After spending four years as a state prosecutor in Tampa, Martin went into private practice in 2004 with Daniel J. Fernandez. Martin took the litigation skills learned as a state prosecutor and expanded the focus of the firm from criminal law to criminal law and civil litigation. Clearly, Martin’s entire legal career has been fighting for victims.
Martin is perhaps most well-known and respected for the commitment, tenacity, approachability, and resourcefulness that he brings to bear on behalf of his clients. These qualities honed through years of litigation, makes Martin and his firm formidable adversaries who are uniquely adept at determining the value of a particular case.
Thanks to his time with the State Attorney’s office, Martin has gained more trial experience than most attorneys achieve in a lifetime of practicing law. Since insurance companies are increasingly opting to take claims to trial rather than settle, Martin’s trial experience has proven to be invaluable.
Martin and his wife, Heidi, also are active in the community. They sponsor 2 to 3 students each year to attend the University of South Florida through the USF Latino Scholarship Fund. So long as these students maintain a certain GPA, Martin and Heidi pay, in cooperation with the Helios foundation, for these students tuition for 4 years. Martin was introduced to the USF Latino Scholarship fund in 2002 and has been a board member with the USF Latin Advisory Panel since 2003.
Furthermore, they are active in their children’s school where Heidi was on the auction committee and a homeroom mom, the Boy Scouts of America, the Girl Scouts of America, Knights of Sant’Yago, and the Ybor City Rotary Club where Martin served as the Sergeant of Arms from 2012 through 2013.
Martin and members of his staff are fluent in Spanish and are available to answer questions you may have regarding a recent injury or arrest. Call today and make an appointment with a lawyer in the firm. You will meet the lawyer you hire.
