Martin has over 15 years in and out of the court room. Prior to joining the Chastaine Law Office team, he was a public defender in Placer County, California, and held the esteemed position of Assistant Chief Defense Attorney. Martin’s extensive trial experience includes arson, domestic violence, driving under the influence, fraud, theft, sex offenses, and homicide cases. He is also highly qualified to handle the toughest of cases including death penalty sentences. Martin keeps up to date by regularly attending capital case trainings to ensure that he can provide the best possible representation.
Martin left the public defender’s office so he could bring his expertise to the private sector and have more time to focus on individual client needs. Martin has an impeccable reputation and thrives on getting the best results possible, no matter the charges. Because he is dedicated to staying on the cutting edge of criminal law, his input at the Chastaine Law Office case strategy sessions is highly valued.
