Sale of out of state property
Mac Martinson handled the sale of some property in another state. His office set up appointments without delay and documents were reviewed and executed within a day of receipt from the buyer and title company. Very professional service at a reasonable fee. I will continue to use this law firm for all my legal matters.

Most Competent Real Estate Attorney in Huntsville.
My husband and I first hired Mr Martinson as our personal attorney. I later became a licensed realtor in the state of Al. As there are many real estate attorneys in Huntsville, I have many to choose from in the area. Mr Martinson and his assistant Alicia are second to none. Their attention to detail and competence is irreplaceable. I highly recommend Mr. Martinson for all real estate needs. He truly allows me, to give my clients, the best customer service possible

Practical Solutions
As an attorney in Huntsville, I have had the pleasure of working with Mac Martinson and other members of his firm on a number of real estate, probate and business transactions. In all those matters, Mac was extremely responsive, conducted himself in a very professional manner, and provided practical solutions to complex issues.

Always Delivers and Always Amazed
I am not a Huntsville native, but we have lived in the area for past 13 years. Mac conducted the closing on our first home purchase and we have used him ever since. Mac not only handles all of our personal real estate matters, living will, investments advice, etc, but more importantly he handles all of my business/corporation matters. Very knowledgeable with corporate law. One of the more recent services that Mac provided was with our New Construction Contract that we had drawn up between us and our builder. Mac reviewed and polished it off. Both the builder and I felt that the contract provided fair guidelines, responsibility, and protected both parties legally. Last thing you want is to have either party feeling doubtful or at a disadvantage. Everyone has an equal responsibility and role, and when the project doesn't go right, everyone has failed. You’re not just getting the service you paid for with Mac, you’re getting good conversation, laughter, wisdom, advise, and furthermore, friendship. Not a lot of us can say that we actually like what we do, but Mac is defiantly one of the lucky ones that shows up to work with a smile (even with the mile-high pile of work on his desk) and leaves with a smile. Everything is always done on time, as stated, and within budget. I know there are a lot of good options in Huntsville when it comes to Attorneys and legal counsel, but I highly recommend Mac and his associates.

Professional Service with a Friendly Approach
Our family has relied upon Mac to guide us through multiple real estate transactions over the past ten years. We appreciate his willingness to analyze a potential contract from multiple perspectives and provide guidance best suited to our specific situation.

Push on through
My closing was postponed due to probate. Mac let me know what and why the closing was postponed and provided scenarios as to what might happen going forward. This communication allowed us to make changes to our finances and make the time of probate work to our advantage. Mac was simply great at seeing our closing through to the end. We appreciate his professionalism and certainly recommend Mac and his staff to anyone considering a real estate purchase. Many thanks.

Lawyer
Mac Martinson helped my husband and I with legal business matters prior to opening our business in 2007. He was readily available and knowledgable and really cared about helping us. My husband and I were well advised by Mac and would choose him again if we had it to do all over again. There were many things that we were unaware of that Mac brought to our attention and remedied for us. He helped us make the right decisions and we could not have been happier with his services.

Mac's Review
I work with real estate deals on a daily basis and deal with many different real estate attorneys. I can honestly say, without a doubt, that Mac Martinson is my preference. There is no doubt, that he is the most reliable, most dependable, and has the fastest turn around time out of any attorney I deal with. It is comforting to know, if there is a title problem, question or concern, Mac is always avilable to help or solve the problem. There have been several occurances where I have had to schedule a closing in a very short period of time and Mac ALWAYS accomodates! I would recommend Mac for ANY real estate matter.
