Client Testimonials

Dannie Reardon, Ypsilanti
The very first time I ever visited Michigan Auto Law I knew they were different. They made me feel like family from day one. I never felt like I was a number. Josh treated me with the utmost respect. Whenever I needed anything, Josh and his team were on it right away. I felt as if my big brother was helping me with my case, not an actual attorney. That is how great Josh is. There is no doubt that Michigan Auto Law gets the credit they deserve. I will be sure to recommend others to this great, warm, and professional law firm.

Client Testimonials

Bob Danz
A friend of mine recommended that I call Michigan Auto Law after I was involved in a crash. My attorney Josh and his team really had my back when it came to my insurances company denying me certain things. He made sure to hold them accountable to get what I was entitled to. The communication was great with all of them from the very start. I am happy with the outcome of my case and will definitely be recommending Michigan Auto Law. I want to send a special thanks to Jackie and Jordan Ewald, who are part of Josh’s team and were very instrumental to the success of my case.

I called Michigan Auto Law as soon as I was able, for over a year and a half they communicated with me clearly and concisely, walked me through getting everything together for the best settlement possible. They're realistic and don't exaggerate expectations just to appease you, I would highly recommend them to anyone in my situation.

Thomas McMullen
I did not know who to call when I was first involved in a crash. I had never needed an attorney before, so I was clueless to start with. Doing research, I found Michigan Auto Law. My attorney Josh was extremely honest with me. He was very transparent and treated me like I was family member. Josh is a great guy and great attorney who helped me when I needed it the most. I have already recommended people to call Michigan Auto Law if they are injured. It’s the best place you can be!
Damon White
A friend of mine that had been in an auto accident, referred me to Michigan Auto Law. He mentioned that he was well taken care of by the firm. I decided to give them a call. I could clearly see what my friend was talking about. I was well taken care of by my attorney Josh. He was very serious, honest, and most import, very transparent. I always felt that Josh had my back and I was protected the whole time. He was always available for me even regarding questions I had that did not even concern my case at all. I am beyond thrilled with my experience with Josh and Michigan Auto Law.
Steve Amick
I felt, early on in the experience, that someone had my back, and that was essential to my recovery. Josh’s results were better than I expected, especially when I was initially so defeated and told by others that there was nothing I could do.
Michael P. Johnson
I learned about Michigan Auto Law from my mother in law. They had represented her. I had a great experience with Jordan Ewald and Josh. They were both patient, professional, and the process was smooth.
Ray Anthony Harris
My attorneys Jordan Ewald and Josh really care about people. They treated me like I was the only case they had. Jordan educated me so well about the do’s and dont’s of my case. Josh was like a pit bull and never backed down. I hear stories of people having to call their attorneys to ask about the movement on their cases. This never happened here with my attorneys Jordan and Josh. They are so great at what they do. I mean, I could go on and on. The bottom line is that you need Michigan Auto Law in your life after an auto accident. Period. I want to also send a special shout out to Brandon and Catherine for also treating me very well in the beginning of this.
Chuck Shippey
I was referred by another attorney to call Michigan Auto Law. My legal team, Josh and Jordan Ewald offered me the best representation. I never had to reach out to them, they always called me to update me on every aspect of my case. They are a dynamic duo. My plan is to recommend anyone I know to Michigan Auto Law if they are injured in a crash. They will definitely take care of you!
Nola Robinson
My attorney Josh and his team were a great help. They got back to me in a timely manner, and there was always someone available to call me back.

Prenda Pllumbaj
My son was a previous client of Michigan Auto Law. He told me that he had a great experience with the firm, so I decided to call. Let me tell you, my son was right! My attorney Josh was always very accessible to me. He made me feel that everything would be ok, and it was. I plan on referring anyone I know that is in a crash to Michigan Auto Law, just as my son did for me.
Anita Shebat
I had never ever been in an auto accident before, so I did not know what to expect. My attorney Josh did a phenominal job of explaining this entire process for me. He did it in a way that I could really understand, which I appreciated greatly. Josh’s love and attentiveness for his clients is something I have never seen. I am not treated as a client, I am treated like family. I mean this entire process has just been amazing with Josh. I am very happy with my attorney and the outcome of my case.

