Karen Sinchak
I did a Google search and came across Michigan Auto Law. I wanted to go with a law firm that did not advertise on television. I initially first spoke with Brandon and Larry. An extensive interview with Larry happened. I knew this firm had the utmost dignity, so I chose it. The main attorney I worked with was Kevin. When I met him, I knew he was great match for me. I felt so comfortable with him. He explained the entire process and had me well prepped throughout the entire ordeal. I am very happy with Kevin and my experiences with him. I want to add that his team members Elize and Amy were very helpful in my time of need as well.
Jacqueline Center and Donald Bates
Larry Gursten and Jeffrey Bussell were great at Michigan Auto Law. Whenever we had questions, Jeffrey and Meagan were very strong and supportive of us. This was of the utmost importance. We plan on recommending others to this law firm. They have great people taking care of their clients.
Cindy Schwarz
Larry and Brandon were great from the very beginning. I then began to work with Kevin. He was always very attentive and professional. The experience with Michigan Auto Law was perfect. This firm is very personal. They make you feel as if you are a family member. I cannot say enough great things about Kevin and his team, which includes Elize, Jordan, and Amy, who have all been so helpful. Quite frankly, they have left me speechless, as this experience was so great!

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.

Benita Martinez
I started to look up law firms on line after my accident. I first spoke with Mr. Larry Gursten. I knew at that time I was in the right place. Mike, Brenda, and Lenny all did an amazing job with my case. Lenny and Brenda were very caring, professional, and compassionate. They explained every aspect of what would happen with my case. They were both there to soothe and help me anytime things got stressful or rough for me. I can't say enough great things about them and Michigan Auto Law.
Krystal Clark
To start with, I had an accident about three years ago, I made the mistake of hiring a "tv" lawyer. Boy, was that the wrong decision. Unfortunately, in June of 2016, I was involved in another accident. This time I decided to do my research. Upon my research, I came to discover Michigan Auto Law. From the moment I spoke to Larry, I knew I was in the right hands. Moving forward, Alison and Bobby took very good care of me. The professionalism they displayed was unmatched. My questions and concerns were answered so quickly. That alone impressed me. Alison and Bobby are a great team!

Candice Franklin from Grosse Pointe Farms
Michigan Auto Law is a great firm. Everyone here displays the utmost respect for their clients. Josh, Larry, and Jeff were all very caring. Cyndi and Maureen were also very nice whenever I contacted the firm. Josh was always available for any of my concerns. I am very happy with Josh and the outcome of my case.
Matthew Ost from Saline
I found Michigan Auto Law on the internet and had a great experience. I started with Mike Shaffer and then spent some time with Larry Gursten directly. I finally worked with Josh Terebelo in litigation and could not have been more pleased. Everyone was kind and accommodating, communication was great, and I will be happy to recommend friends and family here in the future.
Sheryl Muncy from Commerce Township
When I first came to this firm Brandon was great. He put my mind at ease about my case and assured me every step of the way. I consulted with Larry as well, who was also extremely knowledgable. Robert and Alison were amazing. They always responded quickly to any calls or emails when I needed assurance. I have already recommended quite a few people to Michigan Auto Law. The entire staff here is wonderful. I had total confidence in everyone here at the firm. Alison went out of her way to make sure I was taken care of. She really fought for me.

Reginald Murphy from Canton
I went on the internet and called Michigan Auto Law. I saw Brandon the very same day. He was very professional, which lead me to choose this firm. Brandon was very clear and direct about my case and has always been spot on. Larry Gursten actually helped me with my case as well. His expertise got results for me. I began to work with Leonard. The first time I met him, it was as if I had known him my whole life. He was amazing at returning calls and emails if I had any questions or concerns. Leonard is very sharp, all the while defending and educating me about my auto accident. Overall, the entire staff at Michigan Auto Law has been amazing.
Tami Hayward from Canton
Tom James, Michele, Robyn, Jeff B, Larry G all could not have been more gracious, compassionate or professional. Each interaction left me feeling better, safer, protected. They have very high standards and it shows. I am so grateful for you taking me under your wing. Thank you! I will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen!
Samaa Al-Taweel from Warren
Alison, Bobby, and Tom are all great. Initially when I contacted the firm I spoke with Larry. He was wonderful. The best thing I like about this firm is the response time from Alison and Bobby if I had any questions. It was just amazing how they would respond to me so quickly even on off hours and weekends. I have already recommended a friend to this firm. I am happy with the outcome of my case.

