Experienced Litigation Attorneys
Our attorneys bring nearly a century of combined experience to every legal matter they handle. Our attorneys are accomplished litigators, with the experience to handle complex criminal, real estate, personal injury and civil litigation cases. Our lawyers regularly provide legal advice and representation in diverse areas, ranging from maritime claims and environmental actions to civil rights and commercial contracts. We also handle appeals of cases through our appellate law practice.
Our attorneys represent local, national, and international corporations in business matters, construction disputes, and product liability cases. Some of our highest profile cases involve disputes between our clients and state and federal government agencies. These cases often concern private property rights, business and construction litigation, and commercial fishing.
In addition, our lawyers have a special interest in admiralty and maritime litigation involving salvage actions. David Paul Horan, our senior and managing partner, is widely regarded as one of the nation’s leaders in the field of maritime salvage. He also successfully defended Mel Fisher against federal and state claims that firmly established rights to salvage. He has litigated salvage cases involving RMS Titanic, SS Central America, the Spanish Treasure Fleets, and many other historic vessels and aircraft.
