Our Mission

    Founded by Mansfield Davis, for over a half century these offices have been dedicated to providing the highest quality of personal representation  in state and federal trial and appellate courts to those who have suffered injury upon the high seas, or the navigable waters of the United States.   We provide legal services to merchant seamen, longshoremen and harbor workers,  recreational and professional fishermen, boaters, divers, and crew and passengers of cruise ships.  We also provide legal representation to persons in general civil litigation matters including motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, public entity liability, discrimination, wrongful termination, insurance disputes, and civil rights violations.
