all would be involved in the process. I knew that I would need help and hired him. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and thoroughly explained options for me if decisions needed to be made. I was able to get things settled quickly because of his hard work, professionalism and frequent communication. He certainly made it less stressful for me.

Great Attention To Detail
Nick took the time to meet with us pretty much anytime. He ALWAYS responds quickly if not immediately. Tough to actually get an attorney to answer his phone but Nick does have that quality. We do appreciate him!!

A true fighter in your corner.
One of the longest, most drawn out custody cases battled in Gwinnett, Nick was a fighter for my son and I. No matter how many attacks were brought against us, he delivered victory, year after year. From delivering victory in the court room, to the court of appeals, his honesty, his integrity and his time spent on your case will provide you the same results, success. I ONLY recommended the Washburn Firm and Nicholas Martin to my friends because he will be honest with you about your case, he will explain what to expect so you are not blindsided and he will take as much of the stress off you, helping you understand it is a legal matter, no matter how emotional. I strongly and without hesitation recommend, if you need a lawyer, contact Mr. Martin. The proof is in results, and as a father, I have maintained custody in each custody battle, he has won my attorney fees countless times, and he won’t let you down.
