Honest & Professional
Steve was very honest and transparent with our situation. Instead of pushing his services and collecting money from us right away he gave us advice on ways to try to handle our situation before going that route. If our situation gets to the point, we will not think twice before hiring him for his services.

Fence Encroaching Property
In 2017 my wife and I were getting ready to sell our property. We had a neighbor’s fence encroaching approximately 3 feet and listed on surveys. I Offered the neighbor to move at my expense, give property or purchase property to resolve. Neighbor selected to do nothing over a period of 24 months. Stephen Martin helped with letters and reassured me of my rights. He helped my wife and I understand our options to resolve. With the steps taken I was able to force the neighbor to move the fence, but it took some legal help and pressure from police. He clearly defined my rights. He was available to discuss the issue, responsive, knowledgeable, and well mannered. His letters, calls and negotiation with neighbor’s attorney help to resolve the issue the issue.

Outstanding, Clear Legal Guidance and Advice
I contacted Mr. Martin for guidance on how to proceed with a Small Claims Court case. Perfect guidance! I won the case at the hearing. However, the defendant filed an appeal. At the appeal, the defendant's attorney announced filing for summary judgement against the plaintiff. Mr. Martin's explanation and guidance was extremely helpful--telling me what my options are and how I can proceed to my best benefit. This is a GREAT ATTORNEY!

Mr. Stephen Martin did a Great Job for Us.....
Mr. Stephen Martin did an amazing job at taking a phone call late in the evening and hearing our issue about a home we had wanted to buy but ran into a big problem with the sellers. He gave us great legal advice to prevent us from being at risk at losing our escrow money and how to proceed in the termination of the contract. We are so very grateful for his help and if we ever need an attorney in the future he will definitely be our first choice.

Handled some estate matters - impressed
Mr. Martin helped my brother and I with estate issues during a difficult time, with the loss of a parent. He was very easy and pleasant to talk to, and we thought he was very fair with fees. This was the first time I have hired an attorney, and he left us with a very positive impression of his profession. If the need arises again, I will be contacting him first.

Best Contract Lawyer in the Metro Area
Mr. Martin has prepared both contracts for myself and my father's business. As well as, given us some of the best legal advice we've ever had. Do yourself a favor and protect your interest. Call Steve. You will be treated with respect and given the best representation the STL Metro area has to offer. I almost proceeded into a home sale by owner with a contract full of holes. Mr. Martin gave me the advice and paperwork I needed to make sure me and my family were protected. The contract provided to my father has stood the test in the courtroom more than once. Steve is the best there is.

Consult
Contacted Mr Martin for initial consult on a landlord/tenant ESA situation and his advice was so thorough I felt I should pay him for the free consult. He's been through all situations and gave real life advice and suggestions! I will definitely be using him for all my tenant issues going forward!!

Excellent lawyer; great advice
I have contacted Steve Martin for 2 separate incidents (car accident, personal matter) the past 6 months and was very pleased with his quick responses, professionalism and honest advice/recommendation. He is not a lawyer who is out to make a quick profit; he is there for the client to do what is best in each situation. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Mr. Martin for any legal advice needed.

Excellent Legal Services
I contacted Mr. Martin for his assistance on reviewing a recent MO. supreme court ruling that could have a significant affected on my small business. He was quick to respond and did a comprehensive review of the case facts for me. I was very impressed with this knowledge, ability to find the facts of the case and discuss with me some of the evidence used in the case. He also ascertained for us how this ruling might affect our business practices. I am very pleased and highly recommend Mr. Martin for legal advise.

KMFH
Almost six years after receiving services I needed to know some information about my case, so I decided to call Mr. Martin's office. Mr. Martin was out to lunch at the time, and I was told he would return my call. To my surprise, he contacted me in less than an hour and had no problem spending time to look back at my case and give me the information I needed. He even went as far as to send me copies of the relevant documents. I would certainly employ his services again and with the utmost confidence recommend his services to any one in need of legal aid.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Steve was immensely helpful as I prepared for a hearing far outside my area of expertise-- I was handling a proceeding for a family member seeking to evict a tenant, and Steve walked me through what I needed to know. No bill, no expectation of compensation; merely a professional courtesy that I greatly appreciate."

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"One cannot overstate the technical prowess and thorough knowledge that Mr. Martin brings to the table whenever he is hired on a matter. Good quality legal work begins behind the scenes, in well-ordered files and legal theories. Mr. Martin taught me the importance of both in my time working under him. I highly recommend this attorney."
