A graduate of the University of Maine School of Law, Martha was admitted to the Maine Bar in 1981 and has been a practicing attorney ever since. In 1986 she began her work in the area of elder law at the Presque Isle office of Legal Services for the Elderly, which provided free legal advice on a full range of matters that affect seniors including issues relating public benefits such as MaineCare and Social Security, powers of attorney, consumer matters, physical and financial abuse, guardianship defense, and others.

In October 2018 she moved the office to The Aroostook Centre Mall where it is now located. Martha transitioned to "of counsel" status in January 2021.
