Hiring An Experienced Houston Jones Act Lawyer

When choosing your Jones Act lawyers, of course, make sure that they specialize in these types of cases and that they are well versed in maritime law. A past track record of success in Jones Act cases can be a valuable indicator that your chosen attorney is the right choice. At The Dwyer Law Firm we accept Jones Act cases on a contingency basis. We only collect fees if you win your case. Any good Jones Act attorney should work this way.

The Jones Act attorney that you choose will be your advocate through the entire claims process, up to and including trial.

In Texas, Jones Act cases are given preferential trial settings. Because of this practice, which allows us to expedite your Jones Act case, the responsible parties are inclined to offer an acceptable settlement agreement more quickly than in other Gulf Coast states.
