R. Jackson Martin

Of Counsel

Jackson has been practicing law since 2010 and has represented a wide range of companies and individuals in complex commercial litigation in state and federal courts throughout the country. Jackson has served as lead counsel, and obtained favorable results, in a variety of cases, including defamation, commercial disputes ranging from breach of contract to statutory business conspiracy, declaratory judgment actions, matters involving defective construction, and numerous matters under the False Claims Act. After prevailing in a nearly two-week jury trial in the Summer of 2022, Jackson was part a team of four attorneys that were named Litigators of the Week by for securing a $61 million verdict against an international pharmaceutical giant under the False Claims Act. While Jackson’s practice is devoted exclusively to litigation, he focuses on finding creative and cost-efficient ways to achieve his client’s goals.
