I highly recommend Brandon
I was in a car accident and I was injured so I turned to an attorney at Michigan Auto Law to see what the law would afford me. Brandon was the lawyer of my choice and he did great with my case. He kept very close contact with me and he kept me updated and informed. The communication with him was great. If I couldn’t get a hold of him right away over the phone, he would always call me back quickly. He treated me excellent, first class as a matter of fact. He gave me all of my options and he did exactly what I wanted him to do. I didn’t want a long drawn out lawsuit, and Brandon made the settlement quick and easy. I’m very happy with the amount Brandon got for my injuries and the way he treated me throughout the lawsuit. I would recommend him highly. I know I can still call on Brandon whenever I need anything.

Very pleased with Michigan Auto Law
I was the third person from the stop light on Cherry Hill on Telegraph. I was waiting for the light to turn green and I was rear ended from the back at 40 miles per hour. I was taken to the emergency room with a mild concussion. I had concussive effects. My son-in-law is an accident lawyer and likes the attorneys Michigan Auto Law, so I went to him to seek out the best firm in Michigan. Since he is in the same legal specialty, he know which questions to ask to direct me to the right place. From there, I had an interview with a lawyer Brandon Hewitt and he took my case from there. Everybody at Michigan Auto Law is great. Brandon followed through with everything for me, even though I had a smaller case. He did his due diligence to help me. There are some quirks and constraints with the Michigan law regarding car accidents and this firm is even very proactive in getting legislation changed in favor of injured plaintiffs. It makes me happy to see they’re working to change what needs to be changed rather than just shrugging their shoulders and treating people like a file number. Overall I’m very pleased with Michigan Auto Law and the representation from Brandon for everything they were able to do. I would recommend them to anybody.

Brandon is a great attorney who helped me immensely.
Brandon Hewitt is a very friendly, capable and assertive lawyer. He was able to get me a pain and suffering settlement after I was rear ended in a car accident and sustained severe neck and back pain. Also, he explained my rights under the Michigan No Fault auto insurance system and made sure all of my No Fault benefits came to me from my insurance company. I'm very satisfied with the results thanks to Brandon's help. I recommend Brandon. I tell people he's a great attorney who helped me immensely.

ADVICE
I sought help over the phone regarding an auto accident that happened while traveling in California with a Michigan insurance. We hired an attorney in CA. The CA attorney advised us to consult with a MI attorney regarding MI law as they were unfamiliar with NO-fault laws. Mr Hewitt was very knowledgeable and guided me in the right direction. We are thankful for his help.

Simple experience. Great settlement.
My experience with Michigan Auto Law was simple. My attorney Brandon Hewitt took care of everything for me and I didn't have to worry. I wasn't going to sue at first. Then my insurance company said the vehicle that hit me did not have insurance. Yet another adjuster said they did have insurance. I had an ankle injury and I needed surgery. My biggest concern was healing and making sure I received what I was entitled to, especially since I was getting different stories from my insurance company. That was the reason I came to this law firm. I felt comfortable here all the time. Brandon contacted me when he needed information and everything went smoothly. He got me a settlement check that I'm happy with.

Great experience with Brandon Hewitt and Michigan Auto Law
I got a fast settlement at Michigan Auto Law. I was told by other lawyers it would take 3-5 years but my pain and suffering settlement happened before the one year anniversary of my motorcycle accident. I got hit by a car when I was on my motorcycle and I was badly injured. I had a close friend that used Michigan Auto Law for her injury and she recommended this firm for motorcycle crashes because she had a great experience. I also had a great experience. I was treated very nicely by my attorney Brandon Hewitt. He was forthright and not evasive in his answers to my questions. He explained things in detail about the motorcycle accident law that were easy to understand, not all of the legal gobbledygook. I'm happy with Brandon and the settlement he got for me.

Brandon does NOT care
After being hit by a car my a delivery driver, I hired Brandon to handle my case. He does not keep me updated- I hear from him once every three months if I'm lucky. When I call and try to get updates, his secretary informs me he's not available, but when I ask when he will be, she simply says "I don't know". So, on top of not taking initiative to keep me informed he is a hard person to get ahold of. Even after leaving voicemails, his average response time seems to be a week. Most concerning is his being adamant that my settlement check has "been in the mail" for three weeks. This is after I sent him my power of attorney form to accept a settlement MONTHS ago. If you care about timeliness, honesty, and communication with your attorney, hire anyone but Brandon Hewitt.

Response from Brandon Hewitt May 3, 2016
Dear Jessica, I’m sorry and disappointed you feel you had a less-than-perfect experience. At Michigan Auto Law, our stated mission is to be the “best in the business,” which means being the best at providing legal knowledge that’s necessary to successfully litigate your case and providing the best possible experience for you with the least amount of stress. This includes constant communication throughout your lawsuit - and after - which I make a priority in each and every case, including yours. Again, I’m sorry you’re upset. I understand how frustrating it can be to wait for the conclusion of your case while healing from an accident that wasn’t your fault. I’m also incredibly sorry you feel that your calls were disregarded. During the times you called, I made it a priority to call you back with updates to your lawsuit. I also apologize that you feel there were not enough updates throughout the case and that my secretary was not clear about my availability. I assure you, whenever there was an update, I made it a point to inform you so you were appraised of the happenings in your case. I’m still committed to help you, and speaking with you to make this right on your behalf. In the times we have spoken on the telephone since your case concluded and since you left this review, you mentioned you were satisfied with both the result of the case and our commitment to you as part of the Michigan Auto Law family. In addition, I want to apologize that your settlement check took longer than expected to come in from the insurance company than we first anticipated. When it did arrive, we made sure it was in your hands as soon as possible. Jessica, I want to again reassure you how much we truly care about making sure you have an excellent experience with our law firm. I will be calling you once again to talk through this and see what else I can do for you. Sincerely, Brandon
