If you want results,
My husband was hit on his motorcycle by a drunk driver. After getting the run around from the insurance company, i made the choice to contact an attorney. Bret was the man for us, he got the job done. He always kept us informed and we are very grateful for all he did!!!!

Motorcycle accident lawyer downriver, michigan
This is the best injury attorney downriver, and probably in the State of Michigan. If you are seriously injured this is the attorney to hire. He does alot of auto cases and motorcycle cases and trucking injury cases. He got me over one million for my motorcycle accident.
