Jarrod Martin is a litigator with a focus on restructuring and bankruptcy. He has a nationwide practice and represents bankruptcy trustees, creditors, and corporate and high net-worth debtors. Jarrod provides personalized, efficient service for each client and effectively pursues each client’s strategic goals. Whether you’re a creditor or a debtor, Jarrod is passionate about providing the ability to move beyond the circumstances of the bankruptcy and into new opportunities.
He leads the firm’s bankruptcy practice group, while also maintaining a robust litigation practice in both federal and state court. Jarrod is comfortable in the courtroom, whether it is a routine hearing, a multi-day trial, or anything in between. While his practice involves all types of businesses, he has particular interest and experience in restructuring matters affecting energy companies. This includes representing creditors in some of the largest oil and gas bankruptcies filed in Texas.
Jarrod took a circuitous route to McDowell Hetherington. He is originally from Southern California, but after finishing his undergraduate work at UCLA, he moved to Denmark and landed in Miami for law school. After law school, Jarrod moved to Houston to clerk for The Honorable Jeff Bohm, a bankruptcy judge. He then worked for the Department of Justice in Denver before returning to Houston. Jarrod knows that life is about solid relationships, whether that’s with his clients or his family. He loves to explore the world with his wife and son, whether that means trying a new restaurant in Houston or hiking on the northern coast of Spain. He volunteers with the Houston Symphony Chorus and can regularly be seen singing at Jones Hall.
