What others have said about Hon. Timothy J. Martin


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD2217
This is a man who listens, who cares about getting it right, and does. I have tried hundreds of jury trials and he is among the best judges that I have ever seen. He is neither arrogant nor hasty.


Comment #: MD2209
This judge decided my case based on emotion and not on hard evidence or the facts. I had all the paperwork and a voicemail to prove that the plaintiffs' allegations were false, and yet this judge sided with them one hundred per cent. He has refused to do a sit-down interview with me, or even answer the simple question of how he could believe someone's testimony that they were unhappy with the work that I did for them after a voicemail surfaced with them stating the exact opposite. This judge also made a huge legal blunder and let a drunk driver get away with a DUI. Fortunately, the Superior Court unanimously overruled him. Stick with the easy family law cases, Judge Martin. You don't seem to make the right call outside that sphere.

Even-tempered, attentive and listens carefully. Makes good decisions in tough custody/family law cases. Very experienced in family law matters, and does what's best for the minor children.
