Summary Bio

Steve Martini, '74, is one of America's favorite contemporary novelists. He worked as a newspaper reporter in Los Angeles and as a correspondent at the California State Capitol in Sacramento, specializing in legal issues, before earning his law degree. In 1974, he entered private law practice in California where he appeared in both state and federal courts. During his law career he worked as a legislative representative for the State Bar of California, served as special counsel to the California Victims of Violent Crimes Program, and was an administrative law judge and supervising hearing officer. In 1984, Martini turned his talents to fiction. Compelling Evidence, the novel that introduced his protagonist attorney Paul Madriani, was published by Putnam in 1992. A national bestseller, that novel earned Martini a critical and popular following. The now-Washington state resident continues to crank out bestsellers.
