Kevin H. Seiferheld has been a trial lawyer for 20 years. At Michigan Auto Law, he specializes in litigation involving car crashes and No-Fault insurance matters, as well as municipal vehicle cases such as bus accidents and truck accidents. Kevin has argued complex legal issues before the Michigan Court of Appeals on several occasions and achieved victories for his clients every time. He has obtained millions of dollars for his injured clients, and is a tenacious fighter both inside and out of the courtroom.
A semi truck rear ended my car and I needed legal help. I had a complicated case, but Kevin Seiferheld took it without question after another attorney couldn't handle it. He listened to my medical issues and went to battle against the trucking company that was the cause of my accident. Kevin was awesome in the way he treated my husband and I. Polite and compassionate are the two traits that stand out to me most. He explained everything to me really well. He was a very wonderful attorney overall. Kevin was even able to take the case evaluation I received from my former attorney and increase it by five times the amount! His paralegal and secretary were also knowledgeable and compassionate. I also want to mention Jordan Jones. He assisted Kevin with the case and was very kind and well educated in his craft. Even Cyndi and Maureen who answered the phones were always warm and courteous. That makes a big difference when you're having a bad day and you call and are able to speak with people who are polite. The whole team was a pleasure to work with.
The emotional support was the biggest thing
By T.A., Flint October 17, 2014
I was in a rear end accident in October. I was waiting at a red light when a young lady failed to stop at a stop sign and hit the back of my car. It seemed like I hurt everything - my neck, my back, my hips, my knee. You name it, it was there. I called Michigan Auto Law for assistance with my case and to help hold the other driver responsible for what she did to me. I love this law firm. It was a positive experience all the through because the people that helped me - which were attorneys Kevin, Amy and Josh - were awesome. They explained everything to me as far as what I needed to know in detail, what documents I needed to bring, and they were just there with me along the way. Amy was the emotional part as far as having an ear that you can talk to about every single thing. I know she relayed the information to Kevin and Josh to pertain to what we needed to do, and they understood me too. Kevin put it out there, and I loved his honesty. I knew he had my best interests at heart and wasn't going to let me down. I'm extremely happy with my settlement. Yes, people always need the monetary end of the case, but for me the emotional support and knowing my lawyers supported me in moving forward in my life so I can take care of my family was the biggest thing. Now I have closure to get myself where I need to be and get my son ready for college.
Kevin took great care of me - and my entire family
By Cathy Cobb, Detroit June 23, 2014
Kevin was a great attorney. He helped me after my car accident. I knew he would take care of me because Kevin has represented numerous family members. He's a good guy. Very professional. If you have any questions, he's always there to answer them for you, along with Amy. She was also a fantastic attorney. Kevin and Amy got me the highest settlement possible and I'm happy with the way they fought for me. I would trust Kevin to take care of any my legal needs - and any legal needs of my loved ones for that matter. He has helped my family for years.
Kevin does this every day for a living, so we trusted him
By Kathryn Brown, Midland May 29, 2014
A truck ran a stop sign and hit my car. My heel was totally shattered and I had to have a plate and screws put in. I was wheelchair bound and couldn't work and I was advised to get an attorney because we were getting calls from the truck company's insurance company. My colleagues highly recommended Michigan Auto Law. Whenever I called the receptionist was warm and pleasant. My attorney's secretary Elize was also very warm and helpful. I think she's a great asset to the company. And my attorney Kevin answered all of my questions on my level because I don't know all of the attorney jargon. The accident was in Bay County and Kevin always came to us and made it convenient for us. We decided to settle the case. Kevin does this every day for a living so we trusted him. Kevin got us a settlement we're very happy with. Our other attorney Amy was extremely helpful in filling me in with the details of the case. The team took good care of me throughout my lawsuit so I could heal from my injuries.
