Great Judge and the absolute best in Prince Georges County. It is always a pleasure to appear before Judge Martin. He is warm, sensitive and willing to listen.

Everyone loves a judge if the ruling is in your favor, its the judge who can rule against you but leave you with the feeling that you made a complete record and that the decision was reasoned and objective that makes truly appreciate him!

This judge has an extreme bias against non-custodial parents. He is anti-fathers, and aids maternal violators of his own orders in endorsing actions in clear defiance of fathers' rights. His dismissal of untruths by custodial parents as "not willful" raises questions as to his judicial fitness. He should be investigated and removed from the bench.

Judge Martin seemed very aloof during my custody hearing. He especially wasted everyone's time and money with his verdict. His findings contradicted his ruling.

As I said with regard to another judge, PG County has too many terrible judges. It is nice to praise a good judge now and then. Judge Martin is everything a judge should be. Win or lose, I feel like a fair hearing was had.

His superior scholarship and knowledge of the law is matched only by his gentle temperament. May he serve on this or a higher bench for many more years.
