MARTIN N. BUCHANAN IS A CALIFORNIA LAWYER SPECIALIZING IN APPEALS
Since graduating from Harvard Law School in 1986, Martin Buchanan has devoted nearly all of his professional career to litigating appeals in state and federal courts. Martin’s mission is to provide top quality legal representation to clients in the appellate courts.
In response to a writ petition filed by Martin and an alternative writ of mandate issued by the Court of Appeal, the Superior Court of Alameda County has reversed its own prior ruling compelling Martin's client to arbitrate a personal injury matter.
The Court of Appeal has affirmed a $1.6 million elder abuse judgment in favor of Martin's clients for the wrongful death of their mother caused by the reckless neglect of a skilled nursing facility.
