Practicing criminal defense in the Los Angeles, Orange County, and Inland Empire areas I represent and defend many good people every single day who are facing tough criminal charges. Why?  Because I know what it is like to be falsely accused.  I know what it is like to be stereotyped and harassed by the police.


Growing up in Southern California, and spending a lot of time at the beach, I was frequently contacted by the police.  Whether I was pulled over in my car, or approached on the boardwalk in San Diego, police officers seemed to want to stop and ask me questions, fishing for evidence of criminal activity.


Fortunately, nothing ever became of those contacts.  However, it did leave me with a lasting impression of police officers, the amount of power they have over us, and how I felt when confronted by them.


I attended Loyola Law School in Los Angeles and was fortunate to receive a full tuition scholarship.  Courses involving criminal procedure, evidence, and constitutional rights immediately appealed to me.  I finished up law school, passed the bar in 1999, and began my career as a criminal defense attorney serving the Inland Empire, Los Angeles, Riverside, and Orange County areas.


Whether your case involves a misdemeanor DUI, or a violent strike felony, I will aggressively attact the prosecution's case in order to achieve the best possible results.  This is achieved by diligently handling your case; thoroughly reviewing your police report; contacting important witnesses; obtaining copies of video and audio statements/ and or surveillance tapes; researching case law that supports your position; and contacting the District Attorney's Office to discuss charges being dropped or reduced.  Ultimately, positive results come from hard work.

Wonderful lawyer!
So the thing I look for when hiring an attorney is if they’re willing to hear me . I hate when an attorney doesn’t let me speak and get my story told,if they do I feel as if they can’t get my point across. I also don’t like when an attorney comes off as arrogant or acts like they’re beneath you. Tye is none of those things he listens to you. He will stop whatever to hear you out. He cares, and he is extremely professional in court I was impressed with his casual word play. He is very smooth and he will fight to get you the best possible outcome. After the case he even took the time to send me a heartfelt message that went beyond my expectations. He is a great attorney but I hope I don’t ever have to get in contact with him again. Lol thanks again Tye.

Professional and diligent! My son was facing some serious charges and the outcome looked bleak. The decision to hire Ty and his team proved to be an excellent choice, they were able to lessen the charges significantly and my son will be held accountable without jail time. I highly recommend this diligent team.

Great Lawyer
Ty has been my lawyer for quite sometime and I can honestly say he is the best hands down in California. Whenever he is needed, he does his job well and delivers with exceptional skills. Him and his wife Yvonne are the absolute best and it's because of them a case of mine was dismissed. Thank you Ty and Yvonne

Tyrone Martinez did everything he could possible to help me with my situation. He helped get my sentenced down from 20 days to 72 hours in a DUI case and it helped tremendously. Ty was very very knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire time and answered every question I had. I highly recommend him for anyone and everyone! Thank you Ty

The MOST Knowledgeable and Compassionate Attorneys EVER
Yvonne Todd and Ty Martinez are a wonder duo! Yvonne Todd, successfully got a bogus charge - an attempt to bully me- a victim of domestic violence dropped, but not until we pushed the DA into a corner and called his bluff as we appeared for trial. Yvonne doesn't back down. She's fearless, knowledgeable, compassionate, and delivers superior client service, reminiscent of a time decades ago when people actually took the time to get to know their clients. She has the highest caliber ethics and integrity. I can't recommend Yvonne and Ty highly enough. Look NO FURTHER- you have found GOLD with this duo. I may have gone through a terrible domestic violence situation, but Yvonne fought hard against a broken system and fought for justice for me. She helped me transition from victim of domestic violence to survivor- She is my "shero" :)

Don't look any further !!!
If getting out of trouble is your current situation, there's no one else I'd recommend to have in your corner than TY Martinez! His reputation for success, excellence and upmost professionalism is profoundly expressed in his work and reflected by his high level of customer satisfaction. I have been represented and counceled by Ty several times and he was able to dismiss my assault with a deadly weapon charge which could have landed me in prison for many years. Because of him I now have an opportunity and have been motivated to pursue a career as a criminal defense attorney. The power to give people a second chance at life is beyond words. I cannot express how greatful I am for his services and friendship. Please don't think twice about it! If you're beyond hope, no need to cry call Ty!!!

