Michael Ehline has also received mention online and in high profile magazines for handling high profile cases such as a famous tour bus accident claim that resulted in lawsuits against several high profile Las Vegas casinos under the doctrine of respondeat superior. In that case, Ehline was able to help a bus passenger obtain a $750,000 settlement, which can be found online at: 38 Trials Digest 8th 15, 2005 WL 2297584 (Cal.Superior).

Ehline Law Firm PC has recovered tens of millions of dollars in some rather large and noteworthy injury cases. In one confidential case, the firm was able to help a badly hurt victim recover $8,700,000. With a record of success like this, it is no wonder Ehline has high ratings on many attorney rated sites and in the relevant peer community. "We offer big law firm results with small firm service, because we are very selective about the types of cases we take. Our staff and firm have the resources to handle anything that is thrown at us," said Ehline.
"It was my training, working in both the criminal, civil rights and other fields of law that helped me become more well rounded than lawyers who only have worked exclusively on injury, or tort cases. I was lucky to be able to learn law in a law office, and not just from some law professor," Ehline observed. "It places myself and the firm at a high level of competency. It also means that we have the know how to shoehorn other relevant legal theories into the case in a creative way, in order to get our clients the most money."
The evidence of success is crystal clear. Ehline has a perfect rating with Personal Injury Warriors International, is a vetted member of the highly elite Circle of Legal Trust, which represents less than one percent (1%) of the legal community worldwide, and is a multiple award winner of the Superlawyers Rising Star award, to name a few. He is also a member of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA), Consumer Attorney Association of California, Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Shootist Lawyers Association, Marine Corps. Association, as well as many other victims' rights and consumer advocacy groups.
