Skilled Defense For All Types Of Federal Offenses

I am criminal defense attorney Michael A. Rataj. Since 1989, my law practice in Detroit, Michigan, Michael A. Rataj, PC, is exclusively dedicated to criminal defense, with a focus on protecting the rights of individuals who have been arrested and charged with federal offenses.

My Background

Born and raised in Michigan, I am a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps. For my undergraduate studies, I attended both Michigan State University and Wayne State. I obtained my law degree from the Detroit College of Law from which I graduated magna cum laude.

Media Appearances

I have established a well-earned reputation in my community and have been recognized as a legal expert by various media outlets such as Channels 2, 4, and 7, The Detroit News, and Detroit Free Press.

Many will also remember me for my work as part of Detroit’s then-mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s corruption trial in 2013. As co-counsel for Bobby Ferguson, there was a media clip that infiltrated the internet. To some, this demonstrated my aggressive nature when it comes to fighting for my clients.

I have also been interviewed on the CNBC T.V. show American Greed regarding Kilpatrick, as well by Meredith Vieira for an “American Gangsters” episode featuring a Russian mobster.
