John R. Martin

John Martin brings a proven, hands-on approach to Pillar+Aught.  One day he’s running a federal jury trial for a national organization, the next he’s at a client site, providing actionable human resource training to managers and their teams. 

John has successfully litigated cases before the state and federal court for companies based in Pennsylvania and across the United States.  John has advised his clients on a myriad of employment law matters including gender, age, disability, and race discrimination, as well as claims alleging harassment, retaliation, and wrongful discharge. 

Well-versed in a wide variety of employment practices, John is able to counsel and train his clients on best practices to address their workplace challenges including: how to properly discipline employees, comply with EEO and FMLA requirements, develop and implement effective workplace policies, and enforce employee non-compete agreements.  He writes and lectures frequently on a variety of topics including social media, wage and hour issues, and sexual harassment. 

John’s diverse talents and interests extend to his broader community as well, where he is an active leader on the board of a regional performing arts center and serves on the board of a local non-profit leadership organization.
