History of Saurbier Law Firm


The Saurbier Law Firm was founded in 1994 by a small group of experienced attorneys with a vision of providing high-stakes litigation services with top-tier client service at a reasonable cost. Since then, the firm has handled hundreds of cases and developed a reputation in Michigan as the go-to firm for cases that are particularly difficult, high-exposure cases.

The metro Detroit firm has evolved from a focus on medical malpractice liability and insurance defense, as its attorneys have been sought out to represent clients in other areas.  Today, our attorneys also represent the automotive and trucking industry, municipalities, businesses, and individuals.

The firm and its attorneys are well known in the community from their successes in representing clients, speaking engagements, and presence in the community. The firm counts among its accolades awards and recognitions from legal organizations and peers in publications such as Michigan Super Lawyers, Crain’s Detroit Business, Hour Magazine, and Best Lawyers in America.
