On June 11, 2018, the Brain Injury Association of Michigan (BIAMI) announced its election of Tom Sinas as Secretary of the Board of Directors. As a Grand Rapids personal injury attorney, his experience skillfully working with and steadfastly representing the brain injured make him an ideal candidate for this role. Brain Injury Association of Michigan President, Tom Constand, says of Sinas’s election as BIAMI Secretary,
“Tom’s willingness to join the Board as Secretary is a coup for the Association. His long involvement with BIAMI, vast professional knowledge and personal experience representing brain injury survivors and their families, and commitment to the benefits of Auto No-Fault will prove of enormous value in our work.”
