Mountains were small once. It takes commitment, passion, and drive to get from the outhouse to the penthouse. Those words are what fuels Martin’s day-to-day.
As a co-owner of Texas Secure Title Company, LLC and Partner at McAlister & Garcia, Attorneys at Law, Martin’s daily is fueled by the Dallas/Fort Worth real estate market and locale. In less than five years, the title company has grown to nine locations and hovers around sixty employees, but he knows that this is only the beginning & there’s much to do before reaching summit.
For his works in real estate, the legal community and in Fort Worth, Martin has often been featured in Fort Worth Magazine as a Top Attorney and most recently as part of Fort Worth’s inaugural list of The 400 (of) Fort Worth’s Most Influential People. Additionally, Martin has been featured as a Thomson Reuters Super Lawyer for three years and counting.
In the community, Martin is the President-Elect of the Tarrant County Young Lawyers Association, an association that engages in community service and mentoring opportunities. Martin is also a Board of Trustee member for the Texas Land Title Association Political Action Committee. But his favorite vocational thing to do is teach real estate and legal continuing education classes in D/FW to his many friends, clients and colleagues.
Martin thinks he coined the term “Double-Ram,” although it could be debated that he was not the FIRST person to graduate from both Texas Wesleyan University AND Texas Wesleyan University School of Law. Nevertheless, Martin owes much of his success to what both schools and its top-notch faculties did to and for him. A 2009 alumni of the undergraduate University and 2012 alum of the law school, Martin now attempts to “give some of the selflessness he was taught” back to the students – visiting with them several times throughout the semester.
When not wearing many of the hats described above, Martin can be found with his beautiful wife Kathryn (Katy), their three “puppy-dogs” Jack, Ollie and Skye, on the golf course, or on a plane – heading towards the next adventure.
