This was my first time dealing with the criminal court system. I met with three attorneys and called several others to handle my DWI case.
I am the personality that stresses about detail and how someone presents themselves and the words they use. I was leery of Mr. Martinez at first for three main reasons. First, he seemed like a fast talker. Second, his price was quite a bit lower than the other attorneys. Third, it seemed like I would just be another case in his queue and I would get little attention. After reading a lot of reviews and talking to Mr. Martinez a few more times, I specifically told him my concerns about him and he candidly addressed them. I decided to hire him.
From that day forward, the experience was awesome. They immediately gave me a rundown of expectations and set me up in their awesome MyCase system. This is a portal that centralizes all things related to your case and all communications. It is very helpful and easy to use.
After I hired him, I tried to analyze everything, strategize for Mr. Martinez, asked him a lot of questions, and suggest he do certain things. Then, on one call with him, a calm came over me and I decided to just let him do his job. He and his assistant, Natalie, were very responsive to inquiries and they kept me updated whenever they received new information. My arrest happened at the beginning of Feb 2019 and the case was dismissed on 9/12/2019. I only had to go to the courthouse one time and that was only for a few minutes.
In the end, he was a fast talker because he has so much experience and it just flows for him, his prices are lower because he has a system and process and place, and I absolutely did not feel like just another case in his queue. He and Natalie were always available and were very personable.
I hope I never need his services again but if I do, I will not hesitate to call him. If I ever hear someone that needs his type of services, I will definitely refer them to Mr. Martinez.
If you are on the fence about picking an attorney, do not hesitate to hire Herman Martinez.
