“It wasn’t just writing memos and drafting briefs at Michigan Auto Law. Mentoring is provided by some of the most successful personal injury trial attorneys in Michigan. They encourage students to attend settlement conferences, case evaluations, depositions and even trials. As a law clerk, I worked on real cases, with real people and the work I was doing was more important than I ever imagined. Michigan Auto Law provides “real world” experience outside the classroom – invaluable for any future trial attorney.”
– Roger J. Thon, Esq., former Michigan Auto Law clerk
Roger Thon has become Michigan Auto Law’s 18th lawyer. He said during his clerkship, Steven Gursten, worked very closely with him, and had zero reluctance assigning him important projects on large cases. He also said Steve always offered a first-hand, personal evaluation of his work product, and was generously forthcoming with constructive criticism and invaluable advice on auto negligence law and becoming a great trial attorney.

Frankly, plaintiff personal injury litigation has not traditionally attracted the top law students. But the attorneys of Michigan Auto Law want to change the perception that it’s somehow more noble or desirable to represent an insurance company or big corporation than it is to help ordinary people. That’s another reason our law firm looks to hire some of the very best and brightest law students as law clerks.
And when they have demonstrated a commitment to helping people, we hire them.
