Daniel D. Martinez, Attorney
A graduate of Yale University and Cardozo School of Law in New York City, Dan knows that life is “different” outside of the Valley.

Dan holds a Certificate in Dispute Resolution and is a champion of alternative dispute resolution processes like mediation that save clients time, money, and privacy.
