Chris is a highly skilled trial lawyer who is fiercely devoted to his clients’ best interests. Since 1993, he has been focusing his practice on automobile accident injury and No-Fault cases. Chris is widely respected among the plaintiff and defense bar for his many trials. He has tried nearly 50 cases to verdict. Many of Chris’ trial jury verdicts have been chosen for publication in Michigan Lawyers Weekly and the Michigan Trial Reporter. Excellent trial results allow Chris to achieve faster and bigger settlements for his clients than the many lawyers who the insurance companies know will not take a case to trial.
In addition, Chris has extensive appellate experience, and he has successfully argued cases in front of the Michigan and Ohio Court of Appeals.
Chris joined Michigan Auto Law from the law firm of Bauer and Hunter, where he was a founding member and managing partner. He tried a multitude of civil cases in courts around the state including landlord-tenant, auto theft, commercial and personal property damage, insurance fraud, bodily injury and automobile No-Fault, as well as, dog bite and slip & fall cases.

"I was in a serious accident in 2017. I called several attorneys and sought advice from many people. Being in an accident is scary and frustrating enough. I needed an attorney that would walk with me through the whole process. The decision to hire Chris was absolutely the right decision. Chris has been there every step of the way from the simple to, well, the not so simple! Chris went above and beyond the whole way through. He was always prompt on getting my questions answered and gave me great guidance through a very frustrating time. Thank you Chris! "
"Christopher Hunter is an attorney with a stellar understanding of the law and on how to represent his clients. When I met Chris, he took the time to listen, understand my ideas and put them into actions against the insurance company which delayed, postured, and attempted to deny my claim. He took my ideas, juxtaposed them with what is and isn’t legal, and gave me a “Plan.” Chris has represented me with a tenacity that I have never seen before and honored my request to not settle for “pennies.” He crunches the numbers and shows me every possible scenario and allows me to make decisions. His fees to me have been reasonable and with no surprises. Several things I look for in an attorney are, 1. Relatable-ness, 2. Understanding the case from both the insurance company and the client’s perspective, 3. Honoring the clients desires based on that understanding, 4. Protecting the client’s rights, and 5. Pursuing full recovery. Christopher Hunter IS that attorney. I believe that without Chris, I would not recover much of anything, but he is aggressive and sure-footed within the scope of the law. I observed that he is well known among his colleagues and highly respected. One attorney remarked to me that he was glad he wasn’t going against Chris Hunter because he knew that Chris would win. To me, that spoke volumes! I would invite others in need of an attorney who is tenacious, personable, and relatable to contact Christopher Hunter. He will put your interests ahead of the insurance companies and will be truthful with you concerning your case. He knows what he is doing and what he is talking about. He can translate the law and the possibilities of your case in layman’s language without compromising the integrity of the law or inflating your chances to recover losses, damages, etc. Christopher Hunter has renewed my faith in the legal process and has also renewed my interest in pursuing a law degree. While I am not one to crunch numbers like he does, I am one who sees the beauty of representing those who are taken advantage of by powerful companies and insurance companies. I want to thank Chris for a job well done. Here's to victory and a big WIN in the very near future. "
