Tenth Judicial District - District Court Judge
Honorable Alex J. Martinez
Retention Year: 1990
Judicial Performance Commission’s recommendation: Should Be Retained.
Judge Martinez was admitted to the practice of law in 1976. He served with the deputy state public defender system in Denver and Pueblo. In 1983 he was appointed as judge of Pueblo County Court. He presided in County Court until 1988 when he was appointed to the District Court. Martinez presently presides over Division E of the District Court. His caseload includes criminal, civil, domestic, juvenile and mental health cases.
A survey conducted to evaluate the performance of Martinez sought responses from members of law enforcement, courthouse staff, probation and social services departments, attorneys, litigants and members of the community. Some responses to the survey questioned whether Martinez was always free from favoritism in his handling of cases. However, other response praised Martinez for his fair treatment of the issues before him and his courteous treatment of litigants.
