Testimonials

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

More Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
from Traverse City
Larry Gursten is more than an attorney - he is there when you need him.
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.
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.
