Michael P. Ehline has an honorable discharge from the United States Marines. He founded Ehline Law Firm after leaving the Marines and owning several small businesses. At any rate, Ehline remains an all-American.
He supports the Second Amendment. Also, Ehline supports the concept of a merit-based society. Michael was born, reared and educated in the Greater Los Angeles area. And that is a reason Ehline loves to ride. Traffic jams are everywhere. But riders can split lanes and get around fast. Plus, the Golden State is vast. Bikes get there faster. The Wind in the face is a bonus of riding along PCH and other coastal areas.
But riding to San Bernardino or Rancho Mirage is just as fun. Everywhere in this state is a potential road trip. Sometimes a bagger bike is best. Other times you might want a rice rocket. Riding is fun for everyone. And for a few, it becomes a way of life.
The freedom of being free is exhilarating. In fact, the freedom to take a new direction led Ehline to the study of law. As a result, he began his legal career as a paralegal, doing law and motion, and complex litigation. Eventually, Ehline went on the California State Bar Law Office Study Program.
Afterward, he passed the Baby Bar (less than an 18% pass). Second, he was admitted to the University of West Los Angeles School of Law. (the same law school his mentor, trial attorney Gary Dordick attended). Of special interest, Gary rides a Harley Davidson too.
As mentioned, he did this before getting his coveted JD. When he graduated, he was addressed as "Esquire" at the ceremony. He also externed under an appellate justice, and under the LA City Attorney Criminal Law and Motion Division.
Make no mistake about it, Ehline had much more real motorcycle lawyer experience upon passing the bar, than students in a school setting. Ehline is a doer. Do or die is his motto.