I initially spoke with Larry Gursten. His patience with me was the reason I chose this firm. Larry made me feel extremely comfortable with his expertise and knowledge. I cannot say enough wonderful things about him. He made me feel like a person and not just a number. I work in the legal field so I know the stories of attorneys not returning calls to their clients. This was not the case with my attorney Josh. He communicated with me in a very timely manner. Anytime I had questions or concerns he was quick to assist me. Josh was very assertive in his fight for me. Michigan Auto law is THE place to come if you have been hurt in an accident. I have already recommended a friend to this firm and will continue to do so.
Johnnie Meeks from Warren
This is a firm that believes in communication with their clients. Robin, Michelle, and Tom are a powerhouse trio. Michelle and Robin were very instrumental to me as well. They were very empathic concerning my injuries. Tom has spent a lot of time with me and exuded patience to the utmost. I have never felt rushed or brushed to the side. All lines of communication were open for me. They care about their clients. I have, and will continue to refer people to this firm. I want to also give a thanks to Larry Gursten who offered to help me and gave me his personal phone to contact him if I had any questions or concerns.
Myles Ross from Warren
Kevin is very attentive. I was referred to this firm by another attorney which speaks volumes. Kevin is very thorough with all of the information he provided me with. Elize his secretary was also extremely helpful. I also spoke with Larry. He is a super nice guy and discussed my case with me advising me how things would work. I have already referred several people to this firm and will continue to do so if they are ever injured in an auto accident.
Jen Kotimko
I wanted to take a moment to write about just how happy my husband Jeff & I are with the way everything went at Michigan Auto Law. We have never gone through this process. It was nice to be represented by a place that genuinely had me & my family’s best interest at heart. I actually told my lawyer Tom James when we were wrapping up our case that the only thing we'd miss in this process was him. He is a very smart, hardworking, very personable individual. He never once was cold or "all business". He treated Jeff & I like we mattered, and genuinely had our best interest at heart. We greatly appreciate all of the hard work, phone calls, & meetings that went into this process & genuinely appreciate being treated so kindly EVERY SINGLE TIME we interacted with anyone at your firm. Something as simple as Michelle, our paralegal, calling me to discuss things, every single time, I was always greeted with a pleasant tone, always asked how I was doing, how I was feeling....small gestures such as that made such a difference. We've spoken volumes to our families about the character of the individuals at Michigan Auto Law, & will not hesitate to recommend you. Again, thank you to Larry Gursten, Robin, Michelle & Tom for all of the hard work and dedication that you all put into making sure that Jeff & I were treated fair & right.

