Attorney Michael A. Rataj

Since 1989 I have dedicated my practice to protecting the rights of individuals who have been arrested and charged with crimes in state and federal courts. My law practice is exclusively dedicated to criminal defense. As someone who has served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps, I approach the defense of those accused of crimes differently. My philosophy is to treat my clients as if they were members of my family.

Within the legal community, I have a reputation for tenacity, integrity and honesty. I have a passion for what I do, and I have demonstrated a dedication to my clients that is second to none. Contact Detroit Criminal Law Attorney Michael A. Rataj, PC
