Vincent Martin

Martin Law

Before creating my own firm, I was lead immigration attorney at one of the 50 largest law firms in Minnesota.

As a business owner and immigrant myself, I sympathize with both the immigrants' personal plights, as well as employer issues in finding qualified workers.

I am sympathetic to my clients' causes and relentless in seeking justice for them. Whether it is a work visa that is wrongly denied, or deportation proceedings wrongly initiated by the government, I want to help.

Personal interests:

I enjoy traveling, but even when I am out of the office, which is very rare, I am always available to my clients, thanks to modern technology. My family is, of course, number one in my life and I think this translates into me being a better lawyer for my clients. It helps me see beyond the law and into the real life effects that the law has on people.
