Michigan Auto Law attorneys voted Super Lawyers 2020 and Best Lawyers in America 2021

Michigan Auto Law attorneys voted Super Lawyers 2020 and Best Lawyers in America 2021

12 Michigan Auto Law attorneys have been named Michigan Super Lawyers in 2020, 5 have been voted as Best Lawyers in America for 2021 and 1 lawyer is listed among the ‘Ones To Watch’

What makes Michigan Auto law and our attorneys so unique from all the other personal injury law firms in Michigan is that there are certain things we can say that no other auto accident lawyer or law firm can say:

  • Michigan Auto Law attorneys are the most awarded car accident lawyers in the state.
  • We have recovered more million-dollar verdicts and settlements for auto accident injury and wrongful death cases than any other law firm.
  • We are the only law firm in Michigan that truly specializes in auto accident cases.
  • We have had the largest ever truck and auto accident settlement of any Michigan lawyer or law firm.

And now I’m happy to add to this and announce that 12 of our Michigan Auto Law attorneys have been voted Super Lawyers 2020. This is a list of the best attorneys in Michigan. The Super Lawyers 2020 list is limited to the top 5% of all Michigan lawyers.

That’s more than any other personal injury law firm in the state.

I’m also proud to announce that for the 13th consecutive year our attorneys have been voted to The Best Lawyers in America 2021 list, which is limited to the top 6% of all attorneys in the U.S.

One of our up-and-coming car accident lawyers was also included in the inaugural edition of the Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch for his work in Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs. This new award from Best Lawyers in America highlights “the most promising younger lawyers in the U.S.” and recognizes them for their “outstanding professional excellence.”

Significantly, these are not awards that attorneys can buy or try to influence. These are honors based on peer selection – by asking other attorneys and judges in the state who they believe are the very best lawyers in Michigan.

Best Lawyers in America 2021 calls its list the “top legal talent” in the state, reflecting “the consensus opinion of leading lawyers” in Michigan about “professional abilities,” “quality of legal services” and “professional excellence.” As with Super Lawyers, no other law firm in Michigan that handles car crash injury and truck accident cases has this many lawyers named to The Best Lawyers in America 2021 as the very best in this area of Michigan personal injury law.

On a personal note, this is the 13th straight year that I have been named to the list of Michigan Super Lawyers and the 10th straight year that I have been included in Super Lawyers’ lists of the Top 50 or Top 100 lawyers in Michigan.

As I’ve said before, the legal awards and honors that our attorneys receive are always nice, but they are a lot more meaningful and rewarding because of what these awards and honors represent. In a legal profession consisting of too many injury lawyers and the ambulance chasers who practice law by volume to support their TV advertising, these honors and awards represent how we at Michigan Auto Law have chosen to practice law a different way.

We believe in putting clients first, stressing communication and dignity, and knowing that if you put in the work and time in cases, that the results you achieve for your clients will lead to the best settlements and verdict results. Then the legal awards and honors like these surely follow.

Caring, communication, results.

That is what all of these legal awards and honors that we receive reflect.

Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters publication, compiles a listing of outstanding lawyers in Michigan. The organization employs a tough selection process that combines peer nominations and evaluations with third-party research. Each Super Lawyers candidate is evaluated on 12 points of peer recognition, professional achievement and legal excellence.

Selection to the Super Lawyers list is limited to the top 5% of all Michigan lawyers.

“Rising Stars” status which reflects the legal excellence displayed by up-and-coming motor vehicle accident attorneys is limited to the top 2.5% of Michigan attorneys who are either 40 years of age or younger or who have been in practice for 10 years or less.

How Michigan Auto Law attorneys were selected for Best Lawyers in America 2021

The process that Best Lawyers used to identify our lawyers as being worthy of being included on the Best Lawyers in America 2021 list is based on peer-review voting by the most respected attorneys across the state of Michigan and the country which, of course, reflects our lawyers’ outstanding legal reputations and case results.

Our attorneys were recognized in The Best Lawyers in America 2021 list of the “top legal talent” not only because of the high vote totals they received, but most importantly because of the high “consensus opinion of leading lawyers” in Michigan about our “professional abilities,” “quality of legal services” and “professional excellence” in plaintiffs’ personal injury litigation, which includes attorneys who help people injured in auto accidents and truck accidents.
