Look no further, hire Ian Martinez
I have had the pleasure to know and work with Ian Martinez over the past 10 years. He provided legal services to our company, and while we were not the biggest, we never felt as if we were not an important client. Working directly with Ian was a pleasure as I knew he was on top of things, and it showed in the outcome of our case (we won!). I never felt as if I was chasing an answer down, as he was always on top of things and knew every detail without hesitation. He is professional, extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and handled all my concerns with the highest level of detail and care. I would recommend Ian Martinez without reservation.

Great Job
In 2020 I had to file a lawsuit against a real estate company for breach of contract. During this legal process Mr. Ian Martinez did a great job and finally we won the case. For this reason, I am very grateful for the help and effective legal advice I received from him and his paralegal assistant. I highly recommend Mr. Martinez.

Amazing job
He could not have been more transparent with us and was more worried about the best outcome for us than the best outcome for him. Would recommend to anyone.

Eviction Lawsuit
Mr. Martinez' did a stellar job, ultimately making it possible to collect several months of past due rent plus legal costs and making sure the evicted tenant left the property on time and with no damages to the unit. Through the entire process he was accessible, professional and on top of everything. It was clear to me that he was looking after my best interest and results showed it. I can sincerely recommend Mr. Martinez and will work with him again should it be necessary.

Great Attorney to have on your side
My companies have relied on Ian's wise counsel for more than a decade. He is honest, fair, a great communicator, gets results and is very aggressive in pursuing our legal rights. You can't ask for much more when seeking professional legal representation. I would highly recommend him.

Best Attorney in town!!!!
We had reached out to 3 different attorneys With no response. However, Mr. Martinez and his team addressed a collection issue that was more than a year old. Not only did we collect it was within 10 days. All the personnel we had contact with from this office was extremely professional. Everyone was knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. We recommended this team to anyone who wants professional representation.

Litigation, Contracts
My name is Nuri and I would like to thank the excellent work that my lawyer Ian Martinez did. It was an excellent decision to hire their services. The case was not simple and he managed to get justice for me. He was always honest, direct to explain what was happening and very wise to advise me. His attention was permanent and the price very good. Very capable people with a lot of experience. I recommend him and I will hire him whenever I need it. I even asked him to write the lease to rent a commercial property of mine and that document is impeccable. The best commercial lawyer I met in South Florida.

Slander and Defamation Case
Mr Martinez reviewed my case in great detail and candidly provided me with my legal options. He made me feel as though my case, though financially minor, was as important as any multi-million dollar litigation he may have handled. Mr Martinez returned my calls timely and was in attendance for all of our appointments. I felt well represented and I am confident I made the right calls under his direction and support.

Awesome attorney
If you want a straight-forward, no BS attorney that actually works the case instead of dragging it on and on like the $500 an hour big name firms THIS is your attorney. I've been using him for over 8 years.
