Rockind Law - Trial Lawyers

We are Michigan’s top criminal defense trial law firm, handling many of Michigan’s most prominent cases.

Rockind Law has obtained dismissals and acquittals in a wide variety of cases over our fifteen year history. The Rockind Law team defends adults and juveniles across the state of Michigan against felony and misdemeanor charges in state, federal or juvenile court. We have the experience, resources and track record to take on all types of criminal defense cases.

Our award-winning attorneys are the very best in the business. Early in his career, President and founder Neil Rockind, a University of Michigan undergraduate and Wayne State University Law School graduate, tried cases on behalf of the state of Michigan as an assistant prosecutor, earning the nickname, “The Rockweiler” for his reputation of being a fearless, fierce and fiery advocate. For fifteen years, Neil has brought that same tenacious client advocacy to the criminal defense side. Rockind Law associate, Colin Daniels, is also a tireless advocate for his clients and, among his many honors, was named one of Michigan’s Rising Star Attorneys by Michigan Super Lawyers Magazine.

When you choose the Rockind Law team to defend you against criminal charges, we draw a line. On our side of that line is your future as you envision it: free of the consequences of criminal conviction. On the other side of the line is the opposition, with their threats of jail time, fines and the potential to ruin your life.

The Rockind Law team uses our extensive knowledge and experience to stop the prosecution from crossing that line. We will work tirelessly to obtain a fair settlement for you.

Learn what it is like to have someone fight for you.  Unlike the majority of lawyers who claim “not to take it personally,” we do just that:  take your case personally.  It is personal to you so it is personal to us. We are ready to help and will stand beside you until get you the justice you deserve.
