When I first got injured in my accident, I got online in search of an attorney. I wanted to do my own research and find my own representation. I didn’t want to fall into the hype of commercials that I see every day on television. Me finding Michigan Auto Law was one of the best things I could have done for myself. I was seriously injured and have had multiple surgeries. If I had not found Michigan Auto Law, I don’t know where I would be. I could not have asked for a better attorney in Chris Hunter. He was in my corner the minute I started to work with him. Chris Is stellar and exactly what I imagine an attorney should be when you hire one. I am so thankful for him. Google

I was fortunate to have Chris Hunter as my attorney. No matter what the issue it was always addressed and the ultimate goal of a positive settlement even though it took much longer than I had anticipated was finally settled. We unfortunately had a Judge who believed that the blindfolded woman who stood as a symbol of balance and fairness didn't exist in his courtroom. We still prevailed. He worked tirelessly on my behalf and I thank him for his counsel. Thank YOU!!!

I have so much to say about Michigan Auto Law. Where do I start? For one the office is beautiful and who doesn’t want to be represented by someone that represents themselves well. Christopher Hunter is a very good lawyer. He has the best patience that a client could ask for. I know I did a review 3 yrs ago but I’m back cause I needed his assistance again. The quality of his work has not changed. I can call him and he responds promptly. He will not dodge you. But most importantly he has empathy for his clients. Like a friend. I enjoyed our time together, he’s very funny which helps. Who doesn’t want to laugh especially when you really want to cry! I will never forget him and his services..❤️ Thanks!!!!!

Christopher Hunter and his team were amazing! If I could give them 10 stars, I would. I was so fortunate to have Chris as my attorney. He was a true professional and a class act. He was so sincere and I could tell he really cared. He always made himself available to answer my questions and address my concerns. Chris worked hard and always kept me informed. He was honest and direct, and he told it like it was. He was a calming force throughout this entire process. I would highly recommend Michigan Auto Law.

I can't speak highly enough about Michigan Auto Law and my experience with Christopher Hunter and his team (including Jordan Barkey, Eileen Kelly, and LaTrice Watson). Chris fought endless battles with iniquitous insurance companies and opposing lawyers lacking moral turpitude. Jordan was very supportive when Chris was handling court matters. And Eileen and LaTrice were always available to answer questions and keep me on track with appointments and court filings. This is a well-tuned orchestra that you can trust with all your legal matters. Chris is not only a great lawyer who knows how the auto insurance game is played on BOTH sides, but he is an empathic person, who really cares about his client's life even after a verdict is rendered. Chris is also a highly ethical person that I'm proud to call a friend. He gives advice but never imposes his opinion on his clients. He explained every aspect of the process of the lawsuit, step by step. He answered every question that I had. He was always available to me by phone, email and text. You can't go wrong with Chris Hunter and Michigan Auto Law.

Chris, Jordan, and Eileen were very helpful through one of the hardest periods in our lives. They worked night and day to achieve a positive result for us. They were always available through out the process to answer questions and help us deal with anything and everything over the last four years. I wish we could have come to know them under different circumstances but our family is grateful for all they have done to help us.

I found Michigan Auto online and decided to give them a call. I had a feeling from the first call, I knew I wanted this firm to handle my case. My attorney Chris was very prompt and made sure to always be there for me when I needed him. I don’t plan on being in another accident, but if I am, I will come right back to Chris Hunter at Michigan Auto Law.

Chris and his team did an excellent job for me. Unfortunately, after my auto accident, I had three surgeries. The staff at Michigan Auto Law were very attentive, caring, and compassionate. I mean, Chris made this process totally seamless for me considering the situation I was in. My wife and I will be eternally grateful to Chris and his team.

I had the pleasure of working with Chris Hunter. Michigan Auto Law always assured me I was going to be taken care of and that I was. Chris and MAL always communicated and blew my expectation away when it was time to get compensated for my accident. Best in the business.

My attorney Chris never wavered frim what was best for me. From the very beginning, he never allowed me to feel like he was out to get something that I was not entitled to. He always answered my calls, no matter how ridiculous they were, answered my questions, and went out of his way to make sure I understood everything from start to finish. I consider myself beyond lucky to have had him as my representation, and I would recommend him, hands down to any other person who was in my situation.

My experience with Michigan Auto Law was truly exceptional. Mr. Christopher Hunter, my lawyer, was always prompt and thorough in addressing any questions or concerns I had. Even during his busy schedule, he would inform me if he was in a meeting and would promptly respond afterward. The ladies at the front desk consistently greeted me with warm smiles, creating a welcoming atmosphere. I have complete confidence in my decision to entrust them with handling my case, and I couldn't be more satisfied.

My employer referred me to Michigan Auto Law after my car accident. As soon as I reached out to Michigan Auto Law, I started working with my attorney Chris Hunter right away. Chris was thoughtful, helpful, and quick to communicate with me. He always kept me well informed, answered all of my questions, and made sure that I understood what was going on. I am very happy with my settlement and my experience with Michigan Auto Law. I would absolutely refer others to Michigan Auto Law in the future.

After I was in an auto accident, I was referred to Michigan Auto Law. They actually specialize in auto related injuries. My attorney Chris and his team were great. Chris would respond to me later at night, even when I thought he would not. I needed a quick answer on something. His assistant Eileen texted him while he was in court. He texted back and gave me a good answer, which settled me down right then and there. Chris made the best of this situation considering. I have already referred someone to Michigan Auto Law and they took great care of him and got him a great settlement as well.
