Our California maritime lawyers at the law office of Brodsky Micklow Bull & Weiss LLP represent people and businesses injured or aggrieved in any type of maritime activity or dispute. While those words offer a broadly accurate summary of what we do, their sheer simplicity might mislead you as to both the scope of our work and the nature of our clientele.
Whether you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a maritime accident, your claim for hull insurance has been denied by your insurance company, or you are a marine business with a nonpaying vessel owner, we can help you. Call the Northern California/Bay Area-Los Angeles/Long Beach-San Diego maritime law firm of Brodsky Micklow Bull & Weiss LLP, and find out what a California maritime lawyer can do for you.
From law offices in the Bay Area, Long Beach and San Diego, our highly trained and experienced admiralty attorneys can recover damages under maritime law for businesses and persons being denied their rights under contract or trespassed upon, or injured at sea, on coastal waterways, and on inland navigable waters. The vessels involved can range from the mightiest supertanker right on down to a kayak or canoe, if injury or even death should result from an accident.
Few of our clients, and even fewer lawyers, seem to be aware that when maritime activities or commerce are involved, the rules of civil litigation can change drastically. The guiding principle for our maritime clients, is simple — if the dispute or accident involved activities on or related to the navigable waters, you must consider maritime jurisdiction, and whether maritime law may apply, help you, or hurt you. It can offer enormous advantages to those who know how to use it. The many millions we have saved and recovered for our clients reinforce our guiding principle emphatically.
We know what steps to take in fighting against entities that have sophisticated corporate teams, in-house counsel, and/or powerful insurance companies. We work hard and fight hard for you. If we are unable to help you, we will find someone who can. We know better, and our clients benefit from it.
Our California maritime lawyers have among them more than 100 years of combined experience in the field. They chose maritime law, they teach it today in California law schools, they publish articles about it, and they are hard at work for clients trying cases in state and federal courts and hunting down evidence in ports all over the world.
