At Martin & Wagner, P.A., you work directly with your attorney; however, you also get a team of professionals who support you and your case. As paralegal to attorney Becky L. Martin, I provide Becky with vital and reliable assistance. I am here to address your concerns and answer your questions when Becky is unavailable to do so and to help Becky achieve the best possible result for you, while keeping your stress and costs to a minimum. I am the primary contact between you and Becky, as well as with opposing counsel and their staff, and serve as the main liaison for neutrals and court personnel. I assist Becky in drafting documents, meeting with you, and scheduling appointments/court appearances. I also keep your file organized and, most importantly, I keep track of the status of your file so that progress is made in the most efficient and timely manner.

I know that the legal process is difficult to understand.  I enjoy serving as an understanding and compassionate ear for you and handling your immediate needs. I always attempt to explain, in everyday terms, each step along the way, why we drafted a document, why a hearing is being scheduled, and what will happen at the hearing. My compassion and commitment to you is genuine.  It is my goal to help you reach a better place in your life. I’m here to help you!

In addition to Family Law, I have experience in subrogation, personal injury, property damage, wrongful death, conciliation court, property, estate planning, and other miscellaneous civil matters.
