We Help Clients and Their Families Recover from Those Responsible for Causing Injury.

INSURANCE COMPANIES HAVE GOOD LAWYERS – SO SHOULD YOU
As Michigan personal injury lawyers, we represent clients who have been injured, and the families of those who have been killed, as a result of car, truck, and motorcycle accidents, other accidents, nursing home negligence, pedestrian accidents, defective products, medical malpractice, premises liability, dog bites, workplace injuries, and police brutality. We also represent those harmed by employment discrimination and harassment, financial scams, and financial professional malpractice, as well as those who have been improperly denied social security benefits. Our practice covers the State of Michigan, and we frequently represent clients in Detroit.
