I served over 20 years on active duty with the U.S. Coast Guard, which included 5 years aboard Coast Guard Cutter ACACIA, working as the navigator on this World War II era, seagoing buoy tender and ice breaker. In addition to my shipboard experience, I investigated marine casualties, prosecuted suspension & revocation cases and served as the chief of the Great Lakes Regional Exam Center. This background provides me with the experience to evaluate and advise you on your maritime matter...

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
