About Marshall

Learn Marshall’s areas of practice.

I am a co-founder of Martin & Helms, P.C., in Huntsville, Alabama. Born and raised in Decatur, Alabama, I obtained my undergraduate degree in finance at the University of Alabama in 1992 and graduated from the University of Alabama School of Law in 1995.

Since 1995, I have concentrated my practice on representing individuals and the families of individuals who have been harmed or injured as a result of the wrongful acts of others. While practicing in both state and federal courts throughout the country, I have litigated cases involving issues of products liability, tractor-trailer and automobile collisions, dangerous roadways, mass torts, fires and explosions, business disputes, as well as defective pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices and household products. I am dedicated to achieving the best possible result for my clients and have won millions of dollars for individuals who have been injured.

In the area of mass torts, I was actively involved in the representation of individuals who suffered kidney failure as a result of ingesting oral sodium phosphate bowel prep medications prior to a colonoscopy or surgical procedure. In recognition of my work in this area, I was selected as a member of the Plaintiff's Steering Committee for In Re: Oral Sodium Phosphate Solution - Based Products Liability Litigation, Multi-District Litigation 2066, and served as the Chair of the American Association of Justice's Oral Sodium Phosphate Litigation Group.

Additionally, I participated in the Trial Lawyers Care pro bono project which provided legal representation for victims making claims with the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund of 2001. I serve on the Board of Directors for United Cerebral Palsy of Huntsville and the Tennessee Valley. I have also served as a founder and chair of UCP of Huntsville and the Tennessee Valley's Annual Krispy Kreme Challenge Run Fundraiser. I currently serve on the Board of Bar Commissioners for the Alabama State Bar.

My wife, Kim, and I are the proud parents of two girls. We are members of First United Methodist Church in Huntsville, where we have served as teachers for the children's church program.

Excellent. Highly Recommend.
Success in law requires a bit of boldness which attorney Clay Martin brought during the representation. Regarding the legal aspect, Clay was articulate, knowledgeable, thorough and effective. On the client side, he took personal interest investing time in me and my family responding to return messages and phone calls with assurance and thoughtfulness. Having been the recipient of a rear end collision I was left badly injured and incapable of managing legal matters on my own. Attorney Clay Martin offered relief from all the outside stressors so that I could focus on what was really important, my health. I made appointments and met with both a large, known, regional law firm as well as Clay Martin. I immediately knew Clay was the perfect fit for my personal and professional legal needs. I felt comfort in the presence of Clay. He new my name and profession (important given that the accident occurred while working) which automatically trumped the other attorney. But more importantly he took his time upon the initial visit reviewing legalize, the hurdles we would likely face and options in moving forward. Clay invested in me as a client by giving his time responding to every email and phone call from my family and I in a timely manner. I also felt his specialized knowledge and expertise in personal injury for 20+ years was greater than I’d receive in a large law firm where any old random attorney was assigned. If you’re seeking a professional, informative, knowledgeable and caring attorney specializing in personal injury, automotive accidents and wrongful death, I highly recommend choosing Clay Martin.
