I’ve been practicing law for 50+ years, 45 as an ABOTA member, I’ve tried well over 250 cases to verdict, civil and criminal, and going to trial without the assistance of Tom Martin and his team is like riding a bicycle with your eyes closed. Sub Rosa, assets checks, finding people that don’t want to be found, the entire package – nobody does it faster, more completely, and for a better price. The earlier he’s involved, the better the result. If fact, that’s one of the best ways to AVOID a trial! Or a bad case. I learned a lot from this book – so it IS possible to teach an old dog new tricks!
