George T. Sinas
George Sinas is a personal injury attorney with decades of experience representing injured individuals throughout Michigan. Much of his practice is dedicated to Michigan auto no-fault insurance litigation. In fact, George is considered one of Michigan’s foremost experts in auto no-fault law.
Having studied and reviewed nearly every case and piece of legislation that arose both before and after Michigan auto no-fault law came into effect during his formative years, George has been a tireless advocate for victims of automobile, semi-truck, motorcycle, and other accidents to which Michigan’s auto no-fault law applies.
In addition to his fierce, steadfast representation of his clients, George believes in the importance of educating others about their rights under the auto no-fault system. He is an adjunct professor at Michigan State University College of Law, where he teaches a course on Michigan Auto No-Fault Law. George was also instrumental in the creation of the Coalition Protecting Auto No-Fault (CPAN), an organization bringing together more than 20 major medical groups, consumer groups and ordinary citizens who are the main stakeholders in the protection and preservation of Michigan’s unique auto no-fault insurance system.
George regularly participates in workshops, lectures at conferences and writes articles and practice guides for the benefit of the legal community, ordinary citizens, persons injured in auto accidents, case managers and others in the medical community.
George is proud to continue his father’s tradition of providing quality legal representation for the people of Michigan in personal injury and auto no-fault matters — a commitment to which the Sinas Dramis Law Firm has been recognized since 1951.
