Martha was so honest and forthcoming on what she was qualified to do. She was straight to the point and never wasted any of our time. That was really helpful. She always gave me the time I needed and when it was an issue she was not an expert at, she referred us to other lawyers with that expertise. I would highly recommend her as an output driven employment law attorneys in albuquerque new mexico and also

Excellent law Firm!
Our Committee worked together with Martha L. King, P.C. to anticipate, prepare for, and defeat the other side's arguments and ploys. The attorneys helped us uphold the community's democratic rights to remove a leader for misconduct in office. The attorneys researched, wrote and argued in such a manner as to ensure a favorable decision. They kept us apprised, were responsive and were strategic, while keeping fees reasonable. I highly recommend this law firm.

She has been practicing federal Indian, sovereignty, Navajo, and local governance law for a great many years and has the attention, passion, focus, and drive to draft all manner of laws, amendments, and policies. Additionally, she has a great deal of experience litigating, even winning federal Indian law cases during a period of time when others weren’t.
