The three originating partners of the firm started their careers with the maritime firm of Emmett, Cobb, Waits & Kessenich, which was formed in 1977. The firm remained intact for over 25 years, and grew from a solo practice to a firm with over a dozen lawyers. With the inevitable departure of firm members to pursue other opportunities, the firm was dissolved and Waits, Emmett & Popp was formed in 2008. Jordan Teich was named as a partner in September 2012. We have the experience and training necessary to handle a full range of cases from a single personal injury claim to a maritime disaster involving significant losses while providing individual attention to our clients that can only be found in a small firm.
