Tom was accessible and patiently answered my questions. He provided options on how to proceed. Many thanks for his help.
On a beautiful day in 2017 my life changed in a way I never would have expected. My son and I were on our way home from an appointment and hit from behind and pushed into another vehicle. You never think about these things until it happens to you. After a year my insurance company would not pay for the medical or my leave and I was still getting treatment. I had no idea what to do. A close friend referred me to Brandon Hewitt with Michigan Auto Law. I was so scared dealing with so much. From the first phone call I felt finally someone was going to help. Over the next few years Brandon, Tom, Jeremy, Tonya and Lori worked so hard for me and my children. Many times I wanted to give up and Tom gave the reassurance to just take care of me and he would do the rest and he did! Truly there are no words to express how grateful I am to you all. Thank you for your dedication and hard work, for truly caring about me and my well being. Michigan Auto Law is Incredible!!! Thank you
