Since graduating from the University of Illinois College of law with a Juris Doctor degree in 1969 Andy Martin has been one of America's most respected--and feared--public interest advocates. He has relentlessly fought against political and public corruption across the United States. He has helped expose corruption in America's federal and state courts.

In 2003, Andy was asked to help a U. S. Marine family that had been abused by a local Pennsylvania judge. Acting with special leave of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Andy won a landmark victory under the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act of 1940 (now recodified as the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act), see B. O. B., Father, Petitioner, v. J. B. K., Mother, Respondent, No. 48 MM 2003 (Pennsylvania Supreme Court, March 31, 2003). Andy continued to assist this family in judicial proceedings in Pennsylvania until they were able to obtain local legal counsel.

As Andy was increasingly called on nationally by military lawyers and private attorneys facing similar problems he created First Responders for Military Families and Children to assist family members who were being abused while a family member was on active duty.

Andy was one of the first investigative analysts/columnists to enter Baghdad after the fall of Saddam Hussein, and his research and reporting from Iraq is internationally recognized and respected. Andy established the first Baghdad Bureau for an Internet newspaper and continues to serve as independent Baghdad Bureau Chief, Chief National and Foreign Correspondent and independent Contrarian Columnist for Out2.com. Andy has 35 years of experience in the Middle East, and almost 40 years of public interest activity, including government and overseas experience.

Andy Martin is truly one of America's most highly respected, admired and loved public interest lawyers.

He says: "As an 18 year-old, I took the oath to support and defend the United States Constitution.
I have lived my life serving that honorable duty."
