Welcome to the Web site of Michael Pines, APC. If you received serious injuries in an auto accident and are looking for a Santee personal injury attorney, you have come to the right place. Insurance companies don’t want to pay injured people any more than they have to, whether it’s their client or the victim of an accident caused by their client. You only have one chance to get a settlement that will compensate you for your injuries and damages, and after that you are responsible for all future medical bills. Insurance companies have lawyers and claims adjustors working on their side, so you need someone on your side to make sure you get a fair deal. We have two decades of experience, and we know how to deal with insurance companies. Michael Pines learned how the insurance companies work firsthand as a new lawyer right out of the University of California’s Hastings Law School in 1987, because he worked for them. He quickly saw how his clients were profiting from injured people, so he decided to form Michael Pines, APC in 1992. Since then he has been serving accident victims in Southern California communities like Santee and making sure they get a fair chance. You need a good Santee auto accident lawyer who will stand up for your rights. We’re here to represent you.
