“We construct the case by piecing together evidence and testimony, and in doing so, see the science that explains the loss…it is a rare opportunity in the insurance litigation field to both serve our clients and be creative at the same time.”
Since 1992. Paul Hines has successfully tried cases and handled appeals in several states, including Michigan, Ohio, Missouri, Texas, and Colorado. He has been admitted pro hac vice in many other states, representing insurers, corporations, and individuals in product liability, insurance coverage disputes, and negligence claims. Mr. Hines has experience in first and third-party insurance litigation, commercial property subrogation, liability and property insurance coverage, automobile and no-fault litigation, and general civil litigation.
Mr. Hines recently tried an ammonia-fueled, fire-spread case in the state of Ohio. After receiving a multi-million dollar verdict, he negotiated a resolution significantly greater than the verdict. As counsel for plaintiffs, Mr. Hines presently represents more than a dozen worldwide insurers in litigation with Fortune 100 companies. He is often retained by defendants to represent their interests in the context of commercial property subrogation, complex negligence and professional liability/malpractice claims. He has enjoyed recent successes at the Court of Appeals in the areas of trademark infringement and insurance litigation.
