A History of Helping Smaller Businesses Get a Place at the Table

Kenneth Martin served as an officer in the United States Air Force from 1980 to 1987 and earned his Juris Doctor, cum laude, in 1986. As a commissioned officer in the Air Force, he negotiated, awarded, and administered construction contracts and served as a major systems contracting officer. In 1987, Mr. Martin founded The Martin Law Firm, serving the Washington, D.C. area.  His focus quickly turned to assisting primarily small and medium-sized businesses in competing successfully for government contracts and his representation has included highly complex business and governmental legal issues and litigation. Mr. Martin served as attorney of record in an amicus curiae submission to the United States Supreme Court in Adarand Constructors, Inc. v. Pena. He has lectured nationwide and hosted seminars on all aspects of federal and commercial contracting and subcontracting. As a speaker at National Contract Management Association conferences, he appeared as a guest on the National Public Radio. He co-authored “How to File a Monetary Claim Under the Contractors Disputes Act” and “Is This the End of Federal Minority Contracting?”
