Martin was called to the bar in February 1989 and practised as a criminal lawyer for 10 years or so before moving to civil work.

Court of Protection
He advises on property and financial affairs matters and health and welfare questions, such as those involving the appointment of a Deputy or Attorney or requiring the decision of the court. This sort of work is particularly suited to direct access where a meeting can be set up at short notice and necessary documents drafted quickly and simply.

He is a member of the Mental Health Lawyers Association.

Martin appears at inquests on behalf of families, insurers, local authorities, health authorities and other interested parties. In recent years these have covered such matters as health care in prisons, the quality of response by the emergency services and the suitability of accommodation for the elderly as well as road traffic accidents.

Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence
Martin has many years of experience in these types of cases at all levels. This experience means that he can provide quick advice on the papers or after a meeting. Any case with merit can then be conducted on a conditional fee agreement ('no win, no fee') or, if complex, referred to reliable solicitors so that the litigation may be conducted efficiently and safely.

Martin regularly acts for individuals and local authorities in housing disrepair, nuisance and related matters. In particular he acts in cases involving both personal injury and disrepair.
