Make us your first call for any injury-related legal claim.

Our attorneys bring a combined 142 years of experience in injury law.  We give personal attention to each client's needs and the interaction of all legal remedies available.  Our integrated approach maximizes your individual recovery.

With the complex interplay between Social Security Disability, Workers Compensation, Veterans Benefits, No-Fault, third party lawsuits, short- and long-term disability, and pensions, you need a law firm with expertise in all these areas of law.  We bring an integrated approach to each client's case to make sure we obtain all available benefits for you.  Make J. Timothy Esper and Associates your one stop to get the legal help you need with any injury case.

Across the board, Michigan's Republican-controlled state government is putting new limits on recoveries for injured individuals.  In workers' comp law, for instance, one-party rule has given us a new law where injured workers' benefits are being reduced based on non-existent "phantom" wages.  In the face of these changes, you need  a lawfirm with a proven track record of fighting for our injured clients.  We have represented injured workers in all walks of life since 1988.  Our experience in construction work has given us a unique understanding of the dangers inherent in the work of the construction building trades.  We have represented members of all the building trades in workers' comp, social security, VA, no fault, and third party liability cases.  Our associate, Jon Garrett, is Michigan's most experienced construction accident litigation specialist.  We have recovered tens of millions of dollars in damages, workers' comp and social security benefits for injured construction workers.

In auto injury cases, employment discrimination, wrongful discharge, and general civil and criminal matters, our associate, Eric Frankie, has a wealth of experience and expertise.  Mark Aiello is our Social Security Disability and Veterans' Benefits expert.  Call to schedule a free initial consultation.  We offer secure validated parking at our downtown Detroit offices.  For serious injuries, we will  meet with you at your home or in the hospital.  In all injury cases, there is no attorney fee unless we achieve a recovery for you.
