Martin began his career as an industrial hygienist. Working for oil, gas, and support companies, he made recommendations that helped limit the exposure of employees to hazardous, disease-causing materials. Over the years, he saw that there was limited accountability for companies that failed to do this, thereby putting the health of their employees at risk. As an attorney, Martin knew he would be in a position to help. For over 30 years, he’s used his background in industrial hygiene, epidemiology, toxicology, and the environmental sciences to do just that.

 Throughout his practice, Martin has handled a number of cases involving chemicals and other dangerous substances, including asbestos, silica, benzene, pesticides, metals, rare earths, catalysts, and drug compounds. These cases include multi-party litigation in both State and Federal Courts.
