Aggressive, personal representation. Your case stays with Pit Martin -- it is not handed off to an associate.
Every case is prepared as if it is going to trial because that creates the best possibility for a favorable plea offer. Fewer than 2 out of 100 cases actually go to trial, and the prosecutors (Deputy District Attorneys or City Attorneys in Municipal Court) know the defense attorneys who try cases. Do not leave your fate in the hands of an inexperienced attorney, or an attorney who doesn’t try cases -- it makes a huge difference.
Pit Martin tries cases -- that is what he does. He will personally handle your defense -- your case will not be handed off to an associate. His philosophy is that the plea offer has to be significantly better than the worst case scenario at trial or the case goes to trial. Pit has found the more work put into a case, the greater the reward. To use a football scenario, "the more work we create, the greater the chance for a fumble or turnover, and the greater chance for a win."
