      Smart business attorney. Reasonable rates. Perfect for my small business.

    quotesWhen one of my business clients broke his contract and refused to pay for the work I did, I thought I was out of luck. But the Law Office of Robert W. Ratish helped me recover the total amount I was owed, saving me and my company thousands of dollars. Robert was thorough, aggressive, and always kept me informed about my case. I would gladly recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer they can trust.
