OAHU ADMIRALITY / MARITIME LAWYERS
Back to Legal Assistance

Admiralty Law, also called Maritime Law, is the distinct body of law that governs navigation and shipping. As vessels sail across seas and oceans between nations and on seas that no nation owns, this body of law is private international in nature and based on agreements between nations.

In the United States, jurisdiction over Maritime Law rests with federal courts, which do not use juries. Cases are usually handled by Admiralty Law specialists (Admiralty/Maritime Lawyers), sometimes called “proctors”.

The areas covered by Admiralty or Maritime Law include:

  • Shipping Navigation Waters Commerce Seamen Passengers and cargoes Towage Salvage Wharves, piers, and docks Insurance Maritime liens Canals Piracy (ship hijacking) Fisheries Off-shore oil and gas Water recreation
  • Injury or property damage sustained by sea or vessel

If you are involved in a case that has to do with any of the above-mentioned, you should get in touch with a lawyer specializing in Maritime/Admiralty Law. A list of such lawyers in Oahu is given below.
