His practice also focuses on financial services litigation. He is a 2018 South Florida Legal Guide Top Attorney-Corporate and Business, a 2018 Super Lawyer, and a member of the International Association of Defense Counsel (by invitation only) and the Defense Research Institute. Martinez is admitted to practice in Florida, the District of Columbia, the U.S. District Court for the Southern and Middle Districts of Florida, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Judicial Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.
