Martin was raised in Harney County and has strong ties to the community and the people that live here. In May, 2011 Martin took his act solo and opened an office on Washington Street in downtown Burns. Prior to opening the Burns office, Martin worked as a summer clerk to Chief Justice Paul J. De Muniz at the Oregon Supreme Court. Following his clerkship, Martin worked for approximately one year in Seattle, where he successfully represented low-income clients in tax matters against the Internal Revenue Service. More recently, Martin worked as an associate for the divorce law firm of Stahancyk, Kent & Hook in Bend, Oregon.

Martin attended college at Oregon State University (Go Beavs!), where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science. Martin earned his law degree from the University of South Dakota in 2008, where he graduated among the top of his class. After passing the Oregon bar exam, Martin attended Washington State University School of Law where he earned an advanced law degree in taxation, focusing primarily in the areas of business and estate taxation and tax controversy.

After becoming satisfied that he had achieved the necessary level of experience, Martin returned to Burns to establish a general practice law office to serve the needs of his community.
