The Honorable Gordon A. Martin, Jr.
Associate Justice (ret.), Massachusetts Trial Court
Boston, Massachusetts

The Honorable Gordon A. Martin, Jr., served as an associate justice of the Massachusetts Trial Court for 20 years. In the early 1990s, he headed the Roxbury District Court in Boston, which handled the most drug, gun, and domestic violence cases in the state. Previously, he was a founding partner of the law firm Martin, Morse, Wylie & Kaplan; Commissioner of the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination; Chair of Boston's Coordinating Council on Drug Abuse; Associate Professor at Northeastern University School of Law; Special Assistant to Senator Edward M. Kennedy; First Assistant U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts; and a trial attorney with the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.

Judge Martin chaired the discussion of model legislation concerning the transfer of juveniles to adult court, which was cosponsored by the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (of which he was a trustee) and the National Consortium for Alternatives in Sentencing. He also chaired the Advisory Committee on the Effectiveness of Juvenile Offender Prevention and Treatment Programs sponsored by the National Center for Juvenile Justice. He is Adjunct Professor of Law at New England School of Law and has been a visiting professor at the law schools of Tulane, San Diego, and the University of Mississippi. He coauthored Civil Rights Litigation: Cases and Perspectives in 1995 and has published articles in a number of law reviews and other publications. Judge Martin is a graduate of Roxbury Latin School, Harvard College cum laude, and New York University School of Law, where he was a Root-Tilden Scholar.
