I could not ever say enough about Martín's hard Work, he is always on top of things to win your case.
You don't have to be looking for him, he will contact you and keep you up date.
There's a point you don't see him as your Lawyer.
He is an amazing human being that really wants to help you.
I feel so lucky to have him by my side.

El Sr. Martin Lijtmaer nos ayudo con un caso bastante delicado donde requería un abogado con todo el conocimiento posible. Nos otorgo una consulta gratis para plantearle el caso y lo contratamos de inmediato. Es un abogado de alto conocimiento en su áreas de especialización. Nos trato con mucho respeto, nos mantuvo informados del caso y nos hizo sentir tranquilidad en la etapa de mas angustia de nuestras vidas. El Sr. Martin es una persona honesta y con alta integridad. No puedo enfatizarlo suficientemente.
El caso lo resolvió de una manera genial y nos devolvió la vida. No duden en lo absoluto en llamarle es simplemente el mejor.

I have had the pleasure of working with Martin Lijtmaer as co-counsel on an ongoing multi defendant felony matter in Pasadena. His experience, work ethic and tenacity make him a superb choice for any criminal case. He is one of the hardest working criminal practitioners in Pasadena and he goes the extra mile for his clients. I recommend Mr. Lijtmaer without reservation and hope I have the opportunity to work with him on more cases in the future.
