Ed and his wife had been running a daycare for 16 years when they awoke one day with their house surrounded by the police. Ed was arrested and placed in jail and his family was afraid. Not knowing what to do, he reached out to Mike from the Chastaine Jones, who gave him a solid defense plan and proved his innocence in court.

I found Martin to be easy to talk to, and accommodating of my timelines

I was very satisfied with the two consultations I received with Martin Jones, as preparation for representing myself. I was impressed with how efficient Martin was in understanding the details of my case, clearly he is very versed with the legal process. He was able to help keep the main topics at hand so I could get all of my questions answered. I found Martin to be easy to talk to, responsive and accommodating of my timelines. I would definitely use him again in the future should the need arise.

Martin Jones knowledge of the law was excellent

My original opinion of the PD was that it was the option of last resort. I now believe it may be the option of first resort. . He has a good working knowledge of the court room and helped us understand how the system worked. He appeared to have good relations with the district attorneys office. I interviewed several private attorneys all them knew Mr Jones, spoke highly of him and recommended that I stick with him. I’m sure that attorneys for the PD’s carry heavy case loads. Mr Jones responded to our calls and emails in a timely manor. In court he always made time for our questions. I would like to thank Martin Jones and the PD’s office for their service.
