Martin Rich has been a commissioned Justice of the Peace for The Commonwealth of Massachusetts since 2009, originally appointed by Governor Deval Patrick. He has also achieved success in several professions.
Martin’s first career as a professional photographer started in 1974 in the Boston Area. As both an artist and an entrepreneur, Martin rose to the top of the profession, serving Boston’s Elite, and earning several awards for photographic excellence.
