"Solving Problems with Integrity, Creativity and Tenacity."

Meet Matt Martin, Pueblo Criminal and Personal Injury Attorney

Attorney Matthew Scott Martin provides a formidable voice for human rights—speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Matt’s clients are people, not governments or giant corporations.  

The very DNA of his law practice consists of commitment, integrity and creativity, fostering a culture of success and producing outstanding, reliable results for his clients while providing excellent customer service.

Background

  • Martin developed his extensive litigation and negotiation skills through 40 years of legal practice in Colorado.
  • Martin commenced his legal career as a Deputy District Attorney for six years in Pueblo, Colorado, where he learned how prosecutors think and act, a tremendous advantage when fighting to protect the rights of his accused clients.
  • As a prosecutor, Matthew Scott Martin realized his passion was speaking up for people and protecting their constitutional rights and civil liberties.
  • Martin entered private practice in January, 1987, focusing his practice in criminal and constitutional defense (felonies, drugs, homicide, sexual assault and DUI), civil rights (Section 1983; Title VII; police brutality; racial, national origin, gender and age discrimination; the First Amendment; and prisoners’ rights), and personal injury (wrongful death, auto accidents,slip and fall, medical malpractice).
  • Matt Martin is committed to being the voice of human rights, speaking up against the government and corporations for those who cannot speak for themselves.
  • Being a bulldog prosecutor trained Martin well to fight for his clients’ rights; he is not afraid to take on the government and governmental employees.
  • Matt is a 1980 graduate of University of Illinois Chicago School of Law and is also a 2019 graduate of The Trial Lawyers College. What is the Trial Lawyers College? As stated on the website, “The Trial Lawyers College is dedicated to training and educating lawyers and judges who are committed to the jury system and to representing and obtaining justice for individuals; the poor, the injured, the forgotten, the voiceless, the defenseless and the damned, and to protecting the rights of such people from corporate and government oppression.” What I found out during the three-week course and since when I took what I learned into the courtroom, is that the Trial Lawyers College represents to me an access to a different paradigm for “trial lawyer.” I am reminded of the time I stood on top of a 14er for the very first time. I can see forever, I said to myself, This is extraordinary. As a Trial Lawyers College graduate, what I see now that I did not see before is that I am not in this alone, I am human (not an unfeeling, emotionless robot), so are jurors and they are my family, not an enemy to be conquered, but people with whom I can entrust my clients’ futures. 
  • My  favorite hobbies are fantasy baseball and working out. Baseball is very hard to play at the pro level (or any level) and it inspires me to keep working hard every day to become as excellent an advocate and trial lawyer for my clients as I can be. I work out on a Peloton bicycle and with weights. Both help me stay healthy so that I can be focused, alert, and energetic when working on behalf of my clients.
