Choosing the Right Maritime Attorney

Finding an attorney is easy. Finding the right cruise ship attorney might be a little tougher.

First and foremost, you need to make sure the attorney you hire has the relevant to “cruise ship” experience. Make sure the attorneys you are considering specialize in Jones Act Plaintiff’s litigation work. Your cruise ship attorney needs to know the ins and outs of the law that governs your specific problem.

A general civil personal injury litigator will not have the background or experience to be able to anticipate or prepare for the cruise line or cargo vessel defense strategies and prove costly to your case.
Ask your cruise ship lawyers to cite cases which he has handled that resemble your case. Ask questions.

HOW DO I CHOOSE A ``CRUISE SHIP`` ATTORNEY?

Cruise Ship lawyers need to be carefully chosen or things could go very wrong for you. Here are a few questions that may be helpful to find relevant & excellent cruise ship MARINE attorneys:

Have you had experience with representing crew members or passengers against the cruise lines before? How recently? How often? What was involved? What percentage of your practice is devoted to these kinds of cases?

Will you actually be working on my case? In what way? Will any other persons be doing work on my case? What will they do?

Will you talk to me in plain English when I do not understand “legalese”?

Will you allow me access to my case file at your office?

What are the strengths and weaknesses of my case?

What would you advise me to do about my situation?

Can a timetable be set for my case?

If I hire you, what will you be doing for me, and when and how will we get back in touch with each other?

Is there a statute of limitations, or legal deadline in my case that we must be careful not to miss?

Contact the Florida Bar and ask them if your attorney has had any complaints filed against them by a former client.
At CAC, our cruise ship attorneys will handle your case on a contingent fee basis. This means that if your suit is successful, we receive a percentage as permitted by the Florida Bar which governs lawyers. If we are not successful, we may but never have in the past recover only expenses incurred by our office. A WRITTEN FEE AGREEMENT IS REQUIRED and should read over carefully with your cruise ship lawyer before signing it if you have any questions.
