meet MARTINA

Martina Watson, Esq.

As a small business attorney, I pride myself in assisting you in every step of your entrepreneurial journey.

Story

"I want our entrepreneurs to know that they are valued"

"I started Martina Watson Law because I realized that the small business community overwhelmingly lacked a valuable asset--attorneys. After negotiating and finalizing the nation's first worker-owned cooperative in one of New York's most impoverished communities, I realized how valuable business legal services are to all people and decided that I want to support business owners in achieving financial independence. I set out to build a law practice that would actively work to serve communities so that they can feel empowered to make their own fully informed business and legal decisions. I value client-focused lawyering and want entrepreneurs to know that I will work with them to help them achieve their business, financial, and longevity goals. It is my number one priority to make entrepreneurs feel empowered to make important business and legal decisions that will foster economic independence and lead a sustainable business."

When she is not helping you achieve your business goals, Martina enjoys traveling, spending the with her niece and nephew, and watching documentaries.
