Brandon M. Hewitt is an attorney in the firm’s pre-lawsuit and litigation divisions. He prides himself on fighting for his clients, and providing them with the assurance and confidence that they’re in the best hands with Michigan Auto Law. Complete client satisfaction and confidence is Brandon’s top priority.
I found Michigan Auto Law online and I called to see what they had to offer in terms of explaining my rights. The other places I called didn't respond or were not personable. That was not the case with Michigan Auto Law. The lawyers are responsive and kind and they know their stuff. There's a very professional feel at this law firm, especially with my lawyer Brandon. He is very communicative, personable and warm. I can tell that he actually cares about his clients as opposed to it only being about the case. Brandon explained the laws to me and made me feel a lot better about my recovery - and he handled my lawsuit very well. I recommend Michigan Auto Law, especially Brandon, if you want an attorney that cares about his clients and that will fight for his clients wholeheartedly.
I was in a serious rollover car accident - Brandon took it personally
By Terrie Neely, Ypsilanti September 18, 2014
Brandon Hewitt is a really great attorney. He's good with sharing information in an understandable way. He's very polite and he's very caring. I don't think you find that all the time with a lot of attorneys. He was always available and if he was in court, he would get back to me very quickly. What I liked about Brandon the most is he really cared - he cares about the person he is working for. I was in a serious rollover car accident with both of my kids in the car. The at fault driver ran a red light and had minimal insurance. Brandon took it personally. He recovered as much as he could for my settlement. I would personally recommend Brandon to friends and family. The secretaries up front at Michigan Auto Law are also very friendly and helpful.
Most importantly, Brandon listened to me
By Patty Finlayson, Plymouth September 09, 2014
Brandon Hewitt is a very understanding and personable attorney. He knows the law and how to protect me after my car accident, but it's not just about the rules. I feel like Brandon is my friend. Brandon helped me with everything I needed throughout my case. And most importantly, he listened to me. He gave me options when I wasn't sure what path I was supposed to take, and he was always there for me. Brandon made sure I understood the process and how long it was going to take. I have recommended Brandon to friends already.
Everything was handled professionally, with great courtesy and concern for me as a person
By James Tucker, Dearborn July 16, 2014
At Michigan Auto Law, everything was handled very professionally, with great courtesy and concern for me as a person. After my accident, I was somewhat nervous about seeing an attorney and once I started speaking with Brandon Hewitt, I felt he sincerely cared about me as a human being. That made me feel so much more comfortable. Everything was handled so professionally and I had great confidence in Brandon's skills. Brandon got me a settlement from the other insurance company. The settlement was great. But it wasn't about the money. When Brandon talked with me, he was concerned about my needs and what was happening with me. I was diagnosed with traumatic brain injury and I had communication issues. Brandon was patient with me and understood me. Having faith and confidence in Brandon's integrity was very important to me. He was very kind. I could tell he was very busy, but no matter how busy he was, he always took the extra time to help me and represent me to the fullest.
Brandon took care of everything for me and I didn't have to worry
By George Jacklin, Waterford May 28, 2014
My experience with Michigan Auto Law was simple. My attorney Brandon Hewitt took care of everything for me and I didn't have to worry. I wasn't going to sue at first. Then my insurance company said the vehicle that hit me did not have insurance. Yet another adjuster said they did have insurance. I had an ankle injury and I needed surgery. My biggest concern was healing and making sure I received what I was entitled to, especially since I was getting different stories from my insurance company. That was the reason I came to this law firm. I felt comfortable here all the time. Brandon contacted me when he needed information and everything went smoothly. He got me a settlement check that I'm happy with.
Injured in a car accident in a company car
By Richard Ringer, Novi May 02, 2014
I was injured in a car accident in a company car that had very low car damage and the insurance company offered zero. They didn't believe my neck and shoulder injuries could be caused by the accident. Because of Michigan Auto Law's ability to set up my case with the proper documentation and closely working with the workers compensation attorney, I was able to obtain a higher settlement among the three claims: pain and suffering, no fault and workers comp. I had a team of attorneys: Robert Raitt and Alison Duffy. They always returned phone calls and I felt they truly cared. They were also straight shooters and told me like it was. I also had Brandon Hewitt for the pre-trial. He set up the case really well to get to the trial attorneys. From the very beginning when I signed up with Michigan Auto Law, they walked me through every step of my case. It was a very precise system. Because of that I received a $750,000 settlement between my lawsuits and I had $900 worth of damage on my car. This firm knows how to deal effectively with the complexity of intertwining lawsuits between car accidents and workers comp. That's what caused my insurance company to compensate me for my serious injuries. If anyone is injured in an automobile accident, whether a personal or a company vehicle, I highly recommend Michigan Auto Law. These attorneys understand the very biased laws toward insurance companies and they will do everything they can to protect you.
