The Law Offices of Thomas A. Martin represents individuals
facing serious felony charges in both state and federal trial
and appellate courts. We represent people facing felony
charges from drugs to murder, and have developed an
emphasis on sex crimes (both adult and child offenses).
In our commercial litigation practice, we represent small
business owners facing "bet the business" litigation
prospects if the opposing side wins.
With our family law practice, we cherish the opportunity to
represent parents, especially fathers, who need a divorce
and want to keep or get custody of their kids.
Texas is a "no fault" state for divorce. The court may grant a divorce without regard to
fault if the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of
personalities that destroys the legitimate ends of the marital relationship and prevents
any reasonable expectation of reconciliation. The court may not grant a divorce before
the 60th day after the date the divorce suit was filed. The court may grant a divorce in
favor or one spouse if the other spouse: is guilty of cruel treatment toward the
complaining spouse; has committed adultery; has been convicted of a felony and
imprisoned for at least one year without pardon; abandoned the complaining spouse and
been away for at least one year; has lived apart without cohabitation for at least three
years; and, been confined in a mental hospital for three years and the hospitalized
spouse's mental disorder is of such a degree that adjustment is unlikely and, if
adjustment occurs, a relapse is probable.
