“Marty has been at Armstrong Teasdale for more than 15 years, and her work in immigration has been both trailblazing and challenging in today’s legal landscape,” said John Beulick, managing partner at Armstrong Teasdale. “Her leadership and dedication in the field, as a woman in the legal profession and in the community are certainly recognized. Marty is very deserving of this honor, and we’re thankful to have a lawyer of her talent at the firm.”
