Published LLF Maritime and Federal Court Articles

Both Frank Lamothe and Richard Martin are considered some of the best admiralty and maritime lawyers in the state and are extremely skilled trial lawyers who have won numerous multi-million dollar maritime and offshore personal injury and wrongful death cases in both state and federal courts in Louisiana as well as in other states. Their litigation experience has involved offshore cases, including fixed platforms, jack-up rigs, semi-submersibles and drill ships. They have also handled inland water cases involving inland drilling barges, crew boats, pleasure vessels, oceangoing vessels and towboats.
