About Us

Our Approach

Rutledge & Tinaj, PLLC is a well-known personal injury law firm whose reputation is built on trust. Our attorneys uphold the highest standards of ethical conduct and integrity.  Todd P. Rutledge and Ervin G. Tinaj have represented clients in all types of accident, injury, and wrongful death claims in courts throughout the State of Michigan, and most frequently in the counties of Wayne, Macomb, Oakland, Genesee, Washtenaw, Monroe and Livingston.  Our Firm has also represented clients in the U.S. Federal Court, Eastern District of Michigan, and Western District of Michigan.

We understand that dealing with a serious injury—either that of your own or a loved one—can create a great deal of stress and anxiety. We are here to help you get through this difficult time. We will provide you with the step-by-step guidance you need to overcome the consequences. Our unbreakable commitment to every client is that we provide passionate advocacy and let nothing stand in our way to get you and your loved ones the maximum compensation you deserve.

Our Mission

Our mission is simple. Our job is to find the truth and use it in the courtroom to protect the rights, interests, and futures of our clients and thereby promote safety for others. As our record shows, we have been successful in applying our experience and skills by harnessing the power of the civil justice system to provide a voice to those who have been injured or wronged at the hands of others. Our core qualities of honesty, trust, experience, aggressiveness and tireless advocacy to get justice, in the form of full and adequate monetary compensation for our clients have translated into success – no matter the size or strength of our legal opponents.

Why Choose Us?

Our business realizes that without you there is no us. As such, we treat you like a person, not an attorney. We use our deep understanding of Michigan personal injury law, and significant courtroom experience to provide you with exceptional, personalized service and counsel clients facing considerable personal and legal challenges with candid and knowledgeable advice to your many unanswered questions.  We are dedicated to educating, guiding and informing our clients about their legal rights needed to obtain the maximum compensation they deserve. We are always willing to answer clients’ questions and address concerns about the various aspects of their individual case. It’s important to us that our clients understand the legal options available to them and are able to make informed decisions regarding their case. Contrary to the trend with many other law firms that claim to be Michigan’s largest law firm, Rutledge & Tinaj, PLLC has remained small in order to provide the highest quality of service to our clients.

Close Communication

Our reputation is built on trust.  In our unyielding pursuit of this mission, we have worked tirelessly to earn this reputation and continue to work hard to maintain this core value which has become our foundation for success.

We believe the most important investment of all is in the continuous effort in getting to know and serve our clients.  Our business realizes that we must built strong bridges of communication by continuously interacting with you which helps us understand your values, instincts and priorities as the basis for excellent lawyering. Your unique knowledge and insight are critical components of a successful result. In short, the better we know you, the greater the likelihood that we will anticipate your needs and deliver the results you expect.

Results

You come to us for results, and we create innovative, effective and practical solutions crafted to achieve the pursuit of justice, in the form of full and adequate monetary compensation of our clients. Our law firm will pursue the maximum compensation you need and deserve, inside the courtroom or out. If your settlement offer is inadequate, you can rest assured that we are prepared to seek full compensation through trial. Many factors contribute to the decision to try or settle your case; however, you can have peace of mind knowing our firm is prepared to take whichever option is in your best interests. Our attorneys have generated millions of dollars by providing legal recourse for accident injury victims throughout the state of Michigan who have been injured or wronged at the hands of others in car accidents, truck accidents, construction accidents, pedestrian accidents, boat accidents, slip and fall accidents, closed-head injury, and wrongful death cases. Few law firms approach every case like this, but we are certain that our continued success and tried legal methods make us the right choice for you.
