Our attorney, Richard Martin, will be a speaker at the Louisiana Association for Justice’s 2017 “High Stakes on the High Seas” Maritime Law Conference in August. He will be educating his fellow attorney colleagues on the subject of “Personal Jursidiction Under the Federal Procedure Rules.”
Richard is a veteran trial lawyer with over 30 years of experience handling personal injury and wrongful death cases for maritime claims. His maritime litigation experience includes claims under the Jones Act, Section 905b of the Longshoremen and Harbor Workers Compensation Act, the Extension of Admiralty Jurisdiction Act, the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, the Death on the High Seas Act, the Public Vessels Act and the Suits in Admiralty Act. He has also litigated claims under the Federal Tort Claims Act and the Alien Tort Claims Act. He has had substantial success in “brown and blue water” maritime cases. His understanding of how to try and win these cases is enhanced by his personal work experience as a deckhand on towboats and offshore boats, a roustabout worker on rigs and platforms, and as a U.S. Navy bridge watch standing officer on an aircraft carrier.
