Martha is an accomplished trial attorney committed to success on behalf of her clients. An ardent supporter of the civil jury system, Martha has spent the bulk of her professional career representing clients before juries. At last count, Martha had tried more than 150 civil jury trial cases to verdict. Over the years, Martha has handled a wide variety of complex products liability cases arising from aviation, agricultural and workplace accidents, as well as cases involving medical devices.

In addition to handling jury trials, Martha has decades of experience handling non-jury and administrative matters.
