Rodney D. Martin Appointed Co-Chair to State Bar of Michigan Committee

Rodney D. Martin, the Diversity Partner with the law firm Warner Norcross & Judd LLP, has been appointed co-chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee of the State Bar of Michigan.

Martin will serve a one-year term as co-chair of the 17-member committee, which advises the leadership of the State Bar on implementing the Pledge to Achieve Diversity and Inclusion. In July 2010, the State Bar adopted the pledge and asked law firms, bar associations, law schools, private companies and other organizations to join as signatories. To date, nearly 140 law firms and scores of other organizations and companies have pledged to work cooperatively together to achieve diversity in the “education, hiring, retention and promotion of Michigan’s attorneys.”

Martin serves on the Inclusion Advisory Council of the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce and onthe advisory board of BL2END. He serves as facilitator for the Managing Partners Diversity Collaborative, which is an initiative of the Grand Rapids Bar Association, or GRBA. GRBA gave Martin its 2012 President’s Award in recognition of his special contributions in service to the board of trustees, executive committee and executive director.

He concentrates his practice on financial institutions, with an emphasis on bank regulatory issues, fair lending, financial privacy and related matters.  He chairs the Financial Services Practice Group.
