Nuestra Experiencia le Ayudará a Ganar su Caso.


For more than two decades, the lawyers at  Martin & Colin, P.C. have been fighting for victim’s rights through the expansion of existing laws and the establishment of new laws in many areas of life.


One of our partners, William Martin, has had two legal victories featured on the front page of the New York Law Journal, in banner headline, above-the-fold news articles.


We have succeeded in expanding the federal Pregnancy Discrimination Act to also protect women who are not pregnant, and the expansion of federal Title IX to protect college students from sexual harassment in the classroom. Among other successes, our attorneys won a major victory for college students that was publicized worldwide by major media outlets including ABC News, the New York Daily News, the New York Post and the Dallas Morning News; by specialty journals such as the Chronicle of Higher Education; and by local newspapers from the Journal of Lawrence, Kansas all the way to the Independent (Irish Edition) and the Tribune of Chandigarh, India.
