The Sinas Dramis Law Firm’s History as Lansing’s Personal Injury “Lawyer of the Year”
Best Lawyers was first published in 1983 but didn’t start designating the lawyer with the highest feedback from their peers as a “Lawyer of the Year” until 2009. That inaugural year, Sinas Dramis Managing Partner, George Sinas, was selected as the Lawyer of the Year in the area of plaintiffs’ personal injury law for the Lansing Michigan region. George also won this designation in 2014. Jim Graves went on to earn this prestigious designation in 2011, 2012, and 2021. In addition to winning the Lansing plaintiffs personal injury title of Lawyer of the Year for 2024, Bryan Waldman won the award in 2015, 2017, 2020, and 2022. In other words, a Sinas Dramis lawyer has received the highest recognition from their peers and Best Lawyers as the top plaintiffs’ personal injury lawyer in Lansing for 10 of the 16 years that a Lawyer of the Year has been recognized. This continued recognition is evidence of the law firm’s dedication to civil justice and serving Michigan residents in need of representation.

I can say without a doubt that the only reason things ended in a favorable manner was due to the work Bryan and his team did.” – Bryan’s Former Client
