What We Do

Over the last two decades, mlaw has fought to ensure people in the community receive compensation when they have been injured by another person or entity. We are committed to helping families that have lost a loved one through the probate process. With mlaw’s estate planning services in St. Petersburg and surrounding areas, our clients have complete peace of mind knowing their loved ones will be taken care of after their passing.

A commitment to hard work and setting high goals are important to him. As a graduate of the University of Florida College of Law, Joe Martinez earned his Bachelors of Science with Honors in 1996 and a Juris Doctorate in 2000. Joe Martinez has been licensed to practice in all Florida state courts and in the Middle District of Florida for over 20 years. With over a hundred cases tried, Joe Martinez brings extensive experience and knowledge to every case he handles in Asset Protection, Estate Planning, Probate Administration, and Personal Injury Law. “Many people feel overwhelmed and confused by the legal process. I want my clients to know where they stand and what to expect from me and the law, every step of the way.”

Our Areas of Expertise

Estate Planning

We provide you with the best solution for both protecting your assets during your lifetime and distributing them to the people you choose, at the time you wish, while reducing taxes and avoiding probate.


The Probate process can become challenging at times, especially if there are loved ones in the family who are not on good terms. Our focus at maw is to reduce the burden of probate, trust, and estate litigation.

Personal Injury

A Personal Injury lawyer is strongly recommended if you have been injured due to negligence. Injury victims need representation to protect their rights to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Injured in an auto accident, medical malpractice, or product liability? mlaw can help.
