About Attorney Donald D. Hiney
Don Hiney has been practicing law in San Diego
county for the past 26 years. He graduated Cum Laude
from San Diego State University with a BA in sociology and received
his Juries Doctorate from California Western School of Law in 1979.
Don began his practice as a general practitioner successfully
litigating all types of cases including personal injury, medical
malpractice, wrongful death, nursing home and elder abuse,
criminal defense, sexual harassment, wrongful termination and
contract litigation (especially in the matters concerning real
Over the years Don has had much trial experience
doing what most attorneys never do - taking his cases to trial
whenever it is necessary. While many attorneys find trial work
intimidating and avoid it at all costs, even to the detriment of the
clients case, Don enjoys the challenge. He is a member of the
American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) whose main purpose is to
foster improvement in the ethical and technical standards of
practice in the field of advocacy to the end that individual
litigants may receive more effective representation.
Only 1% of the attorneys in the United States are members of this
organization. An attorney must be nominated to member-ship by
an attorney member. The proposed member must have a minimum of
20 superior court trials and the nominating committee takes the time
to research his or her credentials including ethical and moral
conduct and standing with the state bar, etc. Only after
careful investigation does ABOTA make the offer of membership.
ABOTA also affords its members the opportunity to meet and get to
know attorneys who are experts in all fields of litigation.
This enables Don to refer clients who have a case out of his fields
of expertise to an attorney who can competently represent them.
