Meet Your Team

We Work For Your Success!


Laurie Luxford

Laurie's 25 plus years of solid tax experience has given her the groundwork necessary to confidently lead our team at Martin & Luxford LLC.   She is an Enrolled Agent allowing her the permission to talk to those happy – go – lucky IRS agents on our clients’ behalf.   Our clients know that they can count on her to be with them every step of the way.  She is one of their greatest cheerleaders because their success is her goal. Once she clicks "send" on that last email of the day, you might spot her headed North for a quick trip to the UP!

Mike Martin

Mike is our founder and has practiced since 1980.  He has extensive experience in tax planning and financial advisory. At this stage of this Michigan man’s career he has made the decision to only work remotely from warm locations! Although he doesn’t conduct face to face meetings with clients anymore, he is still very much a part of our Team.  To connect with him you need to catch him before Noon, or technically it’s considered “the next day”!

Janel Brooker

 Janel assists the Team and all of our clients through various day to day administrative tasks from answering your phone calls and emails to making sure you have a delicious cup of coffee ready for your visit with us.  When she hangs up the phone for the day, she just might be planning a tropical vacation!
