Our Firm: Cruise Ship Injury Lawyers and Attorneys – Crew Advocacy
The Crew Member & Maritime Advocacy Center was started in 2004 by Julio J. Ayala. Mr. Ayala started his legal career in 1993. Having acquired vast experience in handling crew member personal injury claims, Mr. Ayala started his own practice in 1997 dedicated exclusively to representing maritime personal injury victims against the major cruise lines and cargo ship operators headquartered in Miami, Florida. On July 2010 the Crew Member & Maritime Advocacy Center reorganized and Mr. Ayala assumed full control over the firm. Presently the Crew Member & Maritime Advocacy Center counts on the support of 4 attorneys and 10 support staff dedicated to offering the personalized attention each client expects and deserves. With offices less than one mile from the Port of Miami directly across from the Miami Dade County Court House and another in Coral Gables near the hotels and hospitals that house and treat crew members, clients are within a short distance from our offices.
