Anthony Martinez

Shook Hardy & Bacon LLP

Anthony Martinez focuses on environmental and toxic tort litigation. His litigation experience has been broad, ranging from the defense of Fortune 500 corporations in nuisance actions to challenging federal regulatory actions in court. Anthony’s work involves many facets of litigation, including:

  • discovery management;
  • depositions;
  • corporate witness preparation;
  • expert witness development in various fields;
  • pre-trial motions and preparation;
  • dispositive motion preparation;
  • appellate practice;
  • dispute resolution proceedings; and
  • trial practice, including examination of witnesses.

Anthony is also committed to pro bono work. He is currently a guardian ad litem and works with Rule 13-certified students at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law to represent children involved in protection order hearings.

Anthony also currently represents clients in guardianship and adoption proceedings. In addition, Anthony has represented parents who have had their parental rights limited by the Children’s Division of Missouri Social Services.

He regularly attends court hearings, negotiates with the Children’s Division, and advises the court to achieve the maximum amount of visitation and eventual unification of the parent and child. Anthony also enjoys helping his community by providing legal counsel to those who lack access.

For example, he assisted in the creation and implementation of a free legal seminar for artists and entrepreneurs who would ordinarily not be able to afford vital legal services.

Representative Matters:

  • Anthony has regularly litigated toxic tort exposure cases involving constituents such as metalworking fluids, formaldehyde, woodworking constituents, asbestos, benzene and sulfur. Currently, Anthony is litigating a case involving alleged exposure to radiation.

  • Through this practice, Anthony has gained knowledge in OSHA regulations as well as NIOSH and ACGIH exposure limits and history. Further, Anthony has developed expert and company witness testimony regarding the sufficiency of the MSDS or SDSs for products supplied or manufactured by clients.
  • For example, Anthony has been part of a trial team that successfully defended a $36.5 million wrongful death and premises liability suit on behalf of a utility company whose power plants had asbestos-insulated pipes dating back to the 1950s.
  • He prepared direct and cross-examination outlines, opening and closing statement outlines, prepared the defense’s sole expert witness and one of two corporate witnesses for trial.
