Michigan gem has turned twenty years old. It is the Law Offices of
Christopher Trainor and associates. This small law firm has quietly
developed a reputation of being one the leading forces in Michigan.
Unlike his boastful counterparts, Trainor lets his reputation and a
scowling picture of himself, on the yellow pages, do most of his
Trainor started this firm in downtown Detroit after
practicing law at Neighborhood Family Legal Services, while attending
The Detroit College of Law, and then a brief stint in another small law
office. He decided he could do a better job for the people he was
representing if he had total control over his cases. Trainor felt that
his supervisors had lost touch and that he understood his clients
better than they did.
This was the beginning of The Law Offices
of Christopher Trainor. "It wasn't pretty at all," said Trainor. "My
office was the size of a walk-in closet, it was a desk and two chairs,
and when you opened the door it smacked into the chair the clients sat
in," he said. "It was so small I had to go out in the hall to change
my mind," joked Trainor.
From these meager beginnings The Law
Offices of Christopher Trainor and Associates has evolved into one of
the most influential legal practices in the State of Michigan,
specializing in personal injury law. Trainor, primarily a personal injury lawyer,
has fought insurance companies, police departments, hospitals and major
corporations, to protect the rights of his clients that needed him most
and winning against these giant machines that too often trample on the
rights of the people.
"It wasn't easy," said Trainor, "but when
you're able to help a person that has been wronged during one of the
worst in their lives, it makes all the difference in the world!" he
said. "You have to understand, when I meet with a client for the first
time they usually feel there is no hope left," he said. "These people
need my help and that is why I practice law."
He and his team of
lawyers are extremely good at helping people in need, winning millions
of dollars a year for their clients each year. "I have been extremely
lucky and blessed with the best lawyers, employees, mentors, family and
friends," said Trainor, "without them none of this could have happened."
Law Offices of Christopher Trainor and Associates has become so
influential within Michigan, that people from other states have sought
out their expertise. It has allowed this small Michigan business to
expand their services into other states to assist other people that
have been wronged. Trainor is excited about expanding his legal
services to other states but will not allow the quality of his firm's
legal representation to waver at all.
"I have built my
reputation on providing the best legal representation possible," said
Trainor. His office manager and right arm, Susan Stepanski said, "We
definitely go through several lawyers and office staff before we find
the right one to fit our organization. We only hire the highest
quality of person to work with our team."
is no one person is more important than the next. "From the bottom to
the top of this firm everyone is an intricate part of this
organization," he said.
Whatever the secret of this Michigan gem
is, we wish The Law Offices of Christopher Trainor and Associates
continued success in the years to come. It is nice write about a
Michigan company that is doing well during these tough economic times.
