George E. Martin III practices employment and workers' compensation litigation, governmental litigation and relations, general civil litigation, and provides human resources training and counselling. The core of his practice consists of representing employers facing legal challenges filed by employees. Specifically, George defends public and private employers facing administrative charges and lawsuits filed by employees alleging discrimination, breach of contract, retaliation, wage and hour violations, and workplace injuries. His broad experience enables him to defend employers facing multiple, diverse claims simultaneously filed by a single employee.
George has substantial experience representing employers against claims for workers' compensation benefits arising out of "catastrophic" injuries that pose significant exposure for employers and their insurers (for example, claims involving toxic exposures, blood borne illnesses, complex regional pain syndrome, and workplace fatalities). George has also successfully represented a number of the state's public corporations, county governments, and municipalities against a variety of unique legal challenges, including First and Fourteenth Amendment lawsuits, taxpayer standing challenges, writs of mandamus, and claims premised upon federal and state statutes. He proactively advises public entities on intergovernmental relations, regulatory compliance, and statutory interpretation.
