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
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."
