Auto accident attorney Steven M. Gursten has been honored by Michigan Lawyers Weekly as a Lawyer of the Year. Out of more than 40,000 Michigan lawyers, Steve was chosen for his record-breaking pain and suffering settlement of $9 million for a truck accident case, and for securing the largest Michigan auto accident verdict multiple times throughout his first decade of practice.
Gursten says, “Success always seems to build on success. And hard work makes luck. No one works harder than I do. I also think it helps because we only handle serious car accident and truck accident cases, that the attorneys in our office will often see things sooner or are forced to deal with something sooner than most other attorneys. We already have the work product.
But remember, law is a humbling profession and I deal everyday with some very smart lawyers. I am constantly seeing new things and learning new things. I am lucky that I work in an office with other excellent auto accident attorneys, and I am lucky that I am able to practice law with my dad. I’m third generation here… There are a lot of outstanding trial lawyers here to bounce ideas off of.”
