How can we help you?


    Here’s what our happy clients had to say about our services:

    Amazing! Thank you. On behalf of E. and myself, we just want to say all of your communication and thoroughness have been amazing! It’s made this process easy and stress free!


    I would recommend Martin to anyone who is in search of a reliable, trustworthy, respected lawyer. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Mr. Screech. I will forever be grateful to him and his services.


    He really went to bat for me. He counseled me against taking a more expensive approach than I would have done otherwise, which meant that his fees were not only reasonable but also more modest than other lawyers would have charged. Martin always kept me informed of my options and the associated costs at each step.


    Martin Screech and his assistant, Sheryl Johnson of Stevenson, Luchies and Legh provide upstanding legal services and knowledgeable advice with a caring touch. Martin is very professional and approachable. Sheryl is very thorough and detail oriented. They both have gone above and beyond in assisting me through my family matter. I highly recommend this law firm.
