Edward Martinovich is a talented trial lawyer with a strong track record for helping clients avoid risk, reduce costs, and achieve favorable results in construction, environmental, product liability, and toxic tort matters. Ed has specialized experience expertise in the automotive, construction, and industrial sectors. He is also skilled in handling personal injury and compensation claims pursuant to the Federal Employer's Liability Act, and he successfully defended a leading national railroad company in a related matter.
Ed’s talent for uncovering alternative, superseding causes for alleged injuries has empowered him to obtain pre-trial dismissals and favorable outcomes for his clients; and his motions, discovery, and other pre-trial procedures have often culminated in outright or partial dismissals of claims. Ed is skilled in all phases of trial, including arguing evidentiary issues, jury selection, cross-examination, and post-verdict motion work to recover clients' costs and legal fees.
In May 2001 Ed obtained his J.D. from the City University of New York School of Law, where he was the recipient of a Judge Bruce Wright Memorial Fellowship, a New York University Student Senate Scholarship, and a Bishop Mugavaro Catholic Lawyers Guild Scholarship. As an undergraduate he double majored in criminal justice and political science at the State University of New York at Albany, where he earned a spot on the Dean’s List of Distinguished Students in 1994, 1995, and 1996; and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1997.
Ed is licensed to practice law in California and New York.
