Providing Forgiveness Scholarship

Marty Martin Bankruptcy Law’s
Providing Forgiveness Scholarship, 2021/2022

Marty Martin has been helping Oklahomans who are in need of debt forgiveness and relief since 2003. He works hard  to help improve peoples’ financial health through bankruptcy and other options an individual or family has when they are in financial trouble that they cannot get themselves out of on their own. 

A key reason that Mr. Martin feels fortunate to do the kind of work he does is because of the positive impact he gets to see that his work brings to his clients and their families. Mr. Martin also feels fortunate to live in a world where there are many other people who work hard to help people in need, to find forgiveness in different ways than what he does to help people to get financial forgiveness.

To this end, the Law Offices of Marty J. Martin have created their 2021/2022 Providing Forgiveness Scholarship for a student who is committed to helping people who are in need of forgiveness. We feel that by helping to fund the education of a student who is committed to helping people in need of forgiveness when they are finished with their degree(s), we will be helping to make this world a better place.
