Ehline Law Firm Walks the Walk Alongside Renato Laranja

During his service in the United States Marine Corps, Michael Ehline learned more than he ever knew he wanted to know.

“Ehline got a black beltch in winning you money.”- Renato Laranja

So much in fact, over 25 years later he still lives by the creed instilled in him by the Corps. Ehline started Judo at age 6 and he has stayed involved in the MMA community as part of his fighting spirit.

“I knew the best guys I had ever met in the Corps., and in martial arts,” Ehline said, “I want to help warriors in any way I can.”

Ehline is currently a disabled former Marine, working his way into law after military service. After leaving the Corps, he did a number of blue collar jobs before reading the law– being admitted to the Bar the same way Abraham Lincoln did.

All of this added to his original idealism drilled into him as a former Marine.

“I wanted to make sure that whatever I did after service, I was the best,” he said.

And Ehline meant every word.

The Ehline Law Firm is currently one of the most respected personal injury, motorcycle, and car accident firms in California. Ehline himself is the recipient of several awards for outstanding service, especially for veterans. He offers a variety of services for vets, including a promise never to take a dime unless he recovers for them.

“I know what injury means,” he said. “How helpless you can feel without a comrade. I vowed to never let any of my clients feel that helplessness.”

“I fight and win for them.”

Ehline has a top-tier staff to support him in his cases, but decided in December to make a change. So he enlisted respected BJJ fighter Renato Laranja to spread the message. Laranja is known for dozens of major mixed martial arts victories and for his taunts towards other fighters and comedy legends like one of the Diaz Brothers, for example.

Meeting together, the expert lawyer and the expert fighter shared notes. After a conversation, Ehline was convinced.

“Renato definitely taught me a few things,” he said. “I’m just glad I didn’t pass out from that chokehold.”

Inspired and re-energized from his bout with the champ, Ehline vowed to continue his fight for military members and their families.

“I want to be that champ for you,” Ehline said. Renato says: “Ehline got a black beltch in winning you money.” 

Ehline is presently running an ad campaign in Leatherneck Magazine and he has also enlisted the help of inactive U.S. Marine Nava the Beast. He has also announced the grand opening of his Torrance location as part of his service to this great state and country.

January is Birth Defects Prevention Awareness Month

Understanding the Key Causes of Birth Defects

Birth defects are not a relic of the past. Defects, both mental and physical affect nearly 3 percent of all live births, according to the federal government. Some of the largest causes of such defects are unwitting exposure to chemicals and drugs by the mother, causing severe injury to the baby to be.

Of course, there are other causes for birth defects as well. Many physicians and pediatricians agree that some of the key causes of such defects include:

  • Genetic factors. This includes potential recessive genes from one or both parents.
  • External conditions. This can include a number of factors, including exposure to chemicals or adverse stress. Altogether, this is one of the largest factors. In some cases, smoking and drinking by the mother cause the defects.
  • Mother’s age. The risk of severe birth defects increases dramatically for mothers over the age of 40.
  • Issues at birth. This could include the very last stages of pregnancy or even in the process of childbirth itself. Errors made by physicians or severe physical strain during birth could cause issues for children just entering into life. This sometimes includes the use of medical implements harming the baby– often including limbs, or drugs.
  • Early delivery. In some cases, babies born too early may not be fully developed. This may happen due to issues with the fetus itself. In other cases, this is done due to a risk to the mother’s help. Furthermore, this often happens unexpectedly. In these cases, the risk of defects is much higher, as well as the risk of premature death.
  • Understanding the Legal Ramifications

    That is why activists declared January as the national Birth Defects Prevention Awareness Month. If you are a parent whose infant was affected by exposure by chemicals or drugs, you have legal options. No baby deserves injury due to no fault of its own.
