"I have had the opportunity to litigate both with and against Mr. Ralph Martinez on several occasions. The words I would use to describe his style and practice are 'indefatigable', 'articulate', 'intelligent', 'velvet glove over a steel fist', 'diligent', 'careful', 'considerate', and above all 'professional'. He is able to obtain the respect of opposing counsel while he is thoroughly dismantling their case. Mr. Martinez is and has been a lawyer whom I would choose to represent myself and members of my family; coming from a trial attorney such as myself, there is no higher praise."

-- Mark Sayre, Esq., Partner, Foley & Mansfield, Los Angeles, CA

"I thank you for your excellent job! You were very professional but at the same time very compassionate. Sometimes, people get caught in what they are doing and they don't see the person in front of them. You were there for me always, so don't lose this precious quality!

I will recommend you highly.

God bless you. Thank you again."
