Los Angeles Maritime Law

Our Los Angeles maritime law attorneys handle a wide range of maritime matters, from maritime liens to vessel financing, operation, construction and re-building disputes. Also called “admiralty law,” maritime law is a separate body of law under the U.S. legal system. Our lawyers work to stay up to date on changes in admiralty law, including understanding the complexities and nuances of legislative changes related to the Jones Act and other significant maritime laws.

The Lanier Law Firm is well-placed to handle maritime law matters from our Los Angeles office, which conveniently and effectively serves clients in many maritime disputes on the West Coast, as well as the Pacific Rim and elsewhere. We handle cases involving both “brown-water” vessels and ocean-going vessels.

Our Los Angeles maritime law practice handles claims of all kinds for hundreds of clients. We have represented and achieved resolutions on behalf of ship owners, ship captains, and crew members. Our past successful cases include a claim by a ship’s captain against the vessel’s owners, who denied the captain his wages and completions bonus after firing him; representing the widow and family of a commercial seaman who died when his ship capsized and sank; representing another mariner who was injured in a negligent rescue attempt when a vessel capsized; and multiple cases representing crew members who have suffered disabling personal injuries.