Steven Klein from Clarkston
A guy who had two drunk driving convictions smashed into me with his commercial truck. Roughly… I got approved for disability three weeks before the accident so it was a tough case for that reason. Some of the same injuries they gave me disability for were exacerbated by the truck accident, like my traumatic brain injuries. I went to a few attorneys before I met with one from Michigan Auto Law. One told me her father wrote the book on the No-Fault laws and she wouldn’t even take the case because of the difficulty for getting approved for disability. But the attorneys at Michigan Auto Law went to bat for me and did a tremendous job. As far as I’m concerned, if I had anyone in the world to refer to I would refer to them. They have done an amazing job and so has the paralegal Laurie. I have a lot of attorney friends and of all the people I know, I think Michigan Auto Law is the best. Period. No one compares with the treatment I received. With the professionalism and all of the things I’ve had to do to put my life together after this accident, like driving again. I was able to buy a nice home and the settlement they got me is enough so I can be taken care of for the rest of my life. Again they did a nice job and the firm is wonderful. I also had the opportunity to speak with Larry Gursten the head of the firm face to face. Everything has been wonderful with the results. I can’t be happier. I would positively refer any of my family members and friends to your firm. I really enjoy having a firm that’s for me with face to face time in person, not just hearing a voice over the phone. I don’t know that I could ever show enough gratification.
Derek from Allen Park
Sometimes people are intimidated by lawyers or think that lawyers are just people out there looking to make some money off of you. But everyone I interacted with at Michigan Auto Law constantly asked my how I was doing personally before getting focused on the monetary side of things with my case. The experience was focused on my well being and helping me out. I noticed this when Larry Gursten drove out to my house to see my parents and I. He would call me on my cell phone and made himself available to me anytime I needed to talk to him. He is the founder of the firm, but he still wanted to be available to me for anything I needed. Tom James handled my case. He was very encouraging as well with helping through the process and knowing what to expect in legal proceedings like the deposition. Tom was really helpful in giving me an understanding of what was going on - what the different scenarios were and possible outcomes. He was very knowledgeable and I know Tom and his team, which consisted of his awesome secretary Robin and his knowledgeable paralegal Michele, did way more than I saw. They took the ball and ran with it, but if I needed absolutely anything, getting in touch with them was never a problem. I'm very pleased with the outcome of my case. I wouldn't expect anything but the best from Tom and this firm. They showed that they all worked extremely hard for my settlement. I'm extremely thankful for how it will help me down the road with my medical needs.
Kim Nye-Murad
I was referred to Michigan Auto Law by my boss at the time of my accident. He was another extremely happy customer. From him, I knew I would be in good hands. I was rear ended and had some pretty bad spine injuries. This firm helped guide me through the insurance system as I healed and pursued my lawsuit. First I had a consultation with Larry Gursten, who explained everything and comforted us. Then Jeffrey Bussell helped me with my insurance questions and my No fault case. He made all the time in the world for me. I had his cell phone number. He would call me back at all hours, even if he was on a date with his wife! From there, we had Alison on our case. She did a great job returning my calls and answering questions too. This is a big firm, but you have your very own legal team. The lawyers answer your questions and are there for you same day. They kept me up to date. Alison bent over backwards for me. I had a stack of medical bills and my insurance company didn't want to do anything, even though that was their duty since the lady who hit me was uninsured. The insurance company also didn't want to pay my lost wages. Alison fought the insurance company and made sure they paid what I was entitled to. She also got me 100% of what I wanted for my pain and suffering settlement. I'm extremely happy. Alison did magic. I've never seen lawyers like this firm. Michigan Auto Law is professional and make you feel like you're at home.