Took all the worry away and settled our case for a great amount
By T.I., Warren February 27, 2014
I felt taken care of with Michigan Auto Law right away. I needed it because my husband, my son and I were in two horrible accidents caused by people who ran red lights. If we weren't in our van, we would have been killed, because it was a commercial delivery truck that hit us the first time. We weren't sure what to do medically because we weren't able to find a doctor who would deal with the fact that our insurance company stopped paying. It was a relief to meet our attorney Kevin Seiferheld, because he knew how to deal with my auto insurance company and help get our medical benefits covered. We felt like we were being treated like criminals by these insurance companies, even though we were the ones who got hit. We felt like no one was on our side. But Kevin was. We could let Kevin know what was going on with us and things were taken care of. He was very thorough and gave us a lot of information, which we appreciated, because we were always able to understand what was going on. Kevin took all the worry away and settled our case for a great amount.
I have referred my mother and two sisters to Kevin. He is like family!
By Dolly Cobb, Detroit December 18, 2013
Kevin has been a very helpful attorney and informative and considerate. He worked well with us. He has represented several people in my family: my mother twice who was in an automobile accident 10 years ago and then I referred my two sisters for automobile accidents. He's a person who is easy to talk to. I trust him very much and call him like he's a family member because he has taken care of my family so well.
A great team of smart, patient litigators
By Terry Hall, Carleton December 10, 2013
There are wonderful people at Michigan Auto Law. They worked hard for me after I was hurt in a car accident. Kevin and Amy were exceptional lawyers. Their legal assistant Elize was absolutely awesome. Every time I called, they called me right back. Never went a day without a call back. Kevin is a really patient, smart litigator. My case settled just before trial. What I'm impressed with more than anything is it was against one of the largest and most unreasonable insurance companies that rarely settles. But Kevin and his team were able to settle my case for a pretty amazing figure. Kevin was so impressive in the depositions that the insurance company knew they were going to get their (you know what) kicked! I also want to note that where people fail is they don't hire firms that specialize in serious auto cases and that have to real expertise necessary for complex cases like mine. Michigan Auto Law has the resources, experience and expertise. All they do is car accidents. So if they have to take a case to court because the insurance company is not cooperating, it's not a problem. That's what people in accidents have to understand. I would refer Kevin and Michigan Auto Law to everybody that I come across that had some kind of form of an accident.
Kevin treated me with respect and kindness and he made me feel as if I mattered as a person, not just a case
By Heidi Heath, Fremont November 19, 2013
The first thing that impressed me with my lawyer Kevin Seiferheld was that he was really honest with me throughout the whole process in guiding me through my lawsuit suing the trucking company that rear-ended me. That was really important to me because it made me feel very comfortable with him and confident that he was handling my truck case the best he could. He was as always prompt in answering my questions and always got back to me a in a timely manner to address my concerns. I felt very informed with all the details in my case. Kevin treated me with respect and kindness and he made me feel as if I mattered as a person and not just a case. I also found Kevin to be a source of strength and encouragement for me. He's awesome. At one point, Kevin asked me if he could be in the driver seat and I ride shotgun. We rode together as a team, beating all the pit stops. And he's definitely NASCAR quality! I was surprised at the personalized treatment that I received. It's such a large firm but it seemed like I was their only client. I have to say something about Kevin's secretary Elize too. I just love her. She's so sweet. Always willing to do whatever she could to help. No matter how bad I felt on any particular day, whenever I talked to her I always hung up the phone with a smile. I would describe her as a gentle soul with a kindred spirit. Thank you Elize. I would absolutely recommend Michigan Auto Law to anyone who was in their own accident. I am pleased with my own settlement. It was actually more than I anticipated. I'm now financially secure and I can take care of myself, all my needs and concentrate on my rehab to get better. I'm very, very grateful to Kevin and his team. Thank you so much for everything you have done for me and my case. You simply the best.
