Butzel Long attorney Mitch Zajac profiled in the Detroit Legal News
Good Samaritan: Attorney rescues trapped driver after freeway crash
By Sheila Pursglove
With a background in automotive engineering, and now an attorney whose focus includes automotive law, Mitchell Zajac is very familiar with vehicles. But nothing could have prepared him for a recent hair-raising automotive experience on an early morning commute from Howell to Butzel Long’s Detroit office.
The roads were icy, and as Zajac rounded a curve on the freeway, he came across an accident that had happened moments earlier. One car was smashed and another was flipped on its back, trapping the driver inside. Pulling his own car over, Zajac then helped the trapped driver out of his vehicle and up the embankment to safety, staying until police and emergency personnel arrived on the scene.
Then he continued his commute and put in a 14-hour workday.
