Josh lived up to the Michigan Auto Law name in taking care of me
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. 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.
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.
I don't have to worry about paying my medical bills ever again
By Amanda Swett, Flint May 13, 2014
I'm extremely happy with my attorney Josh Terebelo. He kept my husband and I informed of everything going on with the case. I was injured and didn't know what steps to take with my medical care and my insurance company. When he would start explaining things, he would do so in a way that we could understand it, which was good because I don't catch on to the lawyer mumbo jumbo. Josh also had a hard case with us because there was a lot of physical damage to me, but not a lot of physical damage to the outside of my car. He is extremely generous. One time, he actually gave us gas money out of his pocket so we could get to the office. We are happy with the settlement Josh got for us. I don't have to worry about paying my medical bills ever again.

Josh Terebelo is a very caring attorney. He's very patient, honest and straightforward. An overall good person to work with. He brings in good energy. The communication is great and creates a comfortable relationship. He's not like a typical lawyer. He actually cares about his clients like family. He helped me with my no fault insurance lawsuit after my car accident. He gave me a lot of insight into the laws and what to do and what not to do. I got all of the benefits I was entitled to. I feel so comfortable working with Michigan Auto Law. I tell everyone every day about this firm. Best lawyers in the state of Michigan. You can't beat 'em!
I've referred 3 other people
By T.P.C., Detroit March 10, 2014
This firm does an absolutely great job. I've referred 3 other people here that also say the same thing. Our attorney Josh gave us his all in all. He held up through our case and did a great job on my behalf. He's a hard, diligent worker.
Settled my tractor trailer case to my satisfaction
By Dan Henry, Otsego January 24, 2014
I got great advice for my accident after I was hit by semi tractor trailer on how to interact with the insurance company. Attorney Josh Terebelo settled my case to my satisfaction. I was very happy with the way he treated me. He was very upfront and honest and could appreciate my honesty and dignity. He stayed in communication with me the entire time. I would absolutely recommend Josh for any auto case.
Made sure the insurance company covered all of our medical bills
By Ronald and Katrina Gasiorowski, Hazel Park October 31, 2013
We love our lawyers Josh and Brandon. They helped us a ton. My wife and I weren't sure what to do after our car accident. It was the first time. We were hit by a 16 year old kid who was driving a permit at night. He shouldn't have been on the road at all. We were both bedridden and on top of that there was a ton of stress because we were getting called by our insurance company and didn't understand what to do. Josh and Brandon explained the law to us and our rights. They called us every week and let us know the status of the case. My doctor was worried about my car insurance covering my cast after the crash but the lawyers made sure the insurance company covered all of our medical bills. Happy with the settlement and we would definitely refer Michigan Auto Law to everyone we can tell.
Michigan Auto Law specializes in traumatic brain injury and they care
By Carey DeCamp, Gobels October 23, 2013
My husband was hit from behind by a drunk driver doing well over 100 miles per hour. My husband's life will never be the same from his injuries, specifically his traumatic brain injuries. I knew I had to find an attorney who knows what they're doing and that's why I chose Michigan Auto Law. I could see their clients are happy and that they specialize in traumatic brain injury. I found they care at Michigan Auto Law. My attorneys have been engaged in every step of the process. Our attorneys Kevin and Amy are a compassionate team. Everybody that we worked with Jeff, Joshua, Amy and Kevin and Elize. They are very helpful and professional. My husband and I were very happy with them, especially not knowing how such a lawsuit would work out. When it's all said and done, I couldn't have asked for more. We are very satisfied.
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.

By Sherrie Kerschenheiter, Lake Orion May 31, 2013
Josh Terebelo has always answered my questions efficiently and made me feel comfortable and at ease throughout my entire case.

I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an accident attorney.
Took my case to trial because the insurance company was offering nothing to settle my case
By Vikin Hannosh, Shelby Township April 30, 2013
Michigan Auto Law is excellent. I cannot say enough good things about this firm. I was involved in a car accident at a red light when somebody rear ended me and here I had an entire team of lawyers and professionals representing me. My lawyers were Kevin, Josh and Amy. They deliver on their promises and I recommend them all the time. Kevin Seiferheld was a great lawyer. He took my case to trial because the insurance company was offering nothing to settle my case. Kevin wouldn't take no for an answer. We got a verdict for $1 and a half million. Michigan Auto Law was fighting for me from day one and had my back all the way. They were also very responsive and kind. Every time I called, Kevin would answer me within 24 hours. He was always available. The team was very professional and prepared to the tee. They got all of my medical expenses covered and my attendant care and household services so I could recover from my injuries. They had all the bases covered.
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 layman's 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.
Without a doubt, Josh fought for my rights as hard as he could.
By Renardo Edwards, Belleville September 28, 2011
Josh Terebelo is a really, really personable attorney. He made me feel comfortable throughout the litigation process. I was in a bad car accident and had never sued anybody before. Josh broke everything down for me. He made it simple and he made it clear. If he didn't think I understood, he would actually call me back to discuss the issue. For instance, Josh walked me through exactly what to expect during a deposition and I really appreciated it. I think he is an excellent attorney and it's rare to find that. Without a doubt, Josh fought for my rights as hard as he could. I would recommend him to any of my friends because he's an understanding, dedicated attorney.
