Martin completed his B.Comm, LLB at the University of Natal in 1989. After serving 2 years of articles at a large legal firm in Durban, he travelled overseas for 7 months. On his return he joined Legal Wise Insurance and was the Durban branch manager for 2 years.
Martin missed the excitement and continual learning associated with practising law. In 1994 he founded Kohler Inc Attorneys which was based in the Perm Building, Anton Lembede Street, Durban. In 2000 Kohler Inc moved from central Durban to Westville, the intention being, to offer a more personalised service to Martin's stable existing clients and perspective new clients.
Martin enjoys interacting with clients and assisting them in overcoming the challenges they face within the ambit of the evolving law. During his 26 years of being an attorney he has gained vast experience and now focuses on the area of Civil Litigation, including claims against the Road Accidant Fund, Family Law, Commercial Litigation, Insurance Law and Personal Injury Claims. Martin also oversees the firm's Estate Department.
Martin is divorced and has two children. When he is not spending time with his children, he enjoys healthy activities like cycling, running, swimming, paddling, hiking and offroad motorbike riding.