I called several attorney offices after my accident. When I called Michigan Auto Law, I knew this was the firm I would choose. It was evident with the very first phone call. My attorney Josh was very specific, to the point, clear, and concise. In turn, he is also thoughtful, pleasant, and had great follow through. There were no hiccups for me through the entire process. Michigan Auto Law is the only firm I will ever recommend, along with being the first and only firm I will ever call if I am involved in another auto accident.

The entire support staff at Michigan Auto Law has been simply amazing. If you want a great experience and great auto accident attorney, don’t hesitate to contact them.
Charles Lovjoy
I want to start out with what impressed me about my attorney Josh, is the fact that he stood up for me. He was even more mad when he felt that I was done wrong than I was. That is a trait that is very hard to find in people, let alone an attorney. This whole process was made as easy as it could be considering. I will always be greatful for all the hard work Josh did for me. It will never be forgotten. I definitely am planning on recommending others to Michigan Auto Law.
Dominique McKinley
My experience with my attorney Josh was unmatched. What I loved about Josh was that he was very upfront with me about my case. I really believed in him and knew I was in good hands. He made sure to keep me and everything in line, which believe me, I needed. This whole ordeal took a deep emotional toll on me. Josh was there to keep me up in my darkest times. Jordan Ewald was also definitely instrumental in helping out with the outcome of my case. I would give 10 stars if I could. I could not be more happy with Josh, Jordan Ewald, and the outcome of my case. Michigan Auto Law is the only way to go!
Debbie Buckner
I used Michigan Auto Law when I had my first auto accident. I had such a great experience with them that I decided to see them again after my second accident. If I could give them 10 stars I would. I only have eyes for one auto accident law firm, and thats Michigan Auto Law. My attorney Josh did such a wonderful job and was a joy to work with.
Ryan Conlin
The best part of my experience at Michigan Auto Law was Attorney Jordan Ewald. Her communication was great and seamless from start to finish. Jordan and Josh are the best! Michigan Auto Law comes highly recommended in my book.

My experience with Josh has been absolutely fabulous! He made sure I understood everything from A to Z. I could not have been happier! I was referred by a friend of mine. I am happy to report that I am just as satisfied and happy as she was, while working with Michigan Auto Law. I want to also note that Mike Shaffer and the entire staff has been a pleasure to work with as well. Mike made my transition to working with Josh totally seamless. Josh also made sure that my livelihood stayed in tact during this process, which was extremely important to me and my family. I cannot thank him enough.
Boban Krstic-Tomic
I was referred by a friend to Michigan Auto Law, who was a previous client of theirs. That recommendation was the best one I could have gotten.

Josh was always upbeat, diligent, and caring. I cannot thank him enough!
Willard Parris
If I could give my attorney Josh 10 stars, I certainly would. He is not just an attorney, he is more of a friend or family member. Josh was truly concerned about my well being, and my family. He definitely does what he says he will do. I mean, I could go on and on. Michigan Auto Law has a wonderful staff. The coffee room there is great!

I was absolutely uncertain with what to do after my auto accident. I called Michigan Auto Law. After speaking with the very first person, I knew that I would not be calling any other firm.

I was looking online to find an auto accident attorney. I landed on Michigan Auto Law strictly for the reviews I read. I can say that they did not disappoint. The reviews are very real. Josh and Jordan Jones were the best to work with. Right from the beginning to the end, every staff member was extremely helpful! I could not have had a better experience. I will be telling others about this great firm.
Tres Snellenberger
When I got seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, I reached out to Michigan Auto Law after reading some of their reviews from previous clients. Knowing they are specialists in auto accidents made me have a pretty good feeling about choosing them as my attorney. The reviews I read did not feel cookie cutter, they felt like honest reports of how their experiences were. Personally, I felt very well taken care of and that any and all questions were always answered honestly and with haste. Highly recommend Jeffrey Bussell and Joshua Terebelo.
Susie Hill

John Frost
I found Michigan Auto Law on line, and boy am I glad I did. I first worked with Jeff Bussell, who helped me a great deal with the beginning of my case. I then began to work with Josh.
