Honest Lawyer
I did not hire Mr. Martin but did have a phone consult with him. I was unsure about a possible Landlord-Tenant lawsuit. Mr. Martin took the time to explain the pros and cons of my situation, he was very honest and forthright. His insight helped me see all potential sides of the situation and helped me make an informed decision.
