Maritime Attorneys in Boston MA with More Than 50 Years of Top Nationwide Results

Our maritime law firm is like how many of our clients continue long family traditions of working onshore or offshore. We are committed to carrying on a family mission started more than 50 years ago of being one of the best maritime law firms in the nation handling claims for workers, passengers and anyone injured or killed on the water.

Before speaking with the insurance company, before filling out a report, before signing or agreeing to anything—call our maritime attorneys first. We will tell you what maritime employers do not want you to know about your rights, and as experienced trial attorneys, we will make sure you get what you need and deserve. We offer confidential free advice to any maritime worker or crew member hurt on the job and the families of maritime workers killed or lost at sea.
