What people are saying:
“As we have been navigating through one of the most challenging times in our families lives, due to medical malpractice, Mr. Steven Hurbis and his team made going through this process feel seamless. Mr. Hurbis was always there to answer any and all questions we had. He always made time for us even as he juggled his very hectic schedule. He was very compassionate and truly cared how we were doing as a family. He never treated us as “just clients”. Mr. Hurbis made us feel like family. With his hard work and dedication, Mr. Hurbis and his team managed to settle our case in a very timely manner. We are highly satisfied with the outcome of our case and would highly recommend McKeen and Associates. In particular, Mr Steven Hurbis.”
In life, we all run into obstacles that short-circuit our plans or even put us on a different path. When I needed help to get past an emotional and physical barrier thrown at me at a point in life where the plan was coming together, McKeen and Associates listened and believed in me even as I was beginning to doubt myself.
We worked together to obtain a settlement that will allow me to change paths as needed and to reestablish myself in confidence. Thank you Brian McKeen and Norm Rosen for hanging with me and pushing for me.
This firm is professional and always there to take your phone call and help out. Barbara D. and Richard C. were great to work with from day one. They always took time to explain what was going on and we achieved the end result we were all looking for. Caring, compassionate and competent – they make a great team. Thank you!
“Greatest lawyers and staffs. The Mckeen and associates took my son’s case 1 week before the statue of limitations expired. Mr. Mckeen and Mr. Hurbis have helped us won our case ( the largest verdict in Michigan) after a 3 weeks long trial. It was a long journey but they accomplished what other law firms could not. Thank you so much for the hard work and dedication with my son’s case. You have taken so much weight off my shoulders now that I know my son will be well taken care for the rest of his life. We really appreciate you and I can not thank you enough. I would highly recommend this team.”
Verdicts & Settlements

Two-month old child, brought to William Beaumont Hospital in Troy, MI, for a renal scan involving a kidney condition. After multiple failed attempts to start an IV, the child’s condition changed dramatically, with the child showing signs of trouble breathing and turning blue. Hospital staff failed to call a code blue or perform chest compressions in a timely fashion, leading to hypoxic ischemia, with resulted in massive brain damage and cerebral palsy. The jury found for the plaintiff, awarding $130 million.
Wade vs. Henry Ford Hospital
Michigan’s largest medical malpractice verdict. Verdict obtained on behalf of brain-damaged baby who had presented to emergency department of Bon Secor Hospital with difficulty breathing. Mother reported child seemed to be “gasping for air.” Following cursory physical examination, child discharged home with instructions for use of inhaler. The following morning, the child arrested while en route to the hospital for additional respiratory difficulties. McKeen & Associates effectively argued despite normal vital signs, history of child gasping for air and numerous visits to emergency department over previous week merited admission to the hospital for observation.
