Joseph J. Blata was raised in the small town of Skidway Lake, Michigan by a middle-class family of blue collar General Motors workers. After graduating from Whittemore-Prescott High School, he moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he obtained a Bachelor’s Degree with a double major in English and Psychology. Not quite sure if he wanted to be a psychiatrist, attorney, or something else, Joe (or Joey to his longtime friends) entered the workforce in metro Detroit for 2 years. Still unsatisfied, he attended Central Michigan University for 2 years, studying pre-medicine and enhancing his psychology degree. It was at this point he decided he wanted to be an attorney, so Joe obtained his Law Degree at Michigan State College of Law (though he is still a Wolverine at heart).
Much of Joe’s success in family law, license appeals, and criminal defense, stems from his ability to understand human behavior and his no-nonsense approach. If you want an attorney who can delve into the deeper issues, and be upfront about them, then Joe will be happy to help.