Kelly Saldana from Brownstown
Larry Gursten was our attorney. He handled a case for my husband's closed-head injury. Larry is just so understanding and compassionate. He was very understanding of the problems that myself and my children were going through after the car accident and during my husband's medical treatment. He always returned all telephone calls and he made an amazing settlement for my husband, myself and for our children. I would highly recommend Larry to anyone seriously injured in an auto accident.
Helen Gorecki from Ypsilanti
My attorney Larry Gursten treated me like a daughter and he fought for me like I was his daughter. He never gave up - he just wouldn't quit. I had my doubts in the beginning about the whole lawsuit process - nothing ever goes my way. But these lawyers are smart and work hard and the results in my settlement were better than expected. Now I just bought my house and paid for it in cash. I would recommend Michigan Auto Law to anyone. The whole clan is wonderful, from the front desk to the attorneys court room. You are never a number, a car crash or just a name. They really care and they are always working for you.
James Fairley from Jackson
Steve Gursten and Tom James are the best of the best truck accident lawyers. Nobody has more passion and knowledge about Michigan auto laws, and this is exactly what I needed after I was injured in a truck accident. Combine that with compassion for their clients and ability in the courtroom, and they are unbeatable. Steve and Tom make you feel like a member of their families, which you are during a trial. As far as I'm concerned, they did what my wife and I thought was impossible. They found and won a record judgment in a county not known for large judgments - Jackson County. Thanks again to Steve Gursten, Tom, Larry, Elize, Laurie and all the rest of the staff of Michigan Auto Law, who had a part in this great victory. Thank you very much, Jim and Kim Fairley.
Helen Massingo from Monroe
My lawyer Larry Gursten and Michigan Auto Law team certainly know what they are doing. They did a wonderful job for my son after he was injured in a car accident. They are truly compassionate and have helped in more ways than legal. We both trust them very much and would highly recommend them.
Kesha Gibson from Taylor
It's very hard for me to trust people, and I was very skeptical. The moment I met my attorney, Larry Gursten, I knew immediately that I could trust him and felt the same when I met my other attorney, Steve Gursten. I thank God for them every day. They are truly beautiful people. I couldn't have found better attorneys.
James Gingrich from Monroe
When I was hit as a pedestrian, everyone fell down on me - everyone. No one was there for me except Steve Gursten and Larry Gursten, and my doctor. I have suffered through horrible experiences - but this car accident and the aftermath was much worse. Working with the Gurstens made things painless. They were the first break I had in a long time. They got me the best settlement possible. I can't say enough about Larry, Steve and the whole team. I would recommend these attorneys to anyone (and have several times).
Mike Constantini from Fenton
When Larry Gursten took over my case as my lawyer, it wasn't cut and dry and he took a risk at the beginning. I wasn't sure how it would go, but we settled for more than we thought. I am very pleased with how Larry and the other attorneys at Michigan Auto Law handled everything. I've been meaning to write a note to tell them how much I appreciate them. They were always responsive to my calls and questions, and I really felt as though we were a team.
James Diaz from Caro
Larry Gursten, Steven Gursten and the whole Michigan Auto Law office did an outstanding job for my family. They were concise, personable and put my needs first. They were very communicative and let me know about any changes in my case almost instantly. When it came to the car accident settlement, they thought of my daughter's needs first and how to plan for the future. I've never dealt with a better group of professionals and attorneys.
Steve Bixby from Livonia
I was proceeding through a green light and a semi truck ran a red and crashed into me. A family friend and renowned attorney referred me to Michigan Auto Law and specifically, Steve Gursten and Larry Gursten, because they handle more truck accidents than any law firm in Michigan. Larry made us feel very comfortable because he was so competent. When we didn't know where the road was going, he led me and my wife. He was just so dead-on with his information and able to guide us. He took care of everything and was there to answer questions. It was very important that Larry made us feel comfortable and that everything was going to be alright, because my wife was uncomfortable with pursuing a lawsuit. Larry knew so much about my injuries, too. I felt like I was talking to a doctor at times. He made it feel like it was more about me than a lawsuit. Steve Gursten was just as amazing. He explained everything and he makes you feel very comfortable. Our insurance company would play their games throughout this process. We would turn to Steve and he took care of it. The defense tried settling for much less than what Steve thought my personal injuries were worth. I had a closed-head injury, memory loss, speech difficulties and neck and lower-back problems. Steve fought for us - hard. I would absolutely refer Steve Gursten and Larry Gursten to anyone trying to recover from a truck accident. These truck accident attorneys made us feel like family. We wouldn't have made it through this process if they hadn't made us feel so comfortable.
Dan Johnston from Grand Rapids
I was in a head-on collision on M-37 in Grand Rapids and sustained a head injury, a traumatic brain injury, neck disc and muscular injuries. I turned to Michigan Auto Law when my auto insurance company refused to pay my no-fault benefits, period. We had medical bills in the tens of thousands of dollars that were due, and we didn't have the means of paying them. We knew we weren't being treated properly. There truly appeared to be a wonderful interest and show of support from the lawyers at Michigan Auto Law that my family and I did not receive from the first personal injury attorney we visited. It was a completely different attitude and a statement of action steps by senior partner Lawrence Gursten that was immediately going into place. My lawyer Tom James was fantastic. After initially talking with Tom, it was obvious he was the detailed, in-the-trenches lawyer that was really going to take care of our auto accident case. His knowledge of law really brought us to what I consider a very good situation - getting our medical benefits covered and a great sidebar settlement. I'm confident we made the right selection by choosing Michigan Auto Law to handle our no-fault case.
John Hawkins from Grand Rapids
Another attorney referred me to Larry Gursten. He said Larry and the Michigan Auto Law team were the best in Michigan for auto accidents. They get results and my settlement was much better than I expected. I felt very comfortable with them and I recommend them highly.
Martin Doyle from Muskegon
Larry Gursten is a great attorney - he really does care. He's called many times just to check in to see how I'm doing. Recovering from a truck accident has been a very stressful time, and Michigan Auto Law is taking some of the stress out of it. They really listen and tell me how to handle things every step of the way. I was referred to Larry from another well-known attorney, because he specializes in auto law and trucking accidents. I've been 110 percent happy with them and I've already referred four people their way.
