  • Margaret D. Stock

    Martin Lawyer is a true expert when it comes to immigration matters, and he is particularly adept at professional employment and investor cases. He is careful and thorough in his analysis, and knows the "ins and outs" of government regulations, statutes, and court cases like no one else.

  • David A. M. Ware

    I endorse this lawyer. Martin knows it all when it comes to employment based immigration and even wrote the bible, "It's a Matter of Degree" on H1B work visas. His opinion is sought out by other attorneys working on difficult immigration cases across the country. He particularly shines when it comes to immigrant investors, having successfully gotten green cards for over 80 investor families. There are other fine immigration attorneys in SF, but Martin stands out from the pack by his wealth of knowledge and experience.
