The American Association for Justice recently published a story on charitable endeavors from Michigan Auto Law for its Trial Lawyers Care project.
The American Association for Justice is the nation’s largest injury attorney group, with more than 50,000 lawyer members working together to project accident victims.
The Trial Lawyers Care project aims to encourage, recognize, and organize trial lawyers who contribute to their communities through volunteer and charitable activities that serve the public good.
Attorney Steven Gursten, head of Michigan Auto Law, told the American Association for Justice why the law firm is so passionate about volunteering:
“We are proud to be lawyers who help people. That is what we do. And giving back is just one more way that we can live and demonstrate our values. It is why we became people lawyers, not insurance company lawyers.”
While Michigan Auto Law takes giving back to the community seriously, the firm also likes to have fun with it.
For example, most of Michigan Auto Law’s attorneys received their undergraduate or law degree from the University of Michigan or Michigan State University. So the firm takes the big in-state rivalry games in football and basketball seasons as an opportunity to promote firm spirit and make donations to a good cause.
