Seikaly, Stewart & Bennett History
Seikaly, Stewart & Bennett, P.C. was formed in 1995. Before that, Bill Seikaly practiced at one of the foremost automotive product liability firms in the country, Goodman, Lister Seikaly & Peters, P.C. At this firm, Seikaly learned how to litigate in the high-stakes world of devastating vehicle accidents, where the Big Three and other automobile manufacturers spared no expense or tactic to protect their products and companies. Bill left his firm in 1992 and practiced on his own for three years before joining with Jeff Stewart to form Seikaly, Stewart & Bennett.
Jeff Stewart began his career in general litigation, handling matters as diverse as: divorce, medical malpractice, product liability, business litigation, covenants not to compete, commissioned sales cases, workers compensation, social security and general personal injury. He became a member of the West Bloomfield Board of Education in 1983 and remained for 24 years, holding every office on the board and serving as its President three times. Jeff left his general practice firm in 1993 to specialize in personal injury and business litigation. He then joined forces with Bill Seikaly in 1995.
