Just left my Appeal Hearing to have my Drivers License reinstated. My case was complicated by an out of state move. With such empathy and kindness, Neil took the time to skillfully navigate me through every detail. He even took the time to meet with me on Sunday and during holidays to accommodate my personal schedule! He truly cares about his clients and with a laser focus adds personal attention to detail. It is customary to take 3-4 weeks to hear back on the resulting Order. My hearing officer granted my request to reinstate my license on the Spot! Thank you Neil, for putting my mind at ease, taking the time to prepare me, and for the confidence you instilled for my awesome outcome! Colin and the rest of your staff are equal in their personal attention to detail. I HIGHLY recommend Neil and his staff for results.

I was facing a felony and misdemeanor charge. In a county with the odds stacked against me. I had everything to lose including five years of lobbying in Lansing. These charges would have made the last five years of my life and the future that I've worked for tirelessly useless. I was told that Rockind Law was expensive, all I have to say is the old analogy "You get what you pay for" Couldn't be more true! If you want a prize fighter in the court room and someone who is not afraid of the system, then do yourself a favor and put this law firm to work for you. From the Paralegal Breanna to Attorney Colin Daniels I was made aware of what was going on and what to expect. I was never promised an outcome, other than we will fight for you every step of the way and they did just that. Now I have to tell a quick story. During my raid Rockind Law had a local attorney at my home within forty minutes, to advise me and make sure the police weren't taking liberties. I asked this attorney what his opinion of Neil Rockind was, he immediately got a smile on his face and shared his opinion of attorneys in general. He said "Some get into the profession in hopes of making big money, some of these attorneys are marginal, some of them are good and enjoy what they do with better than average results" Then he said "Every now and then you come across an attorney that has been touched by God and that is Neil Rockind". I thought wow! kind words, but after all Rockind Law sent him here. But after seeing the first police officer get cross examined all I can say is I Had court side seats literally (LMAO) to something that most people only see on TV. It was amazing...
For the record, All charges were dismissed.

I was charged with felonious assault and assault and battery. I just finished college with honors, and what I thought was going to be the best summer of my life ended up being a complete and total nightmare! I have never been in trouble with the law prior to this incident. I initially hired another attorney from a different law firm that I discharged after meeting and talking to Neil in person. Looking back, that was the best decision that I could have made! I have always planned on going to graduate school, and if I were convicted of these charges, all of my hard work would have been for nothing. A lot of companies and schools will not accept you if you are a convicted felon. So, I felt like I had a lot to lose, and I didn’t want to take chances sticking with my first attorney.
When I first met Neil, he was already strategizing, and tearing the police report apart. I also mentioned to Neil that I have a CPL, and I didn’t want to lose my gun rights. During the whole court process I expressed that I was not going to accept the prosecuting attorney’s plea deals (violent criminal charges) that would take them away, and Neil agreed that I should not accept them. Neil and his team (Colin, Noel, and Breanna) all worked hard on my case and they came through with amazing results. My case was dismissed. I will never be able to truly express my gratitude for everything that Rockind Law has done for me. I have my life back! I maintained my gun rights, and I plan on going to graduate school after taking a nice long vacation to recover from the stress of this whole ordeal. I will never forget Neil, Colin, Noel, and Breanna. Thank you so much for everything that you’ve done for me.
If you’re still reading this...hire them already!!!

Neil Rockind is the best. He goes full force 100%. I was charged with 12 felonies and he got them all dismissed. He is well known and feared by anyone that is going up against him. He saved my life and my family. Having him in your corner tells you that everything will be fine and he will fight all the way.

I hired Neil Rockind in March for a legal matter. I was very nervous about my case. Neil made me feel very confident. One thing I loved about him, he is a fighter. He will fight his last words for his client. I put all my trust into Neil. I was not disappointed with the outcome. Case was dismissed. He's very professional. He tells you like it is. Which I loved because I didn't want any lawyer just telling me what I wanted to hear. He is the absolute truth, He's extremely smart with the law and is willing to put anyone to the test. Best thing I ever did was hiring Neil Rockind.

I retained Neil Rockind in May 2015 and he represented me for five hearings all on the same day in the Wayne County PPO Court on May 19, 2015. I was being set up by a group of people that had previously been my best friends for over seven years and whom I had known my entire life. These people were literally using lies in an attempt to defecate on my name, obtain PPOs against me MULTIPLE TIMES (never once based off of any truth) and to destroy my future job opportunities- specifically because I was just weeks away from graduating nursing school. The seriousness of their untrue accusations were beginning to make me feel hopeless and it became very emotionally traumatizing. One of Neil''s peers recommended Neil to me and at that time I had already paid the retainer to hire Maggie Swift from Garmo & Kiste Law Firm. After meeting with Neil for a consultation, I knew that it was in my best interest to have him represent me because the complexity of the situation I was dealing with was very extreme and within minutes of discussing it with Neil, I felt unquestionably confident- for the first time. I literally asked Garmo & Kiste to withdraw counsel and hired Neil Rockind! Some people would say that's a stupid decision and a waste of money. I did it because I knew the facts and I knew I was out numbered for my case... BY FAR! Long story... Short version: Jeopardizing my future was a risk I was surely not willing to take!!! I felt that by hiring Neil to represent me, I had the best chance I could possibly have!!! NEIL ROCKIND WON MY CASE! When I walked out of court that day, there were no PPOs granted against me! The people who thought their lies were seamless and that they would soon hold my future in the palm of their hands had failed!!! All of their PPOs were denied and rightfully so! Through his FLAWLESS CROSS EXAMINATION, Neil proved that every single accusation was indeed a lie and that I was actually being set up with lies- shedding light on the FACT that all three people who had petitioned the court for a PPO against me were actually attempting to obtain PPOs with lies and that their integrity was in fact, very questionable! I couldn't have asked for him to do anything different! He did a MORE THAN PERFECT JOB... a MORE THAN AMAZING JOB in the court room, as my lawyer! I wouldn't have had it any other way!!! I honestly believe that his tactics are FLAWLESS, his skill is of the highest caliber, and I DEFINITELY WOULD NEVER, EVER HIRE ANYONE ELSE!!! #rockindlaw #hirethebest #killercrossexamination #rockweiler #flawlesslawyering

Neil has been nothing but a blessing for me. He has taken care of myself and my family and countless friends for years. I can say without a doubt he is in every way possible the best attorney in his speciality hands down.

Need a solid attorney when you have no chance? Hire Neil.
I regretfully used a young city prosecuting attorney for a domestic violence case that I lost. I was the victim. The jury felt bad that if my ex-husband was found guilty for what he did to me, he would not be able to see his kids. They found him not guilty and what he did to me was not that bad. Neil was hired to help keep my PPO in place while my ex filed to terminate it. In the end, Neil was brought in to accomplish what some thought impossible: to win a PPO case after an acquittal at a trial. The Judge helped protect me by keeping the PPO in place. Today was a good day and I am safe.

After receiving a ridiculous plea offer from the prosecution
We hired Neil to be the lead attorney on our defense
Team. After reviewing the case and documents provided
To him he did a great job of turning it around and knocking them down at every turn. The courtroom is his arena.
