Attorney Chris Hunter of Michigan Auto Law

Overview

About Christopher

Chris is a highly skilled trial lawyer who is fiercely devoted to his clients’ best interests. Since 1993, he has been focusing his practice on automobile accident injury and No-Fault cases. Chris is widely respected among the plaintiff and defense bar for his many trials. He has tried nearly 50 cases to verdict. Many of Chris’ trial jury verdicts have been chosen for publication in Michigan Lawyers Weekly and the Michigan Trial Reporter. Excellent trial results allow Chris to achieve faster and bigger settlements for his clients than the many lawyers who the insurance companies know will not take a case to trial.

Client Testimonials

Adrian Beard-Wright
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

Short story - Best Lawyers in Michigan. Long Story- My family suffered from the death of our mother in an Auto Accident. The remainder of the family was my brother, sister and I. Initially, I was brought in by Gursten himself and was listened to intently. Shortly after my case was taken, I was met with Jordan Barkey and Christopher Hunter. Now.. I like to consider myself as an intellectual but these two men put me to shame. I have worked with them side by side for years and at the end of every conversation I walked away impressed and CONFIDENT that our case was in the right hands. These two KNOW the answers and these two will defend you and your case adamantly. These two found angles, applied case law and MCL'S I didn't know existed (I'm a Police Officer myself) and did everything the CORRECT way. These two (the firm as a whole) care. From even being greeted at the desk by the receptionist, I have never been challenged with a smirk, a grunt or an eye roll. It's handshakes and complimentary coffee. There have been times I was worried but they have called directly from their home, their personal free time, to speak with me and ensure we were on the right track. I'm mature enough to understand that this is a business, but never once did it feel like "just business." These ladies and gentlemen are invested and as happy as my family is that our case ended in success, I'm sad that our journey has ended. I could write a novel about Michigan Auto Law and my two new life long friends, Chris and Jordan. With that being said, don't waste any time contemplating who is best for your case. It's here.

So late so sorry. First I would like to thank Michigan auto law as a whole, love the experience. I would truly like to thank Mr. Chris Hunter for all his hard work and due diligence working on my case. It was a couple of times that I wish Chris would have been more attentive, and answer my calls. But truth be told I didn't truly understand the magnitude of his case load. But I will say he has one hell of assistance Ms. Paris Muhammad!!! From start to finish, if Chris was In trial Ms Muhammad answer the phone (if she wasn't busy) and if she was she would call right back to answer any and all my questions, which made this experience alot more bearable. Also she was very attentive to details and always so nice and pleasant to speak with. Don't know what she getting paid but give her a raise 😁. Now once we reached the point where offers are made I wouldn't want to have anyone else in my corner. I explain to Chris. H what I was trying to get back, and he kept it all the way real with me about my expectations. Let's just say not only did I win but I got more than what I was expecting. I got the boost that I needed in life and was able to start securing my kids future and have some fun and put the rest away. I will leave you guys with this. When going through a situation like this you have to remain patient and understanding. I know easier said then done, but what I learned with my lawyer Chris Hunter he will always advise you for what's in your best interests, and he's a bulldog when it comes to negotiating. And he won't stop until he reaches your goal. So Chris me and my family truly and sincerely thank you for all the work, and time you put in to get us a win I wouldn't go with no other company. Michigan auto law yall are 💯 in my book thanks!!

Had an auto accident in Michigan? Michigan Auto Law is *the* law firm you can trust to get the best legal services! I was lucky to have Attorney Chris Hunter as my legal representative in the past more the two years to help me with my case. His expertise played a critical role in the satisfactory settlement of the case. In addition, or maybe because of his expertise in the field, he was able to take the pressure and sometimes anxiety from the client, so I did not worry about the case in the long process. In the meantime, he always kept me updated, when I needed to know, with the progress of the case. Anyway, I hope it will never happen but just in case it unfortunately has happened, I strongly recommend Michigan Auto Law if you need a legal service for your case, and I wish you could have Chris Hunter as your attorney as well! -Xiangmin Zhang

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.

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.

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.
