After searching for many months for an attorney that I can trust to file suit on my behalf and represent me for my non-paid auto accidents bills. I was introduced to the best Trial Lawyer in Michigan, Attorney Heather Atnip. When I started my non-emergency transportation business back in 2010, I was losing out on thousands of dollars until Attorney Heather Atnip began representing me. I notice from the first time we met she was dedicated to her clients, educated in her field and passionate about her work. And, Attorney Atnip took the time to educate me on the filing process; while giving me step by step instructions on how to maintain good record keeping making the process of filing a Provider Law Suit a lot smoother.
Once in the courtroom, it was apparent that I had the best Trial Lawyer in Michigan, Attorney Heather Atnip! Attorney Heather Atnip demonstrated her outstanding knowledge in Michigan Law and the Insurance Companies Defense Attorneys couldn’t stand a chance to win against a woman who is so fierce, knowledgeable, persuasive and tough! There’s not a case I would not allow Attorney Atnip to represent for me, because I know she will get the job done.
To date, Attorney Atnip has won me over $100,000.00 in funds that was rightfully owed to me and is now representing my family and me for all of our legal matters. I am extremely satisfied with all of the services Attorney Atnip has to offer her clients and the staff at her law firm is very kind, friendly and professional. I personally recommend Attorney Heather Atnip to represent you then, you’ll be saying….”Attorney Atnip is the best Trial Lawyer in Michigan!” I guarantee it!
I was assaulted by a patient while on the job in June of 2011. I did file a police report and the assaulter was charged with assault. It was a very traumatic experience but I finally summoned the courage to consult a lawyer in August of 2011. After meeting with Ms. Atnip at her office in Waterford for about an hour to go over details of the assault, she determined that she would write a letter to the place of my employment stating her belief that they were negligent in keeping me safe on the job. If they offered me any money as a "settlement" out of court, she would take a percentage of that; we both agreed that actually filing a lawsuit would be too traumatic as I would have to testify in court, and I didn't want to relive the whole experience.
I never once heard back from her or anyone at the office!! When I called, the office staff would tell me that she was not in the office at the time, or with another client; I would leave a message for her, but my calls were never returned. I even wrote her a letter with my complaint that I didn't know if she had even sent the employer a letter at all, and that I didn't know what was going on. Again, no response from Ms. Atnip. I have to believe that because this case would have resulted in a very small pay-out, she frankly didn't want to bother with it. Instead of having the decency to respond to my calls/letters, like a true professional would, she ignored me and left me hanging. I was still too much in shock about the whole experience and its aftermath (I did quit that place of employment), that I kind of gave up on the situation; now the statute of limitations on this case has expired, and I will never be able to recoup anything for my trauma--all because Ms. Atnip didn't have the common decency of communicating with her client.
Please look elsewhere for an attorney. I wouldn't recommend this one to my worst enemy.
After contacting other law firms, Heather was recommended as "the best" auto law attorney in the state. We found her to be professional, caring, committed and most of all, totally knowledgeable. We were impressed with her promptness in returning all of our phone calls. There is no question that we hired the best attorney. We constantly recommend her to anyone in a similar situation. She is exceptional.
Heather and her staff recently took on our case. She has gone above and beyond our expectations with great advice and leading us in the right direction. We couldn't be any happier with the service we recieved.
Heather is someone who is good at staying on top of things. If you want someone to get the job done - and get it done right - she is an outstanding selection. Very personable and VERY good at what she does.
Heather Atnip is indeed, an exceptional attorney, as well as a very caring and professional individual. When my dog and I were attacked by a pit bull dog, Heather not only did an excellent job researching, preparing and presenting the case, but so too she was genuinely concerned about my personal health, safety, and well-being.
During the entire process from my initital meeting with Heather up until the final settlement hearing, Heather always kept me informed on the status of my case, as well as regularly shared information with me as to the next step in the process. Heather took time to explain each and every part of the litigation procedures and was sincerely interested in my physical and emotional healing from the injury. Even though Heather was also dealing with other cases and their respective clients, she always made me feel that my case was important to her and that she sincerely cared about me as an individual.
Finally, Ms. Atnip's personal qualities of integrity, respect for others, and ability to work collaboratively with her clients and with other professionals enable her to be not only a very committed but also a very effective attorney.

Heather took care of everything in an extremely professional and timely manner. She never steered me wrong when it came to the decision making and answered all my questions as they arose. In fact, when I have a legal issue to this day, I still ask her first what her opinion is and what I should do. If my friends ever need an attorney I would gladly send them to Heather because mainly, she handles business.
I was referred to Heather Atnip by a very reputable attorney who felt that my case would be handled better by Heather due to her expertise in auto accidents. Heather was eager to take my case and informed me of many things that my auto insurance carrier neglected to mention or offer as a benefit of my policy, even after being one of their clients for more than 24 years! Heather kept me abreast of things, explained things to me in layman's terms, and often called just to check how my recovery was progressing. Heather truly was an advocate of getting the medical care that I required and the compensation that the insurance company owed me. I would highly recommend Heather if you truly want someone that will dig their heals in and get you what you need and deserve!