Yolanda Brown from Traverse City
Larry Gursten is more than an attorney - he is there when you need him.
Ed Falkowski from Gladwin
Larry Gursten, Steve Gursten and the whole Michigan Auto Law team did a great job for me. I had never worked with an attorney before and expected them to be stuffy. Instead, the whole team was personable and professional, and I trusted them right away. They always called right back - Larry even called me from vacation. They know what they're doing and are the most down-to-earth attorneys I could imagine.
Tammy Hutchison from West Olive
I was rear-ended by a semi-truck at a stop sign in Grand Haven, Michigan and sustained a concussion, whiplash and some head trauma in the accident. My husband found Michigan Auto Law on the Internet and we were drawn to them because Larry Gursten and Steve Gursten are the best car accident lawyers in the state of Michigan. We had never gone to an attorney, so we didn't know what to expect. Larry was very thorough, so we understood exactly what was going on with our case and its timing. was also our attorney. Every time we got together, he seemed to be very interested in us - not just our case - but how we were doing. Steven Gursten was the same way. But one person from the Michigan Auto Law team who really helped me was our paralegal, Joyce Luxon. During the time of my car accident case, my daughter died. Joyce was very compassionate and sensitive to my needs, as my injuries worsened from stress and depression. I never expected such kindness from a law firm. Regarding our case results, I'm very, very happy with the outcome. And the things going on in my life, like dealing with chronic pain, have been taken care of. We have already recommended Michigan Auto law to people we know. It was the best choice possible for a Michigan personal injury law firm because of the expertise and compassion they provided us.
Judith Brown from Harper Woods
My 87-year-old mother-in-law was driving to her retiree luncheon in Harper Woods. When she was stopped at a red light on Kelly Road, a large semi-truck rear-ended her and killed her instantly. The loss of my mother-in-law was devastating for the family. We chose Michigan Auto Law to handle her wrongful death case because the firm exclusively handles Michigan auto accident cases, and they have more accolades and successful cases than any of the competing firms. Even better, our lawyers Larry Gursten and Steve Gursten were very compassionate throughout the entire case. They were always available when we had concerns and they truly helped us understand the complicated legal process following a truck accident, with all of the given insurance issues. Some lawyers we interviewed told us that the loss of an 87 year old wasn't worth much, but Larry and Steve got us almost every penny there was from the trucking company's insurance carrier. I would refer Michigan Auto Law to my friends and family or anyone whose life has been turned upside down by a truck crash.
C.K. from Macomb Township
When I was first injured in a car accident, I thought it was important to find a lawyer that spoke Arabic and shared my cultural background. However, I soon realized Michigan auto laws and the no-fault act is so specialized and complicated, that it became more important to hire an expert. In working with Larry Gursten and Steve Gursten, I was delighted to find true auto accident experts who were willing to fight for my rights and help me recover. But beyond being specialists in their field, the Gurstens and the whole staff at Michigan Auto Law were patient, polite, responsive and understanding. Larry Gursten even returned my calls at night or on weekends. They were easy to talk to and incredibly respectful. I also never felt like I was being rushed through the legal process. I could not have asked for more from a law firm. I would refer loved ones and friends to Michigan Auto Law, because I know they will be treated with the utmost respect, caring and competence, like I was.
Gina Cucchiara from Port Huron
My lawyer Steve Gursten is very knowledgeable about auto law and what was involved with my type of case. Steve and the entire office at Michigan Auto Law are very personable. They are wonderful. Steve and Larry Gursten are truly compassionate, and return calls within hours - not days. The results of my settlement were way beyond what I expected. I gave one figure, and Steve shot higher. I have been very happy with this law firm, and will definitely continue referring auto accident victims their way.
Jennifer Barnett from Shelby Township
I was very impressed with my lawyers Larry Gursten and Steve Gursten right from the start - their expertise, knowledge, compassion - everything about them. The whole law firm was so supportive and responsive every step of the way. Everything was dealt with right then; they never put things off or prolonged anything following my car crash. Their honesty meant more to me than anything else, and it's so hard to find in people anymore. Everything was completely up front - even stuff that's hard to hear - they were honest about everything with very clear expectations. I knew they were giving their all and doing their very best for me - and my settlement was better than expected. I just can't say enough about these guys or thank them enough. Michigan Auto Law is only law firm I would trust.
Jasmine Hussain from Macomb Township
Michigan Auto Law went above and beyond my expectations, that's for sure. After my car accident, I was having issues trying to find a lawyer that would take on my case. A lot of other lawyers that I spoke to felt there was no case. When I came to Michigan Auto Law, immediately I was helped. Even by the owner Larry Gursten. He phoned me himself and guaranteed that with as my attorney, I would be taken care of. He reassured me. I appreciated that he would take the time with me. Once I spoke to Larry, I was very comfortable. As soon as I was on board with Ian, it was no questions asked. He took on my case, gave me the time frame and everything went smoothly. Ian's paralegal Laurie is amazing. Any questions I had, they always had answered. Any time I called, they always called back right away. I didn't feel left out. I was part of everything so I knew what was going on. I'm very happy with the settlement. I didn't expect to get so much. It was great. I already have been recommending this firm.
Janice Davis from Farmington Hills
When I came to Michigan Auto Law with my problems after my car accident, the attorneys started to work on it and resolve it immediately. I spoke to Mr. Larry Gursten, the founder of the firm, first. The ironic part is I had an attorney prior to Michigan Auto Law that was assigned to my case but wasn't doing a good job. I decided to switch because I knew the representation I was getting wasn't good, and if I came here I would have everything I needed. This firm specializes in car accidents and they have a fabulous reputation. Joshua Terebelo was my attorney. He told me from the very beginning what he was going to do. And he followed through with everything. He responded to all my calls. His secretary always was helpful too. I felt comfortable and candidly sure I was being told all the information I needed to know. I'm happy that it's all over. Michigan Auto Law helped me through a very difficult time.
John Nelson from Brighton
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.

