Highly Revered & Recommended

Marty is a lawyer’s lawyer – an unparalleled legal technician with a philosopher’s vision. Marty sees the nuances in the shadows in the edges of the furthest reaches of the law and brings it all back to first principles and fundamental values.

NACDL Past President Martín Sabelli

Some lawyers have been gifted with extraordinary intellects, others prodigious trial skills, and still others a relentless work ethic. Marty has the rare combination of all three, and that is what truly sets him apart within the defense bar.

Robert M. Goldstein

Marty is the go-to lawyer for those with complex legal and trial issues – there is no one better. Most importantly, he is an all-around terrific person.

NACDL Past President Gerald Lefcourt

Whether it was his surgical cross-examination of co-defendant-turned cooperating-witness Joseph Lally or his home run closing argument, the Boston lawyer established that the evidence against Vitale simply was not there.

David Frank, Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly

God forbid I ever have a problem, he’d be my lawyer.
