Dr. Martin Preslmayr LL.M.

lawyer by appointment


„Both my parents were lawyers. My father Karl retired many years ago. My mother Monica raised four children while pursuing her career. I have practiced law for nearly 3 decades. My older children Sophia and Markus are studying law at the University of Vienna and Copenhagen.

preslmayr.legal incorporates the essence of my family heritage, whose legal vocation spans three generations: a pioneering spirit, legal excellence, courage, and an unconventional approach. Add to that the tempo and technical savvy of the “Google generation”.
Dr. Martin Preslmayr
