I have worked with him in municipal law cases since the early 1980's and find his approach, his logical analysis, his artful crafting of argument and position and, most importantly, his unflappable demeanor, an incredible asset.
– Ed Zelenak, City Attorney for Cities of Lincoln Park and Southgate
As a cop with over 27yrs. of experience I've known hundreds of attorneys in all capacities. Like any profession, there are good and bad ones that have come and gone. One of the best I've ever known is Ed Plato. Ed has always been firm but fair no matter what side of table he was sitting on and has used his great communication skills to cut through to the core of any issue.
I first met Ed when he was a litigation attorney for the City of Inkster. I watched Ed repeatedly use his knowledge and grasp of the law to steer the city through very difficult times, all the while maintaining his integrity and professionalism. Ed Plato saved the City of Inkster millions of dollars during his tenure there. When Ed decided to leave his position with Inkster, the City lost not only a great attorney, but a caring friend as well.
Even long after he left Inkster, Ed always made himself available to answer questions and give advice to those who needed it. This was often on his own time and without payment. Ed Plato cares about the people he represents and his clients often become his friends.
I would not hesitate to recommend Ed to friends and family or whoever needed a hard working, dedicated, and honest attorney.
