Attorney Steve Gursten

by Tony Harris, Newaygo, MI
Jan. 19, 2012


Steve looked tirelessly for more insurance after my girlfriend was killed in a truck crash… and he didn't charge me

My lawyer Steve Gursten came into my life under the most devastating circumstances. One day, my girlfriend was driving to pick me up from work when she ran out of gas on I-75. As she was putting gas in her car on the side of the highway, a semi-truck veered from its lane and hit and killed her.

My deceased girlfriend's family was not satisfied with the money the insurance adjuster was offering following the truck accident, so I called Michigan Auto Law to see if there were more No-Fault benefits available for her children. Steve Gursten looked tirelessly for more insurance and he did it out of kindness – he didn't charge me a dime.

I appreciated that so much.

Steve also treated me with dignity and he was always there to answer my questions. I would recommend this attorney for anybody who needs help with a truck accident in Michigan, because he is a polite man, a man of his word and he does what he says. You don't get that with most lawyers.

Most other lawyers wanted to take 33 percent or charge $200 an hour, and didn't even care if insurance was there.

Losing my girlfriend to a truck crash caused by a trucker who may have been asleep at the wheel was horrible. But at least now I had can lay my head on my pillow, knowing I did the right thing by getting all of the insurance possible for her family.

I wouldn't have been able to do this without Steve Gursten's generous help.
