Maria M. Martinez Named a 2018 “Up & Coming Lawyer” by Michigan Lawyers Weekly
Bodman PLC is pleased to announce that Maria M. Martinez, a senior associate in the firm’s Detroit office, has been named to Michigan Lawyers Weekly’s 2018 class of “Up & Coming Lawyers."
Lawyers Weekly honored Martinez and the other members of the 2018 class at a luncheon ceremony on December 13 at the Detroit Marriott in Troy. Honorees will be profiled in a special section of the December 18 issue of Michigan Lawyers Weekly.
Each year, the publisher of Michigan Lawyers Weekly selects a small group of attorneys who are in their first ten years of practice to be named “Up & Coming Lawyers.” According to the publication, these individuals “display the ambition, drive, determination and accomplishments that set them apart among their peers.”
A member of Bodman’s Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution and Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Groups, Martinez primarily represents business clients in complex litigation matters. She is experienced in a wide-range of commercial and business disputes, representing banks, insurance and financial service companies, OEMs, Tier-1 automotive suppliers, and telecommunications companies. She has also served as assistant city attorney for the City of Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan, prosecuting criminal misdemeanors and enforcing the city code.
Outside of the office, Martinez is involved in many community and professional organizations. She is a member of the board of advisors and 2019 campaign chair for the Boll Family YMCA, co-chair of the Inforum Downtown Detroit Affinity Group, and a member of ICLE’s Litigation Advisory Board. She is a frequent volunteer with VIP Mentoring and Matrix Human Services in Detroit.
