Michael J. Morse is a personal injury attorney with offices located in Southfield (Oakland County) and Warren ( Macomb County), Michigan.

Then, in September of 1995 he opened his own firm and today proudly employs a staff of 35 including thirteen attorneys.  Michael Morse, P.C. is now the largest firm in Michigan specializing in Automobile, truck and motorcycle cases.  99% of the cases we handle have to do with either first or third party Michigan No-fault claims.  We do take a handful of catastrophic construction accident cases, significant dog bite cases and will help our clients with social security matters.
