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.LOAD MORE
