About Nancy

Learn Nancy’s areas of practice.

Nancy Martin is a partner at the law firm of Jenkins & Kling, P.C. located in Clayton, Missouri. She focuses her practice on bankruptcy, debtor/creditor rights, commercial law, and civil litigation.

After working several years for a creditors' rights firm as bankruptcy and litigation counsel to residential mortgage companies, Nancy established her own law office in 2009 to offer her clients sophisticated legal representation and insightful counsel. In 2014, she joined the firm of Jenkins & Kling, P.C., as a principal to carry on that mission with renewed focus and support. 

Over the course of her career, Nancy has represented a vast range of creditors and debtors, inside and out of bankruptcy. This experience has given her a broad and varied perspective of the issues that both face--a perspective that is uncommon for many practitioners.  

Nancy is motivated by the opportunity to listen to a client’s story and propose a plan for resolution. She is a problem-solver and does not hesitate to use any of the tools available under law to help her clients reach their goals. 

Nancy serves as member of the Local Rules Advisory Committee for the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, which committee periodically drafts changes to the local rules of bankruptcy practice to improve the experience for both practitioner and litigant. She also presently serve as Vice President of the Hispanic Bar Association of St. Louis and Vice President of Membership of the BJC Toastmasters Club in St. Louis, Missouri.

Best Attorney Ever!!
I just wanted to leave a note on the wonderful experience I had with Nancy as my bankruptcy attorney. Through the whole process she was very supportive and gave me all the information up front on what or what may not happen in the process. She was very informative and gave me suggestions on topics that she didn't directly do in role as attorney so I can make the best choices for myself. I would recommend her to anyone who are going through tough times. She was awesome.

Excellent Attorney
After consultation with Nancy, I knew she would be the right Attorney to handle my chapter 13 bankruptcy. She is a true professional and very knowledgeable in all aspect of a bankruptcy case. She provided detailed guidance on how the process would proceed. Her attention to detail helped everything go smoothly in presenting to the Court what documents needed to be submitted in a timely fashion during the course of the bankruptcy. If you are thinking about filing for Bankruptcy I would highly recommend her as your attorney.

N Stokley Review
Nancy was quick to respond to the many inquiries that we had regarding the BK process. She understood the best options available for our unique situation and helped guide us through an extremely difficult time. She was always very professional and went out of her way to make sure we understood all possible outcomes. I would not hesitate in the least bit to consult Nancy in the future for any and all legal issues that may arise.

Legal Assistance
Nancy was very professional working with me. She summarized my case quickly, worked with opposing counsel to resolve issues, and worked with government agency to complete the case. It was a pleasure to have Nancy assist with my legal issues.

This is your choce
Nancy is great. She knows the laws and treats everyone as an individual and not a check. She's attentive to detail and answers all your questions. This is the lawyer you want. Go ahead and call and set up that initial consultation and from there you will know that there is no need to seek anyone else. Her work speaks for itself and so does these reviews.

Outstanding Attorney
Unfortunately sometimes people run into financial trouble through out their life due to many circumstances, divorce, loss of job, mismanagement of money... I fell into a couple of these categories and had to contact Nancy for assistance. Nancy was a blessing! She was compassionate, knowledgeable, responsive and overall outstanding to deal with in a situation that was quite stressful. I would highly recommend Nancy to anyone.

An Attorney Who Cares About Their Client.
I have had more than my share of working with lawyers in fact I was even married to a lawyer once. It’s never going to be pleasant having to go through bankruptcy but if you have to, you want a lawyer who cares. It’s not easy to find such a lawyer but I can assure you Nancy Stokley Martin is truly concerned about her clients. She worked very hard for me to make sure I got the best possible outcome. I had no surprises and everything I needed to do was clearly laid out for me. You can’t ask for any more than that from an attorney.

Highly Recommended - professional, courteous, thorough and knowledgeable
We recommend Ms. Stokley most highly. We could not be more pleased with the working with her and with the guidance and comfort her professionalism brought to the process. It was a difficult and scary thing to consider bankruptcy, and we began by researching attorneys in the community. We were impressed with Ms. Stokley immediately, that our case would be treated as a unique case, rather than as one of many on an assembly line, or something simply submitted to a template or an automated process. She provided personal attention, patience and a realistic but calm perspective to what was a nearly overwhelming process. We appreciate the time Ms. Stokley took to answer our many questions, and that she was thorough and attentive to making sure that we did not miss anything along the way to resolution. While the result is extremely important - and it was great - Ms. Stokley made the process understandable and endurable, and did not let us lose our dignity. We will always be grateful for her help.
