David A. Martinez is a seasoned commercial and residential real estate attorney with particular experience in title insurance. Mr. Martinez is highly respected for his legal expertise and approach to resolving a client’s issue in a practical way, qualities that have attributed to him being recognized by his peers as one of the top real estate attorneys in New Orleans through his inclusion in Best Lawyers.
“Through experience I have learned that most people are all fired up about their case, but after they have spent a lot of money on winning they may not feel like they have gained anything,” says Mr. Martinez. “That is why I thoroughly analyze each client’s case from both a legal and practical perspective from the very beginning. When I give my clients an answer I am confident that my opinion will accomplish what they are trying to accomplish while saving them time and money.”
Mr. Martinez has been with Steeg Law since 2003, where he coordinates insurance for numerous commercial and residential transactions, including hotels, office buildings, shopping centers, convenience store chains, and multi-state sales and loan closings, as well as homeowners’ purchases and refinance mortgage transactions.
His practice areas include title examinations, title insurance law and secured transactions. In addition to providing title insurance for closings handled through Steeg Law, as an attorney with Orleans Title, the firm’s in-house title insurance agency, he works with the national accounts offices of its underwriters, First American Title Insurance Company and Fidelity National Title Insurance Company, acting as the Louisiana title agent for multi-site/multi-state transactions, including the sale or refinancing of entire portfolios of commercial properties.
