Miami Admiralty & Maritime Law Attorney

Dedicated to Resolving Maritime Legal Issues

Success in maritime and admiralty law claims and cruise line lawsuits requires more than just knowledge of the law and the court system. You must also understand shipboard operations and procedures as well as how cruise ship accidents occur and how cargo damage occurs whether on land, in the air or on the water. It is a complex area of law that takes years to master.

At Michael C. Black, P.A., our lawyer has decades of experience in all aspects of maritime and transportation law. From our Miami office, we represent businesses and individuals across Florida the United States, and throughout the international community in many types of admiralty and maritime claims and legal issues.
