Martin specialises in personal injury and clinical negligence work. He appears in all courts. Martin started his career at the criminal bar and has made use of skills learnt there in his civil practice. He believes strongly that the burden of litigation for all parties should be minimised as much as possible and will try hard to achieve this in conference or elsewhere. He is happy to travel to court or to accommodate clients.
