Martin Jones did outstanding work

Martin Jones did outstanding work for a family member who has complicated issues that have caused him time and again to be incarcerated. Martin stayed in close touch with the family and helped this person get needed counseling and medical attention. Martins efforts far exceeded what I expected from a public defender. I wish Martin all the best in the future. I believe the criminal justice system could use a lot more like him.

Speaking of the Placer Public Defenders Office itself, this family member was helped on several occasions and I am left with a high opinion of their work

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.