It's all about me as the client
By Anita Thomas, Sparta March 07, 2014
I have a traumatic brain injury from my car accident. It's a very difficult time in my life but my attorney Brandon Hewitt helped me through it. Brandon is a great attorney because he's a very good listener. He delves into things that allows you as a client to express what you think is important. He also knows the information that is most important to your situation and knows how to get those answers from you. He provides you with honest feedback. He makes no promises that he can't deliver on and is very straightforward. I've had multiple careers and when you're dealing with professionals, sometimes people can be a little too full of themselves. Brandon does not come off that way. He is genuine. He's not coming from a place where it's all about him. It's all about me as his client - during my case and even now that it is closed.
Made sure the insurance company covered all of our medical bills
By Ronald and Katrina Gasiorowski, Hazel Park October 31, 2013
We love our lawyers Josh and Brandon. They helped us a ton. My wife and I weren't sure what to do after our car accident. It was the first time. We were hit by a 16 year old kid who was driving a permit at night. He shouldn't have been on the road at all. We were both bedridden and on top of that there was a ton of stress because we were getting called by our insurance company and didn't understand what to do. Josh and Brandon explained the law to us and our rights. They called us every week and let us know the status of the case. My doctor was worried about my car insurance covering my cast after the crash but the lawyers made sure the insurance company covered all of our medical bills. Happy with the settlement and we would definitely refer Michigan Auto Law to everyone we can tell.
Highly competent, extremely accessible and unwaveringly committed
By Darwin R., Clinton Township July 17, 2013
Hopefully I will never be in another motor vehicle accident. But if I had to recommend my family or friends to a highly competent, extremely accessible and unwaveringly committed law firm, Michigan Auto Law would be my choice. They will address your needs from a holistic standpoint. From the start of my lawsuit, my lawyer Brandon Hewitt really alleviated my anxiety because he explained the Michigan law to me, informed me and explained what was going to happen and why. He also provided me with other need to know items in order to start my lawsuit. Brandon was very pleasant, very cordial. He spoke intelligently of the lawsuit process, and reassured me on any experiences I would have on working with the insurance company. He answered questions honestly and openly, which cut against the norm of some attorneys who usually talk in legalese. He navigated me through the process without a hitch. Quick turnaround of e-mails and telephone calls. He even called me on a monthly basis to see how I was doing. Michigan Auto Law is a great law firm that helped immensely.
It was a good experience.
By Debra Stout, Stanwood April 03, 2012
I would recommend Michigan Auto law, especially with Brandon. He was always good on keeping me informed on what was going on. I was never in the dark with this firm. Because hiring a lawyer was so new to me, he was very informative with things I wouldn't have thought of, like the fact that you can hire someone to come and clean your house for you if you are injured from a car accident. Brandon helped me get all my no-fault benefits. He would be sure to let me know my options, and everything was always my decision. he was very warm to speak with. It was a good experience.
He still made me feel like my case was important and my needs were important.
By Lisa Young, Monroe
After my car accident, I originally had a local lawyer representing me and she thought I would do better if I got a specialist, because she didn't think many people would take the case in Michigan. It was a tough one that wasn't worth much because the driver that hit me was uninsured. A 16-year-old who was driving without a driver's license, without a vehicle being registered and without insurance, ran into my car when I was driving with my daughter. I was looking online to see clients' opinions and that's how I noticed Michigan Auto Law, because I wanted someone that specialized in auto law. Brandon Hewitt agreed to take my case. He did a great job as my attorney. Brandon knew what he needed to do so I would end up getting money after my extensive Blue Cross insurance co-pays were paid off. This was a great help because I had been off work for a year and a half due to my injuries and for the last six months, I had no income. Without that money, I would not be caught up right now. I probably would have ended up losing my house and my car and everything. So I'm very grateful for Brandon. Whenever I called, he would always call back. He was always very informative in telling me what was going on, what needed to be done and what his deadlines were. Even though it was a small auto accident lawsuit, he still made me feel like my case was important and my needs were important.
