We are pleased to announce that LLF attorney Richard M. Martin, Jr. will be a speaker at the American Association for Justice 2019 annual convention in San Diego on Sunday, July 28. The AAJ Admiralty Law Section is presenting a CLE program for attorney education and Richard was invited to speak. His topic is “Using FRCP 4(k)(2) to Obtain Personal Jurisdiction Over Foreign Defendants.”
Richard is a veteran trial lawyer with over 30 years of experience handling personal injury and wrongful death cases focusing on maritime and offshore claims. His understanding of how to try and win these cases is enhanced by his prior personal work experience as a deckhand on towboats, a roustabout worker on offshore vessels and oil platforms, and as a U.S. Navy officer on an aircraft carrier.
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.
