“I had the opportunity to work with and review Ed’s work in a large securities fraud case. The case involved over 600 defrauded investors and total losses of more than $35,000,000. Ed was responsible for analyzing the financial records and investigating the persons responsible for causing the losses. Ed constructed a detailed accounting of all the financial records that enabled us to do an investor by investor analysis of total losses as well as identify investors that received preferential treatment. Additionally, Ed did an excellent job interviewing witnesses, inside and outside the scheme. He is a pleasure to work with in that he always has a positive attitude and you can rely upon him to be very thorough and professional in completing every task that is assigned him.”

“I have known Ed for about 25 years and had the privilege to work closely with him, when I was a federal prosecutor and Ed was a Special Agent with the Internal Revenue Service. During my sixteen-year career as a federal prosecutor, I had the opportunity to work with Special Agents from almost all of the Federal Agencies and throughout many different parts of the country and I can tell you that Ed was one of the best of the very best. His investigations are thorough and complete. His reputation for honesty and integrity is excellent. He is an extremely hard worker and also is a great witness at the time of trial. I would highly recommend him to my fellow attorneys and clients for investigative services.”

Jack O’Donnell, Attorney At Law
Gray & Becker PC

“Martin was in charge of the massive evidence and witness lists — the natural one for the job, as he had an unusual ability to stay focused on the big picture and yet keep scrupulous track of the smallest detail. This could be seen in his interviews alone — he had to remember what a skittish witness was saying without taking notes, establish rapport, steer the interview where it needed to go, remember what to ask, evaluate the answers and check them mentally against other tiny details, decide what to not ask, time questions effectively, be mindful of the person’s rights and what was legal, take cues from what was happening around him, know what might be evidence and pursue it — and then coordinate all the information from documents and informants with the prosecutor, the FBI, the Dallas detectives, his bosses, and the rules of evidence.”

Ann Seaman, Author

“After a quarter century as an investigative journalist, I’ve worked with the good, the bad and the very ugly. Without equivocation, I can say that I’ve never come across an investigator who can match Ed Martin’s skills. He’s world class and he can do it all. As his Cajun brethren might say – You ain’t gonna find a better houn’ dawg.”
