We Will Aggressively Protect

Your Rights

Our lawyers have years of experience protecting the rights of individuals and small businesses on shore and masters, pilots, engineers, deckhands, oil rig workers, fishermen, sport fishermen, divers, whale watchers, recreational boaters, boat passengers, jet skiers and seamen on the waters of the United States and seven seas worldwide.

Many of our severely injured clients have been left high and dry by their employers or their insurers following an accident, with no money or access to medical care. That’s where we step in and make a difference. When we represent a client, we do not treat them like just another case. We treat our clients like friends, working hard to improve their lives after an injury.
