Relationship Driven. Client-First Focus.


Henry Martin Law is an innovative law firm
changing the way legal services are provided for the better.
With us, you are not a billable hour, you are a valued partner.

You do what you do very well.  

We want to help you with the rest. Here's how.

Ready to start a new chapter?

We are here to help you write it.

Working with small and emerging businesses is what we do. From helping you form a corporate entity during start-up to preparing you for sale in time for a successful and smooth exit and most everything in between, we can help you with your legal and business needs through each phase of the business life cycle.

Let's do this... together!

Our passion is to help our clients start-up and then watch them grow.  We take pride in the fact that our clients don't look at us just as their legal counsel, but as a trusted member of their team.  At Henry Martin Law, the relationship is the priority. We look forward to the opportunity to develop a special relationship with your team.

We can help you assemble
the right team, the first time.

One of the most valuable lessons learned in business is to surround yourself with skilled people in a variety of fields. Henry Martin Law can help you find those skilled people. We regularly act as outside general counsel, not only providing practical advice to our clients in a variety of areas, but also connecting our clients with folks in other fields when necessary.

Big-firm experience,
without the big firm rates.

With years of experience working in large law firms like Miles & Stockbridge and Ober | Kaler (now Baker Donelson), we offer the knowledge, experience and sophisticated counsel of big firm attorneys, at a rate that is often more compatible with small business budgets. Solid legal and business counsel is crucial, but it shouldn't break the bank.
