Our firm history dates back to the late 1940s at the University of Colorado School of Law where Robert Martin and Kenneth Pringle were first introduced. After law school, Mr. Martin returned to Wichita and associated with a group of oil and gas attorneys, while Mr. Pringle joined his father, back in Wichita, in a practice specializing in oil and gas law. Intermittently their paths would cross and when both were appointed to handle a case in Greenwood County, Mr. Martin and Mr. Pringle finally had the opportunity to work together.
On a rainy morning in the spring of 1951, Mr. Martin and Mr. Pringle drove to Eureka, Kansas, to try the case. They hit a slick spot and their car went off the road into a ditch and through a fence. After the case, the drive back to Wichita was slow, due to a bent wheel, and allowed time for some reflection. Mr. Pringle had concerns about the future of his career and his father’s practice. Mr. Martin encouraged them to join his practice – Martin Pringle was born.
