Client Testimonials

Ian will be our attorney for life
By , Taylor February 26, 0016
My father and I got into an accident on US 12 in Ypsilanti when we were rear ended by a semi truck. We were sitting at the red light with a four wheeler in the back of the truck. The semi that was coming never touched the brakes. We hit seven or eight cars in front of us. We were both out of consciousness when we got to the hospital. When we woke up in the hospital, it was brought to our attention that we should hire an attorney to represent us. I had a friend who was injured in a truck wreck several years back and he made the phone call to Ian Freed at Michigan Auto Law for us. Ian took the case from there. Everything went our way. Every problem that has come about, Ian took care of. We are 100% happy with the outcome. Ian is the number one attorney to us. He has been fantastic. He explained the case in a way so that we were never confused and he was always on top of it. If something came up, he would call us immediately and ask us how we wanted to proceed. He always kept us informed and were never in the dark, not even for a moment. He made us feel more like family than having a client attorney relationship. It wasn't like calling a lawyer, it was like calling someone I knew. Ian has always been real, kind and straight up with us. That's hard to get in lawyers these days. Ian has given us the opportunity to get our lives back on the right track after this truck accident nearly ruined them. We also like how he didn't take anything from the defense lawyers - he didn't let them confuse us or stress us out. It never came to that. We would use Ian again and we would recommend him 100%. There will never be another attorney we will try. We are comfortable with Ian and he will be our attorney for life.
Ian outfoxed our difficult defense attorney
By , Ecorse April 21, 0015
Mostly I had heard about Michigan Auto Law through my son, who was in a car accident many years ago. I felt comfortable calling after my wife and I were in a serious accident because these attorneys came highly recommended and I knew they only handle car and truck accidents. A semi truck turned into my car. My wife was badly hurt and we wanted to know how we could protect her rights. Ian Freed was our attorney and he surely protected her. He was knowledgeable, kept us up to date and kept us very informed of what was going on. We liked him very much. He has an easy going personality and he never let us down. We had a difficult defense attorney but Ian outfoxed him many a legal maneuvers. He got us the highest settlement we could get. If you think you may have a tough case, Ian is the guy to call.
I couldn't have asked for a better attorney
By , Pontiac December 08, 0014
I was side swiped coming home from Home Depot on the passenger side. I hit my head. I wanted to talk to an attorney because of the accident and I was injured. I found Michigan Auto Law and I had Ian Freed as my lawyer. I loved you guys. Ian was awesome. He was talking my language. He helped me with my lawsuit. He asked me questions about the accident and made sure I understood everything that was happening. He also worked with my granddaughters on my case and made sure they were appraised of everything. Ian got me a very nice settlement. I would highly recommend Ian. He's a very nice attorney to deal with - straightforward and honest. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney.
Ian treated me like we knew each other for a long time
By , Taylor November 24, 0014
I was involved in a car accident in 2012 with injuries involved. Ian Freed represented me as my attorney. I had never dealt with a lawsuit before, so I didn't know what to expect. Ian treated me like we knew each other for a long time. He made the process easier and put me at ease, when dealing with the complicated legal issues that he was handling. I'm very happy with the way he settled my case. The communication was unbelievable. I feel like he made me a priority. I felt important, and you don't get that with a lot of people. I would definitely recommend Ian. He's a great lawyer.
To have an attorney on my side who was looking out for my needs was great
By , Warren September 26, 0014
I'm in law enforcement, so I wanted a high profile place to handle my car accident case, not one of the lawyers that are in your face on television. Michigan Auto Law seemed much more professional and protective of its clients. I found them online and chose this firm after reading about how happy their other clients were. After my accident, I was unclear of what benefits I was entitled. I called State Farm and they weren't informative. But when I called Michigan Auto Law, everything was explained to me in a way that I could perfectly understand by attorney Jeff Bussell. Ian Freed handled my auto accident lawsuit. To have an attorney on my side who was looking out for my needs was great. I was pleased with how Ian took care of everything. If I had a question, Ian and Jeff answered promptly and always called me back. They were very attentive to phone calls, meetings, everything. This communication and knowledge helped get me to a settlement I'm absolutely happy with. Ian gave me a lot of information to make my decision and he guided me to a direction so he could settle my case for much more than the insurance company was offering.
