Maritime Law

Admiralty and Maritime law is a highly specialized legal practice which encompasses many diverse aspects of marine commerce, employment, recreation, transportation and personal injury and wrongful death actions occurring on navigable waters and the high seas. This field of law has its own set of complex jurisdictional and procedural rules, all of which require particular knowledge and expertise.
