Jodi is a founding Partner in Martin Law Office LLC and has over 20 years of experience as an attorney.  Prior to 2012, Jodi practiced in the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma area.  Jodi’s career began with serving as an Assistant District Attorney for the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office for six years.  As an Assistant District Attorney, Jodi was assigned to a special victims unit where she focused on cases involving sex crimes, child victims, domestic violence, and homicides.  She left the District Attorney’s office to enter private practice, where she spent the next eight years litigating cases at an Oklahoma City mid-size law firm.  As a Partner at that firm, Jodi supervised a team of attorneys focused on litigating employment and civil rights lawsuits.  During her fifteen years of litigation practice, Jodi has had occasion to try over fifty cases to a jury and a multitude of trials to the Court, as well as multiple oral arguments before both the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals.

In 2012, Jodi relocated to Colorado to pursue a practice focused on her passion, using her legal experience to help her clients strengthen and protect themselves and their families.  In light of her experience, Jodi is skilled in working with clients to resolve disputes outside of the courtroom, but is also prepared to fully litigate matters when needed.  

At Martin Law Office LLC, Jodi has also focused her energy and legal experience on legal matters impacting the LGBT community, their allies, and individuals impacted by HIV.  Jodi also spends time working with local and national organizations in the pursuit of enhancing the lives of the LGBT community in Boulder, in Colorado and across the nation.

Excellent Custody Agreement Lawyer
Jodi helped me create a difficult two-state custody agreement. She was knowledgeable and kept everything moving even when I had a concurrent family emergency. More importantly, she is is kind and her emotional intelligence is off the charts!

Outstanding work on our wills
We've moved frequently and every time we moved to a new state we found a new lawyer to help us update our wills. Jodi was hands down the best we've ever worked with. Took the time needed to make sure we understood both our options and the meaning and implications of the various elements of these legal documents. Pointed out considerations and options we wouldn't have found ourselves. Thorough, patient, and enjoyable to work with.

Jodi Martin review
We were referred to Jodi by our friends. We meet with her to have wills and living wills drawn up. She was very thorough, explained our options and made suggestions on our behalf. She did a great job.

Professional and thorough
Jodi has always made time for my wife and I throughout the will process and made sure that we had a full understanding of everything. We needed some extra guidance since this was the first will for both us. We are very please with Jodi and definitely recommend her!
