"As a Judicial Receiver I often find myself involved in contentious and complex litigation, either as a plaintiff or as a court-appointed fiduciary. With Alan Martin's pragmatic legal advice, both from a legal, as well as from a strategic business perspective, I have been well-equipped to navigate my way to the successful conclusion of many legal actions. These matters have included recovery of funds for investor-victims in SEC enforcement actions, unwinding of complex real estate transactions, disposition of assets, judicial foreclosures, and other complex matters wherein sound legal advice was needed. Alan has a calm, yet firm demeanor which allows him to distill complex and often emotional issues down to their basic elements so that a solution can be found. I would highly recommend Alan and his firm to other court-appointed fiduciaries and indeed to anyone needing legal advice in business litigation and insolvency matters. "