Michigan Auto Law specializes in traumatic brain injury and they care
By Carey DeCamp, Gobels October 23, 2013
My husband was hit from behind by a drunk driver doing well over 100 miles per hour. My husband's life will never be the same from his injuries, specifically his traumatic brain injuries. I knew I had to find an attorney who knows what they're doing and that's why I chose Michigan Auto Law. I could see their clients are happy and that they specialize in traumatic brain injury. I found they care at Michigan Auto Law. My attorneys have been engaged in every step of the process. Our attorneys Kevin and Amy are a compassionate team. Everybody that we worked with Jeff, Joshua, Amy and Kevin and Elize. They are very helpful and professional. My husband and I were very happy with them, especially not knowing how such a lawsuit would work out. When it's all said and done, I couldn't have asked for more. We are very satisfied.
Excellent and patient lawyer
By Donald Bernard, Lathrup Village September 12, 2013
Kevin Seiferheld that does my case for me is an excellent lawyer. He helped me after I was in a car accident with a truck. And also he was very patient with me. He walked me through things step by step so I knew everything that was happening. I don't think I could find a better attorney. Even though I like to do things my way, he listened and he guided me in the right direction where I needed to be. It made me feel much more comfortable with him. I was very happy with the result of both my cases: no fault and pain and suffering.
The settlement gave my family and I financial certainty
By John Nelson, Brighton September 05, 2013
I wanted legal assistance because after my car accident, I didn't know if I would be able to go back to work. The vehicle that hit me had no insurance coverage at all and I was really worried. I wanted help with both the medical end of it and the legal end of it. My attorneys were able to explain the rights I had under my own policy as well as the way the state insurance laws are written. Michigan Auto Law only handles auto accident injuries so they were the best to represent me. The staff and attorneys here were very helpful in the entire process dealing with the no fault insurer and explaining the legal process as we went through step by step. I was fortunate to have been represented by Larry Gursten and Kevin Seiferheld. The settlement we received because of the work of the firm gave my family and I financial certainty despite my injuries.
My settlement was as good as it can get
By John S., Lansing July 26, 2013
I was at first looking into a smaller town law firm because I am from Dewitt, Michigan. But my uncle who is a lawyer said I needed a law firm with the most experience handling serious car accident cases. That's how I found Michigan Auto Law. This is a large law firm, but they give you one on one attention even from the start. That is what sold me. My lawyer Kevin Seiferheld was very professional and confident. He told me at the beginning of my case all of the different ways it could work out and he knew from his years of experience. What I liked was that Kevin had an entire team working on my case, another attorney Amy Gubesch and his legal assistant Elize. If I had a question, Kevin would personally call me back within the hour, even on Sundays. He is super dedicated. I'm very happy with the settlement he got me. It's as good as it can get. I was treated really well here.
Kevin is most definitely a super lawyer!
By April Mills, Grosse Pointe June 19, 2013
Kevin Seiferheld was like a part of our family. He attended to my needs, returned every phone call and did everything he promised he said he would do. I was rear ended by a truck sitting at the red light. If I ever needed any paperwork sent over or any help when I was out of work due to my injuries, he was there for me and my family. He protected me and he defended me in my cases. I put a lot of trust in him and he never let me down. I would refer Kevin to anyone who is trying to battle an insurance company alone. Kevin most definitely is a super lawyer!
Took my case to trial because the insurance company was offering nothing to settle my case
By Vikin Hannosh, Shelby Township April 30, 2013
Michigan Auto Law is excellent. I cannot say enough good things about this firm. I was involved in a car accident at a red light when somebody rear ended me and here I had an entire team of lawyers and professionals representing me. My lawyers were Kevin, Josh and Amy. They deliver on their promises and I recommend them all the time. Kevin Seiferheld was a great lawyer. He took my case to trial because the insurance company was offering nothing to settle my case. Kevin wouldn't take no for an answer. We got a verdict for $1 and a half million. Michigan Auto Law was fighting for me from day one and had my back all the way. They were also very responsive and kind. Every time I called, Kevin would answer me within 24 hours. He was always available. The team was very professional and prepared to the tee. They got all of my medical expenses covered and my attendant care and household services so I could recover from my injuries. They had all the bases covered.
