Not all criminal defense lawyers are alike. Neil Rockind is a former assistant prosecuting attorney who prosecuted high profile and serious cases in the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office for several years. In 1997, Neil Rockind left the prosecutor's office to become a criminal defense lawyer. Since doing so, he has set the standard, according to many, for what many expect in a criminal defense lawyer.
He is aggressive. In fact, his aggressive, no-holds-barred style has earned him the nickname, "The Rockweiler". Neil has won acquittals in all varieties of cases. A former radio talk show host, Neil can be seen regularly on television where he is frequent contributor on "Let It Rip" and commenting on legal cases and issues. Rockind has won many awards and honors for his successful practice: Top Criminal Lawyer by DBusiness Magazine, Best of Detroit by Hour Detroit, Top 100 Lawyers in Michigan by Super Lawyers, Top 50 Lawyers by Super Lawyers, and Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers Association.
Neil Rockind, P.C. is home to another highly regarded criminal defense lawyer, Colin Daniels. He has been named a rising star several years in a row by Super Lawyers Magazine. Together, the pair make a formidable pair in the defense of criminal cases.
We handle all varieties of criminal cases. Drunk driving, domestic violence, federal, drug, assault and battery, weapons, and fraud cases are just a few of the types of cases that we handle. Our motto is simple:
When you choose us to defend you against criminal charges, we are going to draw a line. On our side of that line is your future as you envision it: free of the consequences of a criminal conviction.
