Attorney Martin Garbus’ client list is a who’s who of the world’s foremost artists, politicians, corporations, scientists, and political dissidents.
In a career spanning half a century, he’s represented actors Sean Connery and Al Pacino, authors Tom Brokaw and Nancy Reagan, and even Nobel Prize winners Vaclav Havel and Andrei Sakharov.
Although Garbus holds a diverse practice, he is perhaps most famous—and in some circles, infamous—for his work in First Amendment law.
His career was chronicled in the HBO documentary Shouting Fire: Stories from the Edge of Free Speech and in his memoir Tough Talk: How I Fought for Writers, Comics, Bigots, and the American Way. In 2007, he received PEN International’s First Amendment Award.
