Our maritime lawyers in Lafayette have extensive experience representing those affected by boating accidents and will not back down when it comes to your rightful compensation.

Premises Liability

We’ve represented clients in Lafayette, Lake Charles, and across Louisiana in product liability cases for over 20 years.

Due to the nature of the field, maritime injury is not necessarily treated the same as the state of residency would treat it. Instead, maritime injuries fall under the jurisdiction of federal laws.
