Goldberg Segalla is pleased to announce that Raul E. Martinez has joined the firm as a partner in its Rochester office. A seasoned trial and appellate lawyer, Raul brings his 25 years of experience litigating complex personal injury, medical malpractice, product liability, premises liability cases, and others to the firm’s General Liability Practice Group.
Raul’s comprehensive experience and diverse legal background includes working as an Assistant District Attorney in the Bronx County DA’s office in New York City, where he took more than 20 trials to verdict in his felony prosecution practice. He also has in-house counsel experience at an insurance liability carrier, where he defended cases and provided coverage opinions — experience that led him to being named by The Best Lawyers in America as Lawyer of the Year for Insurance Law in 2013.
A founding member of the Latino Bar Association of Rochester, Raul is also a member of the Monroe County Bar Association, the New York State Bar Association, and the New York State Trial Lawyers Association.
