Anthony (Tony) J. McEachern
Attorney, Hakim, Toma & Yaldoo
If Tony McEachern wasn’t an attorney, he could see himself as a history professor. He even earned a Master’s degree in history. “I am particularly fascinated with American legal history,” says Tony. But he always knew he was destined to become a lawyer, and graduated with distinction from Thomas M. Cooley Law School.
Prior to becoming an attorney, Tony was a licensed private detective working on behalf of insurance carriers throughout the state of Michigan – which brings an informed perspective to his cases involving auto, truck, and motorcycle accident victims. Tony understands how the insurance companies work, and knows what insurance claims representatives need to get insurance claims successfully processed. He says, “Dealing with insurance companies after a motor vehicle accident can be a confusing and seemingly endless bureaucratic experience. I like to think my background brings a voice of reason to helping clients better understand the claims process, and why things are done the way they are. Knowing what to expect, and that help is on the way from the insurance company can provide some comfort during trying times, even if it is taking longer than anticipated.”
When asked what he enjoys most about being a lawyer, Tony says it’s both the day-to-day activity of helping injured accident victims, and when necessary, going to trial and spending time in the courtroom to advocate on behalf of his clients.
Why does Tony think potential clients should reach out to Hakim, Toma & Yaldoo? “We are not only highly experienced auto and personal injury lawyers, we are compassionate and hands-on with your case from beginning to end, whether you are trying to get compensated by your insurance company, have been critically injured and need long-term care, or if your case ends up going to trial.”
He continues, “In addition, when you hire us, you hire our entire team. Each of our attorneys is invested in your case, even if they are not working with you directly. We collectively bring our deep knowledge of auto and personal injury law to every case we handle, with the level of expertise and personalized service your case deserves. It makes me proud to be part of the Hakim, Toma & Yaldoo team.”
