A very wise and experienced lawyer
I have relied on Julio for the past 25 years to guide me and my friends in the right direction in seeking justice and finding an adequate remedy for numerous legal matters. He has always known what to do and how to do it. the best part is that he then did what should be done and did it well. I highly recommend Julio as the one to consult for any insurance related matter.

Julio Martinez and his assistants were great.
I felt comfortable about knowing they had my back and was handling my situation as if it were theirs. I would recommend if any one needed help you would be making the right choice by choosing Martinez Manglardi.

Preliminary Rating Auto Accident
Well, I am using Martinez Manglardi Law Firm for representation for an auto accident. So far I am happy, the only let down is that I personnally visited the office with my injured spouse that could hardly walk.. The person on the phone when I requested the free consultation I guess forgot to offer home visit. Which I found out after my personal visit that they do offer. However, I am happy to have visted the offces anyway to see for myself. The paralegal was sweet and professional. Lets see how it goes.
