Hit by a semi: Made the traumatic process easy for me
By Doug Scharer, Monroe November 13, 2013
Everybody at Michigan Auto Law is thorough and gives good communication. This firm did a good job with my case. I was hit by semi in my Jeep and in bad shape. But my lawyer Josh had my best interests in mind and made the traumatic process easy for me. He always answered my phone calls and didn’t leave me hanging when I needed questions answered. My insurance company was paying my benefits and then they cut me off. Josh filed a lawsuit against them for medical bills. He got me a really great settlement that I’m very pleased with. I would absolutely recommend Josh.
I gained a friend in my attorney
By Michelle Nellis-Kinney, Adrian September 20, 2013
I would recommend anyone in a car accident to go to Michigan Auto Law. My experience with my lawyer Josh Terebelo was awesome. The compassion from the get go, the attention to detail and care that he put into my case was amazing to me. Typically attorneys get a bad rap for wanting to take care of themselves. I didn’t get that from Josh. He genuinely cared about whether I was taken care of and to me, that speaks volumes. He is a great guy. Just the fact that he took care of everything, and I didn’t really have to worry about anything that had to do with legal stuff. He really handled my case seamlessly. It was nice to be able to trust somebody knowing he had my best interest in mind. The case settled out of court, which was great. I was absolutely happy with my settlement. Josh is still involved in helping me even though my case has ended. I feel like I gained a friend.
It’s easy to find a lawyer but its hard to find a lawyer like Joshua.
By Elvis Pllumbaj, Macomb September 13, 2013
Michigan Auto Law is a very professional law firm. They always made me feel comfortable. Always on time with everything. For example if I forgot a date or paper to fill out or something they always called me. They were very patient with me. And then there was my attorney Joshua Terebelo. He is very nice, very kind, very professional and caring towards me. He is very understanding. He explained to me almost everything about my car accident and what was going to happen throughout my case. With regard to the case, he took it personal. I felt like his family pretty much. I highly recommend him to anybody that has a problem with a car accident or an accident case. I’ve had a great experience with Joshua. I feel like it’s easy to find a lawyer but its hard to find a lawyer like Joshua.
I wouldn’t trade Josh for the world!
By Felicia Jones, Detroit August 20, 2013
I wouldn’t trade Josh for the world. He’s a very dependable attorney. He listens to you. He’s not the type to just tell you facts. He breaks it down and tells you exactly how your lawsuit will go. He doesn’t sugarcoat anything. He always gives me advice on what’s in my best interest and that made me feel well protected. I needed help with everything after my car crash. And also what I liked about him, if I called him and he wasn’t available, he called me back that day. Josh was there legally and friend wise. He was really there. His name is common in our household in family meetings and he even helps my family when they have legal questions. I have referred Josh to several people in my family who have been in accidents.

Josh got me the max
By Ada Edens, Warren May 01, 2013
Josh is a great attorney. He kept me posted all the time. He got my medical bills paid when my auto insurance expended me. He got me a settlement that I’m happy with. He got me the max.
Completely took the stress and worry off my shoulders
By Lynn Abduok, Waterford April 26, 2013
Michigan Auto Law completely took the stress and worry off my shoulders. The accident, a head on collision was bad enough, and having to worry about everything was really hard on me. But Josh took care of all my needs. He was an excellent attorney. He talked me down when I had panic attacks. He reassured me that everything was going to be alright and if Plan A didn’t work, there was a Plan B. He had my back, he really did. I got everything that was entitled to me with my lawsuit so I’m very happy. I would highly recommend Josh and everybody at this firm. I can’t thank him enough for doing what he’s done for me. There was no way I could have gotten through without him.
I was vulnerable, and having a lawyer like Josh on my side was very helpful
By J.T., Roseville February 25, 2013
One thing I really appreciate about my lawyer Josh Terebelo is that when I e-mail him or call him, he always responds very quickly. That is extremely appropriate. He always follows through 100%. He always answered every question thoroughly, and he simplifies the answers and puts them in laymans terms. This was my first experience being involved in a major life changing accident. When you’re feeling very vulnerable about these issues having a lawyer like Josh on my side was very helpful. He helped me get my lost wages from my insurance company and my medical benefits. That was one less thing to worry about so I could worry about healing. For example, I got a very large hospital bill in the mail. I forwarded it to him and he made sure my no fault insurance paid for it. This was a huge ordeal for me and I wouldn’t have been able to get through it without Josh.
Josh is a really wonderful attorney who is true to his word
By Richard Williams, Eastpointe January 09, 2013
Josh was my attorney and he treated me really well. He explained everything to me about my three cases – nofault, workers comp and third party for pain and suffering – and it was really helpful. I didn’t know one from the other. He kept his line open so I could call him any time I needed. Josh is a really wonderful attorney and I would recommend him to anyone. I was very satisfied with the settlement Josh got for me. He told me what he thought he could get and that’s what he did. He’s true to his word and he kept me informed all the way.
