The Negligence Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan has honored George T. Sinas with the Cline & Schreier Award for Excellence for his excellence in personal injury representation and thought-leadership on Michigan’s auto no-fault system. Sinas, managing partner of the Sinas Law Firm in Lansing, accepted the award at the Section’s annual dinner and reception honoring past chairpersons, held on June 14 at the Detroit Golf Club.

A graduate of the University of Michigan and Wayne State University Law School, Sinas has dedicated his practice to representing the seriously injured and their medical providers, with a particular focus on motor vehicle cases. When the No-Fault Act was passed, Sinas understood early on the system’s significance in preserving the right of access to quality healthcare, especially for those devastated by auto-related tragedy. He has steadfastly advocated for and maintained the stance that no-fault law is a right that deserves protecting, and is continually recognized for these efforts.

In 2017 and 2018, Leading Lawyers named him as one of Michigan’s “Top 10 Plaintiffs’ Personal Injury Lawyers.” Michigan Defense Trial Counsel presented him with its “Most Respected Advocate Award” in 2015; and in 2014, the Michigan Association for Justice named him “Champion of Justice.” In 2009 and again in 2014, he was named “Lansing, Michigan Personal Injury Litigator of the Year” by Best Lawyers in America, the first such distinction awarded a Lansing personal injury attorney.

Sinas has authored two textbooks and articles about Michigan’s no-fault system, and teaches this topic as an adjunct professor at Michigan State University College of Law. He also was instrumental in the formation of the Coalition Protecting Auto No-Fault (CPAN) and currently serves as General Counsel, as well as serves on the Board of Directors for the Brain Injury Association of Michigan (BIAMI).
