Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman, P.A. is made up of attorneys who are nationally recognized industry leaders in the field of maritime and admiralty law. Our team of cruise lawyers has well over two centuries of combined experience, has successfully handled over 3,000 cases, and has recovered over 300 million dollars in damages for our clients. Several of our attorneys have even been selected to “Best Lawyers” ® by US News & World Report every year as far back as 2016.

Every year, Super Lawyers® selects attorneys from all firm sizes and over 70 practice areas throughout the United States. Those selected have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The Super Lawyers list recognizes no more than 5 percent of attorneys in each state.

It is with great honor we announce that 8 of Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman, P.A.’s attorneys have been selected to Super Lawyers® for 2024. Attorneys Charles Lipcon, Jason Margulies, Michael Winkleman, and Jacqueline Garcell have been re-selected for Super Lawyers for 2024. While, Carol Finklehoffe has received her first recognition as a Super Lawyer, and Stefanie Black, Daniel Grammes and Alex Perez have all been named to Super Lawyers ® Rising Stars all for the first time.

All eight maritime injury attorneys received recognition for their specialization in Transportation and Maritime Law. In addition, Lipcon and Margulies both received recognition for their knowledge and experience in General Personal Injury.
