Put Michael’s warrior ethos to work for you today.

I am very proud I am part of this well-oiled unit” – Michael Ehline.

A word from our founder, Great Leader, Michael Ehline.

I have represented thousands of injured individuals. Before I passed the California State Bar Exam and swore my sacred oath, practicing law in Orange County, and Los Angeles, California, I worked many paralegal jobs.

Most of all, I have gained an incredible sense of well-being and meaning by helping disaffected people with nowhere to turn. I find representing my clients rewarding, spurring me forward to act with great zeal and aggression.

The lawyers and legal team at Ehline Law Firm have the experience, knowledge, and skill to win your serious accident and injury claims. Furthermore, we have the financial wherewithal, funding the most complex injury cases. Trauma differs between individuals, but excellent service and results are directly related to quality legal representation.

I am very proud that I am part of this well-oiled unit. My esteemed, award-winning law offices are comprised of paralegals, litigators, and trial lawyers who will take no prisoners questing justice.

Michael is Ready to Fight Against Injustice

I have an appetite for victory. So when an inattentive, reckless, or intentionally injurious person harms innocent victims, I am ready to fight for justice skillfully using my law license. I have successfully prosecuted all types of personal injury law cases in California. Furthermore, I have argued and won state appeals, including federal and state court civil litigation.

Consequently, I have fought with some of the country’s largest, most powerful corporations and won. Insurance adjusters, agents, and carriers know I take no prisoners prosecuting plaintiff’s bodily severe injury insurance indemnification claims.

The People’s Lawyer

I am one of few people who have completed the California State Bar Law Office Study Program. I successfully passed the bar in 2005 and began providing legal representation before earning my Juris Doctorate at UWLA. People asked why I went to law school. I said because they waived their LSAT, first-year courses, undergrad requirements, plus, I practiced law by day, simultaneously attending law school classes at night.

My philosophy means staying hungry, climbing higher, conquering the next giant mountain, advocating for consumers every step. Clients know I love my role as the people’s lawyer. These suffering victims know my desired goal is to ‘make it happen” for them. When victims feel bullied, they know I will not shirk from a confrontation. I take my storied U.S. Marine and martial arts history seriously; I am a personal injury warrior in every sense of the word. My motto is “Do or Die.”

No Lazy Attorneys Here

Also, I am not a fatso, butterball attorney. I am into physical fitness. I know that laziness remains a common factor with heart disease and failing health. I urge my staff, clients, and others to undertake physical resistance exercises, consuming proper daily nutrition regularly.

The strength of the body is the strength of the mind. So I still practice Jiu-Jitsu and teach victims firearms safety classes. Additionally, I have cool hobbies, and I not only protect people’s legal rights; I teach them physical self-protection from evildoers.

I think that my success is the following formula

  1. Positive mental attitude
  2. ‘Do or Die’ Spirit and Discipline
  3. Legal Training and Intense Preparation
  4. Setting and Keeping Goals.
