Clay Martin

Co-Founder / Personal Injury Attorney

I am a co-founder of Martin & Helms, P.C., in Huntsville, Alabama. Born and raised in Decatur, Alabama, I obtained my undergraduate degree in finance at the University of Alabama in 1992 and graduated from the University of Alabama School of Law in 1995. While in law school, I was selected to the Bench and Bar Legal Honor Society.

Since 1995, I have concentrated my practice on representing individuals and the families of individuals who have been harmed or injured as a result of the wrongful acts of others. While practicing in both state and federal courts throughout the country, I have litigated cases involving issues of products liability, tractor-trailer and automobile collisions, dangerous roadways, mass torts, fires and explosions, business disputes, as well as defective pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices and household products.

My goal is to represent and fight for my clients with the same level of skill, determination and advocacy that I would want for my family if something happened to me and they needed a lawyer. I am dedicated to achieving the best possible outcome for my clients and, as a result, have won millions of dollars for individuals who have been injured.
