From the beginning, our firm has been dedicated to delivering superior legal services to our clients. Our motto, ‘Integrity First, Compassion, and Excellence in All We Do’ is more than just a phrase, it truly sums up our commitment to each and every client who walks through our door. Because we believe satisfying results come first, we work tirelessly to ensure that each case and each client receives our full attention.

We are proud of the work of our team and we believe it is important to celebrate the recognitions they receive, especially when they are so prestigious. Thus, we could not be more excited to announce that Charles R. Lipcon and Jason Margulies have been honored with the distinction of 2018 Best Lawyers in America. This award is an incredible honor in the legal world, recognizing only the top 4% of practicing lawyers in the nation. The process for nomination and selection is conducted entirely by peer review, wherein the selected lawyers are given a thorough and all-encompassing evaluation. In addition to receiving high marks in the peer review process, nominated lawyers must also be in good standing with the ethics committee of their state bar. The rigorous and detailed nature of the review process is a testament to the respect that this title endows.

Our firm is the only law firm in Miami that handles cruise ship passenger and crew claims on behalf of injured plaintiffs, with multiple named attorneys.  This unique achievement means that our team is well prepared to help clients navigate through even the most challenging cases, to receive the results that they deserve.

Attorney Lipcon was first named to the Best Lawyers List in 2015. This marks the third year that he will be listed. We are proud that our founder, who brings his knowledge from over 40 years of practice in maritime law, is once again being honored for his contributions to the industry. In addition to his successful legal practice, Attorney Lipcon authored the book Unsafe on the High Seas, which offers vacationers a guide to safe cruise line travel as an extension of his life’s work in the courtroom.

Attorney Margulies was first named to the Best Lawyers list last year, making this his second year receiving this highly coveted distinction. For over two decades, Attorney Margulies has practiced maritime law. These years of experience have sculpted the depth and nuance of his understanding, while developing his reputation as a trusted source. He regularly speaks with news media on cruise safety and legal matters.
