The best at handling catastrophic auto cases
My husband was in a car accident and he was smashed pretty bad in a head on collision. He spent months in the hospital. We didn't need just any lawyer. We needed attorneys who specialized in catastrophic auto lawsuits. So we did some research and we found out that Michigan Auto Law was the best at handling catastrophic auto cases. In our case, the insurance company never made a real offer, so we had to go to trial. Steven Gursten and Tom James were our trial lawyers. They explained things very well to us. They didn't want the insurance company taking advantage of us so they fought for us in trial. They were very personal. They made a lot of calls and explained each step along the way very well: what our options were, where we were at in the trial... they kept us abreast of everything. Even though we were in a different city, it still felt like we had a local attorney, because they made house calls due to my husband's disability from the crash. We felt like Steve and Tom were our friends because they were so kind and made us such a huge priority. We are very happy with the trial results they were able to get for us in a timely fashion. The great trial results have given closure in my husband's healing process. I'd also like to give thanks to their paralegal Laurie Chase. She helped us on a daily basis. She was calming and just awesome. I can't say enough about Michigan Auto Law and the professionalism of this law firm.

Nobody has more passion and knowledge about Michigan auto laws
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.

The settlement gave my family and I financial certainty
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.

You are never a number, a car crash or just a name
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.

Tom worked very hard to get me a settlement I'm happy with after a truck tire hit my car
I was driving and the wheel came off another driver's car and struck my car. It wasn't just any tire, it was a commercial truck tire. I felt like my injuries were significant enough that I was due some compensation for it. I decided to hire Michigan Auto Law because of their large presence on the Internet. They looked like a solid company and they only deal with car and truck accidents, so I liked that. Tom James was a very helpful attorney. He worked very hard to get me a settlement that I'm happy with. Tom and his team, his paralegal Michele and his secretary Robin, were always there when I needed something or had a question. I also had faith that Tom had full knowledge of the auto accident laws and in the way he litigated my case. The way he explained the auto laws and what to expect in my case was also thorough and understandable. This was a stress-free experience and I highly recommend Tom and his team at Michigan Auto Law.
