  As pioneers in the field of employment law, and having served an instrumental role in some of Michigan’s most important municipal law cases, we have developed a niche in representing individual employees, employers, businesses and governmental entities in employment rights cases and the wide array of legal matters involving municipalities and other governmental entities.  
  Whether our client is an employee or employer, a municipality or a business with a dispute with a governmental entity, or an accident victim with a catastrophic injury, our goal is simple: To provide our clients with effective, high quality legal representation in pursuit of the best attainable result or solution.  
  While we have earned a reputation among Michigan lawyers as being among the best in representing individual employees in employment rights disputes and employment litigation, we are one of the only law firms in southeast Michigan to be recognized by US News & World Report’s Best Law Firms as one of the best on both sides of the management-employee fence.  We have three lawyers who are Fellows in the prestigious College of Labor and Employment Lawyers, and five of our lawyers have been recognized by Best Lawyers in America and Michigan SuperLawyers as being among the best when it comes to employment rights law and employment litigation.  Because of our experience on both sides of labor and employment disputes, we can bring multiple perspectives to advising our clients, developing strategies, anticipating potential claims and defenses, and plan for what “the other side” will raise or pursue in a case.  

Our employment law group includes (from the left) Angela Mannarino, Christopher Hogg, Charles Ash, Donald Gasiorek, David Greco, Sam Morgan and David Kotzian.

  With lawyers representing and advising cities, townships and coalitions of governmental entities for over 30 years, we have been recognized byUS News & World Report’s Best Law Firms as one of the best municipal law firms in Michigan.  We have two lawyers recognized byBest Lawyers in America and Michigan SuperLawyers as among the elite attorneys in government and municipal law in Michigan.  We advise our municipal clients on daily legal matters ranging from ordinance drafting, economic development, drafting and negotiating contracts, and we also represent them in court, enforcing ordinances, prosecuting misdemeanors, and handling regional water and environmental litigation. Drawing upon our employment rights group, we also assist our municipal clients with workforce management, policy and collective bargaining agreement interpretation, employee discipline and termination issues, grievances and arbitrations.   Our expertise on the government side also enables our lawyers to be very effective when handling matters for our business and individual clients who have transactions, disputes and/or ordinance enforcement or criminal matters with other municipal and governmental entities.  
  Our municipal law group includes (from the left) David Kotzian, Sam Morgan and Charles Ash (labor & employment), Angela Mannarino, Patrick McCauley, Christopher Hogg and David Greco (municipal prosecutions, township and city attorneys).  
  For over 40 years, Paul Hines has built a reputation as one of the finest medical malpractice and catastrophic personal injury litigators in southeast Michigan, including recognition byBest Lawyers in America and Michigan SuperLawyers.  You won’t see us competing for automobile accident and slip and fall injury clients on freeway billboards or daytime local television commercials.  Our personal injury group handles the complicated, serious injury claims by victims failed by doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers, particularly birth trauma, failure to diagnose treatable conditions and diseases, catastrophic construction injuries, wrongful death and nursing home negligence cases.