Michigan auto law is fast. They got right back to us. You have concerns after a motorcycle accident and you want to know quickly. My husband and I worked with several attorneys, Jeffrey and two partners. Larry Gursten even gave us his cell phone number to call him on nights and weekends. These lawyers were on top of everything they needed to do. We were happy with the settlement.

I have learned since my car accident that recovery is a 24-hour, 7-day a week job. And when you don't have knowledge of the Michigan legal system, you need an attorney and legal team on your side that has knowledge, experience and your best interest at heart. Larry Gursten is more than an attorney - he is there when you need him.

My lawyer Steve Gursten is very knowledgeable about auto law and what was involved with my type of case. Steve and the entire office at Michigan Auto Law are very personable. They are wonderful. Steve and Larry Gursten are truly compassionate, and return calls within minutes - not days. The results of my settlement were way beyond what I expected. I gave one figure, and Steve shot higher. I have been very happy with this law firm, and will definitely continue referring auto accident victims their way.

I was rear-ended by a drunk driver when I was in Michigan. Being from Ohio, I didn't know who would be the best attorney, but when talking to several people on a job site, they recommended Michigan Auto Law. This law firm is extremely professional. I even talked to the founder of the firm, Larry Gursten, and told him how happy I was with his group. You could not ask for any more personable or professional service and auto accident attorneys. My attorney Kevin Seiferheld was extremely helpful, efficient and detail oriented. His paralegal Laurie Chase was very friendly yet meant solid business. They were so informative during the transition. Even though my lawsuit is settled, they are still behind you afterward.
