  3. Lawsuits and disputes
    25%
    I focus on litigation and trial of business and commercial disputes before judges, juries and arbitration panels.

I genuinely enjoy practicing law and the more complicated and convoluted the legal problem or the case, the more I really enjoy figuring out a strategy and a solution. However, I understand that clients aren’t quite as enamored about the legal challenges they may be facing. My goal when I work with clients is to clarify and simplify the legal issues, offer the best ways to achieve a favorable result and actually make a recommendation on how I think we should proceed. I think it’s also important to understand the limitations of litigation and when a lawsuit might not be the best option. However, if we do need to file a lawsuit, I’ve handled hundreds of litigation cases over the years including complex business disputes, multi-million dollar shareholder and breach of contract litigation and other business and commercial litigation. I have the experience to navigate a case through discovery, settlement, trial and an appeal if necessary.

My practice is limited to business and commercial litigation and trial. I do not draft contracts, offer advise on company formation or otherwise have a transactional practice. My minimum retainer is usually $5,000 although it may be more or less depending on the case. While I accept some business cases on a hybrid-contingency, there is a minimum fee required to off-set the inital time involved in investigation, drafting and filing a lawsuit.

Great advice
Mr Champagne has gave a detailed response to a problem that was bugging me. When I asked another question via message he further explained to me what he thought of my case and gave more insight into possible problems. His answers were helpful and to the point, I can clearly recommend him.

Good lawyer to have on your side.
Marty. did an excellent job for us. He negotiated s settlement with two different insurance companys when they had previously offered nothing. We can recommend him and will use him again if the need arises.

Very Helpful
Mr. Champagne was very helpful and very attentive in helping to settle our case. He was very quick to respond and really got the ball rolling on the case after years of letting it sit with a previous Lawyer. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking!

An HONEST Attorney!
I have visited Martin Champagne Jr. at his office in St. Petersburg, FL. for a consultation about an issue that I wanted his opinion on; about filing a lawsuit. I was struggling with this issue and had several conflicting responses from various legal council on this potential lawsuit. After consulting Attorney Martin Champagne Jr., he gave me the pros and cons and explained, in great detail, my legal rights and was forthright in advising how working within the legal system, I would be directly affected and benefit or this becoming non-beneficial for me. He 'Opened my eyes', was honest, direct and gave the BEST council I've ever received! I also consulted with Attorney Martin Champagne Jr., recently, from Colorado, and he responded QUICKLY. He again, gave great council and was able to direct me to what I needed to do for a resolution. Indeed, Attorney Martin Champagne Jr. is an affordable, honest, direct and top notch ATTORNEY! I highly recommend Attorney Martin Champagne Jr.!

There really are good lawyers!
It has taken me a ridiculously long time to write this, but I haven't forgotten! Marty renews your hope in the existence of good lawyers who DO have your best interest at heart. But he is beyond good, he's stellar. My wife was being sued by an insurance company after an accidental fire in a rented home. He made us feel so at ease from the very beginning and handled everything so well that we barely knew it was happening at all. He analyzed the situation and developed an innovative solution that took us out of the claim entirely. Amazing. Then he topped off the whole thing with a generous gift to us that we will always remember. Even more amazing. I don't think we could be bigger fans. God bless you, Marty!

Not All Lawyers are Created Equal
I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Martin Champagne in 2004 when prior counsel was unable to continue with an ongoing claim. It’s not easy assuming a case mid-stream…but he handled that case, as well as others in the years following, with professionalism and a concerned and caring attitude. He is attentive to details and makes himself personally available to his clients, as he sincerely cares about the outcome of their case. Mr. Champagne’s professionalism is beyond reproach, I highly recommend his firm for any legal issues.
