Addition of Top Trial Lawyers to The Criminal Defense Firm Federal Defense Team

The Criminal Defense Firm, a Dallas-based federal litigation firm, announced today the recruitment of several top criminal litigators. One of those is Michael Rataj.

Detroit-based Michael Rataj has defended clients in federal criminal cases for close to 25 years. Mr. Rataj’s high-profile trial expertise is routinely featured by media stations and peer reviews.

Michael further strengthens our renowned federal criminal trial practice group by adding the experience of literally hundreds of criminal jury trials. I think it is fair to say that our litigation experience is quite unique for a boutique firm. If you add the decades of prosecutorial experience, and the insights gained over many years at leading positions within the Department of Justice, you can say that The Criminal Defense Firm stands out in the niche of federal criminal litigation. Looking at the feedback we received from our clients, we feel confirmed in our approach to provide quality legal services to those that find themselves in the federal criminal justice system. .

The Criminal Defense Firm is a team of former Department of Justice trial attorneys, former federal prosecutors, and experienced litigators, including the firm’s original litigator Elizabeth Stepp.
