Christian W. from Ann Arbor
After my accident, I was injured and very confused about what to do next. While I received excellent medical care, that still didn’t make amends for the upheaval that I had suffered when a driver failed to notice me in a crosswalk. After searching online through different law firms that specialize in auto-related cases, Michigan Auto Law stood out to me because of their excellent client testimonials and their reputation in the legal community. Before deciding to hire the firm, both Larry Gursten and Jeff Bussell spoke with me and answered all of the questions that I had. Everyone made the process very easy on me, and it felt like a weight had been taken off my shoulders. Meagan was very helpful as well. Ultimately, Jeff was able to resolve my case, and I am very happy with the outcome. My overall impression is that Michigan Auto Law is an exceptional firm. As a side note about the ethics/professionalism of Michigan Auto Law, they told me that I should try to handle my separate no-fault claim on my own first. I would only require legal help if my insurer tried to deny my benefits or if I decided that I couldn’t do it on my own. I was very overwhelmed at the time, but they didn’t try to convince me to hire them for my no-fault claim, which really impressed me.
Mary McMullen-Wahl
My sister researched Michigan Auto Law and referred me here. I wanted to have a firm that specialized in auto accidents, not several other types of injuries. My attorney Jeffrey Bussell was great. The best thing is that he was easily accessible to me. He explained everything in a way I could understand, all while being professional and approachable. I had never had any dealings with an attorney ever. Jeff made the best out of my terrible accident for me. I am very happy and will recommend others to this firm and to Jeff.

Jayasree Ponnaluri
I was referred to Jeffrey Bussell by a friend of my son. Jeff handled this process in a very timely fashion. The insurance company was giving me a hard time with some of my benefits. Jeff made sure to fight for my benefits and get them quicker. He was always available for me to speak with and ask questions. Without him, I would not have had such a great outcome with my case. I am very thankful for him. It only took him eight months to get it all done.
sandra carter
My husband had a friend that had a case with Michigan Auto Law. He was very happy with his experience, so I decided to contact them. Jeffrey Bussell came to see me in the hospital. He is a very compassionate attorney. I then started to work with Lenny. Lenny is very personable, straight forward, and reassuring. His assistants Brenda and Melinda helped me out a great deal making sure any paperwork was completed. Jeff, Lenny, Melinda, and Brenda were all a tremendous help to me. I am glad I listened to my friend for the recommendation. Michigan Auto Law did not disappoint.

I chose Michigan Auto Law based on videos I saw presented by Larry Gursten. The videos were extremely useful and did not contain any sales pitches. I knew that they would be the best firm for me based on the knowledge Larry had. The first time I met Jeffrey Bussell, he was fantastic. There was never a time where he was not involved. I never had to once call him for any updates. He was always on top of everything. I mean, Jeff made this whole process great for me. I had zero stress. I have already recommended two other people to Michigan Auto Law, and will continue to do so.

Kristen Carl from Warren
I had a car accident and I've never been through a lawsuit like this before. I have two Master's degrees, but learning about the law and understanding my case was a whole different world. Jeffrey Bussell was a wonderful attorney and made it all easy. He was in contact with me anytime I needed him to be. He was very helpful, very thorough. He was amazing. He got all the records needed for my case. He called me to check on me. When I called he would always either answer or call me right back. He was very comforting and assuring. He was always very clear and concise and made sure I understood everything that was going on. I just want to thank Jeff for everything he did to help me after my car accident. I really trust him.
Melissa from Wyandotte
I worked for attorneys for over 20 years, and where a lot of firms will do a blanket standard of all kinds of cases - slip and falls, dram shop, divorce, criminal - Michigan Auto Law has always been known to be the firm to go to if you're ever in any kind of serious auto accident, because that's the only type of work that they specialize in. In working with and Jeff Bussell, I have seen that the lawyers here are experts in the field, in terms of trucking accidents and really being knowledgeable of the no fault laws that continue to change. I have learned the hard way that insurance companies don't want to pay money out, and they take advantage of the average lay person not knowing all of the small print on the insurance policies. You pay all these high premiums, but when push comes to shove, insurance companies don't want to pay for the benefits that are owed to injured people. When I approached Michigan Auto Law for help, I was under the impression that plaintiff attorneys are out to make a quick buck. But I've seen attorneys here have a humanitarian quality and truly want to help their clients who are having a tough time getting their no fault benefits. Unfortunately, the way the economy is in Michigan, it's nice to see people standing up for the little guy.
Alan Lewis from Birmingham
A great group of attorneys! Really personally work with you to help recover from a car accident!
Heidi Patton from Howell
A lot of people wouldn't put the words lawyer or sensitive in the same sentence. But Jeff Bussell from Michigan Auto Law is just that. He was my first point of contact at the auto accident law firm. He was very professional, concise and detail-oriented. But I really appreciated the sensitivity he showed when I had to get photos of my injuries. He was very concerned with my comfort and had his female secretary take the pictures. I was having comprehension issues from my auto accident, and he was also sensitive to that. He would give me short, understandable questions so I still knew exactly what was going on with my lawsuit. I would highly recommend Michigan Auto Law, and Jeff in particular, for anyone who has been in a crash. My car accident lawsuit was not long and drawn out, and my attorney was very diligent in speaking the legal language on my level. Jeff made it clear to do what he could in his power to get me all the compensation that was available, given the driver who hit me was poorly insured. It was nice to know this since I was in the hospital with severe back injuries.
Wayne Moll from Grand Haven
I never dealt with an attorney before, but Michigan Auto Law exceeded my expectations. I was treated very good. I sent out an e-mail inquiring about my case late morning on a Friday, and just an hour later, I had a call back from an attorney. He told me exactly what the Michigan auto law was and what my no-fault rights were. I was happy with the way he spoke to me and how quickly he responded. This is the way he handled my auto accident lawsuit, very prompt and to the point. I would tell other car accident victims that even if you are hesitant or scared, do not be afraid to contact Michigan Auto Law. This firm is full of expert attorneys who know how to respect people.
Max Misekow from Clio
I had never dealt with an attorney before and I chose Michigan Auto Law based on the great things my friend told me. Whenever I called, I was always either able to talk directly to my attorney Jeff Bussell or he would call me back. I definitely felt comfortable having this specialized law firm handle my case, and good communication was a huge part of that.
Catie Earle from Royal Oak
I called Michigan Auto Law when I was in a rear-end car accident. Even though I didn't have a case, Jeff Bussell took a ton of time answering all of my questions about my no fault coverage and my car damage. He was patient and spoke to me in terms I could understand. And his advice helped me through the ordeal. I've dealt with other attorneys before, but this firm, from the secretaries on back was by far, the most kind, helpful and respectful I've encountered. If I ever need help in the future, I will definitely look to Michigan Auto Law.
Jane Davison from Traverse City
Even though I didn't have a case or legal proceedings for my motorcycle accident, an attorney at Michigan Auto Law took time to answer my questions concerning the motorcycle laws and insurance in Michigan. I thank them for that.

