Ms. Martin represents several major property and casualty insurance companies in coverage cases throughout the United States, and she is admitted to practice law in Michigan, New York and New Jersey.

A native New Yorker, Ms. Martin has experience representing insurers in complex coverage disputes involving multi-million dollar construction projects, severe personal injuries, exposures to toxic materials, and matters involving state and local government entities, including the City of New York.

Representative Client Work

  • Successfully represented insurers against claims of additional insured coverage where policy endorsement significantly narrowed the scope of coverage from the standard policy form
  • Obtained summary dismissal of a coverage claim against an insurer, successfully arguing that an insured’s motorized bicycle was an “auto” that was precluded from coverage under the insured’s general liability policy
  • Successfully represented insurers seeking to rescind policies on the basis that the insured provided materially misrepresentative statements on the application for insurance
  • Represented insurers in summary motion practice dealing with alleged wrongful withdrawal of a defense where the insured failed to cooperate with its defense counsel
  • Obtained summary dismissal of a coverage action based on New York Insurance Law 3420’s requirement that a denial of coverage be given as soon as reasonably possible, where an injured claimant alleged not to have received a copy of the disclaimer but the same was properly mailed under applicable law
