Our firm is known as the top maritime law firm in the country. That means a couple of things. First of all, that means we know this area of law. When you get hurt on the water, the laws are completely different from when you get hurt on land.
If you prepare every case as if it was going to go to trial, as you should, not only are you trial ready, but they know you’re trial ready. When you’re trial ready, that means you have all of the witnesses tracked down that you need to get tracked down. You’ve spent all of the resources that you needed to spend to ensure that the case is in the right place. There’s a difference when someone comes to mediation hoping to settle versus our firm.
When we come to mediation, we don’t hope for settlements—we make them.
If you have a potential maritime case, it is extremely important that you find a maritime trial lawyer. 99% of lawyers out there don’t know anything about maritime. We know maritime law, inside and out, backward and forward, which is a huge advantage to our clients. We know the different equipment. We know the companies. We know the experts they hire. We know what they do. We know their playbook. We know how to beat them. So when someone gets hurt working offshore, they need to contact us right away.
