Martha became Director of Liberty in May 2016 from Doughty Street Chambers, where as a barrister she specialised in defending access to justice and the rights of women, children and disabled people.
She has acted for bereaved families seeking answers after loved ones died in state care, represented victims of rape, domestic violence and trafficking who were failed by the police, brought claims on behalf of prisoners and immigration detainees who had been mistreated in custody and challenged attempts to curb press freedom, privacy and protest rights. She has represented organisations such as the Howard League for Penal Reform, Mind, Medical Justice, and Just for Kids Law, working at all levels including the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights. At the Public Law Project she worked to challenge some of the worst effects of the legal aid cuts.
At Liberty, Martha is a clear voice raising the many issues of EU and British citizen rights and protections in the confusing context of Brexit.
