Middlebury Maritime Law Information

Do You Need a Maritime Lawyer?

Maritime law, also known as admiralty law, is a group of laws that governs navigation and commerce on navigable waters. Maritime legal matters should only be handled by an experienced Middlebury maritime attorney who can best protect your legal rights.

Different Types of Maritime Matters

Maritime and admiralty law encompasses such a broad scope of situations, such as cruise ships and its passengers, seamen, oil rig workers and even recreational boaters. Specific cases can range from employment situations on the water, accidents, employment and even the creation of contracts.

When it comes to legal issues that occur on national or international waterways, trust only in skilled maritime law attorneys to help protect your legal rights.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
