He graduated from the University of Colorado in 1986, where he was a member of Sigma Chi. He attained a law degree from the University of Denver and entered into the practice of law in 1990 as a litigator specializing in criminal defense. In recent years he was a partner in Martin & Martin P.C. with his father E. Gregory Martin.

Brent enjoyed outdoor sports, especially ski-mountaineering and downhill skiing in the Rockies. He also liked surfing, hiking and climbing. He was a long-time member of the Denver Club, where he served on the Board of Directors and was an avid squash player. He was also active in the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association.

He met his future wife Jennifer Cooper while standing in line the first day of school to register for classes as freshmen at CU Boulder! Jennifer and Brent were married March 17, 1990 in Pasadena, California, where her parents resided. They established their first home in Denver, moving to Castle Pines Village in August 2005.
