Thank you for visiting the online site of Michael Pines, APC, where you can find a downtown San Diego auto accident lawyer who will stand up for your rights in the insurance claims process. Without an experienced attorney you are at the mercy of the insurance company, and they have lawyers and claims adjustors who want to keep their profits high by paying you the minimum amount. Once you reach a settlement at the end of your claim, there’s no going back. Since you only have one chance to get the compensation you deserve for your injuries, you need an expert attorney on your side. The right attorney to handle your claim is one who has experience in personal injury law and an understanding of how the insurance industry works. We have two decades of experience in this field, and Michael Pines has firsthand knowledge of how insurance companies operate, because he used to work for them. As he represented these clients he saw insurance companies profit by paying injured people no more than the bare minimum, regardless of how serious their accident was. This inspired him to form Michael Pines, APC in 1992 to represent accident victims in downtown San Diego and other parts of Southern California. With a downtown San Diego personal injury attorney fighting on your behalf, you can rest assured you will receive fair compensation.
