By Nancy St. John, Riverview September 18, 2015
My lawyer Josh Terebelo provided excellent representation after my car accident. He was prompt, did what he said he was going to do, and was actually like family. But he was very professional at the same time. Josh lived up to the Michigan Auto Law name, which is they take care of their clients with compassion, respect and dedication. He makes you feel comfortable. He was simply excellent.
Compassionate and ethical attorneys who know what they're doing
By Robbie A., Romulus August 21, 2015
My mailbox got stuffed full of letters from attorneys after my car accident and I didn't know what to do.ÃŠ I thought it was strange they had my information without knowing me and didn't like how that felt, So I went online and found Michigan Auto Law. I chose this firm because of its informative website and the reviews I read from other happy clients. I wanted help getting my medical care paid for. Josh Terebelo helped me do that by handing my case for No Fault benefits and so much more. He also filed a lawsuit for my pain and suffering. He was truly professional and handled everything with ease. The outcome on both cases was great. I would recommend this law firm. They are compassionate and ethical attorneys who know what they're doing and have the clients' best interest in mind at all times. ÃŠ
Helped me as an Ontario resident who crashed in Michigan
By G. Kardassopolous, Farmington January 20, 2015
We live in Ontario but we were in a car accident in Michigan. Our Canadian lawyer had difficulty with the Michigan system and so sought help from Michigan Auto Law. Josh Terebelo was of great help and kept us up to date with what was going on with our case in Michigan. We didn't have any trouble going through the Michigan court proceedings and living in another country. Josh was knowledgeable and always available to answer questions about both sides of the law. He settled our case for a large amount, so we didn't have to go to trial. I would definitely recommend Michigan Auto Law to my fellow Canadians who often drive in Michigan.
Josh did an excellent job at protecting me and settling my case
By Janifa Williams, River Rouge November 05, 2014
I got injured in an accident where somebody rear ended me at a red light. The driver was elderly and on a cell phone. I had to get my neck operated on and so I called to see what I was entitled to after the accident. The first person I spoke with was attorney Brandon Hewitt. He was great. He was very informational and answered all of my questions about how my lawsuit would begin and play out. I decided to hire this law firm because Brandon was so helpful. Then my case was passed to Josh Terebelo. He was also great. Very understanding of the law and had a nice personality. He always told my family and I to call him no matter what time it was. He was accessible 24 hours a day and laid everything out on the table. He didn't make us false promises. Josh did an excellent job at protecting me and settling my case.
When my lawyer was with me, it was all about me
By LaTonya Green, Warren July 18, 2014
They are very courteous and understanding at Michigan Auto Law. I felt a lot of empathy from my attorney Josh after my car accident. He explained everything he did and advised me on what I should and shouldn't do throughout my case. He took his time with me and told me step by step what was going to happen. He was honest about everything. And I had a lot of confidence that he was going to do the right thing. Any time I called, Josh made himself available to talk with me. Some people you have to wait two or three days but not with Josh. If Josh was in court, he would still call me back same day. He was never rushed. When he was with me, it was all about me. With Josh, protecting me throughout my case was personal - like I was family. I had a difficult case and Josh did the absolute best he could do for me. He worked really hard and got me the best settlement I could get.
