We Stand For Our Clients’ Well-Being Through The Jones Act And Federal Maritime Laws

For more than 100 years, the Jones Act has protected the rights of injured seamen. Alaska was not yet a state when Congress passed this law, but the law was specifically reworded to include Alaska once statehood came about in 1959. Other important federal maritime laws also apply to Alaska.

Our attorneys are deeply knowledgeable about all legal protections for hardworking commercial fishermen, fish processors, deckhands and other maritime employees, such as operators of tugs, barges and the ferries of the Alaska Marine Highway.

We fight for our clients’ rights to receive all benefits they are eligible for after suffering injuries or losing loved ones to fatal accidents at sea, on ships docked at the shore, and in other maritime-related situations.
