Daniel S. Zick
Dan Zick is a personal injury attorney who focuses his practice primarily on auto accident cases and Michigan no-fault claims.

He has successfully obtained favorable results for clients suffering from amputation injuries, slip and fall accidents, and dog bite injuries, and practices in state and federal courts throughout Michigan.
As an attorney, Dan prides himself on being approachable and candid with his clients and guiding them throughout the legal process with honest communication, stating,“If you haven’t taken the time to sit down and have honest and straightforward conversations with your client about their case, then you can’t truly understand what ‘winning’ means to them.”
Dan first joined the firm as a law clerk while attending law school. Here, he began working with the firm’s senior attorneys and partners and gained a comprehensive understanding of Michigan’s complex auto no-fault insurance system. Following law school, Dan gained valuable experience litigating serious injury cases in the Metro-Detroit area, where he started his career defending liquor liability cases, among others. This experience helped Dan develop not only a unique perspective on personal injury cases but also an in-depth understanding of Michigan’s liquor liability laws. This knowledge has proved vital in his practice as a personal injury attorney, where he often advocates for victims injured in drunk driving accidents.
While Dan seeks to handle each case with compassion and thoughtfulness, he is never afraid to get his hands dirty and fight for his clients. “A lawyer needs to not only believe in their client’s case but be willing to take on the challenges that come with pursuing that case.” Dan utilizes this attitude to strongly advocate for survivors of accidents involving motor vehicles, semi-trucks, and motorcycles. He is a vital member of our team and works diligently to protect the rights of the seriously injured in Michigan.
