I began my career with Miller, Star and Brodski as a trial attorney in their Civil department. In my first 18 months I tried to completion 27 cases for the firm.
I spent 5 years in private practice after my time at Miller-Star. I then went to work for Fremont Bank, where he was general counsel to the bank for the Bank for 4 years.
I continued as general counsel to the bank for several years after I left and went into private practice in Fremont, California. My practice continued to represent the bank but also branched out into more real estate, criminal, civil litigation and personal injury cases.
In 1999, Mr. Maines moved his practice to El Dorado County, and has continued to provide a full service general practice to clients in California as well as those in other states with interests in California.
