Reid Martin has been trying lawsuits for over 20 years and is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 1997 and has tried numerous jury trials to verdict.

He is one of very few lawyers that handle medical malpractice cases. Reid will personally meet with you and review your medical records with appropriate experts to determine if you have a case to pursue. Most recently, a jury awarded a $43.32 million verdict against Tyler-based East Texas Medical Center and one of its doctors, finding the hospital grossly negligent in its retention and supervision of a doctor on probation whose abandonment and improper care led to a patient’s complete loss of his quality of life and ability to provide for his family.

When you are considering the hiring of an attorney, make sure you meet with them in person and find out if they actually go to trial and present cases to juries. Come visit with Reid in person to find out for yourself if he is the lawyer you want to hire.
