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

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.

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.

I would give Michigan Auto Law a million stars if I could. I had no idea of what to do when I got hurt in an accident. I decided to get on Google. I called Michigan Auto Law. I knew that I would never call any other firm from that moment. My attorney Chris exuded professionalism. He went above and beyond my expectations. I have already recommended several people to this firm. Unlike a lot of firms, they specialize in this area. I have had experiences with other attorneys and they have never been great. My experience with my attorney Chris Hunter and Michigan Auto Law was very impressive.

Amazing team. Any questions I had got answered promptly and I couldn’t have asked for better legal representation. My lawyer was extremely helpful and gave great advice throughout my legal process. It’s not true that lawyers don’t have hearts, cause these lawyers care.

Couldn’t be happier with Chris. He worked hard for my case and got me the help I needed to get better. When I hit a bump in the road, Chris made a call and got things going again. If you need a lawyer to fight for you, Chris is your man! He has your best interest in mind and puts you first.

Chris Hunter and his team, Jordan and Eileen, made a terrible life event less awful. From day one I was kept informed about everything regarding my case. Chris checked in regularly even if nothing was happening. My questions were always welcome and answered thoroughly. Eileen kept me updated on court documents and was always kind and responsive. Chris and Jordan made the evening of the accident scene recreation photo/video shoot very pleasant, even though the weather was not so pleasant. My case had the best possible outcome and I am very grateful to Chis and his team for getting me though the last few years of dealing with the accident I was involved in. Anyone who chooses Michigan Auto Law is in good hands! Thank you!

TLDR: There are many slimy lawyers, particularly in the personal injury space. Michigan Auto Law is one of the few class-acts. These lawyers recognize that you are going through the worst moments of your life and advise what's best for YOU vs what will put more money in their wallet. In the 5+ years which I worked with the team, I could not be more pleased with my attorney Chris Hunter, or his support, Eileen Kelly and Jordan Barkley. They have truly become like family. My case lasted 5 years was due to the significant injuries requiring time to stabilize/diagnose; then, COVID started and the courts shut down for much of two years. Chris was nothing but prompt pushing the case along. When first injured, I searched online for the best law firm. With minimal digging, the choice was clear with Michigan Auto Law because of their reviews and the legitimacy of their website/advertisements. While many other practices appeared slimy from the start, even in reviews, Michigan Auto Law had an immediate upstanding appearance. It is clear they target a certain caliber of client with genuine meat to their case vs seeking misinformed clients who the lawyer can puppet their words (and life) into whatever they wish to make money. Its unfortunate that those in a lawsuit need to be careful with the appearance of everything they do. There are a lot of lawyers who would have urged me to stay out of work far longer than I did in effort to "milk" the case. Even with my doctors advising me to stay out, Chris fully supported my decision to return for my own mental state and chance to regain normalcy in my life. He cared about my quality of life and NEVER insinuated I should hold back on living just for the risk of appearing better off than I was. He recognized I was in a terrible place and needed any joy I could grab. Likewise, many lawyers ask clients to milk the extent of injuries. I NEVER felt the slightest pressure from Chris to speaker louder or more critically of my injuries. Never once did Chris encourage me to go to one of "his" doctors for hope of a diagnosis which leaned more severe than those by my selected doctors. I was proactive in researching my own care and so I did not need recommendations, but should I have wanted this, I am confident that he would have only named doctors to take the most action in improving my conditions. I received a settlement for my case. The amount was not life-changing nor did it "make-up" for all the suffering I had endured, but it did cover some adjustments needed in my life due to the accident so I am glad that I pursued. My case was complicated (multiple vehicles, multiple faults, none with sufficient liability coverages). My injuries were largely "invisible" (brain injury, PTSD, back pain, etc.). Chris was thorough in identifying insurance company spins and provided solid evidence to the contrary. The unfair truth is that if you're not missing a limb or out of work the rest of your life, its unlikely you will get millions of dollars for "pain". The guidance provided by Michigan Auto Law all around was invaluable and another reason I am glad I pursued the case. I do not believe another company would have provided so much support through my recovery, which was chaotic balancing bills, insurance, doctors, work leave, etc.; all of which were firsts for me. Overall, my experience with this company was superb. From "on-boarding" to closure, I was impressed with the level of professionalism everyone, even secretaries answering the phones, had with me. Beyond their professionalism, they are people. Chris would routinely call me, evenings and weekends, when he was aware that I may be distressed in anyway (i.e. insurance denying medical benefits, difficult medial diagnosis, general stress about suit, etc.). He made it his top priority to help me through this difficult time, all while exemplifying a top-notch attorney whose years experience are clear by all the tricks he employed to hold insurance companies s

There isn't anything my attorney could have done better! From the beginning, he made sure that I was kept informed on a regular basis. I felt like he heard me and wanted to include me on any decision. I would recommend Michigan Auto Law and specifically Christopher Hunter without hesitation!

I hired an attorney when I got into an accident. I started to regret my decision and decided to look for another firm. That’s what I found Michigan Auto Law. Everything I was lacking from my old firm, is what I found in Michigan Auto Law. My attorney Chris helped to guide me through the entire process. Chris made sure to make the focus my health and recovery. He handled all the heavy lifting. I have already referred several people from my job to Michigan Auto Law.
