Neil is a highly esteemed attorney, humble counselor, and friend. After facing a state sentencing guidelines minimum of 72 months in prison, I was essentially doomed. However, Neil was able to get 3 felonies dismissed, allowing me to plead to a lesser modified charge in which I received two years probation. Neil Rockind is as good as it gets. God bless Rockind Law and the work that they do.

If you’re looking for the best criminal defense attorney in the state of Michigan, look no further! I am lucky, and consider it an honor, that Neil took my case – as he turns many down. As a successful small business owner in Oakland & Macomb counties, it was imperative that I hired the right attorney – and that’s exactly what I did. Mr. Rockind is well known as one of the best trial & cross examination attorney’s there is. He has a sterling reputation – and he lived up to every bit of it. He was attentive, aggressive and intensely engaged throughout the entire process – and he made the states witness in this case squirm and stutter and backtrack and stammer. He’s intimidating in the courtroom, that’s for sure! Ultimately, the unfounded and unconstitutional allegations were resolved extremely favorably for me – and I wouldn’t trust any other lawyer in Michigan to represent me (God forbid I should ever require his services again). Be prepared to pay – but if you’re looking for the best in MI... Neil “The Rockweiler” Rockind is it, without question! Thanks Neil!

Neil and his team (Colin, Breanna, Alex) were amazing defending me for an OWI 3rd offense. They fought for me til the end and eventually got it reduced to a 2nd offense which is almost impossible in Oakland County Circuit Court. They were very detailed and kept me informed at every step of the case. I would highly recommend them for any type of criminal defense case. Results are what matters and Neil and his team get RESULTS!!!!

I hired Neil through my fiancée that is a twenty year friend of his. I was handled professionally and with the utmost respect. My case was not a crazy difficult case, nonetheless I was terrified as I had never been in trouble. Neil was so cool and kind, he truly looked after me. Thanks to the Rockind Law Firm!

Neil and his team were absolutely phenomenal, on day one he told me he would fight for me all the way following proper channels. He did exactly that and case was dismissed. I couldn’t be more happy. If you are stuck and feel you are without options, this is your guy! He delivers and is straight forward, no bullshit, while also remaining personable - he is there for you.

Neil is the MAN!! We were facing probably the toughest judge in southeast Michigan, it was very scary but Neil always reassured me and calmed me down which means a lot. You definitely want Neil in your corner. It was my second offense so he understood the seriousness especially with regards to graduate school. He will do anything within his power to help. Given the circumstances of the case, he got great results! He will fight for your justice and keep you out of trouble! And not just that but he is truly a great person in general. Neil spoke beautifully on my behalf and was not intimidated, given the judge is easily the worst to have.
Neil does not just let you go and forget about you after your case. He is very caring and sincere. He has helped me on numerous occasions even after my case was settled, given advice, and always takes time to talk to you on the phone! I was very anxious about many issues during probation especially with regards to school and he was always there to help and answer questions!! I can't thank him enough for what he did. if you don't go with Neil Rockind then you might be wasting your time, I would recommend him without hesitation. If your in trouble, you better go with Neil!

I don’t know how or where to start with my review, so I’ll just start here: Neil sets the standard high for other lawyers to look up to.
Differing from most of his colleagues, Neil has tremendous compassion and used a very unique all-encompassing approach in an effort to help me during not only my case, but realizing that I could have been caught in the crosshairs of a variety of other serious issues (see last paragraph below) that transcended the confines of my specific legal case. He understood and appreciated that a conviction, even without jail, was not a win...not for me. I needed an an acquittal or dismissal.
Differing again from most other criminal lawyers, Neil really knows his audience. Our initial strategy was to go straight to trial because Neil felt he could get an acquittal or "not guilty." I knew he could as well. I've seen him do it before on at least three other occasions. But when Neil filed some evidentiary motions to pin down the issues, he started chipping away at the prosecution's case- so much so, that the judge found the arrest to be unlawful, which in turn lead the prosecutor (an ethical prosecutor) to dismiss the case.
It is also worth mentioning that Neil takes cases personally. I mean that both figuratively and literally. I hired Neil and he literally showed up to every substantive hearing. Above and beyond that, he took the case personally in the figurative sense in that he believed that the arrest was unlawful from our initial meeting on a Saturday evening at his office, and ultimately got the judge and the prosecution to agree. Results like this are rare...but not for Neil. NOT FOR NEIL.
Thanks to Neil and his amazing team of Colin, Noel, and Breanna, I can continue to travel to Canada, keep my CPL, keep my umbrella insurance policy, not have issues with driving a company car, don't have to go before a professional licensing disciplinary board, or have any other freedoms taken away, including being jailed.

Choosing the right attorney can be an intimidating process. I needed to file motions in family court. Even though Neil is a Criminal attorney he took my case and I couldn't be more grateful. Neil Rockind and his firm are outstanding. He is a lawyer FOR THE PEOPLE. Neil is extremely intelligent and shows sincere interest in his clients. He will lend support and guidance to his clients. He is a fighter. Would recommend him highly.

Whenever you need legal help, you need to go to the best. Neil Rockind and his team will not disappoint you. I can vouch that they are one of the best in town. They promise less and deliver more. This obviously comes from years of combined experience of the Rockind Law team
We were introduced to Neil Rockind by a mutual friend after I was arrested and we needed expert legal help. When I first met with Neil, he took the painstaking steps of understanding what had happened and why I was arrested. He asked me numerous questions to better understand the context and the background for my actions.
We hired Neil right away and that was the best decision we made. After arraignment, he scheduled a meeting with us and explained to us in detail the charge and the consequences of the charge, my rights as a defendant, the next steps in the process, the timeline to a resolution and the possible range of outcomes. It was clear that Neil had dealt with similar issues many times before. Neil's understanding of the subject matter was superb. He was extremely thorough in his due diligence and knew exactly what to do.
Neil’s excellent negotiation skills were evident when he was dealing with the prosecutors. The numerous back-and-forth with the prosecutors clearly showed his willingness to take an aggressive stance and fight for his client.
As I look back at what happened from start to finish, I have no doubt in my mind that Neil’s legal expertise enables him to look at things in a way that others normally don't. Consequently, it yields the best possible outcome. In our case, despite a very serious charge, there was no conviction, only probation. We cannot thank Neil enough.
Neil is ably supported by Colin, Noel and Breanna. We are very appreciative of their help throughout the process.
