Mark A. Martini Elected President of the Allegheny County Bar Association
Robb Leonard Mulvihill is pleased to announce that Mark A. Martini, Partner, was elected President of the Allegheny County Bar Association (ACBA). Mr. Martini was installed as the 129th President of this 6,000-plus member organization on June 19, 2015 and will begin his term on July 1, 2015. Mr. Martini will be one of the youngest to ever serve as President of the ACBA. Founding member of Robb Leonard Mulvihill, John A. Robb, also served as President of the Association in 1960.
Mr. Martini has been actively involved in the ACBA, and its charitable arm, the Allegheny County Bar Foundation, for many years. He was the youngest chair ever of the ACBA’s Young Lawyers Division, chaired the 50th Anniversary of the ACBA Bench Bar Conference, served as Treasurer, served on the ACBA Civil Litigation Section Council, was Chair of the award-winning 2008-2009 Bar Leadership Initiative, and chaired the ad hoc subcommittee that crafted the Bar Association’s mission statement. Currently, he sits on the ACBA Finance Committee and invitation-only ACBA Civil Rules Committee.
In 2009, Mr. Martini also became the first young lawyer to be elected to the ACBA Board of Governors. That same year, Mr. Martini founded the Allegheny County Bar Foundation’s Young Lawyers Fellows Program which recognizes young lawyers who have shown a commitment to outstanding professionalism, pro bono activities and community service. A few years later, Mr. Martini was named the Outstanding Young Lawyer in the County -- a distinction given to just one lawyer per year who exemplifies outstanding leadership and distinguished service to the legal profession and community at large. Even while devoting so much time to the ACBA, Mr. Martini has thrived in his practice of law having been selected as a "Lawyer on the Fast Track" by the daily law journal, The Legal Intelligencer, in 2011, a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer ‘Rising Star’ for the years 2005 through 2012, and a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer in 2013 through 2015.
Looking forward into the future, Mr. Martini is hopeful that under his direction the ACBA will continue to provide services that will give back to the community and enhance the profession in the process.
