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.
The Court of Appeal has affirmed a judgment of $8.3 million against DePuy for designing a defective hip implant. On appeal, Martin represented the plaintiff who suffered injuries as a result of the implant. With post-judgment interest, the judgment now totals about $12 million.
Super Lawyers Magazine has ranked Martin as the number two lawyer in all of San Diego in its annual Top 10 list. The list recognizes lawyers in all practice areas who received the highest point totals in the Super Lawyers nomination, peer evaluation, and review process. Last year, Martin was ranked as the number three lawyer in San Diego.
The Court of Appeal has affirmed a $20 million judgment in favor of Martin’s client, who successfully sued the gas company for its negligence in causing an explosion that resulted in serious burns and traumatic brain injury.
