Unparalleled Maritime Law Experience
At the law firm of Tabak Mellusi & Shisha, we have decades of experience and a record of success in all types of maritime injury claims. From our offices in New York City, we represent victims of maritime accidents throughout the United States and around the world.
Our principal attorneys, Ralph J. Mellusi and Jacob Shisha, are graduates of State University of New York Maritime College. Prior to law school, they acquired an extensive foundation of practical and theoretical knowledge of ships beginning with their respective undergraduate degrees in marine engineering and marine transportation. This was followed by sea-going employment in the engine and deck departments of deep sea and inland vessels.
Their comprehensive knowledge of shipboard operations — above and below deck — provides unique and unparalleled legal advantages. Our firm can frequently analyze and assess cases without the need to call upon experts. When experts are needed, we work hand in hand with them in developing the strongest case presentation possible.
Both attorneys are proctors in admiralty. This is a specialty designation conferred by the Maritime Law Association of the United States and recognized by the American Bar Association. Ralph J. Mellusi has been selected to the list of New York Super Lawyers, and Jacob Shisha has been named to the list of Best Lawyers.

When you retain our firm, your case will not be handed off to a paralegal or inexperienced associate. You will be represented by Mr. Mellusi or Mr. Shisha, often working together.
In representing you, we will commit ourselves to obtaining the best possible outcome. We will protect your rights at all stages of the legal process. Our maritime lawyers and staff will keep you informed of important developments, and we will respond promptly when you call.
