Attorney Steven E. Martin

Attorney Steven E. Martin

Before joining Powers Chapman, Mr. Martin was employed by the UAW-GM-Ford Legal Services Plan. There he was a litigation specialist practicing primarily consumer litigation in Oakland County. His other main role was to represent union members and their families in filing bankruptcies in Federal Court in Detroit, Michigan. His focus was seeking relief under Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

In June of 1999, Mr. Martin followed former colleague Craig Tarpinian to the growing staff of Powers Chapman. His current areas of expertise include insurance, consumer litigation, collections, traffic law and bankruptcy. Since joining Powers Chapman, Mr. Martin's primary practice continues to be bankruptcy law, counseling hundreds of debtors and creditors in all areas of finance discharge under the Bankruptcy Code. The state of the law has changed significantly after the 2005 changes to the U.S. Bankruptcy Code under the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act, which requires additional -means- testing for all cases as well as mandatory paperless filing. Mr. Martin looks forward to continuing to build his successful bankruptcy practice in the Metro Detroit area and beyond.
