MUSKEGON DEFENSE ATTORNEY

I AM RICHARD CATALINO

WHO AM I?

I’ve been married for 39 years and have four children. I’ve been practicing law for 32 years and specialize in criminal defense, family law, and license restorations. I graduated from Grand Valley State University in 1970. I completed my graduate work at Central Michigan University and received my J.D. with Honors, from Thomas M. Cooley Law School, 1986.

EXPERT IN INJURY/WRONGFUL DEATH LAW

I primarily represent those who have been accused of crimes, both felonies and misdemeanors. I have many not guilty verdicts in many counties in West Michigan. I handle many drunk driving cases, license restoration cases, and all other cases in which people find themselves accused of committing criminal offenses. I also spend a great deal of my practice representing those involved in divorces, child custody matters, and family law. I also write wills and perform general probate work.
