Born in Lima, Peru in 1974, R. Martin Saenz’s interest in law can be traced back to his childhood in Peru. His father was a judge and a practicing attorney in Peru before retiring in the United States. Martin followed in his father’s footsteps and is currently domiciled in South Florida, where he is the managing partner of Saenz & Anderson.

He graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1998 with a Bachelor of Arts degree and was awarded with the Outstanding Senior in Political Science award.
