The law firm of Miller Canfield announces that Ronald E. Hodess, a principal and leader of the Real Estate Group for the firm, has been named one of Michigan Lawyers Weekly’s “Leaders in the Law” for 2013. This distinct honor was awarded to only 25 Michigan lawyers, not only for professional success, but also for striking a balance that includes giving back to the profession.
“I feel honored by the award, especially considering the high caliber of talent that have received this award both this year and in past years,” said Hodess.
Hodess is a leader in the real estate field. He is particularly skilled in structuring large real estate and construction projects. His extensive track record includes representing commercial and corporate clients on numerous real estate, construction and economic development incentive projects throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. He is recognized by Chambers USA as one of the country’s finest real estate attorneys, and has been given similar honors by Best Lawyers, Michigan Super Lawyers and DBusiness Magazine.
In addition, Hodess was the lead advocate in the decision by Miller Canfield to voluntarily add an insurance benefit for lawyers and staff raising children with autism. Hodess is a member of the board of directors of the Autism Alliance of Michigan, which advocated for the passage of the legislation in Michigan in 2012.  He is also on the Executive Board of directors of the Friendship Circle and active with the Autism Society of America, Oakland County Chapter.
Hodess earned his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center in 1985. He earned his B.B.A. from the University of Michigan.
