Ronald McDonald House-Dallas

THE LAW OFFICE OF DAN E. MARTENS is focused on representing individuals and small to medium sized businesses in business transactions and litigation about business and investment related interests. We do estate planning, business succession planning and asset protection planning, form business entities, and deliver advice about property interests and the sale or purchase of assets. We do commercial litigation, probate litigation, and general civil litigation, but not litigation involving bankruptcy, personal injuries, domestic relations or criminal defense matters. We refer those matters to competent lawyers we know and trust. We do not promote any particular product, nor do we deliver investment advice; the only thing we have to sell is our time, expertise and experience regarding the legal issues presented. Our mission is to render legal advice about our clients’ problems in the most efficient manner possible.

No lawyer within the firm is accredited in any area by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
