HNBA Commends the Confirmation of William Martinez to the United States District Court for the District of Colorado

WASHINGTON, DC – The Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) applauds the Senate confirmation of William “Bill” Martinez as Judge to the United States District Court for the District of Colorado.

Diana S. Sen, HNBA National President, noted that “the HNBA supported Mr. Martinez’s nomination because not only is he an asset to the bench, bar and diverse communities in Colorado, but also because he is fair, has great character and remarkable integrity. The HNBA is excited that Mr. Martinez will serve as the next jurist for the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado.”

After graduating from the University of Chicago Law School, Mr. Martinez emerged as a leader in the Denver legal community.  First, he practiced at Pendleton & Sabian and then moved to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as a Regional Attorney.  At present, he is a named-partner at the highly-regarded law firm of McNamara & Martinez.

Mr. Martinez has also served as an adjunct professor at the University Of Denver College Of Law and has mentored students and attorneys throughout his career.  Finally, his public service also includes appointment to the Office of Presiding Disciplinary Judge, an appointment by the Colorado Supreme Court, and membership on the United States District Court’s Committee on Conduct.
