PEAR SPERLING EGGAN & DANIELS P.C. WELCOMES MARTY BODNAR
The law firm of Pear Sperling Eggan & Daniels P.C. announced today that Marty Bodnar, a former U-M Associate Athletic Director, and former Wolverine basketball player, has agreed to join the firm. Bodnar will concentrate his practice in the areas of estate planning and elder, business and real estate law.
“We are delighted that Marty is joining our firm,” said Managing Partner Ed Pear. “He brings extensive experience from a high profile position that required objectivity and quiet diplomacy while meeting the needs of alumni, donors, students and other stakeholders. That experience combined with his financial planning background and many years spent in private legal practice and as an elected official and prosecutor are credentials you simply cannot manufacture.”
Bodnar returns to the practice of law after working for Exchange Capital as an investment advisor, passing the Certified Financial Planning exam in 2011. His primary areas of focus are estate planning and elder law, business and real estate law. His financial planning background helps him plan estates while understanding his clients’ overall financial picture; his MBA helps him advise businesses with an appreciation for each client’s overall business challenges.
Bodnar practiced law in Ohio for 14 years both in the public sector and private practice. He served as the elected Law Director for the City of Barberton, Ohio and Chief Prosecutor of the Barberton Municipal Court. He maintained a private practice focusing on estate, business and tax planning, probate and trust administration, real estate, bankruptcy, Medicaid Planning and non-profit formation. Prior to his time at Exchange Capital, Bodnar served 12 years as Associate Athletic Director at the University of Michigan, directing ticket sales and marketing of U-M‘s varsity sports programs.
A graduate of the University of Michigan, Bodnar received his bachelor’s degree in economics and was a three-year starter on the basketball team, serving as a co-captain in his junior year. Following graduation from the University of Michigan, Bodnar received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Akron and his Master’s in Business Administration from Eastern Michigan University.
Bodnar resides in Pittsfield Township with his wife Renee of 28 years and has two married children, Rachel and Jacob. He will be based in our Ann Arbor office at 24 Frank Lloyd Wright Drive. He can be reached at 734-665-4441 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
