Attorney Martin Pina is a third-year attorney from the Rio Grande Valley. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from St. Mary’s University of San Antonio (’10) and a Juris Doctorate from Texas Tech University School of Law (’14) in Lubbock Texas. During his final year of studies, he participated in the Criminal Defense Clinic as a student attorney representing indigent defendants from Lubbock County.

After graduation, Martin began practicing family law and criminal defense in Hidalgo County with an office Edinburg, Texas in August of 2016. He continued his commitment to providing legal services to the indigent community by regularly accepting court appointments through the Hidalgo County Indigent Defense Program as part of his practice. Many of those court appointments involved representing members of Hidalgo County’s immigrant community.

In June of 2017, Martin joined the Nueces County District Attorney’s Office in Corpus Christi, Texas in an effort to hone his legal skills and become a more well-rounded attorney. He began his tenure there as a misdemeanor prosecutor for County Court at Law No. Four and saw himself quickly promoted to felony prosecutor for the 28th District Court in a little under a year’s time. As a prosecutor, he took numerous cases to trial for both felony and misdemeanor level offenses, which afforded him invaluable experience in the practice of criminal law.

After a little over a year with the Nueces County District Attorney’s Office, Martin decided to transition back into criminal defense, which has always been his first love. He is excited to begin this new chapter where he will apply the skills acquired over the past two years toward the service of Austin and its surrounding area’s immigrant community through effective and zealous legal representation in criminal matters.

On a personal note: As the son of immigrant parents from Valle Hermoso, Tamaulipas, Mexico, Martin very closely identifies with the immigrant community and is passionate about providing legal services for its members who may find themselves facing criminal charges. He looks forward to doing so as the newest member of Garcia & Garcia Attorneys at Law.
