About me

Ray Martin has represented some of Colorado's largest employers in labor and employment litigation in the federal and state courts in this region for more than thirty years.

In 2010, Chambers USA, a highly-respected lawyer ranking directory, selected Ray as one of the top five employment lawyers in Colorado and described him as "highly regarded in the state as 'an extremely knowledgeable employment practitioner with a booming practice.'"  In its 2010 edition, the International Who's Who of Business Lawyers included Ray as one of only five Colorado lawyers in its management labor and employment listing.  Ray has also been recognized by the Denver Business Journal as one of the top three employment lawyers in Colorado based on voting by practicing attorneys in the state.
