Adrienne M. Hines

The best part of Adrienne M. Hines’ day as an attorney at Kademenos, Wisehart, Hines, Dolyk & Wright Co. LPA is when a client walks out of a meeting feeling like the weight of the world has been lifted from their shoulders. She knows she’s been able to offer an honest, hardworking person some hope that the legal process might work in their favor.

Someone who suffers a serious workplace injury often may experience financial instability. It’s Hines’ goal to help him or her make his or her life whole again.

Adrienne M. Hines has nearly 20 years of experience fighting for the rights of injured workers. For the last decade, she has maintained a Specialist Certification in Workers’ Compensation through the Ohio State Bar Association. Through that specialization and her extensive practical experience representing injured workers, she has acquired a detailed knowledge of the Ohio workers’ compensation system and claims process. She applies that knowledge toward getting the best possible outcome for each person she represents.

Hines is an Ohio native who had an interest in law from a young age. That interest was solidified when her mother married a lawyer, and she became exposed to the law on a daily basis through her family. She worked in her stepfather’s law firm as a high school and college student, and while earning her law degree at the University of Toledo. Also during law school, Hines worked for noted federal bankruptcy Judge Richard Speer in the Northern District of Ohio.

After law school, Hines joined the law firm of Calhoun, Kademenos, & Childress, which would later become Kademenos, Wisehart, Hines, Dolyk & Wright Co. LPA. She initially began practice as a workers’ compensation lawyer. Under Judge Speer’s encouragement, she expanded her practice to become a bankruptcy lawyer so she could use her skills to advocate for people who had hit difficult financial times. She knew she could offer assistance to her clients, who needed the kind of help bankruptcy can provide to get them back on their feet.
