The Law Firm Behind the Site

The Law Firm Behind the Site

This informational site is brought to you by Sinas Dramis Law Firm, which is headquartered in Lansing, with additional offices in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, metro-Detroit, Michigan and Chicago, Illinois. Founded in 1951, the firm has always championed justice and the people’s right to understand the law.

Michigan Auto No-Fault Attorneys

Sinas Dramis Law Firm immediately understood the significance of the Michigan No-Fault Automobile Insurance Act when it passed in 1973 regarding its impact on Michigan residents. Because of this, we are dedicated to a thorough understanding of every aspect of the Act. As a result, are now a reputable and well-regarded no-fault law firm in Michigan.

With this rich and longstanding history and commitment, our attorneys are thought leaders on Michigan’s complex no-fault system. In fact, George Sinas, Stephen Sinas, and Tom Sinas serve as General Counsel and Associate General Counsel, respectively, for the Coalition Protecting Auto No-Fault (CPAN). This broad-based group of major stakeholders in the no-fault reform debate advocates for the preservation of the system that protects every person injured in car accidents in Michigan. George Sinas, Bryan Waldman, and Stephen Sinas are also adjunct professors of the Michigan No-Fault Insurance Course at Michigan State University College of Law. Furthermore, Joel Finnell has earned many favorable no-fault appellate decisions over the course of his career.

History of the Auto No-Fault Law Digital Library

This site includes the Auto No-Fault Law Digital Library, which is a compilation of case summaries regarding virtually every no-fault decision from Michigan appellate courts over the last 40 years.  The process of summarizing these cases began soon after Sinas Dramis Law Firm senior shareholder, George Sinas, became an attorney in 1975.  At that time, he realized the significance the Michigan no-fault law would have with regard to protecting and caring for those injured in auto accidents in Michigan. Accordingly, he decided to summarize virtually every no-fault appellate decision so that the legal community and public-at-large would have a better understanding of developments in the law.

Soon after George started summarizing no-fault cases, Sinas Dramis Law Firm partner, Tim Donovan, joined in these efforts. George and Tim carried the no-fault case summary torch for many years. To this day, Sinas Dramis Law Firm continues the process of writing no-fault law case summaries, which is largely led by Stephen Sinas and appellate law expert, Joel Finnell.

Autonofaultlaw.com and Public Accessibility

When he joined the firm in 2007, Stephen Sinas led an effort to digitize the case summaries that George and Tim summarized for over 30 years. Rooted in a deep commitment to helping people know the law, the firm decided to make this site freely accessible to the public. While this process took great time and effort, it ultimately resulted in the online accessibility of this wealth of knowledge and analysis. With so many ongoing developments, there is endless information to track and understand. This site intends to provide everyone with an easy way of knowing about the latest no-fault appellate decisions, Supreme Court actions regarding no-fault, proposed no-fault legislation, and more.

“We believe in the value of knowledge. We believe everyone has the right to understand the laws in place to protect them and their loved ones,” Sinas Dramis partner, Stephen Sinas, further explains the firm’s vision of this site. “Analyzing and summarizing every single no-fault decision coming from the Court of Appeals is a major undertaking. But we have no plans to stop. We believe it’s that important. Following any legislative activity regarding no-fault law is also important to us. We share these proposed changes to this unique and important law so the public can better understand it. We hope the public benefits from this site”
