Highly recommend Martin Baba
Martin Baba represents me in a Ch. 7 Bankruptcy procedure. This was a difficult and uncomfortable decision for me. Martin Baba made the process simple and manageable for me. He emailed me with a list of needed information over several days instead of giving me an overwhelming list to maneuver through by myself. I greatly appreciate his experience and professionalism that helped me through the process. He impressed me most for his hands on attitude. He personally answered my calls, emails, and text messages. He always made me feel my time was important. He treated me as a person! I highly recommend his services. If you’re in a situation where you are being overwhelmed or bullied by a situation; he is certainly the attorney prepared to get you through to the other side of the issue and to help with a fresh start to your life. He is a serious attorney that guides you through whatever the process while respecting that it is a “big deal” to your life and future. I am thankful to him for his willingness to guide me forward. I spoke to four attorney’s offices over 6 months. The first three actually stopped me from filing because they overwhelmed me. At most, I had five minutes of the (other) attorneys' time. I spoke to staff that actually made me feel small and like I had failed. Martin Baba is different. He explained the complete process and then broke down the process to make it manageable. I am grateful.

Executive Assistant
I hired Martin Baba to handle my Bankruptcy case. Martin provided great legal advice and guidance during this very difficult & stressful situation. Martin was always very responsive, knowledgeable and honest, even when I didn’t want to hear it. While working with Martin, I always felt as though my situation was in adept and trustworthy hands. He went above and beyond to help me steer my case in the direction I needed it to go, even when it didn’t seem possible. I highly recommend Martin to anyone who needs to file bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy Made Easy
I was originally a bit nervous filing for bankruptcy because of all the legal jargon but Martin made the process as easy as possible. He made things easy to understand and was really easy to talk to. He answered all the questions I had and always made sure I knew what to expect next in the process. I would definitely recommend Martin to anyone looking to file bankruptcy.

Highly Recommended!!!
I was going through a dissolution and it was the first time for me (hopefully the last time) and it was so stressful. Martin Baba helped me with everything. He made me feel very easy and did such a great job. I didn't have to worry about ANYTHING!! He had all the bases covered, was honest with me about everything and highly exceeded my expectations. He worked with me and went out of his way to make sure this was not only a stress-free time but also a meaningful transition for me. What else can you ask for? I highly recommend Martin Baba!!

highly recommend
Martin is a fantastic attorney. I started my bankruptcy back in 2012 and not long after the process began I was let go from my employer and had been on unemployment for some time. Once I found a job and got back on my feet my wages started getting garnished. At that point I was not sure what to do so I decided it was time to finish my bankruptcy and called Martin. He was more than willing to pick up where I left off and was able to stop my wage garnishment after the 3rd garnishment which he was also able to get the 3rd garnishment back to me. He never was too busy to answer any questions I had anytime I called him. He was on top of everything I needed to ensure nothing was left out of my bankruptcy. At the time I started my bankruptcy I had a credit rating of 500 and it has gone up to 634 and my bankruptcy was discharged in December 2014. I highly recommend Martin, he is an excellent attorney and makes the bankruptcy process easier and worth it.

Martin is the best. Hands-down
After going through an extremely contentious divorce and custody battle, I found myself having to set-up a whole new household for me and my two children, without a job. (I was a stay-at home-father for 9 years) I didn't have the best experience with my divorce attorney and was dreading having to hire another one to help me navigate through the bankruptcy process. Martin restored my faith in attorneys, plain and simple. He treated me like a friend and I could tell he GENUINELY cared about getting me through the whole thing with a minimum of stress on my part which, after what I had just been through, was wonderful. Don't go to one of those "high-volume" places that spend all their money on TV ads--you will be nothing but a number to them. As a former US Marine, I know something about teamwork and counting on the man next to you. I would want Martin in the trenches with me without question. You won't find a better attorney or a better man.

Bankruptcy
Martin was very quick to respond to any questions I had. I had a few questions in regards to my credit, one year after my bankruptcy and he called me back promptly. He's very knowledgeable and I couldn't have asked for a better Attorney. You won't go wrong hiring Martin! Happy I did! - Jessica
