Practicing criminal defense in the Los Angeles, Orange County, and Inland Empire areas, I represent and defend many good people every single day who are facing criminal charges. Why? Because I know what it is like to be falsely accused. I know what it’s like to be stereotyped and harassed by the police.

Growing up in Southern California, and spending the majority of my time at the beach, I was frequently contacted by the police. Whether I was pulled over in my car, or approached on the boardwalk in San Diego, police officers seemed to want to stop and ask me questions, fishing for evidence of criminal activity. Fortunately for me, nothing ever became of those contacts. However, it did leave me with a lasting impression of police officers, the amount of power they have over us, and how I felt when confronted by them.

I attended Loyola Law School in Los Angeles and was fortunate to receive a full tuition scholarship. Courses involving criminal procedure, evidence, and constitutional rights immediately appealed to me. I finished up law school, passed the bar in 1999, and began my career as a criminal defense and DUI attorney in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

Hire attorneys who know the Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange County and Los Angeles County courts to get you results.

Attorneys at the Law Offices of Ty Martinez are dedicated to the defense of our clients. People often find themselves in unfamiliar territory when facing criminal charges, and quite frankly it can be terrifying. A person not only faces jail or prison, but also an unfamiliar system that unfortunately treats an accused as if already found guilty. This is where having experienced criminal and DUI defense attorneys makes a difference. We will explain the criminal process, possible issues and defenses, and will fight to protect the rights and dignity of our clients.

Whether your case involves a misdemeanor DUI, or violent strike felony, our attorneys will aggressively attack the prosecution's case in order to achieve the best possible results. Positive results come from demonstrating to the prosecutors the potential flaws in their cases. This is achieved by diligently handling your case; thoroughly reviewing your police report; contacting important witnesses; obtaining copies of video and audio statements/ and or surveillance tapes; researching case law that supports your position; and contacting the District Attorney's Office to discuss charges being dropped or reduced. Ultimately, positive results come from hard work.

It is a privilege to be able to help people when they need help most. Our goal is to get you the results you desire. Furthermore, honesty and integrity are the pillars of our practice. I will never tell a potential client what he or she wants to hear in order to get his or her business. If you want an honest and fair evaluation of your case, and aggressive representation for a reasonable fee, then call our office. Our attorneys will fight for the justice you deserve.

I emigrated to the United States in the early nineties from Scotland. The law has always appealed to me, and after receiving my B.A. in English from the University of California Riverside in 2000, I decided that law school would allow me the ability to apply my writing skills to a challenging profession.

In 2004 I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Western State University, College of Law and became licensed to practice. Criminal law always appealed to me,  and l soon realized I was more suited to defending the Constitution rights of people accused of crime.

As a former attorney for the Public Defender’s Office, I have handled all types of misdemeanor and felony cases at all stages of the criminal process. My knowledge and expertise as a former indigent defense attorney benefits my clients because I am familiar with the intimate workings of the system, and many of the professionals who work in the system throughout Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties. I know how a case needs to be investigated to present an effective defense, I am skilled in handling multiple pending cases, and I am not intimidated by Judges or District Attorneys, or the "threat" of trial. During my career as a criminal defense and DUI lawyer in Riverside, CA, I have been gratified by the results I have achieved for my clients. For me, there is no better feeling than knowing I have made a real and monumental difference in a person's life by getting criminal charges reduced, dismissed, or a not guilty verdict at trial.
