Over 3-1/2 years ago, my adult son and family were in a catastrophic auto accident, as a result of a drunk driver. My son, the sole survivor, and the owner of a business was severely injured and in a coma. Our world as we knew it changed in a moment. I was bombarded with requests for interviews from the media, attorneys wanting to represent this case, dealing with the insurance company, medical decisions for my son as well as end of life arrangements for his family. On the strong recommendation of my son’s business attorney, I contacted Paul Janes. He met with me immediately. The very first step that I needed to take was to become my son’s guardian and conservator, so that I could legally have access to “his life”, make decisions for him, his family and business. Paul’s expertise is unmatched in his profession! I found Paul to be very professional, respectful and caring about his clients. We have learned that as you start to physically recover from an auto accident tragedy, it is just the beginning of the fight for your life! Paul has demonstrated that he has expert knowledge of Michigan No-fault Law, fierce tenacity and toughness needed to deal with complex insurance challenges. Communication, one of Paul’s many strengths has been invaluable to me. I was able to count on receiving very timely responses from him, which was crucial when being faced with so many decisions. I would highly recommend Paul to anyone that is looking for a stellar attorney of integrity that you can trust to guide you through the tumultuous waters of a tragic motor vehicle crash. Paul, thank you! I am very grateful for all of your care and support. Also, a huge thank you to Paul’s team – Carol, Mindy and Amanda – you are all priceless! Betsy

To my ROCKSTAR legal team,

I can’t thank you enough for all you have done on my families behalf! Yesterday was an epic win and my family can finally put that to rest. To see the relief visibly from my mother yesterday, will be a moment I will never forget. Tears are running down my face as I write this. Thank you Paul, Amanda, Mindy & Carol from the bottom of my heart!!!



It is such a huge relief to close this chapter in our lives. We’ve appreciated Ben and Mindy’s guidance and support while going through this. We hope to never need Gruel Mills Nims & Pylman PLLC’ legal services again but would not hesitate to reach out or refer the firm upon request. – WJ

Paul and his team went above and beyond on so many levels. He was very responsive, took the time to explain things, and always had our best interests in mind. We had a very long drawn out case but Paul did not stop pushing forward. Once Paul took over our case from a previous attorney we saw IMMEDIATE and favorable results despite COVID delays. Another thing that we admire about Paul is his straightforward attitude. He did not sugar coat anything and was ALWAYS honest with us. We HIGHLY recommend Paul and his team to anyone who is looking for help. We are extremely grateful to have found Paul to take over our case.


“Thank you for your kindness to Ron when this process all began. Thank you also for walking me through the end of a very sad time. Your compassion was noted and your professionalism appreciated. Carol and Karen were very patient, informative, and caring to me. I truly appreciate all of you making this difficult situation less painful”.  – MK (3/2021)


I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for your help, determination and hard work you have put into our case. It was surely not a simple, quick case, but your beliefs in the case kept us moving forward. Your professionalism was so appreciated by me. Thank you for considering our case and seeing it through with a strong outcome.

With Appreciation,


Tom, Shari, and Diane,

Thank you all so much for your help with this matter. Your professionalism and care have been top notch and a relief, especially given the nature of the matter. I truly cannot thank you enough.

Ben, I just want to thank you so much for all of your help.  I trust you and really liked the way that the Judge spoke so highly of you, I think you are a Godsend for me!!  Praying for you and I know that God has my back and so do you.

Tom Worsfold and his team far exceeded my expectations regarding my personal injury case. Every question I had throughout the process was thoroughly answered, every situation was diligently explained to me beforehand, and level of professionalism and compassion was outstanding. I was very satisfied with the outcome and would highly recommend him and his team to anyone.

Tom, over the last 3.5 years, you have exhibited the utmost professionalism in handling of our cases. Specifically, meeting the challenges posed by opposing counsel in reference to Dorothy’s case. So as Dorothy and I move forward in life, I wish to offer a sincere “thank you” for your services and counsel during the recent years. In my opinion, we simply could not have asked for a better lawyer to represent us. I hope to never have to need your services again; however, know that you will be the first call, if warranted.

Tom, we would like to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas! We just cannot thank you enough for all your time, effort, and unwavering support. We will always be grateful for such a successful outcome resulting in continued healing. Wishing you and your family peace and happiness in the coming year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We are being served by Tom Behm. He is personable, a good listener, empathetic…we have confidence in him to help us resolve our case in the best possible manner.
