The Florida maritime law attorneys at the Law Offices of Howard Rubinstein handle a wide range of maritime matters, from maritime liens to vessel financing, operation, construction and re-building disputes. Also called “admiralty law,” maritime law is a separate body of law under the U.S. legal system. We stay up to date on the changes in admiralty law, including understanding the complexities and nuances of legislative changes related to the Jones Act and other significant maritime laws.
