Attorney Richard Galat
After attending Michigan State University and the Detroit College of Law — now known as the Michigan State University College of Law — I began my legal career in 1995 in private practice. While attending law school, I had the opportunity to learn the inner workings of the judicial system while employed as a court officer/law clerk at the 51st District Court in Waterford, Michigan. After working as an associate attorney for several firms, I established my own law office in 2005. I am a member of McMillen & Galat, LLC, and “of counsel” to Joseph C. McMillen, PC.
Licensed to appear in every state court in Michigan, including all municipal district courts, county probate and circuit courts, the Michigan Court of Appeals, and the Michigan Supreme Court, as well as in federal court for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. My primary practice areas are in Oakland, Macomb, Wayne, Genesee and Lapeer counties. I have represented clients in cases all over Michigan, including in Livingston, Ingham, Shiawassee, Washtenaw, Saginaw, Monroe, Calhoun, Grand Traverse, Clare, Allegan, Ottawa and Kent counties.
Legal memberships include the State Bar of Michigan, the Oakland County Bar Association — Family Law Section and the Institute of Continuing Legal Education (partner). Previous membership in both the Genesee County Bar Association and the American Bar Association. To read more about my professional background, please follow the link below.
