You or someone you love was injured in accident at sea. You spent the time trying to find the best possible maritime lawyer to represent you. And then all of a sudden, a brand new lawyer is handling your case! Huh? Sounds strange, but it’s too common of an occurrence. Non-maritime lawyers masquerading as maritime lawyers to sign up cases, and then refer them to other lawyers. Don’t let this happen to you.

Admiralty and Maritime law is a complicated field of legal practice. It can involve accidents that take place on the high seas, equipment failure, workers’ compensation, and many other matters that should not be left to the hands of any random individual claiming they can do a good job. When looking for a maritime attorney to represent you, you need lawyers that have years of experience and have reached successful verdicts in their cases. What happens with many firms is that they tend to refer out maritime cases. Unsuspecting clients believe their attorney is helping them, but in reality, some other lawyer does the work.

So who can you trust? When searching for an attorney on the web, most professionals will claim to have the experience you need to resolve your case favorably. But what do you really know about them? While an internet search might provide you with the names of several attorneys who claim to focus on admiralty and maritime law, the search will never tell you what the actual lawyer can bring to your case that will ensure the highest likelihood that the claim resolves in your favor; their past cases, their knowledge, their overall zeal to strive for the best possible outcome for each and every case, their personal interest in the clients themselves. While anyone can make an empty claim, the real proof lies in the work of the law firm.

The maritime attorneys at Lipcon, Margulies, Alsina & Winkleman P.A. know how frustrating it can be to deal with a legal professional that does not seem to know what they are doing or who refuses to let you get involved with your own case.
