Aggressive Protection of Your Rights
Our lawyers have years of experience protecting the rights of masters, pilots, engineers, deckhands, oil rig workers, fishermen, sport fishermen, divers, whale watchers, recreational boaters, boat passengers, jet skiers and seamen of all types.
Many of our severely injured clients have been left "high and dry" by their employers following an accident, with no money or access to medical care. We are proud of our ability to help our clients obtain the best medical care, compensation for lost wages and other benefits they deserve.
When we represent a client, we don't just treat him or her like just another case. We treat our clients like friends, working hard to improve their lives after a serious injury.
