Location

Lipcon, Margulies, Alsina & Winkleman, P.A., is located in downtown Miami, Florida. Our offices are situated in One Biscayne Tower, along South Biscayne Boulevard, and are less than half a mile from the Port of Miami’s main terminals. Our office building overlooks Miami’s cruise passenger facilities. Although we are based in Miami, we serve clients across the globe.

Our firm is just minutes away from one of the busiest passenger seaports in the world: PortMiami. PortMiami hosted over four million cruise passengers in 2012 alone. The facility’s seven cruise ship terminals are among the most modern in the world and include the ability to accommodate “mega ships” – ships capable of carrying 5,000 or more passengers. The terminal facility offers executive VIP lounges, a high-tech security screening facility, airline-style counters and an airport-type baggage conveyor system. The transportation facility also houses a one-stop federal multi-agency facility to process passengers. Passengers on any of the cruise lines served by PortMiami will find our offices conveniently located and within reach.

Our firm is also located only six blocks from the Wilkie D. Ferguson, Jr. United States Federal Courthouse Building, which houses the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. The federal courthouse facility provides accessible access to accommodate all clients who wish to attend hearings and trials.

Arrival by Air

Our offices are located approximately 20-30 minutes from Miami International Airport (MIA) based on normal traffic conditions. Fort Lauderdale – Hollywood International Airport (FLL) is approximately 21 miles north of the city of Miami. The travel time to and from FLL can vary heavily based on the time of day, but normally does not exceed 45 minutes.

Hotel

A variety of hotel accommodations are available just minutes from our offices. Virtually every major hotel brand has a residence facility located within two miles of the cruise terminal and our law firm. All hotels offer complimentary shuttle service to and from our offices for your convenience.

PortMiami

Since Miami is the departure destination of choice for cruises departing to the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Mexico and South America, it is also a prime location for cruise passengers and travelers to embark on their desired vacations. Over four million cruise passengers utilized the facility’s seven ultra-modern docks in 2012. PortMiami is also currently host to 12 major cruise lines, including:

  • Azamara Cruises
  • Carnival Cruise Lines
  • Celebrity Cruises
  • Costa Cruises
  • Crystal Cruises
