Our attorneys have worked in the maritime field for thirty years.

We represent a wide range of clients, including those involved in the energy and transportation industries, in matters governed by admiralty law. These matters include:

  • Jones Act Claims
  • 905(b) Claims
  • General Maritime Law Claims
  • Salvage
  • Product Liability Claims
  • Well Blow Outs
  • Lost Treasures
  • Employment Discrimination

For years, our attorneys have been presenters at the Greater New Orleans Barge Fleeting Association (GNOBFA) maritime seminar on admiralty law, insurance, conducting marine investigations, and privileges.

ABC Night Line did a story on the case of Nathan Smith v. The Abandoned Vessel. The firm represented Smith, who asserted the right to own and salvage a lost treasure ship from the 1700's. After a bench trial, the federal district court determined that the ship was located in navigable waters of the United States and had been abandoned. In their report on the case, ABC kindly referred to Schwartz, Junell, Greenberg & Oathout, LLP as one of the most prestigious law firms in Houston, Texas.
