Ehline Rejoins Comrades at MCA Dinner
Marine Corps to Serving Veterans It's been a long way for Los Angeles' top personal injury attorney Michael Ehline. Of course, this means both literally and figuratively. From Bootcamp nearly three decades ago to becoming an attorney, Ehline's worked about every job you can think of since. And all the while, he never forgot the lessons that his time in the Marine Corps taught him. In addition to personal discipline, a great sense of humor, and working with peers, Ehline brings something else to the table. It's the dedication to those who served that sets him apart. "I can't just sit around and watch my comrades in arms suffer when I can help," Ehline. You've probably seen Michael Ehline in the pages of Leatherneck magazine. In fact, Ehline recently partnered with MMA heavyweight Renato Laranja on a viral blitz showing what he can offer for vets in need. A Defining Role. Furthermore, Ehline was recently a guest of honor at the February 2nd West Coast Marine Corps Association Dinner. In between the excellent meal and catching up with his fellow Devil Dogs, Ehline wanted to offer something that he learned first in the Corps. "I can give back," he said. "I worked my way through reading the law to the Bar, then to my doctorate," he said. "It's been an experience. Now I have the skills to aid my fellow service members." Ehline Law is rated as one of the top personal injury law firms for veterans. And it makes total sense, considering that Ehline is a disabled vet himself. He promises something simple-- an A to Z process for vets and their families. In some cases, the law firm can pay for medical expenses upfront. Besides, he works with this team determining loss of income and severe changes to an injured person's life. He leaves no stone left unturned. "The Marine Corps will always be my first love," he said. Now that he's out of uniform, Michael Ehline wants to give back to the Corps that gave him so much. For more info, contact Michael Ehline at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Best of the Attorney and Hollywood Season
Attorney of the Year Awards. Hollywood Weekly Saturday, December 3rd's Christmas Party for Hollywood Weekly was a blast. Bringing together many of the finest and ritziest citizens of Southern California and beyond it was a chance to wine, dine, and socialize. While the event was a great chance to catch up and rub elbows it was also a chance to understand some of the more prominent spirits of the season. Awards Given to Movers and Shakers. Awards were given to several key individuals that help the greater Los Angeles area go round. These include individuals that tirelessly dedicate themselves towards a variety of goals. Some revolve around Hollywood and the film industry, which remains worthy goals. Others focus in on community philanthropy and service. So the event based in Santa Monica, CA was just down the street from the Ehline offices on 201 Wilshire, which made it convenient for many local attendees to say the least. Santa Monica is famous for Cheech and Chong movies, traffic accidents and celebrities. Michael Ehline was happy to attend the event. And this time it focused on independent films, celebrating the arts, and supporting supporters of Hollywood Weekly. Giving Back. It's this second category that is particularly interesting. In some ways, it would appear that volunteerism is dying in America, especially in larger cities. However, Hollywood Weekly did an excellent job expressing the richness of community spirit existing in Southern California. There is perhaps a no better example of that than local son Michael Ehline. Ehline joined the Marine Corps as a young man and discharged following injury. As a disabled former Marine, he had to decide on how to serve the area that reared him. He took on multiple jobs before reading the law to pass the bar. Through the same manner as Abraham Lincoln, Ehline became a respected fighter for the little guy. "It's not about me," he said, "It's about how to protect people that can't do so themselves." As a result, Ehline has fought and won for accident victims against reckless and drunk drivers, corporations that cut corners, and faceless government agencies. You name them, Ehline Law has taken them on-- and won. Ehline won the 2016 Attorney of the Year Award by Hollywood Weekly. A prestigious award on one of the magazine's most important days of the year. Ehline is humbled by the experience, hoping that it shows how others can also get involved in local service. As a result, Ehline will return to his practice next week with a renewed mission to help the people of Los Angeles.

Helping Wounded and EAS Marines Get Jobs and Training
Near and Dear to the Former Marine Returning to civilian life after military service is a laborious process. It's twice as hard if you saw combat. Every day, hundreds of military vets make this leap. Often they feel alone. Fortunately, with the help of the military, organizations, and kind souls, this process becomes a bit easier. Michael Ehline (left) looks on to the class of vets and active duty personnel with Joseph Low (right) That was the scene down in Camp Pendleton in July. 84 Marines and Sailors attended the Veterans Transition Support "No Cost Transition Program" at the Wounded Warrior Battalion. Among the activities was a 10 hour OSHA Safety Course. Russell Levy, head of the Veterans Transition Support program, set it up for the vets. Secondly, the program continues, including another OSHA Safety course in August, October, and November. Furthermore, there are also other educational programs. For example, these include a LEAN Continuous Improvement Cert, Warehouse Safety Plans, OSHA Record Keeping, VA Home Loan Benefits, and more. Find More Info Former Marine and current LA area injury attorney Michael Ehline were one of the guest speakers. Ehline spoke about how education makes a significant difference both in and out of military service. Also, he tied in the work ethic of the Service with other professions. Many veterans enter various fields. These include factory work, contracting, and white collar jobs like accounting and law. That's what Ehline did, reading the law before passing the bar. In addition, Ehline joined another Marine veteran attorney, Joseph Low, in the discussion. There are many moving parts to the transition back to civilian life. These include the possibility of medical claims revolving around the time in the service. These often carry with the vet well beyond their time of service. Keeping detailed medical records and being in touch with officials offsets some of these issues. "It was a great honor to help my comrades in arms," Ehline said after the event. "They are not alone. We will fight with them." For more information about Ehline Law, please contact our office. Furthermore, we are veteran owned and specialize in aiding vets of all ages.

Ehline Law Leading in Cruise Safety Lobbying
Experts Acting in Washington Cruise ship The Ehline Law Firm APLC carved out its reputation as a leading consumer and travel safety practice in California. The firm's leaders are not content to leave it at that. Michael Ehline, the founding partner of the firm, took his efforts to Washington to improve cruise safety nationwide. His efforts with industry experts and consumer rights groups establish a safer and better experience for all. Ehline worked on this project for years. However, he is not done yet. New legislation in Washington seeks needed to change. Much of the message is simple: allow cruise passengers the same rights as airplane passengers. It seems simple, but the government is slow to adopt these changes. This is especially the case due to heavy pressure from large cruise corporations. This legislation allows passengers to hold the cruise lines responsible for deaths at sea. Furthermore, it will enable passengers a chance to pursue fair compensation. ICV Leads the Fight? One of the leading victims' rights groups, International Cruise Victims, fights its hardest. Michael Ehline is proud to compete with them. The ICV supports a bipartisan bill which strengthens safety laws. The Cruise Passenger Protection Act, or CPPA as reported in FoxNews, goes a long way in the right direction. Many of these protections are common sense, including a requirement that cruise lines notify the FBI within 4 hours of death. It also allows access to surveillance records for victims. Leading Cruise Rights Reform in Washington Michael Ehline is no stranger to reform efforts in DC. His years of experience there led to some changes in the cruise ship industry. His partnership with ICV is one of the most significant accomplishments. "I am proud to be a persistent voice for victims," Ehline said. "Our work isn't finished, but this does give vital rights for passengers and their loved ones." A vote on the legislation is expected soon. Keep it posted here for more information.
