Thank you for coming to the Web site of Michael Pines, APC where you can find an Oceanside auto accident lawyer who will give your insurance claim the attention it deserves. Processing an insurance claim might seem simple – you act in good faith and provide the insurance company with accurate details about the accident, your injuries, damages and the ensuing medical bills. It may seem like you should get a fair deal if you are honest, but this is not usually the case. The insurance companies have claims adjustors and lawyers who want to make sure you get paid as little as possible. You need an attorney who can help stack the odds in your favor. With two decades of experience, we know just how the insurance industry works. Michael Pines actually represented insurance companies after graduating from the University of California’s Hastings Law School in 1987. He saw firsthand how they profited by underpaying accident victims, so he decided to form Michael Pines, APC in 1992 to represent these victims. We are dedicated to his mission of giving injured people a fair chance during the insurance claims process. A skilled Oceanside personal injury attorney from our team can make sure your insurance claim is treated with the utmost professionalism from day one. We’re here to make sure you get a fair deal.
