Alumni Highlight

Joseph M. MartinWhen Joseph M. Martin ('91) graduated from Pace he was employed as an associate (pending admission to the bar) at the law firm of Jackson, Lewis, Schnitzler and Krupman (later shortened to Jackson Lewis P.C.). The year before, in 1990, as a student, Joe worked as a summer associate at the firm and they were so impressed with him that they offered him a full-time position as an attorney upon graduation. Little did he know, it would turn into a life-long career where he would move up the ranks from Associate to Principal.

During undergraduate school at CUNY, it became clear to Joe that he wanted to be an attorney. "I knew that I wanted a career where I could help others solve their problems. Law was the best path, in my opinion, to making that happen." Shortly after graduating from undergrad, Joe applied to a handful of law schools, ultimately choosing Pace because of its location and positive reputation. "Pace was in the ideal location, you have the court systems right in White Plains, but you are also a train ride away to the City. There was an endless amount of opportunity to pursue a variety of careers at a multitude of companies and firms."
