Kevin. B. Martin is a highly accomplished attorney who handles all aspects of family law matters. During his 17-year career, he has developed broad experience in many areas of the law, including commercial litigation, securities litigation, accounting fraud, and governmental/regulatory investigations, and brings these valuable perspectives to his family law cases.
Mr. Martin offers his clients a truly multifaceted outlook, especially those with proprietary business interests. Prior to joining Blank Rome, Mr. Martin co-founded Sonoma Risk Insurance Agency, LLC in Los Angeles, where he developed first-of-its-kind and patent-pending insurance product, “Attorney Fees Risk Insurance,” which covers the risk of paying an adversary’s attorneys’ fees in litigation. This innovative product was hailed by the legal community as a “game changer” and legal “safety net.” As the CEO of Sonoma Risk, Mr. Martin raised capital, negotiated countless contracts, and eventually sold Sonoma Risk to a publicly traded insurance company.
His clients also benefit from his experience as a civil litigator and as an enforcement attorney at the Securities Exchange Commission (“SEC”), where he investigated and prosecuted many different types of financial fraud. His financial investigative experience has been tremendously valuable when analyzing complex and multifaceted financial issues that are pertinent to many high-net-worth estates.

He has managed all phases of litigation in both state and federal courts, and understands the serious effects that negative outcomes can have on personal finances, businesses, and professional reputations.
