  • Kimberly Gayle Miller

    I have known Marta for eight years. I worked closely with her in her litigation practice and saw first-hand her intellect, initiative, and collaborative attitude towards work and her community. Marta always represents her clients diligently. She is a gifted attorney and an exceptional leader in the legal community. She has been recognized by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Minnesota, by Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal for her diversity efforts, and as an “Up and Coming Attorney” and “Rising Star” in the legal community. She has continuously taken on leadership opportunities in her firm and the local legal community and has been asked to teach and speak in numerous forums due to her experience and presence. I highly endorse her.
