We Are Here to Help You

Many of our clients tell us that they never thought they would be involved in a lawsuit. But that’s before they suffered serious injuries due to someone else’s negligence. Maybe it was a drunk driver, a young person texting and driving, or someone who wasn’t paying attention. When you are injured, it affects every aspect of your life. If you have been injured, you need an experienced lawyer. Our founding attorney, Michael G. Heilmann, draws upon more than 30 years of experience and practices personal injury law exclusively. When you call our office, you will speak directly with an attorney who will take the time to get to know you and fully understand the details of your injury and the unique needs of your case. Unlike the big firms that you see on television every day, in our office you are not just another case. We are committed to you and your family.

Michigan No-Fault Auto Law Experts

If you have been injured in a car accident , whether you were a driver, passenger, or pedestrian, you have certain rights and benefits available under the Michigan No-Fault Auto Law. Don’t rely on your insurance claims representative to explain your rights. Often  insurance companies will unjustly cut people off of their benefits. If you are having difficulty collecting your Michigan No Fault benefits (also known as PIP benefits), we can help.