Danielle Rosenberger from Vermontville
Jeff Bussell was an outstanding attorney. He really fought for me. He followed up with everything he said he would do. Jeff got everything for my settlement and my no fault benefits. I didn't have to talk to any of the insurance people, which was great. He handled it all for me. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney.
B.G. from Kalamazoo
I was referred to Michigan Auto Law because they are known for handling commercial truck accidents. We were rear ended by a semi truck. I wanted to know, what were the options? What do I look for? What do I expect? I had a very positive experience with Jeff Bussell. Jeff provided some very sound legal advice that answered all of my questions and helped me when I was getting nowhere with my insurance company. He sincerely wanted to help me. It wasn't just a business transaction. I couldn't have asked for more from an attorney.
Jon Hurtado from Bloomfield Hills
I've called Jeff on matters regarding accidents that my children as young drivers were involved in. He gave me expert advice that was right on. His advice and knowledge comforted me, guided me in the right direction, and helped me resolve my legal issues. I greatly appreciate Jeff's help.
Quintez Harris from Clinton Township
I was in a car accident and it was work related. I didn't know what to do until I found this firm. This firm is very thorough, answered all of my questions. They always kept in contact with me. Jeff B. did a great job telling me things that I needed to do and giving me advice. The staff is very friendly and it helped me and my family out. That is the most honest way I can put it into words.
Roger Urso from Clinton Township
I had serious traumatic brain injury after an accident and I just wanted to feel better. Jeff Bussell, an attorney from Michigan Auto Law helped me a lot. He is awesome. He's actually a lot like me - quick and to the point. But he's also reassuring and always straight with me. Jeff made me feel comfortable with the whole process of my injury lawsuit. He was very helpful, honest and got the job done.
Steven Clay from Detroit

Brenda Johnson from Saginaw
This law firm is quick. They helped me right away. As soon as I needed help, they took down all of my information and made sure I had all of the information I needed. We got to come in right away, we got to talk to Jeff our attorney personally, to a paralegal. We felt like he cared what was going on with us. He was so thorough and friendly. I felt like I had known him for years. Jeff let us know what to expect, about the timing and investigation. Jeff made sure that we did what we had to do. It really paid off because they cared about me extraordinarily.
Paul Garfield from Troy
I liked the fact that Jeff was willing to find the answers to intricate questions. I was trying to find the validity of the auto accident in Michigan. I felt like he made sure that I had the correct information. I like the way he followed up by sending e-mails. You don't find that with a lot of attorneys. Jeff really knows his stuff.
Heidi Heath from Fremont
Last summer I was rear ended by a semi. I found Jeff Bussell when I needed an attorney, and he was awesome. He returned all of my calls in a timely fashion. He answered all of my questions about everything - my insurance coverage, my medical coverage, my rights in my truck accident lawsuit. And treated me like he cared about my case and cared about me. I feel very safe with Jeff. I would still be spinning my wheels right now if it were not for Jeff. I really give him a lot of credit for digging deeper to advocate for me. I can't even say enough to thank him.
Tom Vigna from Shelby Township
Jeff answered all of my questions and explained how my lawsuit will work and how the system works or doesn't work sometimes. It's important to know both. He is friendly and approachable. If I knew someone in an accident, I would absolutely tell them about Jeff. He's just very personable, knowledgeable and a very competent attorney.
V. Williams from Warren
I was rear-ended on the I-696 when I was leaving work. A commercial truck hit me. I was in a lot of pain, and it was the first time I had gotten in a serious truck accident. When I called Michigan Auto Law, any concerns I had were laid to rest. Jeff Bussell was my first attorney. He was great - he returned calls and answered all of my questions. was my next attorney. He was great too. I knew Ian was looking out for me. He walked me through all of the steps of my truck accident lawsuit. My insurance company was giving me problems with my lost wages - they stopped them completely for no reason. Ian was fighting for what I was entitled to by law. We just settled and I couldn't be more satisfied. I felt like Michigan Auto Law was specialized in auto injuries, and that's why these attorneys were able to handle my case with such ease. I would definitely use and recommend Michigan Auto Law (as I already have).
