Casey D. Martin earned her law degree from Santa Clara University School of Law in 2003. She completed her undergraduate work at Occidental College in Los Angeles, where she majored in Public Policy and minored in Spanish Cultural Studies.
Martin spent a semester of college in Washington, D.C., where she interned at the White House. She also studied in Madrid, Spain. Her time in Spain helped develop her Spanish comprehension and has allowed her to offer legal services to Spanish-speaking clients.
After college, Martinâ€™s career in law started in 2003 at Burton, Volkmann, & Schmal in Santa Cruz, where she worked as an Associate in civil litigation and government tort liability. Her next position was with McCormick Barstow in Fresno as an associate specializing in commercial litigation and insurance coverage. In June 2006, she moved to the Fresno County District Attorneyâ€™s Office and worked as a deputy district attorney. While there, she prosecuted a number of felony matters through trial, headed the Truancy Intervention Grant and gave lectures on truancy prevention to law enforcers, school districts, and the public.
Martin belongs to many organizations. Among them are the California DUI Lawyers Association, California Women Lawyers Association, Fresno County Women Lawyerâ€™s Association, Kings County Bar Association and the National Association of Defense Attorneys.
She has been practicing law for a decade plus and has a myriad of different experience that uniquely serves her clients. She practices Criminal Defense, Civil Law, and Family Law, and is one of the few attorneys in the Valley intimately familiar with the Indian Child Welfare Act. Martin also understands what it takes to defend military service members. â€œAs the wife of a Navy Fighter Pilot and the mother of three children, I have a unique perspective on how cases can affect clients lives. I am different than other lawyers because I work hard, get results, and do everything within my power to get you the results that you need.â€
