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.
The process was stress free. Jeffery was very thorough explaining everything. Happy with my outcome. Thanks so much
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.

Jeff stayed in contact with me through the whole case. He worked hard for my case, well above my expectations.
I lost my son in a motorcycle accident. I could not get anywhere with the insurance company, so I decided to seek legal help. I was referred to Michigan Auto Law. Jeffrey Bussell, my attorney, has been amazing throughout this entire process. He has gone above and beyond my expectations. I had another issue not related to this incident. Jeff was able to give me a referral to an attorney for that. The referral I received was great as well. I am very pleased with my experience here at Michigan Auto Law!
From the very beginning, Michigan Auto Law had someone to come to my home to get things started, as I could not go anywhere at the time because of my injuries. Jeff is a great attorney. He answered all of my questions. Everything was explained to me very thoroughly. I am very happy with Jeff and the staff at Michigan Auto Law.

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.
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.
from Birmingham
A great group of attorneys! Really personally work with you to help recover from a car accident!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
from Warren
To have an attorney on my side who was looking out for my needs was great
from Farmington Hills
Oh boy did you put me in great hands. Jeff is the man. I can't say enough amazing things about how he prioritized me, honed in on the exact issue and gave me the strategies to overcome this overzealous claim from my insurance company for attendant care. Spot-on!
from Wyoming
Jeff was great to work with, his promptness and passion for helping our son was amazing. We would recommend him in the future to anyone who needs help with a Michigan auto legal case.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
