Our firm is consistently recognized by multiple publications as being the best maritime lawyers in the country. While that is nice, it’s gratifying, what’s more important is that general counsels and defense lawyers, they might not like us, but they respect us. Because they know that we take care of our clients, and we get results. We have handled every single type of offshore injury and won.
We have taken on the largest companies that work in the offshore industry and made them, forced them, to take responsibility. I can’t tell you how many times I’m in a mediation and a mediator says “Well, they’re used to paying this guy ‘X.’” And he tells them, “Well, this is Arnold & Itkin, you’re going to have to pay them 10x.” We’re not just some other guy. We’re not just some other firm. We know what we can do for our clients, so we consistently do it—we demand it, we expect it.
