First time offender
I hired Martine through a recommendation myself and I'm glad I did. I found myself in unfamiliar waters and did not know how to proceed in this matter. He first had me explain my situation and then proceeded to outline my different options in a clear and understanding manner, which frankly I thought would be difficult seeing how lawyers tend to use big words sometimes. Martine helped me through every court date explaining to me everything that went on during that session and what may or may not happen in our next court date. Over all my experience in this matter has been positive and Martine has met and often exceeded my expectation in all that has happened so far. P.S Martine is also bilingual he speaks Spanish fluently which in my case was not needed but is available to anyone reading this . Se habla espanol.
