Frank Lamothe and Richard Martin are considered some of the best 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.
At Lamothe Law Firm, maritime personal injury claims represent a large portion of our trial practice. Although our attorneys are also admitted to practice in Mississippi and Texas, where coastal federal district and state county courts have some maritime cases, Lamothe Law Firm is home-based in New Orleans, which is the heart of maritime litigation in America.
Over the years, Mr. Martin has written many maritime law articles for the Louisiana Association for Justice publication, “Louisiana Advocates.” Here are just a few:
