Southfield, Michigan | October 26, 2016 Giroux Ratton, a law firm specializing in personal injury and trial cases has added an appeals department. An ideal extension of a firm with extensive trial experience, the appeals department will manage all internal appeals and can take the lead on appeals or dispositive motions from law firms that may wish to allocate their litigating attorney resources elsewhere or may lack the specialized experience.
Giroux Ratton's appellate practice is led by Matthew Klakulak who has handled more than sixty appeals to the Michigan Court of Appeals, Michigan Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and other appellate courts. Issues addressed involved personal injury, governmental immunity, medical malpractice, insurance coverage, vicarious liability, employment law, criminal defense, and many others.
“We are pleased to have Matthew join us. He has extensive experience in briefing and arguing dispositive motions in both state and federal trial courts and many of these cases have involved extremely complex, research-intensive issues and multi-million dollar injuries and jury verdicts,” said Michael Ratton, Managing Partner.
Founded in 2015, the partners, Bob Giroux and Michael Ratton have a combined 50 years of legal experience. They founded the firm so they could treat clients with the respect and compassion they deserve and deliver a high level of service and expertise. The firm represents people who have suffered serious personal injury, the wrongful death of a family member, unjust criminal charges, or the violation of civil rights. They have handled cases on behalf of plaintiffs as well as defendants and have practiced extensively in both Federal Court and various state Circuit Courts throughout Michigan and beyond.
