I have been brought up with a commitment to legal professionalism that has run through my family.  In recent times, it seems that some of the commitment to professionalism and legal ethics have been lost.  Not here.  It’s worth noting that a lot of our success has been achieved by just plain, old fashioned hard work and preparation.

When an individual is seriously injured in an accident, the impact on all aspects of their life is immediate.  They find that their employment, income, and active lifestyle are threatened we are ready to fight for our clients; and win.  Often, insurance companies are reluctant to pay.  

It is important that we investigate and document the accident and injuries early, and in a timely manner.  So when you need a good lawyer, don't wait, call Sawyer: (616) 451-8478, or (616) 822-1360.

Our law practice has always excelled in obtaining outstanding results for clients who have suffered serious personal injury due to the negligence of others, automobile accidents, premises liability, civil rights, and product liability claims.

More recently (the past 15 years), we have developed a sub-specialty of defending drinking driving (OWI/DUI) cases. The penalties for this crime have dramatically increased over the last number of years.  As a direct result of having achieved outstanding results for clients in this area, I have been asked to teach and have taught attorneys statewide on how to handle drunk driving cases.  In this context, I have been on the faculty of The Institute of Continuing Legal Education (ICLE) which is an educational provider sponsored by the State Bar of Michigan.  I have also been a member of the National College for DUI Defense and Michigan Association of OWI Attorneys, and other related organizations.


I want to tell you, one on one, that I have been successful in representing and getting the best results for clients for over 40 years, because I am personally and professionally committed to representing people the way that I would want to be represented. Ask around and read further on this website to be satisfied that we are not only the right choice for your representation but also the best choice.  


Or just give us a call at: (616) 451-8478 or toll free at: (866) SAWYER-6, or in emergencies (616) 822-1360.
