Martha Tansik

Practice Areas: Civil Litigation, Workers Compensation Defense, Medicare Compliance, and Subrogation

Martha Tansik joined Barlow Anderson when the firm opened and became a partner in 2020. Previously, she worked for Burr, Pease, & Kurtz after serving as in-house legal counsel at Liberty Mutual’s Anchorage office. While her primary practice is workers’ compensation defense/subrogation, Martha has experience in campaign finance regulation, health care, master planning, land use, and municipal permitting processes. She also serves as General Counsel for the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Alaska. She holds specialized Medicare Set-Aside Consultant Certified (MSCC) and Certified Medicare Secondary Payer Professional (CMSP) certifications enabling her to advise clients on Medicare compliance. She is a member of the National Alliance of Medicare Set-Aside Planners (NAMSAP).

She loves working collaboratively with her clients, appreciating their expertise and ideas. Martha’s strengths lie in out of the box solutions to difficult and complex claims and situations  and efficient claim resolution. She is fascinated by the intricacies (read: technical issues like fee schedules, Medicare, and complex medical issues) and enjoys using these to whittle away at problems–both large and small.

Martha attended the American University in Washington DC for her undergraduate work in International Studies with a focus on Latin American development. She received her JD from Seattle University. Originally from North Carolina, Martha has lived and worked on three continents and is excited to now call Alaska home along with her family and ferocious Aussie, Neah. Martha sits on the Board of Directors of Anchorage Association of Women Lawyers and of AWAIC, as well as an active member of the Baha’i religious community.
