Mr. Hines devotes a large portion of his practice to defending civil rights and advocating for prisoner’s rights and the rights of the wrongfully convicted, having successfully obtained compensation for scores of victims of sexual abuse, excessive force, religious discrimination, false arrest, false imprisonment, malicious prosecution, police harassment, and denial of medical care.

Mr. Hines also zealously represents victims involved in motor vehicle accidents, trip and fall accidents, construction accidents, and victims who have suffered catastrophic injuries or death. Additionally Mr. Hines represents individuals and business in litigating a broad spectrum of commercial, contract, real estate, and employment matters, including representing Uber drivers in a New York class action lawsuit filed against Uber alleging misclassification of their employment status, wrongful conversion of their gratuities, breach of contract, false advertising, and other claims.
