There are a lot of San Diego personal injury law firms to choose from, but we like to think we stand out at the Pines Salomon Injury Lawyers, APC. because we’re different from the others.  Not only do we help our clients receive proper compensation for their personal injuries, but we also put a human face on the law.

When Michael Pines began his legal career, he represented the insurance companies he now fights against on behalf of his clients.  More often than not, he saw how the law was being used against the very people he believed that it was designed to protect.  When he saw insurance adjusters bragging about how they’d convinced grieving parents to agree to pennies on the dollar for their children’s wrongful death settlements, he knew he was in the wrong place.

Since 1992, our personal injury attorneys at the Pines Salomon Injury Lawyers, APC. have been fighting for the people.  Now, when those injured in automobile accidents need financial help, or for the families that need to know that the loss of a loved one could have been prevented, there is a personal injury law firm in San Diego that is on their side.

Michael Pines and his team have kept their promise.

Mr. Pines asked me whether I was in the same shape as before my accident – this I had to deny. My back was still hurting and he stated that, if I would accept his services, he would ensure that I would get the therapy I needed […] and that all bills would be paid and my health restored. Michael Pines and his team have kept this promise.

Herminio Salamante

I cannot say enough good things about my experience

My friend recommended Michael Pines to me and I was super happy. They took very good care of me, treated me very nice, and I got a very nice check. I had a lot of back pain and the doctor they referred me to helped me so much! I didn’t have to pay anything when I was getting treatment. I was so happy, that I’ve referred another friend to Michael pines.

Michael worked non-stop, nothing deterred him

After falling on a cruise ship and being emergency evacuated to a hospital in Mexico, I was scared and needed help, especially because I am 89 years old. Michael worked non-stop, through the weekend, communicating internationally with stubborn insurance personnel who tried to put up roadblocks every step of the way.
