"The Best" is not good enough for Martin.
About four months ago, I received a letter from LA city attorney's office that they filed a complaint against me. I was in a desperate situation and did not know what to do. Since I am a F-1 visa holder, the situation was even more complicated with immigration issues.
Many lawyers I contacted - some have very impressive background (i.e former prosecutors) and some with many years of experiences, working at big firms. The common denominator among them was this: now many of them were interested in the person who I am. Many of them asked very specific questions even before I explained the situation - "Have you ever been arrested?, where and when the incident took place? " - once they think they got everything they need, it was obvious to me that they already finished their on summary of the situation and conclusion.
Martin is, first and foremost, a human before a lawyer. He cares of you and listen to you very carefully in order to understand who you really are. He first carefully examined the situation as I told him what happened. He then explained the situation from a legal point of view and the possible consequences. (Many lawyers were very vague about "possible outcomes," and tries to use it as a leverage.) I was very impressive first for his excellent knowledge but also because of his personal approach to me, which was very unusual.
After I decided to hire Martin, he and I closely communicated. He explained whenever some important issues are brought up. He suggested his approaches and tells me his opinion, but leave s the decision up to me, which made me very comfortable.
He fought a good fight with me and I believe we got the best outcome possible. He went beyond his call of duty and I cannot appreciate more of his professional service.
My friend, I hope my review can help you to open up a chance for you to call him today. Give yourself a chance and speak with him to discuss your case, even if you believe you do not have any hope.
Lastly, the fact that you are on Avvo tells me that you must be going through a lot of hardships just as I did in last few months. Prosecution is a long, tiring time, and you need a good partner who can help you get through. I highly recommend Martin, based on my experiences with him.