I never had any unanswered questions
By Gary Wells, St. Clair Shores August 17, 2012
I just referred someone to this law firm. He is kinda in the same situation I'm in with the auto accident. I told him that my attorney Kevin Seiferheld isn't going to let anybody walk all over him. He won't let anybody over talk him or treat him like he doesn't know his job. As long as you follow their lead, they will do all the work and take care of you. Compared to other law firms where you have to call them and see what's going on and keep checking. Not with Kevin and his crew. Your never left in the dark. I never had any unanswered questions. I'm happy with them.
It exceeded my expectations
By Aaron O'Connor, Clinton Township July 27, 2012
I'm extremely happy with everybody involved. Kevin was a very responsive attorney. And so was Amy. When I called, they explained anything I wanted and broke it down into common person verbiage. I was very happy with the result they got me. It exceeded my expectations. I didn't have to go to trial or anything.
His main goal was to try and get me the best settlement he could.
By Hussain Khan, Sterling Heights July 25, 2012
Kevin is a good attorney. He fights for his client. When I was having my deposition they would ask me a question and come back 20 mins later with the same question. Kevin would stop it right then and there. He doesn't fold. He fought for me and he was very good to me. When he wanted to see me or ask questions, he would call me. He called me back at all times. His main goal was to try and get me the best settlement he could. But he also cares about the actual individual. That meant a lot. I've already referred him to 3 other people. Two of those people actually switched attorneys because of the great way Kevin treats people
I feel like she's a friend now, because she was really there to support me when I was recovering and having a hard time
By Leval Thacker, Harper Woods July 28, 2011
My cousin recommended Michigan Auto Law to me after I was in a truck accident, and I've already recommended three of my other cousins to this law firm. I liked the responsiveness of this firm a whole lot. I have a closed-head injury from my truck accident, so I need special communication. My lawyer Kevin Seiferheld was really sensitive to that. He explained everything to me clearly, and he did everything he could to make me comfortable. My other lawyer Amy Gubesch was awesome. She was literally a shoulder to cry on. I feel like she's a friend now, because she was really there to support me when I was recovering and having a hard time. I could call Kevin and Amy any time and they would call me back with the information I needed about my truck lawsuit, or just to comfort me. I was in great hands with this law firm.
I would tell anyone in a minute to come to Michigan Auto Law.
By JoLee Lung, Clarkston
My attorney Kevin Seiferheld was completely supportive and kept me very well- informed throughout the tumultuous two and a half years following my car accident. Any time I had questions, he patiently explained complicated legal issues and processes to me, and repeated a lot of things back to me - because he had to. I suffered a traumatic brain injury that caused me to lose a lot of memory, including my speech, when I was hit head-on in Rochester by a semi-truck that blew a red light as I was driving to work. The truck hit me hard. It was terrifying. I remember waking up to smoke and people tapping on the glass. Aside from a closed-head injury, I was left with a broken tailbone, a herniated and slipped disc in my neck and back, and injuries throughout the rest of my body. Because of my brain injury, I often experience mood swings, lose concentration and have a hard time digesting and retaining information. But Kevin treated me with respect and never made me feel self-conscious. He was very flexible with my special needs and accommodating my schedule. Amy Gubesch, who also assisted in my auto negligence case, was very thorough and patient too. She promptly provided me with all of the information and documentation I needed and most importantly, I felt comfortable with her. Nearly three years after the truck accident, I still go to physical therapy, a psychiatrist and a neurologist. But I feel like I have a lot of support and understanding of my brain injury not only from my doctors, but from my lawyers. Because I cannot return to my full-time job as a busy restaurant manager, Kevin was able to get me in a financial position where I can continue treatment for my injuries and take care of my children without worrying about the future. I would tell anyone in a minute to come to Michigan Auto Law. I was very happy with everything, especially my attorneys. I'm relieved it's over so I can move on with my life.
