Working Knowledge Of Maritime Law

There are specialized laws that apply to accidents that happen on or near the water. These laws are substantially different than the personal injury and workers' compensation laws that apply to land-based accidents. If you hope to get fair compensation for a maritime injury, it is critical that you choose an attorney who truly understands maritime law.

At the law firm of Tabak, Mellusi & Shisha, we know maritime law, not only in theory, but in practice. Our team includes lawyers who served as engine officers and deck officers on blue water ships. We are the only U.S. maritime law firm with lawyers who are former merchant marine officers and who maintain their licenses in continuity status.
