Who We Are
At The Law Firm of Elia & Ponto we understand and appreciate that when potential clients contact our office, they are often looking for more than a monetary recovery. Many times, our clients are looking for help in recovering from the injuries they sustained as a result of someone else’s negligence. We have realized over the years that most clients are unaware of the medical benefits they may be entitled to the moment they are in an automobile accident, or that in certain circumstances, a business or other private property may have insurance covering medical treatment related to the injuries sustained in the accident. A Michigan Auto Accident lawyer must be dedicated to your case. That’s why here at the Michigan Auto Accident law firm of Elia & Ponto we treat every client like family.