Fantastic Job - This firm delivered.
My issue: Petition for a domestic violence restraining order was filed against me by my ex fiancé for a few annoying, poorly worded e-mails I sent her; none of which made any threats of any physical harm. Regardless. I was looking at being slapped with a permanent DV restraining order which is seriously bad news considering restraining orders stay on your record and disallow certain rights. To make matters worse, I'm currently on probation for a DUI from a couple of years back and I seriously didn't want to deal with any additional legal troubles. Yvonne Todd, Esq. handled my case from start to finish and after my first consultation with her I felt confident she would be able to get me out of this ordeal. Yvonne was very easy to get a hold of and our line of communication was great. Prior to my hearing she explained in detail what her strategy would be and this helped reduce my stress level. Results of hearing: Petition for DV Restraining Order denied! Yvonne knew exactly what she was doing because she's a pro. Thank you!!!

Outstanding Criminal Defense Lawyer
My wife and I had an argument over our children, she called the police and made a false report against me. I was arrested on Felony Domestic Violence, Assault With a Deadly Weapon and two counts of Child Endangerment. The following day, my wife filed for a Domestic Violence Restraining Order and law enforcement filed a Criminal Protective Order against me. After four days in jail, I was released on a 75K bail bond, ordered to attend a 52-week batterer intervention program and could not see my children. On my court day, I was assigned a Public Defender who did not want to hear my testimony and basically accused me of the charges and information given to her by the District Attorney. At that point, I didn’t know what to do and thought I had no choice but to plead guilty for something I did not do. My family and I did some research for criminal defense attorneys. The Law Offices of Tyrone R. Martinez stood out amongst other prestigious reputable lawyers. I read his reviews, profile and his official record of the State Bar. I knew Ty was the one I wanted to represent me. After discussing my side of the story with Ty, he immediately studied my situation, started strategizing using techniques that I would not have imagined until he explained it to me the way he saw things in a different perspective. He made sure that my rights and interests were protected. I felt hopeful that someone finally believed in me and was willing to put his all into the case. We selected the jury and trial lasted three days. Ty’s closing statement made the jury envision the true facts of my case and they deliberated and decided the verdict within 40 minutes. “NOT GUILTY ON ALL FOUR COUNTS!” That was incredible! I was shocked, overwhelmed and literally in tears to hear the verdict from each one of the twelve jurors. Ty is an amazing attorney who knows the system and the law very well. Even though he is very busy, he was always available by email and by phone. He really made me feel confident of my case and got the best outcome possible. Ty demonstrated professionalism, outstanding workmanship, legal knowledge, caring and patience throughout my case. I highly recommend Ty Martinez and his partner Yvonne Todd for an excellent job well done. They are incredibly outstanding attorneys and reasonably affordable. Do not hesitate to hire this outstanding legal team without a doubt, it will be the best thing you can do for yourself if you ever find yourself in legal trouble. Thanks again to the Law Offices of Tyrone R. Martinez.

A Good Guy
Most people have a negative conception about lawyers. It's a social/cultural thing. Sort of like the way we watch the news and proceed to lay down blanket judgements about cops...until the day you need them. Then all your misconceptions go out the window and you hope to God you get one of the good guys. Well Ty is just that; he's one of the good ones. Ty helped me get through one of the most difficult times of my life. Besides the run of the mill legal counsel and advice I was entitled to, Ty also took care to reassure me that "it's not the end of the world". He really did his best to help me come out of my ordeal with as little damage as possible. Although I really, really hope I never have to hire Ty again (he specializes in criminal law), at least I know I have a reliable attorney to go to if I ever need one again. Thanks Ty

The courts were offering me a total of four years in prison and after hiring Ty, my sentence was reduced to 180 days of house arrest with a private non-monitored company which did not report to probation. It was great because I was able to keep my job and stay out of jail. I will be using Ty AGAIN in about five more months once I am done with probation so I can expunge all this nightmare and put it all behind me. Ty, once again THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR GREAT LEGAL KNOWLEDGE!!!

