William L. Banning - Two time selectee for the 2011 California Super Lawyers list. His primary area of practice is maritime law.

Hardworking men and women make their living on oceans, harbors and inland waters, including seamen, longshoremen, commercial fishermen, commercial divers, and oil and gas workers. When head injuries lead to brain damage or spinal cord injuries result in paralysis, they face the end of their careers. These professionals and their families need help with claims under the Jones Act.

Whether we are representing residents, vacationers, maritime professionals or their loved ones grieving a wrongful death, most are unaware of their options and rights. On their behalf, we educate them on Jones Act and 905b claims and pursue multiple avenues toward maximizing their compensation.

All accident claims at our firm are handled on a contingency basis. We advance all costs to prove your case. If we do not recover, you will owe no fees or costs.
