He was born November 4, 1955, at the "old" St. Joseph Hospital in Joliet, the son of Loretta (nee Kropinski) and Alex Michael Wojtak. Mike attended Holy Cross Grade School and graduated from Joliet Catholic High School. He did his undergraduate studies at Lewis University and received his Law Degree from Loyola University.

Mike, a partner with the Tracy, Johnson and Wilson Law Firm in Joliet, has practiced law in the community for many years.

Mike was a member of the Church of St. Jude, the WIll County Bar Association, Channahon-Minooka Rotary, and a former board member of Easter Seals. He enjoyed collecting coins and stamps, however, his greatest passion was being with family, serving his clients and his community.
