I work for Ehline Law Firm. I have earned a reputation as one of California's best-rated motorcycle accident and car accident attorneys. The firm I work for also litigates truck accident cases like SUV Rollovers. I help with big damages and little damages. I take great pride in helping victims with broken bones and other ailments. Many of my clients suffered things like a broken ankle, brain injury, burn injury. I help with victims of catastrophic injury. These people are often vulnerable and helpless. I want to come to their rescue and restore and improve faith in the bar amongst California consumers.

I help victims obtain money damages in cases of negligence. Typically a third party was inattentive and my client was injured. I help recover money damages for the victims. I work on a contingency fee. Practice areas also include Princess cruise ship accident, recreational boating accidents, dog bites, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian and bicycle crashes.

Top Notch San Bernardino Injury Law Firm
I was crossing an intersection in San Bernardino, CA when a big-rig truck ran a red light and t-boned my car. My vehicle spun around in a half-circle and my head was partially ejected from my pick-up truck. I had to be extracted from inside the passenger compartment. The crash left me with crippling pain that shoots into both of my arms and all the way down to my wrists, as well as a large scar on my left forehead. My ER doctors couldn't understand find why I have this constant, horrific pain. My lawyers from Ehline Law Firm help me by getting me the right medical testing on a lien so that my efforts of recovery are in the right direction

Excellent Attorney!
Michael Ehline is actually the most expert and compassionate attorney. I even have always determined him to be honest, set off and extremely knowledgeable. I notably propose Michael Ehline for all prison desires. We met at some point of one of the most hard instances in my existence – seven years later, he's nevertheless in my corner whilst my family wishes him. Best call that I have ever made.

I was in a severe motorcycle accident and suffered a broken foot. I hired Mike Ehline of Ehline Law injury attorneys. I wanted a former Marine as my lawyer since I was a Marine. Mike helped me get a truckload of money for the car crash. I am very happy. He returned all calls and my emails. His staff, including Irene were awesome. I am proud to recommend the services of this personal injury law firm.

Excellent Attorney!!
I got in my very first car accident in my life and was seriously injured. I will just say it was a very stressful time in my life. Michael Ehline definitely helped get me to be at ease. I had confidence in his abilities as a lawyer. He was able to get me the maximum amount for my particular situation for my pain and suffering and my medical and other bills. He seems to be very busy (they say send your business to a busy person). The fact is he always got back to me and always set aside time to explain the car accident legal process to me in layman's terms. I'm really glad I retained Ehline Law Firm and that I read all the other positive reviews on Yelp and went ahead and hired Michael and Irene.

Car Accident Lawyer
Michael and his staff were excellent in helping me recover expenses after being involved in a car wreck, which was definitely not my fault.

The Best Motorcycle Wrongful Death Lawyers
At first I didn't believe it. Attorney Ehline met me at the accident site and took pictures. We thoroughly went over my case. He was a nice dude and he discussed all aspects of wrongful death due to motorcycle accidents. Yeas we lost a lot, but at least we were able to learn how to pay funral expense, and to get money for the house payments and stuff like that.

A Pro With Broad Experience - Truely There For You When Needed
From my initial conversation with him, Michael has to be one of the most honest, kind, and forthcoming lawyers I've discussed and had a good conversation with. I called him anticipating an answering machine, and woke him up in the middle of the night (boy would I have been upset if someone did that to me.... and then didn't even have a urgent case/matter!!!) He was extremely kind and very genuine (with some psychology background, its extremely easy to tell his manners and authenticity were top-notch). This professional is here for you 24/7 and I can guarantee (who knows when) that I will be using him the next time I need legal assistance in such related manners. I called him regarding a potential wrongful illegal detainment (where nothing was subsequently found) even with an invasive search on me, and he was nothing but an all-star. I would have loved for him to represent me in a previous matter when I was living in Arizona (too bad he's not licensed to practice there) as I hired a known 'competent' lawyer that still was far below the ranks of Michael. This guy knows his stuff, he's got broad range of knowledge of International regulations and laws that I can confirm (as I have lived overseas and worked in more countries then I can count) - I've had my fair share of lawyers, talks, and retainment of services, and I have to say Mike deserves all the money he needs to charge as you are getting someone who really can do the research and right-off-the-bat let you know 'where you stand' and wont try to 'wiggle you in' like other lawyers try. While I haven't retained him because I don't have a very probable case, we did have a great chat and he really is down to earth (unlike some lawyers) so thats the only reason for the 4/5 star on kept me informed - because he does keep everyone informed via his free postings online, but I have not retained his services (yet!) so I wouldn't be able to comment on taht aspect - but in regards to being a genuine, very knowledgeable, and extremely well-rounded individual of high-caliber, I would recommend him to anyone who asked for my guidance.... and believe me, I don't really give out recommendations unless I know other individuals will have the same level of high-class service I received, if not better - Michael is one of two individuals I know would do anything to help, enjoys his profession, and is extremely respectful yet far more knowledgeable than most lawyers - the other recommended person? Well that's someone being a medical doctor, so non-applicable. If your thinking of having a lawyer, just call Michael for a chat and you'll see for yourself his quality level and genuine personality compared to other lawyers.

Great Attorney!
This guy is a very knowledgable lawyer and a great advocate as well. he works fast and very effectively with constant communication!
Posted by Rick | July 21, 2008
An excellent attorney....
My supermarket slip and fall case was rejected by four other law offices ("You don't have a case," they said). Michael took a chance on me, and voila, a nice financial settlement occurred a year later. Thanks a lot, Mike, for taking a chance on my case when no one else cared. By the way, Mike is only one of a small number of California lawyers who passed the bar without a law degree. This is a most impressive achievement!
