We are a New York City based law firm concentrating in maritime personal injuries throughout the United States.  Our three partners have over 100 years combined experience and each is rated "AV" by Martindale Hubbell, representing "a testament that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence."  We have successfully litigated and tried hundreds of maritime personal injury suits throughout the Country, as well as significant land-based incidents, and have obtained numerous multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients.  Our Firm does not rely on paralegals or assistants to correspond with our clients-- you will always speak with the Partner handling your case.  You are invited to explore our website and to contact us regarding any assistance we can provide.
