I am an attorney in Minneapolis focusing on contracts, and am currently trying to delve into the construction industry and foreclosure defense work. I’m currently attempting to build a practice that involves equal parts litigation and transactional work, because without variety I quickly wither and die.
I graduated from the University of St. Thomas School of Law in 2007, and subsequently worked in some less-than-desirable contract attorney positions before hanging my own shingle and opening up shop as Martin Legal Services, LLC at the beginning of 2010. Prior to law school, I received my Masters Degree in Philosophy (focusing on moral philosophy) from Boston University.
In addition to my new and exciting work as a contributor to Lawyerist, I am also the progenitor of Pro and Contracts, a blog focusing on contract-related ideas and situations, geared toward the lay-consumer.
I look forward to adding some of my own experiences in starting up my own practice in a down economy, with the hope that it can help Lawyerist’s readers.
