Martha A. Medina

Martha is an associate with Nixon Peabody’s Complex Commercial Disputes practice group. She represents individuals and corporations in a wide variety of matters.

What do you focus on?

I represent clients from a diverse range of industries in a variety of commercial litigation matters, including torts, trusts and real estate transactions, and employment discrimination claims in both state and federal court. I also represent clients in various immigration proceedings. I assist in all phases of litigation, with a focus on drafting pleadings and memoranda, and preparing for trial.

Prior Experience

I previously served as a legal intern in the National Security Section at the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and as a judicial intern for Honorable Emmet G. Sullivan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Prior to law school, I worked as a paralegal in the Civil Rights Division at the U.S. Department of Justice.

What do you see on the horizon?

With the increasing sophistication of digitally enabled intelligent products on the market, it is imperative that companies and consumers alike are aware of the risks associated with their private data. Specifically, there is heightened exposure to litigation and increased regulatory enforcement related to privacy, tort, and cybersecurity issues.
