Maritime law is the major focus of the firm. The firm handles collision cases, tower’s liability, cargo, property damage, and cases involving marine insurance and all cases involving general maritime law jurisdiction. As part of its maritime practice, the firm defends all claims by maritime workers including seaman’s claims, longshoreman and harbor workers claims, and other claims related to maritime employment.

The attorneys at Waits, Emmett, Popp, & Teich represent companies who operate on oceanic waters as well as smaller, more local bodies of water. The firm combines international and United States law to solve the issues at hand, differing the approach on a case by case basis. No two admiralty law cases are the same, and we treat it as such.
