Steve treated me with dignity and he was always there to answer my questions.
My lawyer Steve Gursten came into my life under the most devastating circumstances. One day, my girlfriend was driving to pick me up from work when she ran out of gas on I-75. As she was putting gas in her car on the side of the highway, a semi-truck veered from its lane and hit and killed her. My deceased girlfriend's family was not satisfied with the money the insurance adjuster was offering following the truck accident, so I called Michigan Auto Law to see if there were more No-Fault benefits available for her children. Steve Gursten looked tirelessly for more insurance and he did it out of kindness - he didn't charge me a dime. I appreciated that so much. Steve also treated me with dignity and he was always there to answer my questions. I would recommend this attorney for anybody who needs help with a truck accident in Michigan, because he is a polite man, a man of his word and he does what he says. You don't get that with most lawyers. Most other lawyers wanted to take 33 percent or charge $200 an hour, and didn't even care if insurance was there. Losing my girlfriend to a truck crash caused by a trucker who may have been asleep at the wheel was horrible. But at least now I had can lay my head on my pillow, knowing I did the right thing by getting all of the insurance possible for her family. I wouldn't have been able to do this without Steve Gursten's generous help.

I couldn't have asked for more from an attorney
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.

It's all about me as the client
I have a traumatic brain injury from my car accident. It's a very difficult time in my life but my attorney Brandon Hewitt helped me through it. Brandon is a great attorney because he's a very good listener. He delves into things that allows you as a client to express what you think is important. He also knows the information that is most important to your situation and knows how to get those answers from you. He provides you with honest feedback. He makes no promises that he can't deliver on and is very straightforward. I've had multiple careers and when you're dealing with professionals, sometimes people can be a little too full of themselves. Brandon does not come off that way. He is genuine. He's not coming from a place where it's all about him. It's all about me as his client - during my case and even now that it is closed.

It was a good experience.
I would recommend Michigan Auto law, especially with Brandon. He was always good on keeping me informed on what was going on. I was never in the dark with this firm. Because hiring a lawyer was so new to me, he was very informative with things I wouldn't have thought of, like the fact that you can hire someone to come and clean your house for you if you are injured from a car accident. Brandon helped me get all my no-fault benefits. He would be sure to let me know my options, and everything was always my decision. he was very warm to speak with. It was a good experience.

I've been 110 percent happy with them and I've already referred four people their way.
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.
