Ed Martin focuses his practice on assisting clients with personal injury, traffic violations, and criminal charges.
Ed went to undergrad at Monmouth University where he majored in History. Ed was also a member of the Monmouth University Baseball team during his time at school. After Monmouth, Ed moved to Charlotte to pursue a law career. Ed joined the SeiferFlatow team in January of 2017.
Some of Ed’s hobbies are competitive intramural sports with friends and coworkers. Ed competes in the Mecklenburg County Bar Softball and Basketball leagues. In his spare time, he likes to visit local breweries and try as many new restaurants in Charlotte as he can.
Ed’s favorite book is Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. His favorite quote comes from the movie Kingdom of Heaven: ”What man is a man who does not make the world better?”.
Ed is admitted to practice in North Carolina and South Carolina.
Why He Loves Being a Part of SeiferFlatow: “What I have noticed that distinguishes us from other firms is our willingness to take on cases just about anywhere in the state. A lot of firms are afraid or unwilling to commit to taking on neighboring counties. We have developed excellent reputations in other counties; we have made great relationships with other attorneys and DAs. We get a lot of credit when speaking to other attorneys about our ability to reach beyond what others can or are willing to do. We are not just Charlotte attorneys (though we love our city!).”
Brandon Forbes joined the SeiferFlatow team in 2021, and focuses his practice on Civil Litigation. After retiring from military Special Operations in 2010, Brandon attended Campbell University for his undergraduate studies. He then continued his education at Charlotte School of Law, graduating in 2015. Brandon was admitted into the North Carolina Bar in 2016.
During his time in law school, Brandon interned for two Mecklenburg County District Court judges, gaining experience and knowledge of the local court system. Brandon then served the people of Mecklenburg County as a Magistrate before leaving to practice Social Security Law.
Brandon is dedicated to thoroughly understanding his client’s experience and utilizing his legal knowledge to extract critical information in order to provide them with the best legal representation possible. His expertise and calm demeanor helps clients to feel more relaxed and confident during legal proceedings, secure in the knowledge that they are in good hands.
In his free time, Brandon enjoys restoring Datsun and Nissan cars, playing board games with friends, and spending time with his family.

Need to Make an Appointment?
Plaques on the wall, published papers, and high-profile cases don't necessarily mean you have the right attorney (though we do have those things). You need someone who is willing to tenaciously fight for YOU and go the distance. At SeiferFlatow, our team becomes your team for the duration of your case and beyond.
We know that clients come to us during stressful times in their lives, often overwhelmed and anxious. We will handle your case with professionalism and attentiveness, while communicating with you every step of the way. We will be honest with you about the likely outcomes and work with you to tackle what's ahead.
Staying current with changes in laws gives us an edge in the courtroom. We work through every scenario and work out a formidable game plan for each likely scenario so we, and you, are prepared. This approach means we will also be realistic with our clients and advise them on what's best for their outcome, not ours.
