Reynold Martinez was born in Oakland, California, in 1971. He focuses his practice on mass and toxic tort litigation including talc and asbestos. He is a skilled trial attorney with more than 25 years of experience handling cases from origination to resolution, and has significant experience developing defense strategies, preparing and arguing dispositive motions, developing case information, negotiating settlements, and representing clients in trial. Reynold has also conducted hundreds of depositions, including successfully cross-examining a variety of experts on highly technical opinions.

Prior to arriving at Cosmich Simmons & Brown, Reynold managed toxic tort (asbestos and talc) personal injury, professional liability, construction defect, landlord-tenant, environmental, and premises liability matters on behalf of a variety of different clients, including Fortune 100 companies. He litigated matters in both federal and state courts from intake to resolution, including trial practice and appeals before the California Courts of Appeal. Reynold was also admitted to practice before the US Supreme Court on motion of his father, a prominent San Francisco trial attorney, contemporaneously with admission of his two attorney brothers.

Outside of the office Reynold is an avid skier, a bicycling enthusiast, and struggles to keep up with current trends in music (to keep up with his two teenage kids). As often as he can, he enjoys an evening out with his wife.
