Employee of the Manitou & Pike’s Peak Cog Railway
My railway injury had some unique circumstances that raised some interesting legal questions. Martin used his depth of knowledge and experience to create a case that, in my opinion, overwhelmed the railroad with facts they could not ignore and would have great difficulty defending. Any advantage the railroad thought they had over me was negated by Martin’s thorough presentation. I’m convinced that his work produced a favorable outcome for me and I’m very grateful for his involvement.

To Whom It May Concern,
This letter is to serve as a formal letter of recommendation for attorney Martin Jackson. After becoming injured on a railroad crossing due to poor repair of the track, I found myself in need of a lawyer. While I was not fortunate enough to find my way directly to Mr. Jackson, my lawyer sought his expertise and his involvement in my case made all of the difference.
His specific knowledge of the industry was impressive. He could cite all relevant railroad law from memory and could back it up with relevant cases. Beyond that, he also had a positive working relationships and the obvious respect of the representatives from the railroad company with whom I was facing. This allowed for the best possible outcome for my case both in terms of time to get it settled and the eventual monetary settlement.
Most importantly, Mr. Jackson made time for me and attended to my emotional well-being. Mr. Jackson always immediately emailed me back with an answer to my questions and sent words of encouragement. I had not really thought about lawyers in terms of needing a good bedside manner, but it is an emotional time in your life, and I now realize it is critical. Mr. Jackson obviously cares about his clients, and that made all of the difference to me.
I would recommend attorney Martin Jackson without hesitation.

Simply put, the smartest move you will make is to retain Marty to work on your behalf. If you have been injured working for the railroad, do not try work with them on your own. I was injured while working and tried to follow the railroad direction for my treatment for a few months, it was confusing and I didn’t know who to trust. When I came to realize ] was permanently injured, I was grateful that a co-worker referred me to Marty. He knows the laws inside-and-out that govern how an injured railroad worker is to be treated. Over the years, Marty has built-up working relationships with the people within the railroad industry so he can get questions answered quickly and he is not ignored by them. However, most importantly, when he needs to go to battle on your behalf, he is not afraid to do so. The railroads know Marty’s reputation as an excellent attorney that he is not going to let them bully his clients. I can’t imagine how much worse off my family and I would be if I had not hired Marty, the railroad would have eaten me alive. Marty is compassionate and always available. Both my wife and I recommend Marty one thousand percent to anybody needing help.
Union Pacific Carman, Nebraska
I am a former Union Pacific employee. I was a Carman who was hurt at work and could no longer work at my job in North Platte, Nebraska. I found Martin Jackson to represent me and he did an incredible job on my case without even having to go to trial. After that case was over, I got a job driving a cattle truck and was hurt very badly when it turned over. Even though he normally does not do this kind of case, he won that one too.
Marty is a good guy to work with and is very knowledgeable and honest. I definitely would recommend him to anyone with a railroad case or anything else where they need to talk to a lawyer.
George Davis UPRR, Conductor

"My wife and I are so very grateful to Martin Jackson and his wonderful team for the absolutely superb job he did for my case against UPRR. I was injured due to defective equipment on a railcar, it took three surgeries and numerous months of physical therapy on my wrist to finally determine I couldn't work as a Conductor ever again. My first attorney didn't work out due to lack of communication, slow activity and overall poor performance. Marty was on the ball from the very first day to the end. As a matter of fact , he won a summary judgement in my case that will help other railroad employees in the future. He consistently kept us informed, was always available to talk to and was there to calm me down and keep me focused. Because of his expertise, knowledge, attention to detail and professionalism I firmly believe we received substantially more in our settlement. The railroads have smart attorneys and deep pockets on their side, you need a smarter attorney working for you. You need Martin Jackson."

I served on the jury for the recent trial involving BNSF…and intended to write on one subject, your righteously indignant elegant taking down of one [Railroad Doctor], a take down I can only describe as awesome; surprisingly, the little sorry example of a 'doctor'…at the end, got it. I doubt it affects his attitude about himself in the long run, that day it did.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to Mr. Martin Jackson for his assistance in handling my case. As no injury is ever easy to deal with, he handled mine with such professionalism that I did not have to concern myself with matters other than my recuperation. I encourage anyone who becomes injured to contact this gentleman as he is extremely knowledgeable handling railroad injuries.
Robert C. Day, LC/C -Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad
| Denver, CO
Dawn and I would like to thank you for the great job you did on my case. I never thought I would need a lawyer or that I would be injured severely enough that I could not do my job as a conductor after 28 years. It's nice knowing you have a lawyer and staff that are there for you. I felt my case was handled in a very special and professional manner at all times. My family and I thank you and your staff sincerely for all your help.
Bill Cruz - Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad - Conductor
| Denver, CO
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank my lawyer, Martin E. Jackson of Conifer, CO, for all of his firm's help and support during a very difficult time. I injured my shoulder in 2003 while applying hand brakes to a train. I sought out the advice of FELA firms in Denver, CO and Minneapolis, MN and was told I had no case because I could not prove the railroad was at fault. I talked to attorney Martin E. Jackson and found out I did have a case worth pursuing. Mr. Jackson handled my case to a very successful conclusion. He proved that the Railroad had violated the Boiler Inspection Act, which contributed to my injuries. None of the other attorneys even realized that there had been such a violation by the railroad. This added a substantial amount of money to my settlement. I encourage any railroad worker who is injured and needs the help of an experienced FELA lawyer to call Mr. Jackson. Mr. Jackson isn't afraid to fight the railroad on difficult cases."
