About Martha A. Dean
Martha Dean has actively practiced law in Connecticut for the past 22 years. She is a business owner who has run her own law practice, supervising staff and lawyers, for the past 16 years. Prior to that, Martha worked at Robinson & Cole and the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission. Martha is a graduate of Phillips Academy (Andover), Wellesley College, and the University of Connecticut School of Law, where she was an editor of the Law Review. She is a member of the Connecticut Bar, U.S. District Court (Connecticut), U.S. Court of Appeals (2nd Circuit), and the U.S. Supreme Court.
In 2002, Martha Dean was the Republican nominee for Connecticut Attorney General. In that race, Martha and her message of economic opportunity and fair and just law enforcement inspired a surge of 50,000 new voters in the Attorney General’s race. This surge gave Dean the strongest showing of any Republican who has run against incumbent Richard Blumenthal over his twenty years in office.
Martha’s legal practice is dedicated to helping clients understand and comply with complex regulatory schemes, successfully challenge inappropriate government action, and recoup losses, while furthering their economic and individual rights guaranteed by the Constitution. Clients include industrial, financial, and commercial establishments. She also represents individuals who have serious toxic tort and property damage claims caused by pollutants or pesticides. Martha’s legal cases have established nationwide precedents, and she has fought vigorously for consumers all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Martha is co-founder of the Hartford Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society for Law & Public Policy Studies. The Federalist Society is a national organization of law students, law professors, lawyers and judges who sponsor panel discussions and debates with leading scholars and authorities on important public policy issues. Dean is a lifetime NRA member and a native of Norwich, Vermont.