He took his time and didn't put me off.
By Jodi Isaacson, West Olive
I would highly recommend Michigan Auto Law. The friendliness and professionalism of the staff, as well as their expertise in auto accident cases is what made me choose the law firm after I was rear ended at a stop light and hurt my back and neck. I found the law firm online, and when I initially called with questions, one of the car accident attorneys immediately had time to talk to me. He took his time and didn't put me off. I really liked my lawyer Brandon Hewitt. He was very professional and got back to me right away with answers. I worked well with him. He is very good at what he does. My auto insurance company quit paying my wage loss and cut off my medical benefits, but Brandon took care of it. We ended up having to sue my insurance company. Michigan Auto Law did good by me.
I got full compensation that was available through the auto insurance.
By Gerald Smith, Milan
My wife and I were traveling south bound on US-23 when a drunk driver traveling north bound at 90 miles an hour crossed the median and ran us over head-on. It took 45 minutes to cut me out of my car. After my serious injuries, I went online to start searching for a lawyer to see if I could get some help. I read some of the lawyer testimonials and I decided to give Michigan Auto Law a call. I felt I made the right decision choosing my firm because they are specialized in what I need and I was treated very well. My attorney Brandon Hewitt was a real nice guy, easy to talk with, and he explained everything to me. The litigation for my auto case could have gone up to several years, but Brandon settled the lawsuit within a year, and that made me feel really good. I got full compensation that was available through the auto insurance.
I didn't know anything about the law so I put my trust in this firm.
By LaTonya Wilson, Jackson
I was stopped at a red light going to work. A semi truck didn't see me and he just crashed into the back of my car. My car, with my children in it, was thrown one block. If I would have been one light up, I would have been thrown into the intersection of Van Dyke. The driver may have fallen asleep. I needed a truck accident lawyer because I couldn't walk. My friend used Michigan Auto Law and highly recommended them. It was my first time dealing with lawyers. I didn't know anything about the law so I put my trust in this firm. I liked my lawyer Brandon Hewitt. He was nice, patient and compassionate. He explained things I didn't understand, so I knew what was happening with my case. I feel good now that my truck accident lawsuit is closed and I can start putting my life back together.
My family and I felt we were in good hands with him and Michigan Auto Law.
By Hal Baxendale, Ann Arbor
I was cut off when I was riding my motorcycle on Plymouth and Green in Ann Arbor. My humorous was shattered, my wrist was broken and now I have a brain injury and short-term memory loss to deal with. In rehabilitation following two surgeries, I was distraught and confused; and a volunteer told me Michigan Auto Law is the best law firm by far for motorcycle accident cases. I called and talked with Steve Gursten personally. I liked his demeanor and I felt comfortable with him. From there, the service I was provided was outstanding! My point of contact lawyer was Brandon Hewitt and it's necessary for me to single him out. His professionalism and sincerity was top-notch. I didn't consider myself a high maintenance client, but the times that I needed to talk to him, he made himself available and he always took his time and answered all of my questions in detail. Whether it was my experience working at a Big 4 CPA firm or as a production manager at Ford, I have worked with a number of people at various levels. I was very impressed with Brandon, who settled my motorcycle accident lawsuit with very favorable results. My family and I felt we were in good hands with him and Michigan Auto Law.
I don't have words to explain how good the entire process was.
By Stevan Simijanovic, Shelby Township
I was hit on I-696 as a pedestrian. I didn't know how the legal process worked and I was scared I would be responsible for my no-fault medical bills because I had no health insurance. Thankfully, everything about Michigan Auto Law and my attorneys was excellent. All the questions and needs I had were covered. I was amazed how good of treatment I got. Brandon Hewitt was the lawyer working my case. He was very nice, very polite and supportive. Even when I had difficult decisions to make, he was there to guide me and explain what would be in my best interest. In my physical therapy programs, I talk about this law firm and tell people to go over there. Everything with my pedestrian accident lawsuit went smoothly. I don't have words to explain how good the entire process was. I look at my lawyer Brandon and Michigan Auto Law as part of my family!
