$32,500 SETTLEMENT OBTAINED IN A SEAMAN’S WAGE CLAIM
Vessel owner failed to make a written fishing agreement with the plaintiff seamen prior to leaving port as the law requires. Without a written agreement, under the current law, the seamen were entitled to the highest rate of pay at the port. Because the seamen deckhands were paid less than the full share received by other deckhands on the vessel, The Kaplan/Bond Group was able to obtain $32,500.

Stewart v. Dutra Landmark Case Our most recent landmark victory was achieved before the United States Supreme Court in the case of Stewart v. Dutra Const. Co. The ruling we achieved changed the law and expanded the rights of injured seamen nationwide.

Convincing Hi-Tech Presentations
We’re not merely on the cutting edge of multimedia trial advocacy – we forge it. Our multimedia approach to trial advocacy goes far beyond a picture being worth a thousand words. Our presentation techniques incorporate the use of 3D animation, “60-minute” style witness interviews, and meticulous legal writing to hit hard and severely diminish the insurance companies’ ability to defend against the truth. We have been complimented by judges, adversaries, and even the insurance adjusters that run the defense leading to favorable results and courtroom victories.
