  • Jeffrey D. Keiner

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Mr. Martinez personally and professionally for over 25 years. He is very bright, aggressive, personable and very dedicated in his approach to legal issues and in his relationships with his clients. He is a very tough opponent in court. If I had a personal injury matter myself, I would retain him.
