HERD LAW FIRM SPECIALIZES IN MARITIME LAW AND BETTER UNDERSTANDS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS

Maritime Law in the United States is mostly related to federal rather than state law, since the open ocean is generally considered to be international territory, whereas the coastal waters and bays, as well as inland waters, are considered waters of the United States. One unusual aspect of US maritime law is the Limitation of Liability Act, which can limit the ship owner’s liability to the value of the ship (and pending freight), to be determined post-casualty, if the ship-owning company can prove it had no privity or knowledge of the deficient conditions leading to the casualty, mechanical or otherwise.

My practice in maritime law is the reason I am licensed to take cases not only in Texas but also in Kentucky, Louisiana and New York.  It plays into my willingness to (and love for) travel, so please reach out if you are dealing with a maritime issue that requires complex legal knowledge and experience.  I am one of few maritime attorneys that have worked on both the defense and plaintiff side of a case and this allows me to bring a unique perspective to handling your claim.   Understanding that you are facing a difficult time ahead, our legal team is committed to treating you with care and compassion.