Outstanding, Outstanding, Outstanding
I have nothing but excellent things to say about being represented by Ty Martinez. This was my first time ever needing representation in any nature and I was referred to him by an older friend. He is accessible, prompt, trustworthy and simply put, knows what he's doing. He kept me informed throughout all parts of the legal process and put forth his best efforts every step of the way. His truthfulness, sincerity, and honesty is second to none and you'd be hard pressed to find better representation. Excellent, excellent, excellent. After facing 3 felony charges, I opted to go to trial rather than take a misdemeanor plea. Ty demonstrated great understanding of the law and proved himself to be an outstanding trial attorney. I am proud to say that the hung jury had a very favorable Not Guilty verdict and the case was dismissed by the judge. Hats off to you Ty and thank you.

case dismissed.
2 months ago I was charged for domestic violence not for a mistaminor but for a felony! I was scared because I didn't do anything to my girlfriend but leave the situation because we were having a heated argument. The neighbors called the cops for the yelling and the cops said I fled the scene so that's why I was tagged for a misdemeanor. I received plenty of letters in the mail for lawyers and called around. I was impressed with the way Ty Martinez was honest and straight up with me so I went with him and it was the best decision. He was able to get my case dismissed. I am very thankful for his help. He always kept me updated on what's going on. I never had a problem of getting a hold of him he always returned my call. He has a payment schedule that I was able to do. I would definitely hire Ty Martinez again if I needed a criminal attorney and definitely refer him to anyone who needs a good lawyer

Would just like to thank Mr and Mrs Martinez for their remarkable work. Quick to respond and led me through every step of my process with ease. Flexible on my payment plan and best of all had my sentence reduced. I highly recommend and thank you again.

My rating for Tyrone Martinez
I had several mail come in after I was arrested. I was most comfortable with his correspondence and chose to go with him. He is extremely helpful via phone and emails and always returned them right away. I never met him until one of my court appearances. I would not even have to attend but he needed my paper work signed by a notary. He handled everything and was able to get charges down and community service. I have even passed out his business cards to some of my colleagues, I feel extremely confident with him and highly recommend him.

Ty is very good
Ty was recommended to me by a lawyer friend, and I have only the best things to say about my experience. I hired him to take care of a failure to appear I had that had turned into a warrant. I was very nervous, and put all of my faith in Ty. He was upfront and honest about the consequences I was facing, and he was completely honest about his fees. There were no hidden costs. Even though my case was probably not a big deal to him, Ty treated me as if I was very important, and was consistently in touch. Due to his skills, I was able to get a good deal, and I feel like I really have someone on my side. Ty is awesome and skilled. I would recommend him to absolutely anyone.

Yvonne is an excellent criminal defense lawer
I searched the internet and discover Tyrone R Martinez & Yvonne Todd. Very next day his partner Yvonne Todd met me at the court and she explained step by step, how we would approach the case and how she would handle. When my future is on the line, and being accused of child abuse, count 1 as felony and count 2 as misdemeanor, a criminal defense lawyer Yvonne Todd will be your rescue. Yvonne was with me every step of the way, from the beginning to the end. To make the long story short, we won the trial by unanimous jury decision on felony and misdemeanor case was hung and favor of us 7 to 5 jury decision. Eventually both cases were dismissed. I cannot even put into words how appreciative I am of her hard work and expertise. My deepest appreciations and gratitude for the outstanding work that Yvonne Todd has shown. She was very professional, prompt, and knowledgeable and handled my case with uppermost concern. I would strongly recommend Yvonne as your attorney any given day.

Case desmissed
Facing a DUI and 2 counts Mr. Martinez was very helpful and left no page un turned. Nothing got overlooked. A DUI is stressful enough but, I had full confidence in his work. He is friendly, confident, thorough, and with his help the case was dropped. I had been unfairly accused on this case and he performed his duties with 100% accuracy. Very professional and I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Martinez to anyone in need of counsel.

Great Attorney!
I was facing a felony domestic violence charge which carried serious jail time and would cost me my job but Ty was able to get it plead down to a misdemeanor and no jail time. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs an Attorney.
