The attorney who made national news a few months ago by helping clients break back into their foreclosed houses is none other than Encinitas' own Michael T. Pines.
Well, the little take-back-the-house stunt didn't go too well for the families involved, as the houses' new owners and the courts didn't put up with it. And now Pines faces a state bar hearing and possible loss of his license.
Pines has reportedly had several of his own properties foreclosed, including his law office at 732 N. Coast Highway 101 in Leucadia.
NOTE: This is NOT La Jolla personal injury attorney Michael Pines, who is concerned about being confused with the Encinitas break-in artist.
