An Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney Driven To Win

Practicing criminal defense law successfully requires a thorough knowledge of the Constitution, case law, rules of procedure and more.

I am Detroit criminal defense attorney Michael A. Rataj. Since establishing my practice, Michael A. Rataj, PC, in 1989, I have been involved in more than 100 criminal trials encompassing a variety of matters. I know the law, the judges, prosecutors and others involved in the criminal justice system.

No other attorney will out-research, out-strategize or out-work me. I’m internally driven to win, and I will not back down from a fight to protect your rights and your freedom.
