We provide experienced maritime legal representation in all aspects of maritime injury, including injury at sea and shoreside situations, injured fishermen, deckhands, officers, merchant mariners, factory trawler workers, crabbers, ferry workers, longshoremen, cruise ship crewmembers and passengers, and recreational boaters. Maritime injury cases are all we do.

Our Pledge

Our experience includes litigation and claims representing injured workers residing throughout the United States, Mexico, South America, Europe, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Canada, Vietnam, Korea, Hong Kong, Central America, and Thailand.

We give our clients experienced claims representation on a contingency-fee basis. Please see information about Contingency Fees – No Fee Unless You Win on this website. In most cases, we do not charge for recovering medical treatment expenses, wages due, and maintenance (living expense) when these are part of a general damages claim. We also offer the financial resources to fund and pay for very substantial case preparation costs, such as the costs of experts in medical, naval, injury, and damage issues.

We provide immediate, no-obligation telephone consultation for maritime injury cases at the telephone number on this website.
